CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Comeback cocksman Dale DaBone is blaming himself for the prescription drug overdose tennis star Jennifer Capriati suffered Sunday. At least in part.

In a report from TMZ, DaBone said that Capriati was prone to depression during major tennis matches—and Sunday, Wimbledon was taking place. DaBone would know this about Capriati because he dated her from 2003 to 2009, during which time he stopped performing in porn. And he believes that his recent decision to get back into the game (he just made his big return in Vivid Entertainment's Batman XXX: A Porn Parody) played a substantial role in pushing her over the edge.

DaBone spoke at length about his relationship with Capriati several weeks ago in an exclusive interview with AVN Live, in which he revealed that his decision to leave the business was largely due to his blossoming romance with her, and that his porn past was ultimately what caused that romance to crumble.

"This is a life sentence," DaBone said in the interview. "It's a bed that we made that we have to lay in."
