Joe Francis Defends ‘Checking Out’ an 18-Year-Old Kylie Jenner

Published

on

Not backing down. Joe Francis recently came under fire after he shared a throwback photo of himself “checking out” a then 18-year-old Kylie Jenner — and the Girls Gone Wild founder doesn’t see the problem.

Happy Birthday @kyliejenner!! I’m so proud of you and all your success!!” Francis, 49, wrote via Instagram on Wednesday, August 10. “It seems like yesterday that we were celebrating your 18th birthday together [at the Casa Aramara resort in Punta de Mita, Mexico] ❤️🎉🍾💕.”

The photo, which was meant to celebrate Jenner, 25, turning another year older, seemingly featured the Georgia native glancing down at the Kylie Cosmetic founder’s backside while they partied with friends on a yacht in 2015.

Social media users quickly took to the comment section to question Francis’ picture choice, with one person writing, “You didn’t have a better picture — one where you weren’t checking her out?”

Francis, however, quickly defended his actions, claiming in a now-deleted reply that “all straight men are looking at beautiful women.”

He added, “That’s why I’m so successful. Are you saying you hate God for making us this way? No other straight man is different or girls gone wild wouldn’t have made billions of dollars.”

The filmmaker then claimed the commenter was “the creepy one” and that Jenner is “like a sister” to him. “Why would you even think that? I used to date her sister @kourtneykardash,” he wrote. “I have three sisters too. I would never ever have sex with my sisters. That’s gross!!”

Over the years, Francis has faced various legal issues. In 2011, he was arrested and charged with three counts of false imprisonment, one count of assault causing great bodily injury and one count of dissuading a witness after he allegedly attacked another woman and bashed her head into his tile floor, according to NBC news. 

In April, a sneak peek of TNT’s new anthology series Rich & Famous alleged that Francis “tricked” women into “a child pornography film” for his Girls Gone Wild franchise.  

At the time Francis’ latest Instagram snap was taken, Jenner was dating rapper Tyga, who was allegedly also on the birthday trip. However, the two called it quits in 2017 and the California native moved on with Travis Scott. The pair share two children together, daughter Stormi and a son, who they welcomed in 2018 and 2022, respectively. 

These days, Stormi — and her baby brother — have become the main focus of the Kardashians star and Cactus Jack founder, though a source told Us Weekly in May that the twosome have “not ruled [a potential engagement] out” of the equation. 

“The priority has been about taking care of the kids,” the insider explained to Us at the time. “Keeping things between themselves calm and chilled and setting up boundaries that will give them the best chance of staying together in the long term … She does like her independence but can’t imagine herself long-term with anyone other than Travis.”

The proud mom-of-two also shared an adorable Story as she took a walk with her two kids: one and a half year old Gus and Ozzie, whom she welcomed on October 21.

‘2 under 2.’ she wrote on the adorable snap which saw the boys in their respective strollers and Mandy bundled up in a plaid coat.  

Moore shares her two boys with husband Taylor Goldsmith, 37. The two have been married since 2018.

She admitted last month that she didn’t get the chance to ‘hunker down’ with first son Gus, returning to work on This Is Us a month after his March 2021 birth.

Speaking to Parents Magazine, she said: ‘To be able to close out this really seminal chapter of my life with This Is Us this past May and take this time now to kind of just hunker down and be a family, it’s something I didn’t get to experience with Gus. I’m relishing this time.’

‘Again, especially around the holidays, it’s so fun and it’s the perfect excuse to just stay home and be cozy and get my feet underneath me and figure out how to operate in this new chapter.

However, she will now make her TV return as Benita Alexander – while Ramirez will play Paolo Macchiarini – in the second season of Dr. Death, which is based on the third season of the Wondery podcast of the same name.

Season two will follow Macchiarini ‘a charming surgeon renowned for his innovative operations that earn him the nickname “Miracle Man.” When investigative journalist Benita Alexander approaches him for a story, the line between personal and professional begins to blur, changing her life forever,’ according to Variety.

‘As she learns how far Paolo will go to protect his secrets, a group of doctors halfway across the world make shocking discoveries of their own that call everything about the “Miracle Man” into question.’

The first season of Dr. Death, was based on the true story of Christopher Duntsch (played by Joshua Jackson), a neurosurgeon who became infamous for mutilating his patients. The negligent neurosurgeon killed two of his patients during surgery and maimed nearly three dozen others. 

There is currently no release date for the new season of Dr. Death, though the expected air date is sometime in 2023.

Sharna Burgess Depends on Mom ‘A Lot’ With Her, Brian Austin Green’s Baby

Published

on

Celeb moms also need their mothers every once in a while! Sharna Burgess opened up about how her “mum” has been there for her after she and Brian Austin Green welcomed their son in July.

“How it started … how it’s going,” the Dancing With the Stars pro, 37, wrote via Instagram on Friday, December 2, alongside two sweet photos of her mom holding baby Zane.

“It really does take a village,” Burgess continued in her caption. “I have depended on my mum a lot these last few months and especially weeks with us moving house. Watching her be a Grandma to my son has been so beautiful. The memories and moments and sometimes unsolicited advice 😉 have all been exactly what I needed at the time.”

She added: “Mums just know things and I totally get that now. And she is LOVING her Grandma duties and her now big family filled with all the kids and all the animals and all the love,” concluding the emotional post by writing, “Deep gratitude for my Mums strength, ability and desire to move her whole life here to be with us. I love you Woo.”

Burgess’ fellow DWTS costar Sasha Farber appeared to appreciate the dancer’s sentiment, commenting, “❤️❤️❤️,” in the caption of the post.

The Australia native previously gave credit to her mom when gushing over her baby boy. “I now wholeheartedly understand everything my mother ever said to me about how a mother’s love is unlike any other,” Burgess wrote via Instagram in a post days after Zane’s birth. “You know, the whole ‘you’ll understand when you have kids’ thing parents say… I get it now.”

She concluded the heartfelt message with an emotional sentiment about her little one. “I will love him and worry for him to my last breath and beyond,” she penned. “Heaven is a place on earth and I have found it.”

While Burgess didn’t hesitate to praise her mother’s skills with her son in her latest upload, she previously opened up to Us Weekly about her own instincts as a new mom.

“You’re like, ‘What if I don’t know what to do? What if I don’t have an instinct? What if I drop him?’ You have all these insane, irrational fears,” she exclusively told Us in August about her worries before welcoming Zane. However, the Disney+ personality told Us, the “motherly instinct” kicks in. “And you just somehow know that to do,” she shared.

Burgess and Green, 49, have been dating since 2020. The Beverly Hills, 90210, alum is also dad to four more sons. He shares Kassius, 20, with ex Vanessa Marcil, and Noah, 10, Bodhi, 8, Journey, 6, with ex-wife Megan Fox.

The Transformers star, 36, came to visit her sons’ youngest half-sibling soon after his birth.

“She came in and got some Zane snuggle time,” Burgess exclusively told Us just weeks after delivering her baby boy. “Which was wonderful and really great to see.”
