After a nasty mess over Joe Francis' gambling debts and his threats to expose Steve Wynn's "high-end deception," Joe has lost the defamation lawsuit filed by the Vegas mogul.
Joe was sued after he promised to reveal the ways Steve deceived all of his high rollers. But Joe had also sued Steve for "ruining his reputation" over the gambling debt "exaggerations."
So even though the Girls Gone Wild kind just lost 7.5 million in this lawsuit, his lawyer says that's nothing compared to what Steve's about to lose:
We will appeal this order. Joe was not allowed to defend himself. Even if this order stands, it will only be a small offset from the 10's of millions of dollars that we are requesting from Steve Wynn in another lawsuit — in a less Wynn-friendly courtroom.
Joe is just all about the lawsuits, isn't he??
There's this one… there's the one with Madonna…
