Sure, he's made a fortune from his Girls Gone Wild empire and he's actually pretty attractive, but isn't he supposed to be a major d-bag?

His marriage to TV host Christina McLarty lasted about one month (the two split in November of 2010) and after the Jayde Nicole hair-pulling incident in 2009 (not to mention his jail time for tax evasion!) Joe Francis isn't exactly the kind of guy you want to bring home to mom. I guess this young lady doesn't seem to care, as we spotted her waiting with Joe at the Barneys New York valet over the weekend. How on earth does he get such hot (and young!) girls to follow him everywhere he goes?!

The couple got married in Punta Mita, Mexico at an estate owned by Francis.

Just before the wedding, Francis told Us, "My fiancee and I are the best of friends, just like Khloe and Lamar, and the next step for us to go down the aisle is only natural!"

Good times aside, Francis has had numerous run-ins with the law including pleading guilty to contempt of court back in April 2007 and spending time in a Florida jail. He also faced money issues after a federal grand jury in Reno indicted him on charges of tax evasion. Last year on August 28, Francis allegedly attacked Brody Jenner's then-girlfriend Jayde Nicole at Guys and Dolls nightclub in Los Angeles. Even though there was video of the incident, Authorities didn't press charges, however Francis and Nicole sued each other for assault and battery. The case is ongoing.

Francis Will Avoid Further Jail Time

Nov 6, 2009 09:49 AM


After pleading guilty to two misdemeanor counts of filing false tax returns, a judge in Los Angeles has sentenced Joe Francis to time served, meaning he won't spend any more time in jail.

Francis already served a year in prison for felony tax evasion after his CFO, Michael Barrett called the authorities on Francis for what Joe claims was an attempt to cover Barrett's own attempt to defraud Girls Gone Wild out of millions.

Between this resolution and the fact that the LA DA won't be pursuing criminal charges against him for the alleged Jayde beat-down, this means Francis is a free man!
