Francis "Breaking Down" Under Cop Killer's Taunts

4/23/2007 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Francis' booking photo.Joe Francis is reportedly going crazy in jail -- literally -- under the withering verbal assault of a convicted cop killer who's going wild, taunting Francis day and night with shouts of "Girls Gone Wild! Joe Francis! Whoo!"

What's more, the pimpresario is having "full-blown anxiety attacks" and is "breaking down," his lawyer tells the News-Herald of Panama City, Fla. He is isolated in a cold cell with only a towel and a blanket to keep him warm. And the poor, poor multimillionaire's plight is being exacerbated by his jail ward-mate, Robert Bailey, who has been sentenced to die for killing a police officer. Bailey, according to Aaron Dyer, Francis' lawyer, "would sit there and yell, 'Girls Gone Wild! Joe Francis! Whoo!"

Last week, said Dyer, Francis missed the medication cart and "went into a full-blown anxiety attack."

Francis is in federal court at this very moment, facing the judge who threw him in the slammer on criminal contempt charges on April 10. Sources tell TMZ that even if he does get released by this judge, he may well be arrested by the county sheriff on charges of bringing drugs and cash into his jail cell, and that he may be picked up as soon as he walks out of court.

I can't believe it; they stuck joe "I'm a pornographer, show me your t*ts" francis in with a convicted cop killer (who's verbally abusing him)? As much as I hate to admit it (as I'm not a vindictive person), it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy; it's total Karma. This guy's probably looking to make little joey his bitch; now francis knows how it feels to be used and exploited.

Good luck, joey. I said it before, and I'll say it again; meet your new cell mate, Ben Dover...

He truly is a dirt-bag and will get everything he deserves...I think this will play out with Joe doing some "serious" time.

As much as I loathe Joe, I do not hate hot-naked-young-chics acting wild...I couldn't pass up passing along this link:

Check out the designer of his $20 million house in Mexico:

Martyn Lawrence Bullard
Born in England, Martyn Lawrence Bullard moved to Los Angeles eight years ago. He started his U.S. career as an actor, but found his true calling as an interior designer after designing a film producer's office. Martyn is now a "designer to the stars," with clients such as Ed Norton and Christina Aguilera. His style epitomizes Hollywood extravagance and glamour — he even lives in the former home of film star Gloria Swanson. Often seen on the celebrity circuit, Martyn boasts that he is a friend and confidante to whomever he designs for. His projects in the series include creating a $20 million ultimate bachelor pad for Girls Gone Wild owner Joe Frances

I have absolutely no sympathy for this loser - he's getting exactly what he deserves. The only thing that could make this better is if Parisite gets the same treatment. She has been getting away with way too much for way too long - time to pay the piper!
