Jenna Jameson's Wife Files For Divorce

In the heartbreaking video, Jessi films herself looking somber in an all-black ensemble featuring a beanie over her short blonde hair and a sweater. She takes a deep breath before kicking off a lengthy explanation about the end of her marriage, saying:

"This is a very difficult video for me to make. But here it goes. There are a lot of rumors going around that Jenna and I are getting a divorce, and I am making this video to confirm that."

Jumping into the reason for their breakup, Jessi added, "I told her in the beginning of our relationship that I was drawing a hard line and that drinking had led to so many problems in her life that I would not tolerate it at all under any circumstances."

"And this is the first time that she went to an event without me since we've been married," the heartbroken spouse laments. "This is the first time she's been away from me. I've been keeping her on the straight and narrow, and she goes to Chicago, and she starts drinking."

Jessi Lawless Claims Jenna Showed Zero Remorse About Drinking Again

Jessi recalls confronting Jenna about her drinking at the Chicago event; however, her partner allegedly refuted the claims. The story changed when the former claimed she had pictures of her holding a glass of champagne.

Although Jessi never had proof of Jenna's drinking, the latter believed her and finally came clean about giving in to her addictions. Unfortunately, she had zero remorse about it — a carefree attitude that broke her wife's heart.

"She has no remorse. She told me point blank, 'I'm not sorry. I don't feel sorry,'" Jessi recalls. "I'm crying, I'm literally…tears running down my face, begging for some sort of remorse from her, and she had none."

Jenna Allegedly Tried To Twist The Situation In Her Favor

Apart from allegedly having no remorse about drinking, Jessi claims Jenna tried to twist the narrative and avoid responsibility for her behavior. Recalling their conversation, the former adult film star's wife said:

"She just wanted to turn it around and blame me. I don't know how it's my fault, but maybe I shouldn't have had such high expectations."

Nonetheless, Jenna had crossed a line, and there was no room for negotiation in Jessi's book. "But that's it, I filed for an annulment, and it shouldn't take long to finalize," she added before concluding the video with a final message to her soon-to-be ex-spouse, saying:

"I'm sure you'll see this, Jenna. I love you with all of my heart, and I really hope that…I really hope the best for you."

Inside Jessi & Jenna's Relationship

Jessi's divorce announcement comes one month before the couple's first wedding anniversary. She tied the knot to Jenna in a Las Vegas ceremony on May 23, 2023, after the pair dated for about five months.

At the time, Jenna raved about their blossoming connection in an interview, saying:

"I found the person that I truly should have always been with. I try to go over in my mind why I ever dated or married men, and it's selfish and bad to say, but I think my driving force [was] children."

Three months into her married life, the former pornographic film actress doubled down on her claims about Jessi being the perfect partner for her. She told PEOPLE:

"[Jessi] just feeds my soul, and I'm happier and happier and happier every day I wake up next to her."
