Jenna Jameson and Jessi Lawless working through split

Jenna Jameson has revealed she and her estranged wife Jessi Lawless are ‘trying to work through things’.

The former adult film star, 50, spoke directly with fans in a video posted to her Instagram on Sunday – two months after Jessi, 41, filed for annulment following less than one year of marriage. 

‘Jessi and I are trying to work through things and I wanted to be very clear about something. She was never abusive,’ Jenna said. 

‘She wasn’t everything that’s being portrayed right now. So we’re trying to work through things and I adore her and I don’t want her to be dealing with drama. She doesn’t deserve it. I love her.’

In the caption, Jameson tagged Jessi and wrote ‘I love you.’ The video was also shared by Jessi.

The former adult film star and Jessi tied the knot on May 23, 2023 following a whirlwind four month romance – but Jessi revealed their romance was over in a TikTok video back in April, citing Jenna allegedly drinking again as the cause. 

Shortly after, however, Jessi removed the video announcing she would be filing for annulment.  

The former adult film star’s spouse told TMZ she removed the clip for the sake of her ex’s well-being, after they had a ‘heart-to-heart phone call’, adding that there will always be ‘hope’ for them as a couple. 

‘I don’t want her mental health impacted any more than it already has been. I love her,’ Jessi told the publication.

‘This is a very delicate time for us. We’re both heartbroken and trying to find hope for the future,’ Jessi, who previously shared the pair were done after 11 months of marriage, said.

‘She’s told me she’d never drink again, and I can see at this point that she is in fact sober today and plans to remain that way. I just wanted her to be safe and healthy.’ 

Though Jessi didn’t reveal whether she was thinking about retracting her annulment filing, she told the outlet that because the pair ‘love’ each other there would always be hope for them and that she will see what the future holds.

She added that though she believes in forgiveness it takes ‘time and accountability.’

It comes after Jenna released a barbed statement after Jessi revealed their split.

In a seeming swipe at her ex, Jameson told DailyMail.com she hopes ‘that anyone struggling with addiction or trying to stay sober has access to an empathic and loving support system.’

She said: ‘Research has shown that empathy and understanding are better responses to addiction than judgement, shaming, and moralizing.”. says Jenna.

She adds: ‘Expressing your unconditional love and support may be one of the kindest things you can do. Let them know that you are there for them—relapse or not, ten days sober or 200.

‘Unfortunately, in the past, due to cultural attitudes surrounding addiction, tactics such as shaming, humiliating, shouting and “attack therapy” were commonplace.

‘Currently, rehab centers recognize that this approach would constitute malpractice and would have no place in the delicate process of treatment.

‘It is much more likely that clients will experience greater success when empathy is placed at the forefront of the client care process.’

Jameson has previously spoken openly about her struggles with addiction, mental illness and weight loss.

Jessi said: ‘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.

‘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.

‘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 said she had ‘confronted’ Jenna about drinking, claiming she was ‘definitely trying to lie about it.’

Jessi then falsely told her wife she had photos of her drinking champagne with Jameson then ‘admitting it’ with ‘no remorse’ – Jessi claims.

Jessi said: ‘She told me point blank, “I’m not sorry. I don’t feel sorry”.

‘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. But that’s it, I filed for an annulment and it shouldn’t take long to finalize.

‘I’m sure you’ll see this Jenna. I love you with all of my heart and I really hope the best for you.’

In 2012, Jenna was sentenced to three years probation after pleading guilty to a DUI charge. She gave up drinking in 2015.

In 2019 in an Instagram post, she wrote: ‘Sobriety has taught me a lot about myself, my coping mechanisms that I ignored came bubbling to the surface quickly after getting sober.

‘That scared me. Everything I knew was wrong. Everything I believed in was hurting me, not helping. Meetings and leaning on my Sober friends… made things bearable the first year. I was surviving. Sober. It was shocking at first, but now it’s my new normal.’

‘I think back to the way I used to run… run as far and as fast as I could, and I pray to God I never feel that emptiness again’
