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."

I thought the video surveillance had proven she is LYING and that is why the police did not pursue her claim. Also, I've seen this skank's picture which was posted after the alleged smackdown and there was no black eye or visible injuries whatsover. Another frivolous lawsuit wasting more time and money. Is that all these losers have to do besides star on crappy reality shows about nothing but how spoiled clueless people live? It is time to impose penalties on frivolous lawsuit filings - really - this is out of control. She initiated this whole thing herself for attention with the drink throwing and now she is claiming "humiliation" -- please, get me a barf bag and quick. These people continue to sicken me.

The best past is when this first happened she was saying he pulled her hair, threw her down and commenced to kick, punch and just generally beat the sh!t out of her. Now, after the video showed she was lying, she's trying to sue him for what he said he did in the first place, pull her hair, nothing more. I believe she got off very lucky for what she did. Pouring a drink on somebody in the middle of a club, unprovoked = deserving of an ass whooping.

And it's not a matter of hitting or beating up on girls. When somebody(anybody) does that to you unexpectedly your instant reflexes kick in. It's a body's natural reaction/response to being assaulted. Bottom line is nothing would have ever happened to this tramp if she had simply left people alone instead of trying to make a scene to get some attention. Well bitch, you got it.....

And who the f*ck names their kid "Brody"?!!? I mean, Damn.....

I hope she wins! People like this Joe (ninja turtle looking fool) really need pay the consquences just like any man who beats a girl. He is not above any law and I hope he has to pay her 1 million dollars in full!

Jayde is ridiculous. This only proves what a low life she is and all he did was pull her hair. Joe should buy her some good extensions and tell her to quit whining and get a real job. What a pathetic person she is. Joe should counter sue, after all she threw the first punch, but even Joe Francis has more class than her!

Joe Francis's statement is actually funny as hell.
How does he know what she has inked on her vagina unless he's been in there? Hilarious.
The man has a good sense of humor which needs to be appreciated more.
