Tito Ortiz denies domestic violence allegations, claims Jenna Jameson is addicted to drugs

UFC bad boy Tito Ortiz and his attorney Chip Matthews held a press conference late Monday evening to speak for the first time since Ortiz’s release from custody for alleged domestic violence against girlfriend Jenna Jameson. Matthews, speaking on his client’s behalf, indicated that Jameson’s addiction to the narcotic painkiller OxyContin was the reason behind the dispute which led to the arrest of the former UFC champion.

“Jenna has been fighting a battle with OxyContin addiction for the past year” said Matthews. “For Tito and her family this has been an uphill battle. Unfortunately this morning she had a relapse. Tito was trying to help her, she has threatened suicide before. Tito has done everything in his power to protect her privacy and the privacy of their children…Tito never touched Jenna.”

According to Matthews, Ortiz confronted Jameson on Monday morning at the couple’s home in Huntington Beach, California regarding drugs he had found. As a result of the confrontation, she suffered an emotional meltdown which prompted Jameson’s father to make the 911 call. Matthews also reinforced numerous times that Ortiz never laid a hand on his girlfriend and that Jameson’s family have now sided with Ortiz as they are well aware of her alleged drug addiction.

A visibly distraught Ortiz struggled to hold back tears during the press conference.

“It means the world to me, my friends and family for their support,” he said. “My parents have gone through an addiction, and I’ve seen a mirror again, and I’m not going to let my family go through that. I speak from the heart, and as I say … I hold everything dear to my heart that Jenna will be OK.”

Meanwhile, according to a report on celebrity news website TMZ, Jameson claimed Ortiz “threw me into the bathtub and tore two ligaments in my shoulder.” She also claimed Ortiz’s addiction allegations are, “completely false” and “the last nail in the coffin” for their relationship.

Ortiz has not been formally charged with a crime.

    I just want to say I believe Tito. Ever since this has happened Jenna has been all over TMZ doing interviews and even taking photo ops with their kids. She gave an interview last night saying Tito never layed a hand on her, Tito then has his press conference and states she has a drug problem and then she calls him a wife beater and then off she went to drink in Vegas. I really truly believe she has a problem and doesn’t want to admit it, I believe Tito is telling the truth and think when all the facts come out he will be proven innocent.

  • Con says:

    It is so difficult to find the truth in situations like this. Jenna, with her history in the porn business and the connection between that and substance abuse raises a few red flags. On the other hand Tito’s history of bold face lying such as the whole intervention with Chuck about his alcoholism doesnt make me trust Tito. We will never know the truth.

  • Madmax says:

    Agreed, well said.

  • JBAR says:

    I hope everything works out for both of them. It is really nobody’s business but theirs anyway. I dang sure will not be passing any judgment on either side based on TMZ or a press conference, both are full of crap.

  • Angry Mike says:

    I couldn’t care less about either of these damaged narcissists. If there’s anything tragic about them, it’s the fact they didn’t have the decency to recognize their issues and forgo having kids. But they did, and now they’re creating the next generation of damaged victimizers.

  • Rece Rock says:

    That apprentice stock photo of Ortiz is sure gaining alot of mileage on the internet these days…

  • fanoftna33 says:

    I figured he just pulled her around a bit by the bandage, hopefully if there is a drug issue that gets addressed fast, hopefully these issues dont go any further.

    Anyone who has truly known an addict (not someone who uses drugs, but someone who’s strung out on drugs immensely), knows these people are so far gone that anything is possible (self mutilation, depression, suicide threats, etc). They are highly depressed, extremely emotional, and some develop abandonment issues (make wild threats/accusations, etc). – So it is actually very likely (if she’s really an addict) that it could be false allegations.

    I personally don’t have a hard time believing she’s an addict. Given her past profession (success/longevity), her current body stigmata, and her life situation, it seems perfectly plausible.

    I do however believe he could have thrown her into the shower/bath (to sober up) in an emotional rage/fit. I know that seeing a person you love in an addiction can be extremely hard & frustrating; nothing seems to get to them (sink in). I’ve had family/friends fall into this web on many occasions. After seeing so much self destruction, you just want to shake them as hard as you can and scream “wake up!!”, “Your killing yourself”, “Grow up, and stop making excuses”… kinda stuff… very frustrating (and only so because you care about them so much). I can see this happening to Tito, and I can see him grabbing her by the arm (which is really nothing) and pushing her into the shower (in a fit) screaming at her to “wake up! Your a druggie. Think of our Kids” kinds thing…I wouldn’t blame him…. He still shouldn’t technically put his hands on her, but given the situation, emotion, this should be played down a bit. In the end She wasn’t really hurt (so no harm, no foul).

