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?

Whose side are you on?

"I'm the victim." - Joe Francis

Yes, the put-upon Girls Gone Wild founder is trying to paint himself as a sympathetic figure in the aftermath of the epic nightclub melee the other night that resulted in words - and blows - being exchanged with Brody Jenner.

"Brody hit me in the face," Francis says of the incident, which took place outside the Hollywood nightclub Guys and Dolls and ended with Jenner being tasered.

Jenner says Francis kicked and punched Jayde Nicole, his Playmate girlfriend. This happened, according to witnesses, after she threw a drink in Francis' face.

She did this because in her opinion, Joe was paying too much attention to his ex (and her BFF), model Abbey Wilson. But Francis says he didn't hit anyone.

He "may have accidentally grabbed [Nicole's] hair" as he was turning around after having a drink poured on him, Francis told E! News, but that was the only contact he had with anyone. He says that surveillance footage will back him up.

"Someone shoved me from behind, then hurled a drink at me, glass and all," poor Joe Francis said after the fact. "I turned to see who that was, and the next thing I knew, I was on the ground, with Brody Jenner ripping at my shirt."

"The security guards told me that they saw the whole thing, and apologized to me for the trouble. They even offered me a new Guys and Dolls T-shirt."

Security was helping Francis to his car when he says Brody Jenner "cold-cocked" him. At some point during the ensuing rumble, someone took a taser to Jenner.

Francis says he's considering legal action against Jenner for the "false, outrageous, and slanderous" accusation (via Twitter) that Francis pummeled Jayde Nicole.

"I've never hit a girl in my life," Joe says, "and the accusation disgusts me."

But, since he couldn't possibly take the high road without getting in a sleazy dig, Joe says Brody has the "smallest penis in Hollywood" and that only a low caliber person "dates a girl with the word respect tattooed above her vagina."

She really does. Photos of Jayde Nicole naked prove this.

Whose side are you on?

Brody Jenner and his girlfriend, Playboy Playmate of the Year 2008 Jayde Nicole, apparently got into an epic fight outside of Guys and Dolls this morning.

Not with each other. It was both of them against the slimy Joe Francis.

Here's how it went down, according to Brody: he and Jayde were at the club celebrating his birthday when Jayde saw Joe hitting on an ex, "unrelentingly."

An ex-girlfriend of Francis', that is, but one Jayde Nicole and Brody know, and felt Joe was harassing. Jayde then stepped in and threw a drink on Francis.

Francis responded by pulling Jayde's hair, smacking her in the face and shoving her to the ground, where he proceeded to kick her. What an a$$hole!

Security broke it up and Francis was dragged off, but Brody was irate. He started yelling at Francis and trying to get at him until both men were ejected.

We can only cross our fingers that The Hills was being filmed at the time.

Joe Francis allegedly beat up Jayde Nicole at a club early this morning.

Outside the club, Brody tried to get back in to check on Jayde but security wouldn't let him. Jenner then saw and got a clear shot at Joe Francis, punching him in the face. Someone then tasered Brody and he collapsed to the ground.

Francis left the scene, where the cops came, but no one was arrested.

Jayde Nicole, who has a black and blue cheek, a swollen face, a bruised left rib and a sore lower abdomen, says she will press charges against Francis.

Brody Jenner took to (what else) Twitter to speak out this morning: "Joe Francis beat up my lady for no reason! Pulled her to the ground, punched & kicked her. what does that say about him. you call yourself a man when you beat up a girl??"

"Joe Francis is a piece of sh!t. Joe Francis needs to be in jail!!!"

No arguments here. Hey, he was there once before.

Girls Gone Wild honcho Joe Francis and Brody Jenner were apparently involved in a bar brawl at a Los Angeles club on Wednesday evening.

Sources say the argument broke out at the hot spot My House after Francis accidentally hit Brody’s girlfriend, model Jayde Nicole, in the head.

"Francis reached out to grab Brody and ended up hitting Jayde in the head," a source says. "Brody defended her, and it turned into a huge fight."

Adds another, "Security dragged Francis out. Joe hit Jayde and was making death threats against Brody. Brody Jenner has filed a police report."

Brody was likely there celebrating Whitney Port's birthday.

Playboy Party

In a statement, the creepy Francis tells Us Weekly: "I went to give Brody a hug, and I guess my elbow accidentally bumped the back of his girlfriend's head. I didn’t even know that happened until this morning. I was shocked."

"Brody and I are longtime friends," Francis goes on.

"I think he was a little drunk, and he started yelling at me, but it's all okay. He was angry. Brody's girlfriend is the type of girl that gets off creating drama."

