Julie James England (above with Jesse on her wedding day) tells TMZ her father Larry -- who denied the abuse allegations Jesse made on "Nightline" -- was "very abusive to my mom and us when we were growing up."
Jesse claims he went to rehab not just for sex addiction, but anger management, and childhood abuse issues as well. In the interview Jesse went on to claim his father beat him and broke his arm when he was seven.
As for his broken arm -- Julie says Larry forced 7-year-old Jesse to jump over a fence to retrieve a lost ball from a neighbor's yard one night.
She claims her father was screaming at Jesse the whole time and that, as a result, Jesse ended up falling off the fence and breaking his arm.
Despite all that's happened, Julie says she's proud of her brother because she feels Jesse's finally "on the mend."

Lindsay Lohan -- Sobriety Down to a Tea
Lindsay Lohan was drinking heavily during her 10-hour blondification treatment yesterday in a West Hollywood salon -- and we're told her beverage of choice was some weird, fizzy Chinese tea.
Sources tell TMZ, Lindsay was pounding Kombucha -- a fermented tea that claims several health benefits -- while she got her hair did yesterday at Andy Lecompte Salon in WeHo.
And this is interesting ... due to the fermentation, the tea contains a trace amount of alcohol -- less than 0.5%.
We're told she emerged ten hours later -- and all she could talk about while she was there was some mystery actor she met at Cannes ... with whom she's allegedly obsessed.
So far, the SCRAM alarm remains silent.
UPDATE: TMZ just spoke to the guy behind Kombucha tea, GT Dave, who claims the product can help people kick habits of alcohol, coffee and junk food by "restoring healthy balance to the body." So there.
