Girls Gone Wild owner Joe Francis is not new to the lawsuit game and will set out to prove that to Eliot Spitzer‘s former call girl, Ashley Alexander Dupre.

It is incomprehensible that Ms. Dupre could claim she did not give her consent to be filmed by Girls Gone Wild, when in fact we have videotape of her giving consent, while showing her identification.”
Still looking for that 15 minutes of fame, Dupre should have considered Joe’s first offer of $1 million for a GGW photo shoot and tour. It looks like Ashley thought her goods were worth WAY more. We’re guessing she’s not going to get a dime. Joe made a really interesting comment on the matter:

We are guessing that Ashley’s singing career must not be going as planned. The former call girl should really consider Joe’s first offer. When all is said and done, she’s likely to eat crow either way.
