Tito Ortiz Accuses Jenna Jameson of Drug Use After Arrest For Abuse

Mixed martial arts star Tito Ortiz claims Jenna Jameson is addicted to Oxycontin, and blames her drug use for his domestic violence arrest on Monday.

This after Ortiz was arrested in Huntington Beach at the home he shares with his girlfriend of over three years and the mother of his infant twin sons. He was released from custody after posting $25,000 bail.

"Jenna has been fighting a battle with OxyContin addiction for the past year. For Tito and her family this has been an uphill battle. Unfortunately this morning she had a relapse," says his lawyer Chip Matthews.

"We're here because Tito was trying to help her, she has threatened suicide before. Tito Ortiz never laid a hand on Jenna. Tito has done everything in his power to protect her privacy and the privacy of their children."

"But when you're dealing with people on Oxycontin they don't always have the best sense of balance. Jenna and Tito have two children together, they planned on spending the rest of their lives together. They want nothing more than to work together on this."

"It means the world to me, my friends and family for their support. My parents have been through an addiction and I see it in the mirror again," adds Ortiz.

"I am not going to let my family go through that. I speak from my heart, I hold everything dear to my heart that Jenna will be OK."

Matthews said the 35-year-old Ortiz found drugs in their home Monday morning and that's what led to the confrontation that ended with Ortiz's arrest.

Meanwhile, Jameson says she feels 'betrayed' by Ortiz.

"Tito is a loving, sweet man and I've always supported him through everything," she says. "But for him to lash out at me like this is shocking, and I feel completely betrayed. And I feel bad for my children."

She hinted that she plans to file a restraining order against Ortiz in the coming weeks.
