‘Girls Gone Wild’ Files Bankruptcy to Fight Vegas Debt


The company behind the “Girls Gone Wild” videos filed for bankruptcy to protect itself from a $10.3 million debt claimed by Steve Wynn’s Wynn Las Vegas LLC and a $5.8 million award won by a woman who says the company used naked images of her without permission.

Last year, Wynn and his company won a slander lawsuit against Joe Francis, founder of the “Girls Gone Wild” franchise, which features college-age women in reality TV-style shows focused on drinking, stripping and sex.

“The court finds that Francis made a knowing and intentional false and defamatory statement,” a Nevada judge ruled in April in awarding $7.5 million to Wynn and Wynn Las Vegas. Francis lied when he claimed he had proof that Wynn tricked high-end gamblers, the judge ruled.
Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo........... Fear not though. It looks like they are just doing it to reorganize.

Remember this guy is the former boyfriend of Paris Hilton
and broke into her house once....he got an MBA from USC
to envision his business and he discovered after 2 years in USC
grad school that "sex sells"...and he sold it and made so much money, the money possessed him to gamble and ignore his attorney's advice about who he put on video.
Next month he will be serving drinks at the conservative CPAC
convention and shinning Senator Rubio's shoes until they
match his shiny cuban teeth.

It's just videos of girls getting naked. Rarely two girls might make out with one another. ZOMG! Shut up and take my money!... not.

Who actually buys that stuff? Not really compelling material or nothing everyone hasn't seen before.

I'm surprised GGW wasn't bankrupted long ago. Surely by now teenage boys know they can find plenty of vids of girls flashing the camera for free on the internet? What's been keeping this company afloat all these years?
I would scream just to be heard, as if yelling at the stars - I was bleeding just to feel.
You would never say a word, kept me reaching in the dark - always something to conceal.

Wasn't Francis in jail for filming an underage girl.

I don't remember where I saw it but there is a 'Guys gone wild' videos too. Before you ask, no I haven't seen it and was wondering if it was the same guy. :/

Regardless of what you think of him on a personal level, you have to admire and appreciate the work he did to bring exposure to the going wild community.

They'll just have to sell their assets.
Maybe if everyone who'd ever been close to you had died, you'd be sarcastic, too.

HD naked young wiggly wanton girls in a natural setting...hard to hate that. Hope for the sake of future generations that this work is carried on, but with an age check please.
