Dale DaBone: Tennis Star's OD Caused by His Return to Porn?

Jun 29, 2010 1:00 PM PST
LOS ANGELES — Tennis star Jennifer Capriati’s accidental overdose of prescription drugs could have been prompted by ex-boyfriend and porn star Dale DaBone’s return to adult, TMZ reported.

DaBone told the gossip site that after he called her Sunday night, she became “hysterical” over his decision to perform in "Batman XXX: A Porn Parody.”

The star dated Capriati from 2003-2009 and said that Capriati often gets depressed during the Wimbledon tournament because she misses playing tennis and blames her shortened career on injuries.

Her depression and DaBone's born again porn career could have been the combination that sparked her OD.

But DaBone told TMZ he didn’t think Capriati would try to kill herself.

Capriati is now recovering in a Florida hospital.

At post time DaBone's publicity company — Galaxy Publicity — stated, “ Mr. DaBone is saddened to hear about Ms.Capriati, and is very concerned, but that is all we can say now until he makes an official statement.”

That statement is due tomorrow morning.
