Joe Francis:

Steve Wynn

Threatened to Kill Me

4/12/2010 5:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Francis just told a judge he fears for his life -- and the man allegedly making the threats is none other than hotel tycoon Steve Wynn.

During a hearing over a gambling debt Francis owes the Wynn Las Vegas, Francis told the judge, "Mr. Wynn has threatened to kill me ... He said he would hit me in the back of the head with a shovel and bury me in the desert."

The judge asked Francis if he had gotten a restraining order -- Francis said he hadn't, but he was in the process.

Francis lost a $2,000,000 judgment to Wynn last year over a casino debt.  Francis hasn't paid the judgment (he's currently appealing) and was hauled into court today to reveal where he keeps his assets.

A rep for Wynn did not return a call for comment.

Lots of fathers would appreciate Steve Wynn collecting Joe's money and then making an example out of him for being a slow paying moron. The desert is lovely this time of year and Joe should dig his own hole. Wish Steve could see the look on Joe's face!

You people have not figured out why Vegas is called sin city yet? It is absolutely amazing to see so many young rich people fall into the gambling habit as soon as they make two cents.



Joe and all you other can money, quit the Vegas BS. This place is a "burial ground" (no pun intended)for everybody - from politician to musicians to sports stars.



If i had half the **** some of these guys have those places WOULD NEVER see me!!

6. You mean "Lots of fathers would appreciate Wynn burying Francis in the desert", after all it was their drunk skanky daughters out there showing their goods, sleazing it up, making Joe rich. Kinda late for that right? Cause daddy's friends have seen his daughter's goods and will continue to see them!! Don't hate Joe, he simply made millions off of America's little skanks, whores in training! Hell, might as well give these girls stripper poles the minute they learn how to walk!

This is the best news I've heard all day and I've got a newfound respect for Mr. Wynn's business practices! Pay up Mr. Francis, now.

People seem to be angry at Joe because he taped these girls showing their boobies. These girls weren't forced to do those things. They did it because they are dirty little sluts. Now that being said, Joe, you don't want to mess with Vegas. Nothing but thugs and criminals run those casinos.Good luck, and don't go near the desert.
