UFC fighter Tito Ortiz, who was arrested on domestic violence charges Monday, says he didn’t lay a hand on girlfriend Jenna Jameson and blames the incident on Jameson slipping back into bad habits.

At a news conference late Monday (April 26), Ortiz said Jameson is addicted to Oxycontin and had a relapse earlier in the day. KTLA reports that a tearful Ortiz says he didn’t hit his ex-porn star girlfriend and the mother of his two children.

“I speak from the heart,” Ortiz said at the news conference, held at an Italian restaurant in North Hollywood. “… I hold everything dear to my heart that Jenna will be OK.”
