Former UFC light-heavyweight champion, Tito Ortiz, recently had some harsh allegations levied against him by the mother of his twin boys, Jenna Jameson.
During a Twitter tirade, Jameson accused Tito of using performance enhancing drugs during his stint with the Ultimate Fighting Championship, as well as preventing her from having a relationship with their children.
Tito didn’t take the accusations lightly, and he defended himself during an interview with MMAJunkie.com.
“I’ve been in the UFC for 15 years. I’ve taken drug tests at every single one of my fights,” Tito said. “I take them months before my fight, a month before my fight, right before my fight, after the fight. She can try to bash me as much as possible, but it is what it is. When someone has a problem like she does, she can’t help herself. I tried for seven years to help her. Right now, it’s just about my children.”
According to Tito, he’s never tried to prevent Jameson from having a relationship with their children either.
“She has opportunities to see her children,” Ortiz explained. “She hasn’t shown up. She flakes out. I’m just trying to do the right things for my kids right now. I’m taking care of myself. I have a nanny helping me, and I’m trying to do the right thing for my children. The only thing she’s doing on the Internet right now bashing me is hurting my children. If people believe the things she says, I can’t do anything about it. People who know the kind of person I am, they can see how I am with my children. My true fans know how I am with my kids.”
As far as Tito Ortiz, who only won one of his last nine fights with the Ultimate Fighting Championship, is concerned, Jameson is no saint, and he even attributes some of his struggles inside the Octagon during the final chapter of his UFC career to their turbulent relationship.
“I went through so much drama,” Tito lamented. “All my fans know all the problems I had with her during my fights. It seems like every time that I had a fight coming up, she was getting a DUI or she was on the Internet or she was partying and just kind of ruining me mentally before my fights. I had enough with her, and I walked away, and I took full custody of the kids.”
