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.

Joe Francis looks like a Ninja Turtle.

His first reaction is to pull hair????? LMAO! Even if it was a guy that is so pathetic to pull hair in a fight. I hope he goes back to jail and gets it up the butt again. What ever happened to Joe Francis pictures of him being tied up and getting it on with a guy?

BWHAHAHAHAH Joe does look like a ninja turtle.

What a surprise..Joe and the owner are friends so he could easily earase the part where he hit her. Obviously, the owner is so close to Joe that they tasered Brody when they werent even fighting in the club so why did they feel the need to defend joe outside of it? Because they ARE FRIENDS WITH JOE. I would never believe anything Joe says. He tried to bribe his way out of jail to get special treatment. His a coward.

I believe Joe on this one. He will continue to be a target for malicious prosecution and lawsuits. Truth normally prevails. Ask Jeremy Priven who just won a baseless lawsuit.

Batter up..... so,according to you,it's ok to put your hands on another as long as it's 'only' hair pulling? Not only is THAT wrong, the loser did it as a'reaction'? What a girlish reaction! at least you said he's a perv & a joke. The club might do better by 'staying out of it',seems they have another worry at the moment. Their defense re:ChrisBrown is bogus, even the 'entertainers' are supposed to be 21.Hmm, maybe they're taking Joe shmoe's side because he regularly trolls there for his UNDERAGE,masked as legal age, GGW girls??.....just sayin.

*******************************************************************
13. 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.

To Raven - The point I was trying to get across is that it wasn't as violent as Brody and Jayde made it seem. Yeah, you're right, it's not OK to touch a woman. But we need to listen to both sides of the story before judging anyone. And Joe is a perv and a joke.
