[Radar Online] A world-famous actress has had a secret video recording of her suffering a terrifying dr*g and booze overd*se presented in a court as part of her bitter child custody case, RadarOnline.com can reveal.
Radar has chosen not to identity the superstar caught on camera — other than she is a middle-aged Hollywood figure who has won major international awards for her on-screen work.
But this website can report that a disgruntled former assistant of the actress — she is one of the most recognizable faces to appear on the silver screen and has starred in dozens of films — provided the cell phone video to the woman’s estranged partner.
He subsequently used it in support of his bid to strip her of custodial rights of their children.
The case is currently before a judge and remains under court seal.
Both parties involved are purportedly prevented from discussing it publicly.
According to well-placed sources, the ex-colleague of the top star told court that she had overd*sed on a potentially lethal cocktail of Xan*x, Vic*din and Ambi*n, which she knocked back with up to eight bottles of top-shelf Dom Pérignon champagne.
However, in response to the charges, the actress denied it was an overd*se: She insisted that she suffered a seizure brought on by the stress of the custody fight, one insider revealed.
In an exclusive interview, the assistant, who also cannot be named, spoke to Radar about the terrifying ordeal which is said to have occurred in April this year.
“On this particular day, I left her for an hour or so and went to go and get her food because she hadn’t eaten for days,” the assistant said.
“When I returned, I found her on the dining room floor face down. I turned her around and was shaking her and trying to wake her up. She opened her eyes and started convulsing.
“She could have been out for an hour.
“I thought she was dead or dying. That is why I recorded the video because I wanted to make sure no one thought we killed her.”
Although the assistant said friends were eventually able stabilize the hard-partying star, they were horrified to learn she’d taken some of their prescription drugs.
They discovered a “stash” in the home, where the troubled actress had been staying after her partner kicked her out of the family home.
“I noticed my bottle of Xanax and Hydrocodone had been touched because my purse wasn’t where I had left it,” the assistant added.
Despite the lucky escape, the star refused to be treated at a hospital or enter rehab.
“She didn’t want to go because she didn’t want the media to find out,” the assistant said. “We gave her water and took care of her (until she was better).”
The pal feared the incident was a deliberate attempt to kill herself.
“She would always talk about killing herself,” the assistant added. “She knows she will die young like her mother.”
The actress lost custody of her children following a nuclear confrontation with her partner around the same time as the overdose. She is still fighting to regain some custodial rights.
It’s Jenna Jameson and Tito Ortiz!
Porn star Jenna Jameson and mixed martial artist Tito Ortiz had a long nasty fight over custody of their twin boys. Accusations of abuse flew back and forth, with Ortiz being arrested for felony domestic violence in 2010. Ortiz was also arrested on DUI charges in Los Angeles on January 6, 2014.
Just three months after publishing this blind item, RadarOnline solved it themselves! From Radar:
Leaked Video From INSIDE Jenna Jameson & Tito Ortiz’s Home
Exposes Porn Star’s Boozing, Pill Popping & Violent Rage
— In Front Of Her Kids
An explosive new video was just leaked online from inside Jenna Jameson and Tito Ortiz‘s home, showing the porn star allegedly drinking alcohol while her children are around, popping pills and even smashing surveillance cameras in a violent rage — and RadarOnline.com has the video.
The shocking footage — titled “Someone was always watching Jenna Jameson” — was posted by user Dave Delino and shows clips of Jameson’s ex and father of her children, Ortiz, with the children in the kitchen, but it’s what the camera catches Jameson doing that is disturbing.
At the 2:00 mark Jameson appears to pull an entire bottle of wine from the floor at her bedside and drinks straight from it, while her children are in the room.
That clip is dated March 13, 2013.
On March 16, 2013 Jameson again hobbles into her bedroom and drinks from the hidden bottle beside her bed while her 4-year-old twins, Journey and Jesse, play on the computer.
The former porn star also appears to pop pills by her dresser at various points in the footage.
The video is captioned, “Jenna Jameson drinking,taking pills,and smashing cameras. All in front of her boys. These are some of the reason why Tito Ortiz has full custody of those boys.”
Later in the clip Jameson is seen at the 6:40 mark climbing up a ladder and smashing the interior surveillance camera in her living room with a hammer, timestamped Nov. 8, 2012.
Moments later she does the same to the camera in her kitchen, and then seven hours later destroys the one in her bedroom.
Jameson, 39, eventually makes her way around the entire home, smashing all the cameras.
In May 2012 Jameson was arrested and charged with three misdemeanor counts for DUI, driving with a blood-alcohol level more than three times the legal limit, and she was sentenced to three years probation.
Then in April 2013 she was arrested for battery after she assaulted her assistant with a brass knuckle iPhone.
This behavior prompted Ortiz to finally question her ability to take care of their children, and he has had full custody of the boys since the summer.
“[She’s the] mother of my children and I pray and I wish she would get help for herself. I lived with her a long time,” Ortiz told FOX411 in October.
“The kids are full time with me. Does she get to see them? She hasn’t tried to see them in four and a half months. Now she’s ranting and raving that she would do anything to see the kids. She has to pass some tests before she sees them.”
