Steve Wynn Lawsuit:

I Never Threatened

Joe Francis

6/1/2010 9:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Casino mogul Steve Wynn just slapped Joe Francis with a lawsuit for slander -- claiming Francis lied about Wynn making death threats.

It's all over a story TMZ broke in April -- in which Francis was quoted as saying, "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."  Francis made the alleged statement during a court hearing over a gambling debt he owes the Wynn Las Vegas.

Well according to court documents, Wynn says the "Girls Gone Wild" honcho is full of it. In the lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Wynn denies all of the above -- stating he "never threatened to kill Francis, nor physically threatened him in any manner."

Wynn is suing for unspecified damages.

The only reason they look like father and son is becuase they both "BOUGHT" their "NEW NOSES" at the Jewish Schnozz Repair Clinic in Beverly Hills on Bedford Dr.
Seriously. There's tons of those in Beverly Hills. Just look at all the the tiny nosed, grouper-mouthed, Fish-Women walking up and down Rodeo who look absolutley nothing like their own children (cause their kids haven't got the new BEAK yet for their bat/bar mitzvah's).

Some of you people have it a little twisted don't you? I can understand your disgust towards Joe, but he didn't really need your permission to make millions off of your daughters/sisters/girlfriends...they were willing drunk & wild participants giving it away for free. You taught them well and their temporary pimp Joe profited big time and you helped him exploit these girls. Perhaps you should have spent more time raising them to be young respectable women instead of future bunny ranch rabbits.

Oh come on now, Joe Francis made millions off of your young american WILLING daughters, sisters, girlfriends, throwbacks - most of whom were either drunk, high or just plain stupid. Of course the guy is a lowlife, but perhaps your main issuse she be with your willing daughters, sisters, girlfriends and why they would allow this man to make them crawl so low for his benefit!!
Don't hate the player, hate the damn game!

Mr. Wynn,
If you did indeed threaten to hit Joe Francis over the back of the head and bury him in the desert, please do us all a favor and make good on your threat. The man is a turd with legs and the world would be better off. Thank you.



Sincerely,
Everyone
