Joe Francis beats Playboy Playmate, gets punched by Brody Jenner

Once upon a time, Joe Francis was a slimy creep whose worst crimes against women consisted of making millions by getting college girls drunk enough to coerce them into removing their clothes and doing things they wouldn’t normally do. Oh, and if the rumors are to be believed, he’s probably the one who gave Paris Hilton herpes. But now, you can add woman-beater to that list, after an epic fight at a club in LA last night. Joe punched and kicked former Playboy Playmate Jayde Nicole after she did what every woman in America would love to do – threw a drink in his face. (Personally, I would have kicked him in the balls, but that’s just me.) Because every man knows that an appropriate response to having some liquid thrown in your face is to punch, kick, and throw someone to the ground, right?

Brody Jenner was in an epic fight outside of Guys and Dolls this morning, with Girls Gone Wild honcho Joe Francis.

Jenner just spoke with us by phone. According to Jenner, he and his girlfriend, Jayde Nicole, were at the club celebrating his birthday, when Jayde saw Francis hitting on an ex-girlfriend of his (Francis’), Jenner says “unrelentingly.” Jayde felt he was harassing the woman — whom Jayde and Brody know — and she threw a drink on Francis.

Jenner says Francis then pulled Jayde’s hair, punched her in the face and threw her to the ground and began kicking her. Security broke it up and Francis got dragged away — Brody followed.

Jenner says he started yelling at Francis and both men were ejected from the club.

Outside the club, Jenner says he tried to get back in to see Jayde but security wouldn’t let him. Jenner then saw Joe, punched him in the face, and then someone tased him and he fell to the ground.

Francis left the scene. The cops — who say a call came in at 2:46 AM for battery — came but no one was arrested.

Jayde tells TMZ she will press charges against Francis.

Jayde has a black and blue cheek, her face is swollen, she has a bruised left rib and her lower abdomen is sore. Some of her hair also got pulled out.

UPDATE: Brody put the following message on his Twitter: “Joe Francis beat up my lady this morning for no reason! Pulled her to the ground, punched & kicked her..what does that say about him. How can you call yourself a man when you beat up a girl?? Joe Francis is a piece of sh*t. Joe Francis needs to be in jail!!!”


Is anyone really surprised that Joe Francis would physically assault a woman? After all, he has built an empire out of treating them like objects, so this is the next logical step. And I never thought I would say this about Brody Jenner, but he gets big points for stepping in. I wonder who exactly tased Jenner- perhaps one of Joe’s security thugs?

    I wish for a bad-ass girl gang to follow this asswipe and make his life miserable in various creative ways for the rest of his pathetic days. Every time a GGW commercial comes on TV while I’m trying to have a pleasant night watching Comedy Central, I seethe. As soon as that steel drum music starts up, steam comes out of my ears.

  2. Carolyn J. says:

    Isn’t he a little/a lot OLD for that sort of behaviour?

  3. Miss says:

    Fingers crossed that after the backlash there was when Chris Brown didn’t get jail time for his assault on Rihanna, Joe Francis is made an example of. What a douche bag. I hope his gets his time in jail and then some. He makes me sick.

  4. kelbear says:

    She may have thrown a drink in his face but no way did she deserve all that. And i dont even like her after seeing her on The Hills.

  5. Firestarter says:

    They are all disgusting human beings, but men should never touch women in that manner, ever!

  6. elisabetta says:

    Joe Francis sucks. He is a plague on society.

  7. Praise St. Angie! says:

    after hearing about his various sexual assaults on the girls in his vids, and the behavior he exhibited when that woman interviewed him, I’m not at all surprised to read this.

    someone needs to beat the shit out of him.,0,5620406.story

  8. Cinderella says:

    Since Joe was in the slammer not long ago, is he still on probation? Send his wimpy ass back to jail for a long time. I also hope Jayde is able clean him out in civil court.

  9. jay says:

    Isn’t Francis on probation from all his other legal problems? This would put him back where he belongs.

    Other inmates don’t look to kindly on women beaters, Joey-boy. Better make nice and quick.

