Here’s this for a defense … she did it to herself.
International mixed martial arts Tito Ortiz and his lawyer called a press conference Monday to deny claims he beat his girlfriend, porn star Jenna Jameson.
“My parents have gone through an addiction … I’m not gonna let that happen to my family,” Ortiz said according to the Los Angeles Times. “I hold everything dear to my heart that Jenna will be okay.”
The UFC fighter’s lawyer said Jameson hurt herself while high on the drug OxyContin.
“Tito never touched Jenna,” attorney Chip Matthews said during the press conference. “A lot of times when there is drug abuse a lot of times people want to play the victim.”
Ortiz was jailed on felony domestic violence after Jameson’s father called police and reported a fight Monday.
Jameson, one of the most well-known adult movie star in the world, denied drug abuse, saying Ortiz is “trying to save his career,” according to TMZ.
Jameson at first denied being beaten, saying she was manhandled by Ortiz.
After Ortiz denied the assault, Jameson called Ortiz a “wife beater.”
She said she was attacked after saying something hurtful to Ortiz’s ego and that he threw her into the bathtub, tearing two ligaments in her shoulder.
Jameson and Ortiz met on Myspace in 2006. They have twin boys.
