Christy Mack Releases Statement and Photos from Hospital Bed

LAS VEGAS—Adult performer Christy Mack reportedly released a statement and graphic pictures of herself in a hospital bed, claiming she suffered the severe injuries at the hand of former boyfriend War Machine aka Jonathan Koppenhaver. AVN's earlier story about the incident can be seen here.

In the meantime, Koppenhaver—who is being sought for questioning by Las Vegas police—is not revealing his whereabouts, but apparently continues to tweet to his followers, at times addressing Mack directly.

The following was released on Mack’s Twitter account earlier today as a photo. Also posted were graphic photos of Mack and her injuries.

At about 2 a.m. 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 area such as my hand, ear, and head. He also sawed much of my hair off with this dull knife. After some time, the knife broke off of the handle and continued to threaten me with the blade. I believed I was going to die. He has beaten me many times before, but never this badly. He took my phone and canceled all of my plans for the following week to make sure no one would worry about my whereabouts. He told me he was going to rape me, but was disappointed in himself when he could not get card. After another hit or two, he left me on the floor bleeding and shaking, holding my side from the pain in my rib. He left the room and went to the kitchen where I could hear him ruffling through my drawers. Assuming he was finding a sharper, more stable knife to end my life, I ran out my back door, shutting it behind me so the dogs didn’t run inside to tip him off. I hopped the fence to the golf course behind my house and ran to a neighboring house. Naked and afraid he would catch me, I kept running through the neighborhood knocking on doors. Finally one answered and I was brought to the hospital and treated for my injuries.

I would like to thank everyone for their support through this rough time. I am healing fast and well, and I appreciate all of the prayers and visits I have received over the past few days. After many months of fear and pressure to keep this man happy, although I fear for my life, I feel that I can no longer put myself in this situation. The cheating by him nearly every day, and almost weekly abuse is now more than I can stand. There is a $10k reward for the capture of Jonathan Koppenhaver at this time. Please report any information to your local police.

Thank you,

-Christy Mack


On War Machine’s Twitter account, which was updated Sunday night, tweets appear to paint a picture that he is “not a bad guy,” but rather “cursed.”

“I can't believe this...I must be cursed,” reads a tweet from Aug. 8. That message was followed by three more tweets on Aug. 9, which read, “@ChristyMack I love you and hope you're okay. I came him early to surprise you and help you set up for your convention. I can't believe,” “@ChristyMack what I found and can't believe what happened. All I wanted was to surprise you and help and do something this..” and “@ChristyMack I'm so heart all ways. I will always love you.”

Four more tweets were posted to War Machine’s account within the past 24 hours:

@ChristyMack I just wanted to see your face when I surprised you with the ring ...this is a nightmare. You're in my thoughts.”

“I'm not a bad guy, I went to surprise my gf, help her set up her show and to give her an engagement ring and ended up fighting for my life.”

“The cops will never give me fair play, never believe me. Still deciding what to do but at the end of the day it's all just heart breaking.”

“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.”

AVN will continue to post details as they become available.
