Steve Wynn and and the “Girls Gone Wild” founder Joe Francis faced off before jurors Tuesday, with the casino mogul denying that he threatened to kill the porn producer and saying the accusation is threatening his casino business.

Jurors listened to wildly varying accounts of whether Wynn threatened to hit Francis over the head with a shovel and have him buried in the desert, with the soft-porn producer insisting he heard about the threats from record executive Quincy Jones. Francis testified that Jones told him Wynn made the threats in conversations and emails, but Wynn denies it.

“I’ve never sent an email in my life,” the 70-year-old of the casino empire that includes, The Mirage, Bellagio, Wynn and Encore, told jurors.

Wynn is suing Francis for slander, the latest legal fight in ongoing battles between the two men that include gambling debt that Francis racked up in one of Wynn’s casinos.

“It would be a singularly self-destructive act – incredibly, incredibly stupid,” Wynn said.

“I’m sitting here because Joe Francis decided he wanted to destroy my company because he didn’t want to pay his marker,” Wynn said.
