Poker player throws naked porn star off roof of home

A millionaire poker player dubbed "Instagram's Biggest Playboy" has been captured on video throwing a naked porn star off his roof, leaving her with a broken foot.

Mr Dan Bilzerian, who shares snaps of his hard-partying lifestyle of naked women, private planes, luxury yachts and powerful weapons with his 1.4 million Instagram followers, decided to throw 19-year-old Janice Griffith from the roof of his Hollywood Hills mansion during a photo shoot last Wednesday.

A video of the incident shared on video sharing website LiveLeak shows him scooping up the naked teen, lifting her above his shoulder and throwing her from the roof to a pool below.

But she apparently grabbed onto his T-shirt at the last second and could be heard screaming as she fell into the water, reported news website Elite Daily.

"I broke my foot today," Miss Griffith later wrote on Twitter.

Last Thursday, she added: "I was looking forward to shooting for @SexAndSub so bad today, stupid broken foot."

'PART HULK'

But Mr Bilzerian, who is reportedly worth US$100 million (S$125 million), wrote on Twitter: "Dan Bilzerian was almost murdered by a naked female that tried to pull him off a rooftop hahaha good thing he's part hulk."

He made the bulk of his cash as a high-stakes gambler after developing his skills as a student at the University of South Florida.

He has won multiple tournaments, including the 2009 World Series of Poker. He is also a co-founder of an online gambling website.

Before gambling, he served with the US Navy but was kicked out of Seal training two days before graduating, for offending an officer. Mr Bilzerian has small roles in upcoming films The Other Woman and The Equalizer and is in the midst of developing a horror film.

He has also been giving to charity in an attempt to rebrand himself.

He gave US$100,000 to Typhoon Haiyan victims and US$20,000 to a family that adopted four children with major birth defects.
