Popular porn star hit with shock divorce after less than year of marriage


Former porn star Jenna Jameson’s wife has filed an annulment to end their union after less than a year of marriage.

Jessi Lawless, an influencer and a retired hairstylist, posted an emotional video confirming the “rumours” of their split, while claiming it had occurred due to Jameson’s alleged drinking.

“There are a lot of rumours going around that Jenna and I are getting a divorce, and I’m making this video to confirm that,” she shared on TikTok Tuesday.

The estranged couple tied the knot on May 23 in an intimate Las Vegas ceremony at Little Church of the West, the New York Post reports.

“Jenna’s relationship is different with Jessi because women understand women, and Jenna feels completely at ease and peace with Jessi. She is able to be herself around her,” her agent told the publication at the time of their nuptials.

However Lawless, 41, alleged the pair had split suddenly because she drew a “hard line” on 50-year-old Jameson’s alleged drinking, stating alcohol led to “so many problems” in the former porn star’s life.

This line was apparently crossed when Jameson allegedly was seen consuming champagne in photos taken during a solo trip.

“This is the first time she’s gone to an event without me since we’ve been married. This is the first time she’s been away from me. I’ve been keeping her on the straight and narrow,” Lawless claimed.

“She goes to Chicago, and she starts drinking. And then when I confronted her about it, she was definitely trying to lie about it until I told her … that people have sent me pictures of you with champagne in your hand.

“She admitted it, obviously. I didn’t even really have the pictures, I just told her I did. I knew she was drinking.”

Lawless claimed Jameson has “no remorse” for her actions, which has led to the demise of their romance.

“I’m crying, literally tears running down my face, begging for some sort of remorse from her. And she had none. She just wanted to turn it around and blame me,” she alleged.

“I don’t know how it’s my fault, but maybe I shouldn’t have had such high expectations.”

She added that she filed for an annulment, which “shouldn’t take long to finalise”.

“I’m sure you’ll see this, Jenna,” Lawless concluded. “I love you with all of my heart, and I really hope the best for you.”

Shortly after the TikTok, Lawless also posted a screenshot of texts allegedly between her and Jameson in which Jameson claimed Lawless was “building a huge case for me to sue you, babe”.

“As if you have the money or energy for that,” Lawless shot back.

“… You won’t spend the money to be in your children’s life, but you will spend the money to ruin mine?” Lawless asked in another text. “Wow. Nice Jenna.”

It’s not clear if Jameson knew about the divorce before the video was publically posted.

Fans quickly flocked to Jameson’s Instagram after Lawless’ updates. One fan commented on a photo of Jameson in Chicago, asking, “Are you OK?”

“Nope,” Jameson replied.

This was Jameson’s third marriage. She was married to “The King of Porn” Brad Armstrong from 1996 to 2001 and former porn actor Jay Grdina from 2003 to 2006.

She has 15-year-old twin sons Journey and Jesse with UFC icon Tito Ortiz, as well as 7-year-old daughter Batel with former fiancé and Israeli businessman Lior Bitton.
