    New York (ANI): Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis can relax a bit now, for two young women who filed a suit against him over their appearance in one of his raunchy videos, have dropped the case and apologized. Francis, who is in prison for tax evasion charges, said that he is very pleased by the news.

    "I'm very pleased with the events today. It's a sign of things to come. I'm sure that there will be another similar lawsuit that will follow it," the New York daily News quoted him, as saying. Earlier, Brooke Patsolic and Christina Brose had claimed that they did not know their sexual antics would be included in Girls Gone Wild: Endless Spring Break Vol. 6.

    However, after Francis put out a video on his site, showing one of them agreeing to be filmed, the duo issued a statement saying 'we have agreed to dismiss our lawsuit and acknowledge that no money has been paid to either of us".

    Francis described the women's case as sinister. "It's purely based off of greed. Lawyers ... think I'm in jail now and I can't defend myself and I can't fight back, and they're wrong," he said. Along with his tax evasion problem in Nevada, Francis also faces a contempt of court rap relating to dropped felony charges in Florida.
