She thinks she was the victim of a hate crime...
E! News spoke with post-op transsexual porn actress Britney Markham about her alleged attack at the hands of former boss Jenna Jameson, who she has filed a restraining order against. Jameson was arrested on suspicion of battery last weekend.
The Orange County District Attorney's Office said they would not go after Jameson due to a lack of evidence.
Her lawyer, Adam Krolikowski, said: "I've got a call in to the district attorney to discuss that. We don't know if he's aware of the three witnesses and exactly what they saw and heard. If the D.A. won't prosecute criminally, then we'll be forced to seek justice civilly."
Markham added: "They aren't taking me seriously because I'm a transsexual woman. The things she was saying to me is a hate crime, it's very wrong. They need to do something about it."
In the petition for a temporary restraining order, Markham named five witnesses by first name only who she says saw Jameson "yelling and telling me to hurry the f--k up" while she was trying to make an appointment for her at a hair salon Saturday night. Markham started working as Jameson's assistant in January.
She said: "When we got to the car, I was in the driver seat and she was in the passenger seat, she used her brass knuckle iPhone case to punch me in the stomach and back, It felt like she was punching me with metal. After the police were called, she said, 'I'll f--king kill you.' I took that as a threat that she would cause me harm with a weapon. I know she possesses weapons."
After the incident, Jameson tweeted (then deleted): "Wow just got robbed by a friend @britneymarkham she accused me of gusting her, and broke into my home and took everything."
Markham took a screen capture of the tweet and put it on her Instagram, then replied: "NOT TRUE! How could u say that u attacked me and im@in the hospital because of u."
She added that she vomited blood for three days after the attack. She added: "I wasn't feeling well and went to my doctor. She told me I wasn't OK and referred me to Orange Coast Memorial Hospital. The doctor told me the punches had caused severe bruising to my spleen and organs."
Her petition requests that she get back whatever personal items of hers that are in Jameson's possession and that Jameson pay her $2,500 for attorney fees.
She said: "She was calling me a man...She was calling me a he-she. I haven't been insulted like that since high school."
When asked about the claim that she stole from Jameson's house after the attack, she replied: "That is a lie. My father taught us that nothing is worse than stealing, that we have no reason to steal. I did not steal anything. I just wanted to grab my things and leave."
Police then showed up to Jameson's house as she was yelling at Markham.
Markham said: "My anxiety has gotten so much worse, my self-esteem has gone down. I cry to my lawyer every day. I've had panic attacks. I have random people come up and say things to me. [Jameson's] supporters are attacking me online. Luckily, I have friends around me supporting me."
