A whole lotta drama went down here in Hollywood, CA last night in the wee hours of the morning at Guys & Dolls nightclub. An altercation that began inside the club, where allegedly Joe Francis (of Girls Gone Wild fame) physically assaulted Playboy model and Brody Jenner girlfriend Jayde Nicole, and then spilled out into the street where Brody Jenner was apparently tasered and Francis escaped. TMZ was there to chronicle all the drama from Jayde and Brody themselves. Here are a few screencaps of instant video interviews with Jayde and Brody about what went down, a photo of Joe Francis (newly released from prison) fleeing the scene and the latest deets from TMZ about the whole matter:
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.
Lord, what a bunch of bullshizz. TMZ has video of Jayde explaining what happened and, at first, she claimed she merely “bumped” into Francis (to get him to stop harassing her friend) and then he started wailing on her … then her story became she threw a drink on him. Whatever happened, it’s clear that some sort of physicality went down between the two. I imagine that this sort of drama is not the kind that an ex-con would like to attract … I suspect Francis fled the scene so as not to be arrested on the spot. I wouldn’t be surprised if the cops paid him a visit later on today.
After all of this went down, Brody Jenner updated his official Twitter profile with the following tweets:
Joe Francis needs to be in jail!!!
How can you call yourself a man when you beat up a girl?? Joe Francis is a piece of shit
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?
Depending on whether or not anyone presses charges, we may be hearing more about this incident soon. And I believe we still need to find out who tasered Brody outside the club. Meh, just a typical Thursday night in Hollywood. Sounds fun, right?
