playboy hat sunglasses flip flops

At least that's what her shirt says! We spotted the Playboy Playmate with her beau Brody Jenner out and about in LA yesterday afternoon looking like a happy couple...

Guess they hadn't yet heard about Joe Francis filing a counter-suit against them! (Joe previously told us of his plans about two weeks ago.)

Apparently, Joe is claiming that Jayde Nicole hit him in the head at Guys and Dolls that fateful night, threw a drink at him and screamed, "I'm going to kill you!" Therefore - according to the lawsuit - he grabbed Jayde's hair in "self-defense."

Joe also claims that Brody Jenner attacked him later that night in "a jealous rage."

Uh, I dunno about Brody, but we saw the security tape from that night and it clearly looked like Joe attacked Jayde. Seriously!
