Joe Francis sex tape featuring girlfriend Abbey Wilson being shopped around after theft

joe-francis-abbey-wilson-sex-tape.jpg "Girls Gone Wild" mogul Joe Francis has apparently gone a little wild himself on camera.

TMZ reports that Francis made a hardcore sex tape with his girlfriend, Abbey Wilson, and that someone stole the video from her. Now the sex tape is reportedly being shopped around and Francis is threatening legal action.

TMZ says the tape contains footage from several different sexual encounters the two had. Francis says the recording was taken off Abbey's iPad, which was stolen from her bag at the Los Angeles airport.

"It is not only unfortunate, but it is a crime," says Francis' lawyer, David Houston. "As such, this office will take all necessary steps to determine who in fact has done this and who is attempting to distribute this video."

Houston adds that authorities have been contacted and that Francis and his associates "will see that [the thief is] prosecuted to the fullest extent of both the criminal and civil laws."

Now, the girls who participate in "Girls Gone Wild" didn't have their footage stolen from their private electronic devices, but still -- this is a little funny.

And actually, maybe Francis should just release the sex tape himself, since he may end up needing the money.
