Wild Lawsuit: Ashley Dupre Wants $10M From Joe Francis

by at . Comments

Ashley Alexandra Dupre, the New Jersey hooker at the center of the New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer scandal, filed a lawsuit Monday against Girls Gone Wild owner Joe Francis for exploiting her name and image for profit.

The suit seeks more than $10 million in damages.

In legal documents, Ashley Alexandra Dupre claims Girls Gone Wild reps came up to her while she was vacationing in Florida in 2003 and offered her alcohol before inducing her to expose her breasts and sign a waiver.

All while she was underage at just 17. Classy organization.

Since 2003, when this occurred, Girls Gone Wild has illegally exploited the name of Ashley Dupre - or so her lawsuit claims - as well as her picture, voice and likeness in a number of "deceptive advertising campaigns."

Joe Francis - who was willing to pay Ashley Dupre $1 million to pose naked for his videos before realizing, y'know, she already had in 2003 - had no comment.

The multi-millionaire bag of sleaze was just released from a Nevada jail last month, and continues to face federal tax evasion charges in that state.

He is currently fighting separate charges in Florida for allegedly filming underage girls in Panama City. Joe Francis has claimed that the girls in question lied about their age and that he is therefore not liable.

Ashley Dupre, who turns 23 this week, has not appeared publicly since the Eliot Spitzer scandal broke and it was revealed that she exchanges sex for money at a staggeringly high rate - thousands of dollars an hour!

Joe Francis Quotes

It is incomprehensible that Ms. Dupré could claim she did not give her consent to be filmed by Girls Gone Wild, when in fact we have videotape of her giving consent, while showing her identification.
