After a bitter exchange of allegations that spanned the better part of a week, are UFC star Tito Ortiz and porn queen Jenna Jameson ready to call a truce?
Both seem to want the matter to die down and are withdrawing allegations resulting in, and from, Tito’s felony domestic violence arrest earlier this week.
Jenna said Tito Ortiz assaulted her during an argument. She now says:
“What actually happened has been dramatically distorted and misinterpreted; Remarks Tito and I made after the police arrived reflect the state of shock we were both in.”
In other words, he didn’t do it, or she’s covering for him.
What happened between Tito and Jenna? We may never know.
Tito insinuated that Jenna is an OxyContin addict who relapsed and hurt herself that day. But now the fighter’s position is dramatically different as well.
He claims he found two OxyContin pills in a pair of her pants pocket and may have jumped to conclusions, as Jenna says the pills were very old. Tito’s lawyer, Chip Matthews, now says the whole thing was “a big misunderstanding.”
Jenna passed a drug test a day after the incident.
Why the change of heart? Tito stands to lose $15 million – his UFC contract plus other deals he’s a part of – if he’s prosecuted for domestic violence.
Makes sense that they want this drama to disappear ASAP. It’s obviously less consequential if the case goes away, but whose story did you believe?
