Joe Francis has always seemed like a John Mayer-esque douchebag. But new legal document ratchet up the insults against the Girls Gone Wild founder to a whole new level.

As first reported by TMZ, 4th Street Media - the publishing company behind an upcoming tell-all written by Ryan Simkin, a former Francis employee Ryan Simkin - has filed legal papers in preparation of Francis' attempt to block sales of Simkin's book, "FLASH! Bars, Boobs, and Busted: 5 Years on the Road with Girls Gone Wild."

Multiple sources have referred to Joe Francis as a rapist. It doesn't get much more scandalous than that.

The memoir outlines obnoxiously lewd stories about Francis and his associates, specifically their drug use and treatment of women.

Filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, the documents describe Francis as:

Christina McLarty is engaged to Joe Francis for some reason.

Regardless of what the heck she's thinking, Joe, who proposed earlier this summer, knows exactly what inspired him to take the plunge: Khlodom.

Close friends Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom spend a lot of time with them and helped show the Girls Gone Wild douche what life's really about.

Christina McLarty is marrying Joe Francis. Willingly!

"Khloe and Lamar make such an amazing couple. You see their energy together is real and true love," Francis gushed, apparently seriously. "Just spending time with [Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom] is full of happiness and laughter."

Of Christina McLarty, he adds, "My fiancee and I are the best of friends, just like Khloe and Lamar, and the next step for us to go down the aisle is only natural!"

Upon hearing of Joe's engagement, Khloe Tweeted simply: "U will love marriage!" Cute, but we would suggest she Tweet Christina "Think Be4 U Trust Some1."

Joe Francis has been named the Douche of the Decade by a prominent celebrity gossip site. He's cool with that - but not about Gawker calling him a rapist.

The Girls Gone Wild kingpin is vowing to sue the site for $10 million after it referred to him as "a rapist" while crowning him the winner of its recent poll.

Incidentally, Francis received 32 percent of the nearly 9,000 votes cast. We would have probably bet on a different douchebag, but Joe is very deserving.

"You messed with the wrong guy. No one makes up lies about me and gets away with it," an irate, douchey Francis e-mailed Gawker founder Nick Denton.

"I lost a $10 million deal as a direct result of you calling me 'a rapist.' You will be paying me every dime of that back and more! Are you mentally retarded?"

"Do your research first," the sleaze added. "I am coming at you harder than I ever went after anyone. I am going to wipe you off the grid! YOU ARE DONE!"

DOUCHE OF THE DECADE: In the end, there was little competition.

"You, Nick Denton, are truly the douche of the decade. Merry Xmas IDIOT!!!"

And with those words, Joe officially earned his Douche of the Decade crown.

Francis attached a shirtless pic of himself (above), adding, "I sent you an updated picture of how I look ... because you seem to be sexually obsessed with me."

Alright then.

Francis told Page Six that the Gawker line were directly responsible for him losing a $10 million distribution deal, as if that were even remotely possible.

"They used Wikipedia as their source. It's pathetic," said Francis, who has never been formally accused of rape (just tax evasion, woman-beating, etc).

Gawker managing editor Gabriel Snyder did not apologize, and said this in response to Joe's threats: "We wanted to retire the word 'douche' by crowning Joe Francis as its apotheosis, but it looks like he's determined to remain the standard-bearer."

Your move, Joe.

When he's not beating up Jayde Nicole, Joe Francis certainly isn't paying taxes.

The IRS wants some serious money from the sleaze, filing a lien against him for a staggering $33,819,087.14 in unpaid taxes from 2001, 2002 and 2003.

In 2001, the IRS says Joe didn't pay $17,658,358. In 2002, the delinquency is $11,238,582.14, and in 2003, he owes a much more modest $4,922,147.

It was less than two weeks ago that Francis got out of a sticky situation - and not the kind he's used to - copping a plea in a federal tax evasion case.

Joe responded to the move by the IRS, saying "I have no idea what it is."

He says he does not owe any money and, "This is total retaliation for me beating them in court." Joe says the law the IRS is using hasn't been used in 20 years.

He did not elaborate on what that is.

Joe Francis says Wednesday, the feds seized more than $100,000,000 in his accounts, forcing him to file for personal bankruptcy, which he will do today.

Couldn't happen to a better guy.

Joe Francis, who never met a lawsuit he didn't like (well, aside from the dozens he's named as the defendant in), is going after Brody Jenner's Playmate girlfriend.

The reasoning? He says Jayde Nicole threatened to kill him during a bar fight back in August, and now the Girls Gone Wild slime bag founder "feared for his life."

