Girls Gone Wild Producer Files $25 Million Lawsuit Against Woman Who Falsely Claimed Rape 'This is a Vicious, Untrue Allegation from Which the facts and Witnesses

Vindicate Me and I Won't Sit Back and Be Called a Rapist.'



    SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- "Girls Gone Wild" producer
 Joe Francis today filed a $25,000,036.00 defamation lawsuit against a Texas
 woman who accused him of drugging and raping her in Miami, Florida on
 March 12, 2004.  Mr. Francis previously said through a spokesman that the
 charges were untrue.  He said not only was the sex he had with this woman
 consensual, but after she awoke the next day she stayed for over 2 hours and
 ate a hamburger and French fries, which was ordered from the hotel's room
 service.
     The suit, filed today in Miami, Florida, details the many inconsistencies
 in the woman's statements to police and the media.  Amy Doe, as she is
 identified in the suit, claimed that she and a friend met Francis at Club
 Bench in South Beach at approximately 2:00 AM.  Francis however met the women
 at Mynt, where he was accompanied by six friends and his bodyguard, who is
 also an active police officer.  The group returned to Francis' hotel where he
 had consensual sex with Doe in the suite's bedroom, while her friend and
 Francis' bodyguard were in the same suite.  The next morning Doe claimed she
 awoke unaware of the previous night's activities and ran from the room for the
 hospital with her friend.  However, as the suit details and witnesses can
 attest, Amy Doe and her friend stayed and cordially chatted with Mr. Francis
 the following morning and, in fact, stayed for almost two hours while they
 waited for their lunch from room service.  Before leaving, Amy Doe wrote down
 her telephone number for Francis and encouraged him to call.
     "This is a vicious, untrue allegation from which the facts and witnesses
 vindicate me," Mr. Francis said. "I won't sit back and be called a rapist.
 Rape is a very serious crime that I personally find disgusting.  As a son, and
 as the brother to three sisters I love very much, I would NEVER have sex with
 a woman without her consent."
     Mr. Francis added, "I not only want to be compensated for $25 million for
 damages to my reputation and my business caused by these absurd allegations,
 but I also want to be reimbursed for the $36 I spent on the hamburgers and
 fries these women devoured before they left my hotel room.  If she was going
 to make up a story that she had been raped, she should have mentioned it
 before she asked me to buy her and a friend lunch."
