(Newser) Girls Gone Wild mogul Joe Francis thought he'd hit the jackpot when he discovered he had raunchy videos of the call girl from the Spitzer sex scandal on file. But his find may prove less of a bonanza than he'd hoped, now that Ashley Alexandre Dupre has said she was under 18 when she spent a week on the Girls Gone Wild bus, the AP reports.

An email from Dupre's lawyer said Dupre was just 17 when the nude videos were made, adding that "it would be outrageous at the very least to play the video of an underage female on the Internet." Francis, who was in court in Florida last week over charges related to the filming of underage girls, said he would delay putting the videos online until his lawyers had looked into it.