According to the lawsuit, Francis claims he was innocently walking through a crowd of people at "Guys and Dolls" nightclub in Hollywood on the night in question.

Innocently, that is, until a lurking Jayde Nicole emerged from the shadows, violently struck him in the head, threw a drink on him and said, "I'm going to kill you!"

Somehow we're guessing there was more to it than that.

Francis claims he was "startled and shocked" at the nightclub melee that broke out (and left Jenner tasered) but then he saw Jayde reaching for a bottle.

Joe Francis is suing Jayde Nicole and claiming no wrongdoing on his part.

While their accounts greatly differ, one thing that seems fairly certain here is that Jayde was pissed at Joe hitting on her BFF (and his ex-GF) Abbey Wilson.

In the documents filed in court this week, Francis claims "in fear and apprehension of being struck a third time and that Nicole was going to carry out her threat to kill him," Joe grabbed Nicole's hair (which she alleges) in "self-defense."

Joe claims Nicole fell to the ground, but only because she "lost her balance on her high heels." Not because he pummeled her senseless, as she claims.

Later, Francis claims Jenner attacked him "in a jealous rage."

Francis is now suing both Brody and Jayde for battery, assault, negligence, slander, libel and false light, because after the bar incident, Francis claims the two lied when they recounted the incident to a camera guy from a celebrity gossip site.

Whose side are you on?

Brody Jenner's girlfriend Jayde Nicole is suing Joe Francis for $1 million over the she-said, sleaze-said nightclub brawl in Hollywood last month.

Jayde and Brody claim that Joe roughed up Jayde outside Guys & Dolls after she poured a drink on him. Joe denies he attacked the Playboy model.

Nicole doused Joe in booze supposedly to discourage him from getting too close with her friend Abbey Wilson, who also happens to be Francis' ex.

Francis maintains he may have "accidentally grabbed" Jayde Nicole's hair out of surprise when she tossed her drink at him, but that this was the extent of physical contact he had, while Jenner just started wailing on him for no reason.

Joe has threatened to sue Brody Jenner for defamation. Ha.

But from Jayde Nicole's perspective, as stated in the suit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, here's what went down with the Girls Gone Wild honcho:

"In an intoxicated, uncontrollable rage, defendant Francis physically attacked plaintiff Nicole by pulling on her hair from behind to gain maximum control over her, then violently shoving and/or throwing her to the ground like a rag-doll."

Ouch.

Who's telling the truth? Who's a complete scumbag?

The model wants $1 million, plus punitive damages, to compensate her for a range of injuries, including a "black-eye, swollen face, bruised ribs, sore and bruised abdomen, bruised arms and legs, ripped-out hair, emotional distress and humiliation."

Taking time out from planning the bachelor party of Lamar Odom, who's set to marry Khloe Kardashian this weekend, Francis released this statement:

"Jayde Nicole is an absolute and total liar."

"Her prior statements about the incident are not only slanderous and defamatory, but actionable... The only thing that Jayde Nicole is famous for is having a tattoo of the word 'respect' above her vagina... for which we all know she has none of."

Guy can never resist a good dig. Reports say surveillance video may actually back up Francis' account of what happened that night, but stay tuned.

The epic nightclub melee from last week that pit Brody Jenner and Jayde Nicole against Girls Gone Wild sleaze ball Joe Francis was caught on surveillance video.

Jayde claims she threw a drink in Francis' face, only to have him kick and punch her. Joe says after the drink incident, he grabbed her hair but that was it.

According to sources, Francis may be in the right.

The video at Guys and Dolls in West Hollywood shows Jayde Nicole throwing a drink in Francis' face, and then Joe grabbing her hair as he turned around.

Jayde falls to the ground but Francis never appears to lay another hand on her, although she was trampled in the ensuing melee that broke out.

SLEAZE SAID, SHE SAID: Could Joe Francis actually be telling the truth?

The fight is said to have started because Joe was hitting on his ex, Abbey Wilson, too aggressively for her friend Jayde's taste. Jayde stepped in.

Accounts of what happened after that differ, but all parties were ejected from the club, Brody Jenner punched Francis in the face and was tasered.

Jayde filed a police report alleging Francis repeatedly hit and kicked her, and there are rumors that Joe is coaching Abbey Wilson to back him up.

But it may all be moot, as sources say the tape may not support Jayde's claim of assault at the hands of Francis. The case is under investigation.

It looks like a 911 call could help determine who's lying and who's telling the truth in the melee between Jayde Nicole, Brody Jenner and Joe Francis.

A bar fight went down 10 days ago after Joe Francis was harassing his ex, Abbey Wilson when Jayde threw a drink on him and all hell broke loose.

