Brody Jenner's GF Sues Joe Francis For $1 Mil

9/24/2009 6:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jayde Nicole, Brody Jenner's girlfriend, has just filed a lawsuit against Joe Francis, alleging assault and battery.

Jayde & Joe

Nicole claims in her suit, "In an intoxicated and uncontrollable rage, defendant Francis, who weighs over 200 lbs, physically attacked plaintiff Nicole, approximately 115 lbs, by pulling on her hair from behind to gain maximum control over her person and then violently shoving and/or throwing her to the ground of the nightclub like a rag-doll."

Nicole claims she suffered all sorts of injuries from the fight, including a "black-eye, swollen face, bruised ribs, sore and bruised abdomen region, bruised arms and legs, ripped-out hair, and utter emotional distress and humiliation."

She's suing for $1 million plus punitive damages.

UPDATE: TMZ has just received the following statement from Joe Francis:

"Jayde Nicole is an absolute and total liar. Her prior statements about the incident are not only slanderous and defamatory, but actionable.

It is so interesting that Jayde Nicole would hire the same attorney (Ron Richards) who represented the double murderer who kidnapped me from my Bel Air mansion at gunpoint in 2004, for which he is now serving 11 years.

The only thing that Jayde Nicole is famous for is having a tattoo of the word "respect" above her vagina ... for which we all know she has none of.
"

Francis added, "Jayde have you seen a picture of me lately? I'm 175 lbs. soaking wet."

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't surveillance video show that she threw a drink at him, glass and all, and he just pulled her hair?

Nasty little bitch. I ain't no fan of Joe, but I hope the judge throws this law suit out and Joe turns around and slams her for every dime she has. While he's at it, sue Brody for attacking him for no reason.

I see Joe Francis in the clubs all the time. He is crazy but that's because he loves to have fun, he does not hit girls, I have never seen him hurt anybody, instead, he always buys drinks and makes sure everyone is having fun except douches and bitches like Brody and Jayde.

Below is the charges the government filed (about 1 year ago). Francis yesterday agreed to pay a few hundred thousand dollars(200K +). Anyone who doesn't believe Francis won, can't read. btw- I'm no fan of Joe's.


"Joe Francis, the "Girls Gone Wild" founder, was indicted today on federal tax evasion charges for illegally deducting more than $20 million in phony business expenses from his 2002 and 2003 corporate tax returns.

According to a two count indictment filed in U.S. District Court in Reno, Nevada, Francis, 34, sought to conceal income through the use of offshore companies and nominees. At one point, he transferred $15 million from one offshore bank account to a California brokerage account in the name of a Cayman Islands corporation he controlled. If convicted of the federal charges, he faces a maximum of 10 years in prison and fines of up to $500,000"
