(Oh, Jenna. When will you learn?)
You’ll all be happy to know that Tito Ortiz and Jenna Jameson are now officially free to go on with their
trainwreck life together now that the Orange County District Attorney’s office has decided to close their case without laying charges against the former UFC light heavyweight champion for the highly publicized April 26 fight between the pair at their Huntington Beach home.
According to a report by Sherdog.com, Farrah Emami, a spokesperson for the Orange County District Attorney’s Office said on Thursday that the reason for the decision not to move forward with the case was a lack of tangible evidence.
“We declined to file charges based on insufficient corroboration to prove a case beyond a reasonable doubt,” Emami told Sherdog’s Loretta Hunt.
Ortiz was arrested for allegedly pushing Jameson, his longtime girlfriend and mother of their 13-month-old twin boys, and was booked on suspicion of domestic violence, and spent the day in jail before posting bail later that evening.
In a dramatic turn of events, "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" ran out of a televised press conference in tears that evening after his lawyer dropped a bombshell that Jameson was addicted to prescription pain killers — a claim she refuted by taking and passing a drug test the following day.
The couple has since reconciled, but not before Jameson got a teary-eyed TV appearance of her own. During a tell-all with US Magazine, Jameson said that the incident wasn’t the first time Ortiz became violent with her, but explained that the first time didn’t count because he was "obviously drugged" while on a night out at a club.
Well, I for one am glad all of this is over. It’s going to be weird when Tito finally fights again and we can all start reporting on REAL MMA news with his name attached to it. Don’t get me wrong, I’d totally watch a reality show if they made one starring the pair of them, if only for the comedic value of the monologue segments.
I just hope that dodging this legal bullet doesn’t give him a big head.
