(Newser) – The call girl who once serviced New York's governor is now charging $10 million—in a lawsuit against Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis, People reports. Ashley Alexandra Dupré alleges that Francis persuaded her to be filmed topless when she was underage and exploited her name and image for profit.

Francis said the lawsuit "shocked and amazed" him because he never released the video, and she consented to be in it. "She's seeking $10 million for topless photos taken in front of a room full of people, including two newspapers," he said. "These images were taken in public places and contain no sexual contact. We expect to triumph in this matter."
