Earlier this year, Joe Francis offered Ashley Alexandra Dupre $1 million to appear in his soft-porn filmsÂ after she was unmasked as Kristen, a hooker frequented by New York Gov. Spitzer, who resigned in disgrace.
Now, in a (Girls Gone) Wild twist, Joe Francis is offering Ashley Dupre $1 million again - this time to drop a $10 million lawsuit against him.
"She should keep in mind, it's considerably more than the Governor of New York paid her, and our activities aren't illegal," Francis told the Daily News, adding that Ashley Dupre has "zero" chance of winning her lawsuit.
"It is incomprehensible that Ms. Dupre could claim she did not give consent to be filmed by Girls Gone Wild, when in fact we have videotape of her giving consent, while showing her identification," Francis said.
Ashley Dupre is a bad, bad girl. Joe Francis ain't much better.
"She's seeking $10 million for topless photos taken in front of a room full of people, including ... multiple crews we had in the room. These images were taken in public places and they contain no sexual contact."
Ashley Dupre has sued the sultan of sleaze for allegedly getting her drunk and "tricking" her into disrobing for the cameras on a 2003 vacation in Florida - then using the footage in a video series without permission.
If you had to pick (extremely dirty, morally bankrupt) sides here, who would you back in this battle: Joe Francis or Ashley Dupre?
