Girls Gone Wild co files for bankruptcy over debts

Friday 1 Mar 2013 11:53 a.m.

The company behind the Girls Gone Wild video empire has filed for bankruptcy in a move it says is an effort to restructure its legal affairs after several disputed court judgments.

GGW Brands LLC and several subsidiaries filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Wednesday in Los Angeles, listing more than US$16 million in disputed claims.

The largest claim is US$10.3 million that Wynn Resorts Limited is seeking from the company for judgments entered against Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis over a gambling debt and statements he has made about the casino and its founder, Steve Wynn.

Francis no longer owns the company, which has made a fortune selling videos and magazines of young women flashing their breasts.

Girls Gone Wild issued a statement that it is financially strong but needed to "re-structure its frivolous and burdensome legal affairs."