    What an asshole.

    eta: Ah, I see Cinderella and I had a singular vision. Hope it pans out.

  10. Ron says:

    What a complete ass. Disgusting. He has no respect for women.

  11. Mairead says:

    Oh my good god, this means that Brody Jenner and his gf are now my heroes. I never thought I’d see the day. It’s not a taser Jenner should be getting, but a bleedin’ medal.

    Send that scumbag Francis back to prison, himself and his mutant-Cheshire-cat maw. 👿

  12. Neelyo says:

    Joe Francis sucks but so does Brody Jenner. Douchebag fight!

  13. wow says:

    I am female, but I am so sick and tired of women who think they can throw liquids on people, especially when they should have just stayed out of other people’s business from the get go. That issue didn’t even involve Jayde. It was between her friend and that douche Joe Francis. Her friend is old enough to handle her own business.

    I’m not excusing the other dude’s behaviour, but I will stand by my belief that every action has a reaction. One can never just assume the other party is going to respond in a rational way.

    I don’t feel much compassion for either party or Captain-Save-A-ho-Brody. Jayde was sheity on The Hills as well. I guess she met her match in a dude who wasn’t going to take any of her Sh*t in Joe Francis.

  14. Lem says:

    aren’t they all just a little OLD to still be hanging at da club until 3 a.m. on a week night?
    Didn’t either Brody’s last girlfriend also get hit by some dude?
    How does security beat you to your GF’s defense?
    These people are still on T.V.? really?
    Send the pedophile back to jail.
    Send Jenner too for again fighting in public.
    Tell the gf she can have new extensions put back in.
    Send Paris to the clinic for a mainentence shot.
    Anyone else?

  15. the original kate says:

    joe francis is so creepy. his parents must be mortified and probably tell everyone that their little joey is a computer repair guy living in bali.

  16. RubyKaur says:

    JF should of never hit her, but on the other hand, she should of minded her own business and not thrown a drink on him. How would any of us react if someone threw a drink on us? Shake their hand and give them a hug? NOT!

  17. heck says:

    I don’t get how Francis has SO MANY Hollywood connections? E! Online just reported Francis is getting sued for tax evasion. So, Francis is having his Hollywood buds testify on his behalf– which includes: Jack Nicholson, Jennifer Aniston, Vince Vaughn, and Orlando Bloom. WHY would these celebs be associated in ANY WAY with this creepy pornographer?

  18. fizXgirl314 says:

    I hope this guy gets a long long stint in jail…

  19. Beck says:

    Joe Francis is a poor excuse for a human being. I think he really hates women. Plus, he shouldn’t have gotten out of jail in the first place.

    Uh, RubyKaur? You start off saying that JF shouldn’t have hit her but then you justify his actions because he had a drink poured on him. He didn’t just hit her. He also kicked her while she was on the ground.

    I hope the girl does press charges. I also hope someone gives him a good beating or two.

  20. KateNonymous says:

    So, three jerks walk into a bar…

  21. eml says:

    I don’t believe that what Joe did was right or justified but I have little sympathy for Jayde. Not because she got involved in a situation that wasn’t any of her business but because she perpetuates the mentality that guys like Joe have about women by stripping down to nothing and posing for pictures so that guys can oogle her and not learn that women are more than objects and deserve respect. Its a shame that she got injured, and I do hope that she presses charges, but she is part of the system that encourages men to disrespect women in this way and she should at least take responsibility (privately) for that.

  22. Paulette says:

    Right on, Beck. Jayde made Joe damp. Joe punched her and kicked her while she was down. He totally overreacted and some small provocation doesn’t justify all of that violence.

    Jayde did the right thing in sticking up for her friend. Sometimes it does take another person to get a guy to stop hassling you.

  23. posterboy says:

    NEVER hit a woman! Good for Jenner for punching him, I just wish he’d gotten the chance to give the guy the thorough ass-beating he deserves.

  24. fizXgirl314 says:

    I can’t help but notice there is a girl’s arm cropped out of that picture… that girl should serve time in jail also for allowing this douche to think that he qualifies to be in the dating pool with other humans… :/

  25. Snoopchew says:

    Fungus on the maggots that live in the pond scum that floats to the surface of a gigantic cess pool.

