Move Over, Chris Brown: Girls Gone Wild Founder Attacks Playmate

August 28, 2009

Joe Francis, the founder of Girls Gone Wild, reportedly “flipped out” and attacked Playboy’s 2008 Playmate of the Year Jayde Nicole in a Hollywood club early this morning.

According to reports, Jayde apparently threw a drink at Francis after witnessing him harass a girl at Guys and Dolls, a club in West Hollywood. Francis became enraged, pulled Jayde’s hair, punched her in the face, and kicked her to the ground:

He [Francis] was punching her in the face, and then when she fell to the ground he was kicking her with all his force. It was insane. People were screaming and Joe's friends were trying to pull him off her, but he wouldn't stop. A friend of Jayde's tried to stop Joe but he ended up hitting her too.

Jayde’s boyfriend, reality television star Brody Jenner, tried to intervene but was stopped by security. Both Jenner and Francis were subsequently thrown out of the club, where Jenner purportedly punched Francis in the face. Jayde was seen leaving the club in tears, badly bruised and battered. She told TMZ she plans to press charges.
