Wynn --

I've Got Joe

By His Big Chips

7/1/2008 10:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


0310_francis_$-1Joe Francis has the Feds after his millions, but he's got a much scarier guy breathing down his neck -- Steve Wynn.

Steve's resort just sued the pimpresario for $2 mil, claiming that Joe skipped out on a marker he was given back in February 2007. Wynn says that he spotted Joe a total of $2.8 mil, but has only seen $800k of that.

Ronn Torossian, spokesperson for Mantra Entertainment, Joe's production company, says, "As far as Mr. Francis is concerned, all of his balances with the Wynn Hotel have been fully lived up to, per prior agreements."

I dont know why any celebrity would gamble at the Wynn, everytime a celebrity owes Steve Wynn money he leaks it out to press. Steve do you have any more artwork that your trying to get a settlement on? I'm sure Sir Charles or Joe Francis would gladly kick holes in it rather then you doing it yourself.

CELEBS HAS NO COMMON SENSE OR DO THEY PAY IN FULL CASH    

Joe is better off paying Winn back ....if you borrow money , then you take
responsiblity and pay back ....

Winn will beat Joe's ass . Joe thinks jail time was bad , wait till Winn is
after him .

Save your ass Joe and pay back .

Not only that Joe , if you 're suppose rich ,why borrow at all .

if you can't afford it , why do something so stupid .

You sure are making alot of mistakes in your life .

Not using Common Sense .... Know deal with it .

It's better to save money than throwing it away .

Soon Joe you will end up lossing everything you've ..

What for nothing ???????????

If only people would use there Common sense .

anybody in the IN crowd knows that joe makes good deals, therefore i am sure somebody at wynn made a deal with joe saying he doesnt have to pay if he brings some of his hoe's to a wynn club or something, its wynn the crocked gangster that is probably double dipping on the innocent francis.
look if jennifer aniston trusts staying at joe's home in the nude then i believe joe over a italian gangster running a casino, havent u retart's seen the movie casino?????????????????????

Why is it that you only here from The Wynn Casinos when a celebrity owes them money? Steve Wynn might have the most lavish Hotel and Casino on the Strip, but without the celebrity buzz around it will end up hurting his bottomline more then embarrassing these people in the press. STARS TAKE NOTICE!
