Steve Wynn, Pimp?

The saga of Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis vs Steve Wynn has gotten a hot beef injection of spicy and sticky proportions, all of which is playing out neatly in the pages of TMZ.com.

Mr. Francis, who was recently sued by Wynn Las Vegas to recoup the remainders of an unpaid $2.8M marker, raised allegations that Mr. Wynn (through VIP host Larry Altschul) provided boobs, booze and blow* to keep Francis on property and gambling.

Wynn Las Vegas reps had this to say:

The claims made in the counter suit by Joe Francis are not only false but scurrilous beyond imagination.

Wynn slammed back with a bizarrely small $10,000 defamation lawsuit, probably about as much as the Francis lost per hand of Blackjack during his marker signing whirlwind.

Should we send Wynn a box of "Girls Gone Wild" DVDs on his birthday in January?

* Francis says 'illicit drugs'. Blow added for alliterative purposes.



Comments & Discussion:

Let's see here. Joe Francis recently pleaded "not guilty" in Federal court on tax evasion charges. His trial is scheduled to start next month in L.A. The not guilty plea bought him some time to devise a strategy, so why not try to throw Steve Wynn (and Wynn Resorts) under the bus in hopes that maybe something will stick and he could reach a plea deal with the Feds on the tax evasion charges. He just ought to be glad that the crooked Sheriff in Bay County, Florida doesn't still have him locked up on those trumped up charges.

Wynn must be a pimp, who else uses the word "scurrilous"?
