Panthers minority owner and advertising mogul Jordan Zimmerman has filed a lawsuit against two fellow Boca Raton businessmen to recoup a $1 million investment into a pornography website that he thought was a legitimate dating service a source has confirmed.

Zimmerman and co-plaintiff Al Malnik gave Marc Bell and Dan Staton $1 million apiece to invest into FriendFinder Network. They stated in the suit filed in Palm Beach County court that they never heard of the company involved and didn’t know that the site was a successor to Penthouse Magazine’s pornography empire which is linked to thousands of X-rated websites.

"It was bait and switch" said David Goldstein Zimmerman’s lawyer told Gossipextra.com. "They were investing in FriendFinder and they ended up unknowingly investing somewhere else. They just want their money back."