    P.S. – I think Tito is a douche… but just keeping it real…

  • fanoftna33 says:

    I just read Dana’s comments that domestic violence by his fighters is the #2 worst thing they can do and if these charges are true he will cut Tito. WTF Dana, Tito grabs his wife by the arm and you use that as an excuse to firs or cut the guy but guys like Johnson break into his girlfriends house and hit them and you do nothing……

  • manny says:

    Yeah DW is an idiot…
    Any little excuse to cut a fighter and he’ll jump over that just to release him.
    Once the truth’s out, tito will still be in the ufc.

  • 3OAM says:

    I read Jenna Jameson’s biography (don’t ask me why…it’s like a Dear Abbey-Penthouse Forum mashup) and if she really has a drug problem, it wouldn’t be the first time…or the second time. She has a very dependent personality (or so her bio says).

    I’m with Tito on this one.

  • Yourdaddydevilandlord says:

    I knew he didn’t hit her….. she would have submitted him with punches in the first two minutes. Can I bet on the rematch? Is this issue the reason he isn’t fighting and her myspace has been cryptic and sad for months now? Postpartum depression or post porn career depression. Was she bummed out because she realized she looks like a friggin’ alien now? Is that what happened, she snuck up on Tito from behind, he thought he was being abducted by an alien, and he punched her?
    Before you say it, no I’m not sexist or racist, I hate white men too. Just because she is reverting back to her original Grey alien form doesn’t mean I wouldn’t still make hate to her.

  • Batman says:

    she probably beat herself up to screw tito over because she was pissed off at him. Girls can be scandalous like that and I wouldn’t expect any less from a porn star. He probably threatened to tell everybody about her drug problems and he wants the kids so she had to strike back at him, it’s a no brainer. Think outside the box.

  • To be honest, each party is probably telling a little bit of the truth mixed in with a little bit of lies.

  • BillyWarhol says:

    Jenna is Awesomee in JINX!! Highly recommended!!

  • chopperj65 says:

    If I was living with Tito I would probably develop a drug addiction too just to get me through the day. Is anyone really surprised by this whole situation????

  • JabCrossHook says:

    I actually believe Tito, well actually I believe that Jenna has an Oxycontin addiction, because where I live its a fucking epidemic of pill dope. It’s funny how they call it a narcotic but its a legally prescribed medication. If its so dangerous don’t prescribe it but no sorry the gov’t makes too much money from the pharmaceutical companies to give a shit.

    It’s a narcotic because it’s an opioid derivative, not because it’s dangerous. Hydrocodone, codeine, and several other prescription drugs are narcotics and they’re prescribed all the time for pain and other issues. It’s not legal because the government makes so much money off of it, they can’t tax prescriptions, it’s legal because it’s a powerful pain killer and when used correctly it’s a wonderful tool for physicians.

    Thanks for the opinion, doctor.

    There is a reason prescription medications need to be PRESCRIBED. It is because people can’t be trusted to take them properly. Of course some people manage to get them anyway (money buys most everything), but they have no business deciding if they do or do not need those medicines. They are too easy to abuse, and that is why a doctor needs to say if you NEED it or not.

  • hk72 says:

    Having been in a similar situation as Tito, I gotta say, I think believe him. I had the same thing happen to me. My soon-to-be ex-wife is an alcoholic and its very difficult to reason with her. Woman who has abused substances in the past and then combine that with potential post part um depression and then continued abuse = total crazy bitches which is seems what we got here. I reckon at worse he tried to restrain her. I hate when people assume right away its the guy who hit the woman – Puder is a little bitch. Women can be crazy bitches too, and I’ve known quite a few.

    This sounds so familiar .I have had my share of caring for woman who don’t really care for themselfs. Problem children . My X was a former stripper ,escort the whole gambit. Drugs, Alcohol in and out of rehabs. .But she was determined to do herself in, and did.. Know amount of love will change them.
    Sadly TITO is in the same sort of situation. A woman with Jenna’s history and past lifestyle does not and can not change .Sadly she is doomed. And if Tito doesn’t get rid of her .She will drag him down into the depths of despair also. Once a whore always a whore .Once a drug addict .Always a drug addict .
    A tiger doesn’t change it’s strips. But some of us have to learn this the hard way.
