Throughout his years as the founder and creator of entertainment brand Girls Gone Wild, Francis has been part of the Y2K party scene.

However, the first episode of the Rich & Shameless anthology series, titled Girls Gone Wild Exposed, aims to show that the adult entertainment machine was allegedly exploiting young girls like Jannel.

In 2006, Jannel was a self-proclaimed 18-year-old “party girl” in Chicago’s nightlife scene, according to The New York Post’s preview of the premiere episode.

In the episode, Jannel comes forward to accuse Francis of brutally raping her in the back of his tour bus.

Jannel claims that after meeting Francis on the dance floor of a Chicago nightclub, he fed her booze “like it was water” while constantly complimenting her.

When Francis invited Jannel on his tour bus, she said she thought the worst she would be asked to do would be to flash her boobs on camera for the entertainment brand.

Jannel claims that once she got on the bus, she was forced to touch herself with objects Francis kept by her bed before forcing himself on her.

“He kept trying to kiss me and say, ‘It’s gonna be okay, it’s gonna be okay,'” Jannel claims in the episode.

“And I was like, ‘Let go of me, let go of me.’

“He basically forced himself on me, and it hurt because I wasn’t ‘excited’, so it really hurt.”

Jannel says she weighed just 100 pounds at the time of the alleged attack, explaining that she was unable to fight off the alleged assault.

“I didn’t consent that night, and he totally raped me. And then he dumped me like I was trash.”

DIRECTOR’S OPINION

Director Katinka Blackford Newman told the Post that she wanted the episode to show that “behind the fun, wet t-shirt competitions and fake feminist liberation centered around flashing your boobs on camera, lives were ruined”.

“Young women like Jannel thought Joe Francis was okay because he was hanging out with celebrities.

“No one would believe that someone who rubs shoulders with the Kardashians, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston could be a violent abuser and criminal.”

The documentary alleges Francis, now 49, had a dark history due to claims he was sent to boarding school as a child for being ‘unmanageable’.

The episode also claims that in 2003, Francis was arrested on child pornography charges for filming underage girls having sex.

PAST DRAMA

Francis made headlines last year when he claimed his seven-year-old twin daughters were missing.

Although he claimed the girls’ mother disappeared with them in Mexico, his ex-girlfriend Abbey Wilson insisted she had full temporary custody of their children – and did not kidnap anyone.

Last summer, Wilson accused Francis of meth and cocaine abuse, adding to his previous domestic violence allegations.

In August 2020, he was accused of grabbing her by the neck and spitting in her face to give her Covid.

Francis was charged with domestic violence and intentional injury after the incident at his Punta Mita home, according to Mexican court documents obtained by The Sun.

He reportedly spent 73 days in a Mexican prison.

After Francis was arrested, his Mexican home known as Casa Aramara caught fire and suffered extensive damage.

The documentary reports that Wilson is now raising their daughters “underground” and without financial support from Francis.

He also claims that Francis is currently living on the run in Mexico to escape assault and bogus charges of imprisonment.
