"Girls Gone Wild" mogul's own sex tape up for grabs

The malevolent founder of the Girls Gone Wild empire, Joe Francis is about to discover that turnabout is fair play. You see, Francis' former girlfriend Paris Hilton forgot to pay her long-term storage bill, so the creditor she tried to stiff is auctioning off the contents of her locker including a steamy home movie performance co-starring Joe Francis. Payback sure is sweet.

Evan Adds:

My first question was: does he care? I mean, if his business is getting women to expose themselves, won't his reaction just be: well, that's how it goes...

Turns out, he does care. A lot:

The celebutard and "Girls Gone Wild" creator Joe Francis have amassed a pit-bull legal team to attack the creators of parisexposed. com - a pay-to-view Web site boasting Hilton's most cringe-worthy memorabilia, including porn videos made during their months-long courtship.
"We're pissed and I feel for Paris right now. She's been victimized yet again," Francis told The Post yesterday. "We want this thing down and we're seeking monetary damages."
Francis said that videos of him with a topless Hilton were only intended for their eyes, and that the sex-crazed heiress is "devastated" that they've been made available to the public.
"They were taken for us only when we were dating," Francis said. "These guys have absolutely no right to use the images - they flat-out put them on the Web with no permission. He messed with the wrong person."
Not only that, but the GGW enterprise has met with resistance in Indiana. A local group urged a club to cancel an event by threatening to videotape it for screening at their next liquor board review.

Details on how to do that for the next dozen GGW events are HERE.
