LOS ANGELES (AP) — Quincy Jones says he never told porn producer Joe Francis that casino mogul Steve Wynn threatened to kill him and have him buried in the desert.

The Grammy-winning record producer testified Thursday in Wynn's slander trial against Francis, which focuses on claims by the "Girls Gone Wild" founder that the casino creator vehemently denies.

Francis says Jones told him about Wynn's threats. Wynn denies ever threatening Francis and says the soft porn producer's accusations have the potential to damage his casinos, which include the Wynn and Encore in Las Vegas.

Jones says he never heard Wynn threaten Francis. He says Francis' accusations sound like a scene from "Scarface."

The producer also backed up Wynn's testimony that he never sent an email to Jones.