That's according to Brody Jenner, who punched Francis in the face, causing Francis' people (or someone, anyway) to respond with a taser on Brody.

Well, apparently at 8 p.m. the night after the fight, Abbey Wilson called 911, claiming that Joe Francis had sent over people to clean out her home.

Francis says assistant did indeed pay a visit to Wilson, along with three other dudes with a moving truck, and took furniture and other stuff away.

LAPD officers arrived and no arrests were made or charges filed, and they eventually allowed Francis' people to continue hauling away property.

Joe Francis, Abbey Wilson

Did Joe ask Abbey to lie about what happened with Jayde and Brody?

Francis says he was frustrated Abbie Wilson was "lying" about what went down. A few hours before the movers arrived, Francis sent her a text "laying out what happened" (coaching a witness, according to how some look at it).

Whatever the reason, Abbey Wilson apparently wasn't biting.

Francis was pissed, because while he was dating Wilson he says he gave her a small fortune in material possessions, including the house she was living in.

Joe says if she was going to lie out of spite, he wasn't going to let Abbey keep those gifts. But would backing up Jayde Nicole and her story even be a lie?

Wilson feels Francis wanted her to lie about what happened because Francis could go back to jail if officials feel he violated the terms of his early release.

She claims she refused to lie, and that's when Francis retaliated by sending "the guys" over. It's looking like Jayde Nicole may be telling the truth here.

Joe Francis is standing by his story about his brawl with Brody Jenner and Jayde Nicole - and allegedly making sure the key witness is on the same page.

This according to a text from Joe to Abbey obtained by TMZ.

The Hottest Couple Ever?

The text from Francis to Wilson, whose conversation triggered the nightclub melee in which Joe beat up Jayde (says she), was sent August 28 at 1:11 p.m.

The fight happened the previous night. Joe Francis wrote the text to make sure Wilson backs up his story that he didn't assault anyone and Brody's lying:

"Your statement is the truth. That jade [sic] threw a drink on me when I was talking to you and I reached around to tap on her shoulder to see who it was."

"Brody then grabed [sic] my shirt and ripped it partialy [sic] off. I curled up in a ball and covered my face. Joe never touched anyone!!! Most important!!!"

What a sleaze. Not that you would expect anything less.

Abbey Wilson used to date Joe Francis. Her self-esteem must be real high.

Francis' rep responded to the Abbey story as such:

"Abbey Wilson, Joe Francis' ex-girlfriend that he lived with for almost a year, has a little problem telling the whole truth ... Abbey conveniently omitted the last part of that text message which puts everything in context."

"The text reads: 'Also remember jade [sic] hit you the last time, don't lie for them.' Joe would never coach a witness but simply wanted Ms. Wilson to tell the truth about the incident and put aside her vendetta towards Joe."

Said vendetta against Joe Francis is apparently related to him breaking up with her and asking her to move out of his home. But no matter. The rep added:

"Joe is sick of this whole thing and just wishes his ex-girlfriend would just leave him alone, go back to Oklahoma and quit trying to make herself famous."

This "rep" is probably Joe himself. He can never resist getting in the last dig. Which is probably why he ended up getting his ass kicked by Brody Jenner.

Jayde Nicole, Playmate of the Year 2008 and girlfriend of Brody Jenner, is sticking by her side of the story regarding what went down at a club last week.

The 23-year-old Canadian model says she "beaten in the face and body" by Girls Gone Wild head honcho Joe Francis and there are witnesses to prove it.

The melee started because Francis was hitting on an ex, a girl Jayde is apparently friends with. Nicole wanted him to back off and threw a drink on him.

Francis denies assaulting her and says the only physical contact during the brawl was initiated by Jenner and Nicole. But the latter takes exception to that.

Jayde Nicole's rep just released this statement:

"On Friday, August 28 at 1:20 a.m., Jayde Nicole was the victim of a violent assault when she was attacked from behind, thrown to the ground by her hair, and beaten in the face and body in front of witnesses by a person identified as Joe Francis."

SHE SAID, SLEAZE SAID: Who do you trust less here?

"Jayde immediately reported the assault to the local authorities and is continuing to cooperate fully in the ongoing police investigation of Mr. Francis."

"Because of the ongoing criminal investigation of Mr. Francis, it will be inappropriate to comment further at this time out of respect for the process."

"Photos, videos and hospital records of Jayde's injuries and of the attack corroborate the crimes committed by Francis, and it is the hope of those who love and care about Jayde Nicole that he will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."

It's an interesting claim, as Francis also says that video and eyewitness accounts will support his side. Then again, he's Joe Francis. Can you really believe a man who gets teenage girls drunk and makes them take off their tops for money?