  26. mike says:

    You people are tripping. Beating up someone, guy or gal, for something trivial like getting a drink thrown at the face is an entirely disproportionate response. Really, so the next time someone pulls a douchey move like throwing a drink at me, I should pull out my knife and gank him, right? I mean, he deserved it. Shouldn’t have thrown a drink at me. Got it coming…

    Where are your perspectives?

    Btw, the “she started it” is the favorite excuse of women beaters. You know, just cuz a little 110 lb woman got mad at you and scratched or threw a punch at you, it’s alright to show that b*tch who’s the boss with punches generated by your (typically) 160+ lb body. She gets broken face and broken ribs; you get, if she got lucky, some torn skin. Fair play, right?

  27. fizXgirl314 says:

    it seems as though it’s men who have a really good perspective on this beating women situation… positive points in your favor!

  28. Vee says:

    Joe is disgusting and I hope Jayde sues this pig for every cent he has, but I do give Joe points if he gave Paris herpes.

  29. JustMe says:

    FYI: Francis has sex in other Countries with 12 year old girls – he’s a pedophile, misogynist, and now, a beater.

    Slit his throat already.

    it seems as though it’s men who have a really good perspective on this beating women situation…

    Sad, isn’t it? All those little girls who cheer for Chris Brown…I weep for the future of females… 🙁
    (I know this is Joe Francis, not Chris Brown, but you see my point…)

  31. yae says:

    People actually stay in a room with Joe Francis? I would think that no one would wish to breathe the same air that he does.
    The dignified response once you note the presence of this lizard Joe Francis, is leave the club and not share his space.

  32. Ally says:

    I remember an episode of the Kardashians, where the Dina-esque mom raved about what a great friend of the family Francis was (they were mooching off him to spend time at one of his vacation homes). I wonder how this will affect the relationship. (Jenner is the Kardashians’ step-brother/step-son)

    Family support on the one hand versus free stuff from a woman-exploiter on the other. Hmm… I know it’s gonna be a tough call for momma Kardashian (that episode where she pressures Kim to take her top off for Playboy is one of the sickest things I’ve ever seen).

  33. karen says:

    Francis just told E! that he didn’t hit Nicole but “accidently” pulled her hair, that Jenner beat him up, and that Jenner has a tiny penis (I’m not kidding). Nicole said Francis forced himself on her girlfriend (tried to kiss her), which prompted her to throw the drink. Then, Franics beat on her. Sorry, I think Francis is lyin’ trash and I hope he goes back to jail.

  34. Hieronymus Grex says:

    But DJ AM was found dead 2 days ago while this douche-missile is still breathing comfortably.

  35. Magsy says:

    Someone needs to seriously beat his ass.
    Making all that money from teen titties, what a skeez.

  36. x says:

    Am i the only one that find Brody’s mangled piece of plastic surgery gone wrong the culpable one?

    C’mon. You’re not doing much with your life if you are only famous for getting naked and having upturned breasts with weird nipples like she does.

    They are all dirty pigs, that girl totally got what she had coming. You don’t nose yourself into a situation you can’t handle. She got what was coming to her. They annoy me. Next.

  37. Mairead says:

    Oh she’s culpable, but not deserving of such a complete overreaction.

    Besides, most of us here just really enjoy the idea of that wretched human being getting his comeuppance. Yes, it makes us horrible humans. but I like being a horrible human in this instance.

    Personally, i couldn’t give a crap that he films pathetic girls desperate for male attention and all too willing to blame the booze for lifting their tops. It’s all the rest of it that he’s (allegedly) done that makes my blood boil.

  38. BitterBetty says:

    @17 “heck”


    Wow, I guess he has some serious dirt on Jack Nicholson, Jennifer Aniston, Vince Vaughn, and Orlando Bloom!!

  39. john thames says:

    Let’s turn it around.

    Joe Francis throws a drink in her face; she reacts by hitting and kicking him. Does the same logic apply?
