'GGW' Lawyers

To Grill Spitzer's Girl

6/2/2008 7:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned lawyers for "Girls Gone Wild" founder Joe Francis have subpoenaed Eliot Spitzer's favorite midnight caller Ashley Dupre to testify under oath and on video about her shady and sordid dealing with a prostitution ring.


Following her spectacular rise to fame as Spitzer's call girl du jour, Dupre filed a $10 million suit against Francis and GGW after the company offered her -- and then rescinded after they discovered video of her in their vaults-- a $1 million deal. She claims "GGW" ruined her reputation.

We hear lawyers for GGW plan to grill Dupre on a litany of topics, hoping to prove that her previous use of fake names, fake IDs and fake web pages will shed light on the alleged shady lady's credibility. GGW's lawyer says after they're done with her, they're confident "any jury will view her claims as frivolous."

For his part, Francis says, "Now that we are calling on her to testify under oath, the world will learn the real truth about Ashley Dupre." Bring it on!

Dupre's New York lawyer Don Buchwald responded to TMZ: "To the extent her testimony is needed, she will of course comply with whatever the rules are in Florida courts."

At least that skank filled her lifelong ambition to be a whore. She's going to sue everyone she can to make up for the revenue she lost when the good ole Gov got busted.

Well just remember, she likes to be "paid" for her services. Beyond all of this, is she being checked for STDs?

If TMZ had the whole story....you would understand    

This is a lesson for all young girls. Watch what you do, you might want to be respectable at sometime in your life. Watch what you do on u tube and myspace and if you are drinking keep your clothes on and tongue in your mouth. Video is forever!

Another stupid story by TMZ's uneducated chimpanzees    

I hate to say it, but whatever her name is (Ashley Dupre is her prostitue name) is a hooker. She ruined her reputation long ago, when she decided to do a GGW film where she stripped & paraded around naked, then later decided to have sex for money. She has not been damaged by GGW's actions; far from it. GGW (as much as I hate Joe Francis) has the right to withdraw their offer if they already legally own footage of her. She's got no leg to stand on (she just wants money to go away), and it's obvious that GGW is planning to intimidate her into dropping her suit by dragging her facefirst through the mud on the stand. There's no one to root for in this thing; they're all a bunch of losers...

Truer words were never spoken. She spreads her legs and/or gets down on her knees for a living; she ruined her own reputation. The only way she'd get any money would be if the other party was afraid of publicity, or wanted it to go away; Joe Francis is a bottomfeeder & wants all the publicity he can get, so he'll draw this thing out as long as possible & hope it gets picked up by all the media outlets. If I were her lawyer, I wouldn't waste time on this case; there's no way to win any money here...

I don't feel sorry for her. This is what she wanted to do because apparently exploiting herself is the only thing she knows how to do. If she had a brain to begin with she wouldn't have been involved in the first place. Good riddens to BAD RUBBISH in my opinion!

Pot calling the Kettle black, both Francis and Dupri are from the same gutter.

Seriously, they are from the same gutter! Joe should just marry her. He could teach her to read legal contracts before signing them, although he may not have the patience. The pictures here make them look alike somehow. What a trip!
