Snoop Sued By Underage Girls Who Appear In 'Girls Gone Wild' Video

Teens allege that the rapper lured them with offers of drugs.

Snoop Dogg has been named in an affidavit claiming that he and the makers of the

"Girls Gone Wild: Doggy Style" tape lured two underage girls

to take their tops off for the camera by offering them marijuana and ecstasy.

According to an affidavit posted on the Smoking Gun Web site, the footage of

Jaime Capdeboscq and friend Whitni Candiotto, both of whom appeared in the

Snoop-lensed "Girls Gone Wild: Doggy Style" video, is part of the evidence

amassed in an ongoing criminal investigation into "Girls Gone Wild" producer Joseph

Francis. The affidavit, filed in late April by Faith Bell, an investigator

with the Bay County Sheriff's Office, alleges that Francis and his employees

knowingly taped underage girls for his productions, often enticing them to commit

sex acts and disrobe, sometimes for money.

The Snoop footage was shot on February 12, 2002, when the rapper joined the "Gone Wild" crew at Mardi Gras (see "Snoop Dogg Asks Mardi Gras Women To, Uh, You Know ..."). The affidavit alleges that Snoop and the film crew "did solicit, lure, entice and pressure, through the use of their

celebrity status and through offers of illegal narcotics such as marijuana and

'ecstasy' ... [the two underage women] to disrobe and expose their breasts for the

purpose of use in a 'Girls Gone Wild' film."

The document also alleges that the producers and Snoop were aware that the

two were underage. The affidavit contains an allegation that authorities seized

a videotape from Francis in which he refers to Snoop as a "bitch magnet." The

two teens appear on the cover of the video and in TV commercials with their

breasts exposed.

A spokesperson for "Girls Gone Wild" producers Mantra Films

said lawyers for the company could not be reached for comment at press time.

The two teens have also filed suit in federal court in Louisiana

against the producers and Snoop for improperly using their images in the

commercials and on DVD boxes to promote the series. According to the Smoking

Gun, Snoop recently said in a court filing that the two women voluntarily exposed

themselves and consumed alcohol and "other intoxicants" during the shoot.

The affidavit was filed a few months before Snoop — who has his own adult

film imprint, Snoopadelic Pictures — distanced himself from the "Gone Wild"

series, citing its lack of exposure for women of color. A spokesperson for Snoop

could not be reached by press time.

"If you notice, there hasn't been no girls of [ethnicity] at all on none of

those tapes," Snoop told the Associated Press in a June 25 story. "No

black girls, no Spanish girls — all white girls, and that [stuff] ain't cool."

Snoop pledged to do his own multi-ethnic "Girls" tape at the time, saying he'd

gotten copious complaints from women about his "Wild" tape. "They think I like

the white girls because I'm on there with them," he said. "And I don't, I

just did that for money."

Francis was arrested on April 3 and is charged with 22 counts, among them

drug trafficking and knowingly videotaping underage women and paying them to

perform sex acts. The charges are tied to a different "Girls Gone Wild" taping

that took place in Panama City Beach, Florida, during last year's spring break,

according to investigator Bell.
