Christy Mack Releases Statement, Photos Following Attack


Adult film actress Christy Mack released a statement along with photos documenting the beating she sustained at the hands of her ex-boyfriend, MMA fighter War Machine.

War Machine (aka Jonathan Koppenhaver) is currently wanted by police in connection to the attack, which occurred at Mack’s home on Friday night. According to police, he beat Mack and an unidentified third party so severely they both had to be hospitalized.

On Monday, Mack released photos of her injury along with a statement about the incident:

Here is part of Mack’s account, via her Twitter account:

about 2 am Friday morning, Jon Koppenhaver arrived unannounced to my home in Las Vegas, NV, after he broke up with me in May, he moved out of my house and back to San Diego. When he arrived, he found myself and one other fully clothed and unarmed in the house. Without a single word spoken, he began beating my friend; once he was finished, he sent my friend away and turned his attention to me. He made me undress and shower in front of him, then dragged me out and beat my face. I have no recollection of how many times I was hit, I just know my injuries that resulted from my beating. My injuries include 18 broken bones around my eyes, my nose is broken in 2 places, I am missing teeth and several more are broken. I am unable to chew, or see out of my left eye. My speach is slurred from my swelling and lack of teeth. I have a fractured rib and severely ruptured liver from a kick to my side. My leg is so badly injured I have not been able to walk on my own. I also attained several lesions from a knife he got from my kitchen. He pushed the knife into me in some areas such as my hand, ear, and head. He also sawed much of my hair off with this dull knife.

She said he threatened to rape her and continued to threaten her with the knife. “I believed I was going to die,” she wrote. “He took my phone and canceled all of my plans for the following week to make sure no one could worry about my whereabouts.” When he went to go search for another knife, she bolted from the home, knocking on her neighbors’ doors until she found someone to help.

Mack also stated it was not the first time Koppenhaver beat her. Our colleagues over at Deadspin have a good roundup of his history:

Machine has a history of assault. He attacked a former girlfriend at a porn industry party back in 2009, and has served time in jail for a felony assault in 2010, among other arrests. He also tweeted that he raped Mack last year before he and Mack claimed it was only a joke.

Koppenhaver has been tweeting since the attack took place, mostly to victim blame and tell people he’s running from the cops because they won’t give him a fair shake. According to TMZ, his friends and family said he is “delusional” about his relationship with Mack. His twitter certainly is not helping thoughts to the contrary:

I only wish that man hadn’t been there and that Christy & I would behappily engaged.I don’t know y I’m so cursed.One day truth will come out
