In what can be seen as either irony or poetic justice, “Girls Gone Wild” meanie Joe Francis is livid that a sex tape is making the rounds that involves he and his girlfriend Abbey Wilson. How embarrassing for her! Who in the world would want to admit sleeping with that guy?
According to TMZ, no one is exactly sure who is shopping it around, but Francis insists it ain’t him and he is going to sue them once he finds out. Yes, you heard that right: this from a guy who has been sued for filming underage women flashing for the camera.
He also could really use a cash infusion, so let’s hope this isn't an elaborate ruse to get even more attention for the tape which mysteriously surfaced after Wilson’s iPad was allegedly stolen. Hmm.
