Joe Francis Called 'Rapist' and 'Douche' in Lawsuit

9/7/2010 9:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Girls Gone Wild" honcho Joe Francis has been called many things -- but now the mudslinging has been taken to another level in a new lawsuit ... in which Joe is described as a "rapist, child molester" and even the "Douche of the Decade."

090610_joe_francis_ex_2
The legal docs were just filed by 4th Street Media -- the publisher behind a new tell-all book written by former GGW employee Ryan Simkin. 4th Street has filed the papers in an effort to stop Francis from blocking the sale of the book titled, "FLASH! Bars, Boobs, and Busted: 5 Years on the Road with Girls Gone Wild."

The book contains some seriously graphic stories about Francis and his friends engaging in drug use and other scandalous activities.

But the legal docs -- filed today in L.A. County Superior Court -- may be as explosive as the book ...  because the publishers use the following words to describe Francis: 

"Convicted felon; child molester; jail-baiting pervert; pimp; sick bastard; sleaze-peddler; tax cheat; rapist; sleazehole; the epitome of a true misogynist, coked-out amoral direct marketer; violent thug; juvenile smut-peddler; sexual predator; one of the 50 most loathsome people in America; and the Douche of the Decade."

Calls to Francis have not been returned.

Forgot one last label for him......he is best friends with the Kardashian family. They use his home in Mexico all the time and Kris Jenner thinks he's just wonderful.

He is a rapist. He raped a very good friend of mine and she was threatened if she went to the police. Of course we have to say "allegedly" for legal reasons, but he is known to drug girls who say no to him and he doesn't give a f**k about any of these girls. I'm surprised no father or relative hasn't exacted revenge on him. He is arrogant and thinks he's above the law. His day is coming....

If you're gonna live your life like a pee-wee, don't be shocked when people mention it.

Quite a few of the girls in Joe's videos have been shown to be under 18. That makes him a child pornographer. He should be doing serious time. I find it very interesting that Mamma Kardashian and Joe are such good friends. She's basically a pimp for her three older daughters and now has her under-aged daughters doing "modeling." Can the next generation of Kardashian sex tapes be far behind? I wonder if Bruce ever gets embarrassed at what he has become? From Olympic gold winner to purse holder for a pimp.

Let's see if "Friends" of Francis still vacation for free at his pad down in Cabo. Sure wouldn't look good and everyone knows what Francis is about and how he got there.

oh yeah that's right, because he's a man with money and happend to work in a feminist-hated industry, he's being sued...

oh and i forgot... he's CLEARLY guilty because of the above facts.

sure, judging by this guy's line of work i don't doubt he's probably a douche-bag, but the book is slander, and all it takes is one person you piss off to write **** that may OR may not be true.

but... it's on TMZ so it *must* be legitimate

I love how people can call this joe guy all these names but all these sluts are the ones doing this for a free tshirt or just to be on tv. These girls are doing all these nasty things on their own and are not forced. They just want attention either be put on tv, money, a free tshirt. Yeah these girls are such easy girls. I dont agree with what Joe does but if there are dumb girls willing to sleep with him and his friends, take off their shirts and flash, and what other nasty thing they want then we shouldnt be calling this joe guy so many nasty things. Some is true but cant blame a guy for sluts throwing theirselves at him willing to do ANYTHING for a free tshirt hahahah. Im sure these girls parents are proud as one guy says. Its not fair to blame this sleezy guy joe but blame them sluts too.

Do they expect to have credibility in the court by wording their legal do***ents in this manner?
