"Girls Gone Wild" Founder Joe Francis Has a Sex Tape

How’s this for karma?

Joe Francis, the founder of your parents’ worst nightmare, “Girls Gone Wild,” has a private sex tape which is getting shopped around against his wishes.

The video, which TMZ is calling a “brand new hardcore sex tape,” was reportedly filmed this year, just weeks ago, featuring Joe with his girlfriend Abbey Wilson. (Abbey won the “Girls Gone Wild” brand’s “Search for the Hottest Girl in America” contest last year.)

The footage is being taken to various media outlets and contains several sex scenes, but Joe has nothing to do with the tape’s release, he insisted to TMZ. He’s doing all he can to keep the video from going public; threatening the individual who he claims stole it from Abbey, right from her bag at Los Angeles International Airport.

“It is not only unfortunate, but it is a crime,” Joe’s lawyer, David Houston, told TMZ. “As such, this office will take all necessary steps to determine who in fact has done this and who is attempting to distribute the video.”

Joe and his team are already in contact with the authorities and plan to prosecute whoever’s shopping it around to the fullest extent of the law.
