Joe Francis: I Did Not Punch Brody's Girlfriend

8/28/2009 6:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joe FrancisJoe Francis says he did not punch or kick Brody Jenner's girlfriend last night at an L.A. club -- and he says security footage of the incident backs up his story.

Joe tells us he was hanging out with the General Manager for Guys and Dolls when Jayde Nicole pushed him from behind and poured a drink on him.

Joe says he turned around and pulled her hair in reaction to the attack. Francis says this is the only contact he made with Jayde or Brody the entire time ... and security footage from inside the club shows exactly this.

Joe says Brody had punched him and ripped his shirt off. He says the club's GM then escorted him outside to the parking lot and he lit up a cigarette.

Joe says the next thing he knew, he was on the ground. He was later told Brody had blindsided him.

That's when Francis says the club's security tasered Brody.

Other sources tell us the owner of Guys and Dolls, Michael Sutton, has also reviewed the security footage -- and it backs Joe's story.

Oh wow, I thought for sure Francis had done it, but if the security tape shows otherwise, then Jenner is open to trouble.

And Jayde Nicole (what a ho name!) started the whole thing by throwing a drink on Francis just because he was making a pass at some girl. Also, WTF is up with her lips? Is she another victim of too much lip filler?

I can't believe I'm sticking up for Francis, but at this point I'm taking his side.

Grown men with money acting like retards. I wonder if Jon Gosselin was there last night also. It would complete the trifecta.

THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME HE'S PHYSICALLY ABUSED A WOMAN IN PUBLIC:

Apparently this guy thinks it's so OK, that he does it in public. Imagine what he does in private.

If this is true, then all of you making nasty comments about Joe need to eat your own words. Yeah, Joe is a perverted joke, but if all he did was pull her hair, then this is a non story. The GM of the club will surely back Joe if the tape proves he did nothing but retaliate because he was assaulted.
