Steve Wynn victorious in the long running battle in his “fight” with Girls Gone creator Joe Francis.
The long running saga between Joe Francis and Steve Wynn began when Francis defaulted on payment of nearly $2 million in casino markers.
Most people know the drill – including Quincy Jones – who testified.
The legendary music maker Jones had said,“If you lose the money, you pay the money”
Francis didn’t pay the money and he then claimed that Steve Wynn, the longtime well respected casino mogul had threatened his life.
He said that Quincy Jones received an email from Wynn and that Francis, who is Jones’ next door neighbor, saw the email.
Jones originally did not want to testify but later changed his mind and testified last week.
Wynn has vehemently denied threatening Francis and said, “It would be a singularly self-destructive, incredibly, incredibly stupid”.
Steve Wynn was recently awarded $7.5 million in a defamation lawsuit that stemmed from comments Francis made to a TMZ producer and to comments he had made on Good Morning America.
Billionaire Steve Wynn can now add at least $20 million to that and possibly even up to $60 million! because there is very clear and convincing evidence that Joe Francis knew his allegations that he made against Wynn were false and that he slandered Wynn.
Francis, the founder of Girls Gone Wild fame who served jail time for tax evasion is still estimated to have a fortune worth $150 million and he stands to lose a substantial part of that fortune based on the recent ruling.
All of which could have been easily avoided if she simply paid of his marker.
As for Steve Wynn, his reputation remains intact.
