Joe Francis' bad week gets worse

Joe20francis We reported here yesterday about a new federal lawsuit filed in Panama City against Girls Gone Wild honcho Joe Francis (left).

Turns out, Francis' Tuesday isn't shaping up to be much better than his Monday was.

The Wynn Casino in Las Vegas filed a lawsuit, claiming the 35-year-old Francis owes $2 million in unpaid gambling debts dating to February 2007.

According to the lawsuit, the casino extended $2.5 million in credit to Francis on Feb. 16, 2007, and gave him another $300,000 two days later. Francis paid back $800,000 later that month, but the rest is still unpaid, the lawsuit alleges.

A spokesman for Mantra Entertainment, the company that runs GGW, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that Francis has "fully lived up to" his repayment obligations.