"She was winding him up. There was no physical altercation. I would never threaten to beat him up or get in a fight. The whole thing was 20 seconds."

Security reportedly kicked him of the club.

When the celebrity gossip world last saw Joe Francis, he was embroiled in a lawsuit with Ashley Dupre, hiring Holly Montag (sister of Heidi) as his new assistant, and generally making a huge, wholly unwelcome ass out of himself.

Hard as it is to believe, someone would actually, willingly like to see Francis again. U.S. District Judge S. James Otero issued a warrant for the Girls Gone Wild CEO arrest today after he failed to show up in court and could not be reached.

Francis, Joe

Francis was needed for a hearing to decide whether his lawyers could remove themselves from his tax evasion case, due to “strategic differences of opinion.”

Joe Francis is a leading expert in getting (often underage) girls out of their clothes in a hurry. Here, he puts on some of said clothes for a disturbing picture.

The lowlife’s trial, which concerns his decision to make $20-30 million in allegedly phony deductions from 2002 to 2003, is scheduled to to begin on March 31.

Hopefully, Joe Francis can find a firm that can represent him with a straight face by then. Or not. Even the Mark Vincent Kaplans of the world have standards.

Looks like the entertainment world's Sultan of Sleaze has gotten his hands on a new girl ... to help manage his busy schedule, that is.

Holly Montag, the older sister of Heidi Montag from The Hills, has been hired as the personal assistant to the Girls Gone Wild CEO.

Bearded

She's been at it since his release from jail in March.

"His last assistant quit," said an insider to the New York Post. "And Joe aggressively sought out Holly Montag to work for him."

Another source said of Holly and Joe, "She's running his life."

Holly Montag with The Hills' Heidi Montag.

Francis - who is preparing to do battle on Celebrity Apprentice next season, and might also appear on The Hills this season, rumor has it - told the Post, "Holly is fantastic, probably the best assistant I have ever had."

You can read into that however you want.

Either way, Spencer Pratt is probably psyched about this arrangement. Not because he cares about Francis, but because Holly is out of his hair.

Former N.Y. Gov. Eliot Spitzer thought Ashley Dupre was hot enough to fork over $4,300/hour and a career in politics for. We'll soon get a chance to see why.

Now that Ashley Dupre dropped her lawsuit (for $10 million) against Joe Francis and Girls Gone Wild, the sleazy entrepreneur says he's now got him "the green light" to release her crazy skin show from Spring Break 2003.

Ashley Dupre the Whore

For those who may have forgotten, Francis offered Dupre $1 million to bare all for his videos and mags as soon as the Spitzer call-girl scandal broke. He then discovered that he had file footage of her when she was 17, natch.

Joe says he's got footage of Ashley Dupre in "some very interesting sexual situations." Maybe he and Eliot Spitzer can meet up and compare notes.

Follow the jump for some still photos of Ashley Dupre nude from the Girls Gone Wild vault. Odds are this is just the beginning of what Joe's got ...

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.

Lawyers for Girls Gone Wild sleazebag Joe Francis have subpoenaed Ashley Alexandra Dupre, a.k.a. Eliot Spitzer's hooker, to testify under oath, on video, about her shady and sordid dealings with a prostitution ring.

Following her rise to fame as Spitzer's call girl du jour, Dupre filed a $10 million suit against Francis after GGW offered her $1 million - and then rescinded the deal after they found video of her in their vaults.

Reality Star Hodgepodge

Ashley Dupre, 23, had partied with Joe Francis and the GGW gang while she was a teenager, years ago, in Florida. Naturally.

Lawyers for Girls Gone Wild plan to grill Ashley Dupre on a litany of topics.

Their goal is to prove that her previous use of fake names, fake IDs, fake web sites and much more will damage the shady lady's credibility.

Is Audrina Patridge ready to go wild - Ashley Dupre syle?

It doesn't look like it. Even though her modeling past includes racy nude pictures, it appears even a big money offer from Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis to model for his company isn't enough to entice The Hills star.

Audrina For Bongo

Joe Francis reportedly tried to talk business with Audrina Patridge at this night's five-year anniversary party for Dolce restaurant in Los Angeles.

He didn't get far.

"Tell her I'm legit," Francis was overheard repeating to mutual friends, trying to get Audrina to take him and his offer seriously.

As legit as a man who videotapes drunk, topless teen girls, and faces felony charges in multiple states at the same time can be, anyway.

On another note, the buzz over Patridge's arrival at the club matched the intensity of what much bigger stars usually generate. The paparazzi could not get enough shots of Audrina and boyfriend Justin-Bobby.

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.
