Directly after being released by the Huntington Beach Police Department yesterday on $25,000 bail, Tito Ortiz and his attorney Chip Matthews organized a news conference in North Hollywood to address his domestic assault charges. Their side of the story goes like this: Ortiz "never laid a hand on" his girlfriend Jenna Jameson. Jameson, an OxyContin addict for over a year (so they say), relapsed on the notorious painkiller, and when Tito confronted her about some pills that he’d found in their house, things got heated. After he left, she contacted the police department through another individual; her father Larry Massoli, reportedly. An emotional Ortiz thanked his fans and family for their support. He said he saw his parents go through addiction, and wouldn’t let it affect his family again. "I hold everything dear to my heart that Jenna will be okay," he said.
Of course, Jenna’s account of what transpired is markedly different…
From a report posted last night on TMZ:
Jenna Jameson claims Tito Ortiz got very violent — throwing and injuring her — and that he’s falsely accusing her of Oxycontin addiction because he’s "very, very desperate." TMZ just spoke with Jenna — while she was driving to Las Vegas — and her version of what led to Tito’s domestic violence arrest is brutal.
Jenna claims that during an argument Monday morning she, "said something very hurtful to his ego." She alleges that Tito then grabbed her and, "threw me into the bathtub and tore two ligaments in my shoulder." … Jenna says Tito’s addiction allegation is, "completely false" and "the last nail in the coffin" for their relationship.
Prior to those allegations, Jenna said she hoped to work things out with Tito for the sake of their two sons.
