Jenna Jameson, her right arm in a sling, tells INSIDE EDITION about the arrest of her boyfriend after an alleged act of domestic violence at their home.
"It's devastating. It's devastating to me to know that I'm going to have to explain this to my children. We had an argument. It escalated. And things got out of control," said Jameson.
She said Rihanna's courage after being beaten by singer Chris Brown inspired her to have her boyfriend Tito Ortiz arrested.
"After watching what happened to Rihanna I knew I had to call the police," said Jameson.
Ortiz was taken from their Los Angeles home in handcuffs. Jameson says he tore ligaments in her arm.
After the arrest, Jameson, her arm bandaged, helped her father pile her boyfriend's belongings into the back of a car.
Jameson is best known for her bestselling book, How to Make Love Like a Porn Star. She has become a mainstream celebrity, and she was even a guest on Oprah in 2009.
"I hold everything dear to my heart that Jenna will be ok," said Ortiz.
Tears rolled down her boyfriend's cheeks following his release on bail. His lawyer claimed that Jameson's prescription drug abuse forced Ortiz to confront her.
"I want to be quite clear. Tito Ortiz never laid a hand on Jenna. Never," said Ortiz's lawyer.

Jameson, who has 13-month-old twins with Ortiz, says she still loves him and wants to work it out.
"I'm hoping to fix things 100 per cent. I'm in love with Tito. I know people make mistakes and I'm willing to forgive," said Jameson.
