Tito Ortiz has reacted to Jenna Jameson's accusations that he used drugs and physically assaulted her. The UFC Hall of Famer denied the allegations and called the mother of his twins a liar. "The unfortunate allegations being made against me are simply not true," he told TMZ.
"I would never do anything to jeopardize my family. Being a great father and protecting the well-being of my children remains my top priority. I thank my family, friends, and fans for their kind words of support at this time. For my children's sake, I appreciate you respecting our privacy."
The former couple was embroiled in a bitter fight over the custody of their children. They were involved in a heated argument last month. The kids are currently placed under Ortiz's care. This led to Jameson's rant on Twitter, "My children need their mother not a random drug addict."
The former porn star later posted pictures of prescription drug bottles and syringes she claimed belonged to Ortiz. "He did drugs and faked drug tests for UFC. I all my time with my babies, he partied," she added. "Soon the story of how he almost killed me in February will be public."
In a statement to MMAJunkie, Ortiz claimed that it was Jameson who didn't want to see the kids. "She has opportunities to see her children. She hasn't shown up. She flakes out," he said. "I'm not out doing appearances at strip clubs and partying with people and going crazy. I'm here with my kids. From 6 a.m. to 8 o'clock at night."
"She has a problem, and I don't want to bash her because she's the mother of my children," he went on. "I just look at it as I can't help somebody that doesn't want to be helped. She can try and bash me as much as possible. The only thing it's hurting is my children."
In response, she said in a series of tweets, "He can say whatever he wants, but I know the truth. He beat me, and never was a father, bullied me, then disallowed my poor babies. Seems someone is bulls***ting his way through life.... I laugh at the fake *** drama he is creating. I watched his crazy drug use and have proof."
