Tito Ortiz’ ex wife Kristin has told RadarOnline.com that the professional cage fighter never laid a finger on her during their relationship.
Hulking 6 ft 3 inch 235lbs Ortiz – who has twin boys Jesse and Journey with his live-in porn star girlfriend Jenna Jameson – claims that he never touched her following a bust-up at their Huntington Beach home on Monday
Jameson has filed a restraining order against Ortiz and has been walking about with her arm in a sling.
But Kristin Ortiz - who was married to the fighter for five years – claims there was NO domestic violence in their relationship.
She told RadarOnline.com: “Look, I have known Tito since he was a 15-year-old in High School and he never once hit me.
“There was never anything remotely like that while we dated or when we were married -Tito is not that kind of person and I’m not saying that to protect him or anything.
“Obviously, I cannot comment on his relationship with Jenna but that was my experience with him.
“He was in Arizona last week to take our 7-year-old son Jacob to a wrestling competition and he is a good father – I have a good relationship with him too.
“I am praying for him and Jenna and I hope that their twins will be okay and that they can all get through this.”
Kristin Ortiz was formerly involved with her ex-husband’s clothing line Punishment Athletics but he bought-out her share of the company – the couple was married for five years with their divorce being formalized in 2008.
Ortiz claimed at a press conference that Jameson’s addiction to pain killers led to their fight and that he had been trying to protect her.
His lawyer Chip Matthews said, "Tito never touched Jenna." He claims that Jenna had a relapse and that Tito confronted her about the drugs he claims to have found. Matthews suggested Jenna was high and just lost her balance.
His client said that he hopes ‘Jenna will be okay before adding: “My parents have gone through addiction and I'm not going to let my family go through that.”
It’s understood that Jameson has gone to Las Vegas while Ortiz has returned to the home they share in Huntington Beach.
