Tito Ortiz responds to allegations of abuse, drug use from Jenna Jameson

Tito Ortiz responds to allegations of abuse, drug use from Jenna Jameson

UFC light heavyweight Tito Ortiz is a Hall of Famer but the 38-year old is currently dealing with a fight far more serious than any he ever encountered inside the Octagon. His opponent in the bout is unfortunately a familiar one, as pornstar/actress Jenna Jameson – also the mother to their twin sons – has once again spoken out publicly against Ortiz while making some disturbing allegations.

Jameson went on Twitter this week where she accused Ortiz of physically and mentally abusing her, also stating he’d cheated numerous times in his career while providing a picture of some syringes in a drawer.

“He can say whatever he wants, but I know the truth. He beat me, and never was a father, bullied me, then disallowed my poor babies,” wrote Jameson. “My ex took my poor children away from me for NO reason. He did drugs and faked drug tests for UFC. In all my time with my babies, he partied.”

“My children need their mother not a random drug addict,” she continued, adding a major blow at the end of her rant. “Soon the story of how he almost killed me in February will be public.”

As expected, Ortiz responded in a statement showing more concern than anger at Jameson’s behavior.

“The unfortunate allegations being made against me are simply not true. I would never do anything to jeopardize my family. Being a great father and protecting the well-being of my children remain my top priority,” posted Ortiz in a Tweet. “I thank my family, friends, and fans for their kind words of support at this time. For my children’s sake, I appreciate you respecting our privacy.”

Ortiz provided a little more insight in a follow-up conversation with MMAJunkie, telling the outlet, “She has a problem, and I don’t want to bash her because she’s the mother of my children. But I’ve tried to help somebody for the last seven years. I tried to make a family, and it’s hard to do that when somebody else doesn’t want to contribute. I just look at it as I can’t help somebody that doesn’t want to be helped. She can try and bash me as much as possible. The only thing it’s hurting is my children.”

“I’ve been in the UFC for 15 years. I’ve taken drug tests at every single one of my fights. I take them months before my fight, a month before my fight, right before my fight, after the fight,” he explained on her comments pointing to PED use. “She can try to bash me as much as possible, but it is what it is. When someone has a problem like she does, she can’t help herself. I tried for seven years to help her. Right now, it’s just about my children.”

    I read both of their twitter comments, it’s very strange, the tweets are fine, then all of a sudden she starts talking about not having her kids and wanting them back, and he starts talking about how everyone says he’s a better person now that he’s single. Very weird.

  • Dufresne says:

    I’m not usually a Tito advocate, mostly because he comes across as a whinny ass, but her tweets seem a bit off. The picture she showed of “Tito’s drawer” contained a few syringes that look like the type you use for either insulin or for draining cauliflower ear, the string bodies were tiny. And the prescription bottle in the corner clearly says ibuprofen, so it’s not like she’s showing any real evidence. Besides, if you have real evidence, why would you put it on twitter and not bring it to the authorities? Just seems off to me.

  • AlphaOmega says:

    I think Dufresne she thinks people aren’t smart enough to figure all that out, or look closely at the pictures, and are suppose to just side with her because she’s the ‘victim’

    Custody battles and related legal woes are just brutal. As a rule of thumb, one should avoid knocking up skanky, druggy, good-times women. Thank the spaghetti monster I’ve never had the displeasure of doing that.

    Cant make a ho a house wife.

  • MCM says:

    I have no problem with Jenna being a porn(ex) star. I have no issues with women selling sex as a way to make money, and I have no issues with women becoming millionaires off it. If I was a hot chick and thought I could make Jenna Jameson money, I might have considered going the same route. I’ll not begrudge nor judge her for her past method of employment.

    That said, I have to fully agree with Alpha and Duf on this one. She seems to come across as slightly off her rocker while Tito is coming off as the calm, measured, and sane one. Now, I’ve only seen Tito on TV so I can’t say what he’s like in person or when the cameras are off, but from what I’ve seen on how he treated the fighters on TUF and how I’ve read he is in person, I have a very hard time imagining him as being an absentee or abusive father.

  • Dufresne says:

    MCM, I’m inclinded to agree with you. Throughout all of his appearances, self promoting or whinny douchbaggery in nature, he’s seemed pretty consistent on only one thing, and that’s family. I have a hard time believing that he was neglecting his kids through this entire “relationship”. And I have an even harder time believing that he turned down the “Guest of Honor” spot at the Marine Corps Ball because they wouldn’t allow Jenna as his guest if he wasn’t at least at one point serious about their relationship. Tito is a lot of things, and a self promoter is a huge part of what he is, so to turn down such an honor for someone is a massive statement in my eyes. Regardless of what I, or the rest of the world thinks, that says that he sincerely cared about her at some point.
    And I remember a few of his interviews after their twins were born. Either he’s an award winning actor (to see how good of an actor most MMA stars are, see any MMA star in any movie ever, they all sucked) or he legitimately was excited and cared about those kids. I just don’t see a guy who puts that much care into his training partners neglecting his own blood.

    My buddy met Tito many years ago at a party in orange county. My buddy was pretty drunk, overly talkative and bit annoying. He said he bothered Tito for a long time and Tito was totally cool and friendly. And this was when Tito was at the height of his career and popularity. Also, considering that Tito has seen drugs in his own family at a young age and been vocal about it for many years..I doubt he was using any hard drugs. I mean we all smoke a lil wacky tabbacky every once in a while lol
