Tito Ortiz and his lawyer held a press conference after his release from jail to say that Jenna is addicted to drugs and that is what lead to their altercation.
According to FoxNews,
“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,” attorney Chip Matthews said. “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.”
According to Matthews, on Monday morning the UFC champ confronted his girlfriend (and mother of their twin boys) about the drugs he had found and she denied it. Jameson was allegedly suffering an “emotional breakdown”, prompting a 911 call from Jameson’s father Larry who was reportedly not in the room at the time of the confrontation.
Matthews also reinforced numerous times that Ortiz never ever laid a hand on Jameson.
“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. I am not going to let my family go through that,” a sobbing Ortiz told us. “I speak from my heart, I hold everything dear to my heart that Jenna will be okay.”
He also insisted that the police do not have to have visible signs of injury to make an arrest in domestic disputes, and that the police report indicated that Jameson had “a scratch on her elbow” which may explain why she was photographed leaving a CVS pharmacy wearing a medical brace on her right arm just hours after the arrest.
“When you’re dealing with people on OxyContin they don’t always have the best sense of balance,” Matthews added. “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.”
