Larry Flynt Sued by His Brother for $20 Million

Jimmy Flynt, the estranged brother of Larry Flynt, is suing the Hustler publisher for $20 million in compensation and damages for wrongful termination and breach of contract.

Jimmy Flynt worked for his brother’s pornography company until 2009, receiving an annual salary of $250,000. According to the lawsuit filed in Cincinnati court, Jimmy Flynt claims he’s responsible for the Hustler retail brand:

Hustler retail was Jimmy’s idea, has been highly profitable and has allowed expansion into many other areas and business areas, including gaming. Jimmy opened the first Hustler store and was the first to use the Hustler mark in commerce, in retail. Jimmy literally built Hustler retail from the ground up.”

Earlier this year, a federal judge ruled Larry Flynt is the sole owner of Hustler and Jimmy Flynt isn’t entitled to half of the business.

Is the Rihanna & J. Cole Sex Tape Just Another Larry Flynt Publicity Stunt?

If so, it seems to be working. News of the tape has been widely reported, from the celebrity blogosphere to the Washington Post. Both Rihanna and J. Cole felt the need to respond to the rumor, which they deny.

True or not, Hustler, a division of Beverly Hills-based Larry Flynt Publications, is getting plenty of free publicity out of the deal. And that’s good for any publishing company. As with mainstream media, the combination of a recession and the proliferation of free online content has hit the porn industry hard. Hustler is no doubt feeling the squeeze, and making headlines certainly couldn’t hurt the bottom line.

And if the tape is real, it’s going to rake in some serious cabbage. Maybe it’s time to ask if Larry Flynt is hiring.

Larry Flynt Weighs In on Schwarzenegger Scandal

Hustler chieftain Larry Flynt was in San Francisco today publicizing his book One Nation Under Sex, a history of U.S. presidential sex scandals and their resulting impact on the political decision making process. So naturally, Joe Garofoli, a reporter for the Chronicle, asked him what he thought about today’s stunning Schwarzenegger revelations.

Flynt thinks Arnold’s household transgressions are worse than those of Bill Clinton but not quite as bad as the ones that tarnished John Edwards. He also feels that unlike Clinton, no one is going to feel sorry for Schwarzenegger:

Larry Flynt To Make A Sarah Palin-Based Porno

Lisa Ann, a 36-year-old adult movie actress from Huntington Beach, will play Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin in a video from porn mogul Larry Flynt‘s Hustler Video.

“Because Pedro wants to keep his job, we’ll just give you clues to the movie’s typically punny porn title: two words, the first a carpentry-based euphemism for sex, the second being “Paylin,” a mispelling perhaps to dodge any legal assaults.

“We’ll also skip around the plot, though expect cameos from actors playing “Condi Rice,” “Hillary Clinton” and in what [we] think and hope is a clothed role, “Bill O’Reilly.”

So, is Rupert Murdoch changing the WSJ? Readers of the story on Ashley Alexandra Dupre’s video mash-up seem to agree. Larry Flynt, however, remains true to form.

The “church” of L. Ron tried to shut down the rallies organized by Anonymous but had to fall back on videos, instead. Like this one. Think the church paid for those clips?
