Joe Francis Sues

Where the HELL

"Girls Gone Wild" honcho Joe Francis dropped almost a quarter mil on a helicopter 10 years ago ... but he still has NO IDEA where it is -- and now, he's suing the guy who's allegedly behind the mystery.

According to papers filed at the LA Superior Court, obtained by TMZ, the GGW guru went halfsies on a Bell 206 Long Ranger helicopter in 2002 -- with some rich dude named Mohamed Hadid.

According to the docs, Joe paid $226,000 for his share -- but claims he never signed any paperwork or asked any questions, trusting Mohamed with all the small details ... like location, full price, and working condition. Joe claims he doesn't even know who currently holds the title to the chopper.
 
But now, Joe wants his $226K back -- claiming he was prevented from using the flying machine ... and worse, believes it was secretly sold behind his back. Joe says he has no clue where the helicopter currently is.

Joe is also seeking unspecified damages. Attempts to reach Hadid were unsuccessful.

who cares    

That copter cost around a million dollars for base model and up to 1.5 million for a newer model so saying he went in on half is streaching it.

Oh boo hoo. It's not as if he worked hard to get the $226,000. He gets money for doing nothing but duping drunk girls into taking off their clothes. No sympathy here.

If you're stupid enough to give someone almost a quarter of a million dollars without any paperwork, and then wait ten years to try to get it back....you don't deserve it. Chalk it up to a learning experience and stop whining.

This tells us the higher the bank account, simultaneously the lower IQs for some.


Gosh darn, it would take me 10 years as well to check on my trustworthy buddy Mo'. $226K is just paperboy tip money anyway compliments of boobs and bimbos.
