Ashley Dupre Drops Lawsuit Against Joe Francis

by at . Comments

Ashley Alexandra Dupre, the highly overpaid hooker at the center of the call girl scandal that forced the resignation of New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, has officially withdrawn her $10 million lawsuit against Joe Francis.

The suit, originally filed in April, claimed that Ashley Dupre's name and image had been exploited for profit by the Girls Gone Wild founder.

Ashley Dupre the Whore

"Ms. Dupré wants to eliminate all negativity from her life and focus on the positive," her attorney, Richard C. Wolfe, said in a statement.

"She has prospects for many exciting new projects coming up this year and is looking forward to starting a new chapter in her life."

The lawsuit alleged that Ashley Dupre was duped into signing a release form and exposing her breasts for Girls Gone Wild cameras in 2003, when she was just 17.

THG NOTE: There was no doubt about her consent in going topless for the New York Post (above), once her tryst with Eliot Spitzer was exposed, however.

Joe Francis asserted that Ashley Dupre gave her consent on video when the footage was taken, and provided his camera crew with ID that showed she was 18. Francis later released video clips that supported those assertions.
