Jennifer Capriati's Ex -- 'Perfect Storm' Caused OD

6/29/2010 4:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jennifer Capriati's ex-boyfriend says he believes two big things went down in her life that caused her to accidentally OD on prescription drugs -- his return to porn and her depression over tennis.

Dale DaBone dated Jen from 2003-2009 -- if DaBone sounds like a porn star name ... that's because it is -- and DaBone has 443 films under DaBelt.

DaBone claims Jen got horribly depressed every time a grand slam event went down. Interestingly, the OD occurred Sunday, during the time Wimbledon was on. Jen would always complain she was forced out of tennis because of injuries and began taking prescription meds.

But there's something else that DaBone says sent Jen on a downward spiral -- his recent return to porn ... something Jen despised. DaBone signed on with Vivid Entertainment to star in "Batman XXX: A Porn Parody."

DaBone tells TMZ after Jen OD'd, he called her in the hospital Sunday night and she was "hysterical" over his decision to return to XXX films.

But DaBone says he doesn't believe Jen would try and kill herself.

True or not, he's using her personal tragedy to get his name in the news. Its free publicity for the return to his "career." What a low life.

I can't believe no one is mentioning how sexy this guy is, regardless if you think he's a douche or not. I'll take hot sex with DaBone than with overrated Christiano any day.

What a douche - some chicks in love with you and you're going to "return" to porn. Kick this loser to the curb Jen and find your self esteem.

Funny, Dale DaBone (Adult Industry) is now endorsing Hot Rawks a healthy organic libido supplement and Jen (Pro Tennis Player) is Overdosing on Prescription Meds. What is the irony in that?

It appears that she has the problem, not Dale! He seems to have it together (despite the fact he has sex for a living, but she apparently knew that about him and didn't care since she dated him for 6 years anyway)
I feel sorry for Jennifer, she has fallen into the world of medicating herself just like 90% of the rest of celebs out there.

This guy isn't just any porn star. He is actually the leading role as "Big" in Dreamzone's Sex and The city porn!! That is a pretty big (no pun intended) deal. That would definitely drive any girl nuts I think.

I know dale and jen personally.
Here are the facts tmz.
Dale only dated her for about a year and it was on and off.
He is a major bi-polar guy and a hardcore drug addict.
He never signed with vivid,they merely contracted him to do a batman parody.He also has no money and about two months ago was sleeping on my friends couch.To make matters worse for himself he contacted tmz to publish what he believes happened.When Jen wants nothing to do with him .How do i know all these facts because i know dale personally and he owns the two pictures published above and used them to promote his garbage porno movie in an attempt to try to revamp his career. Its low but what can you expect.Just to put him on blast i want everyone to know dale is broke and has never filed taxes.I hope tmz gave him some cash because hes going to need to pay the IRS and people that let him sleep on the couch!

There is no such thing as an accidental overdose. I'll say it done on purpose. Doctor write's a prescription with instructions, you get the prescription filled and the instructions are taped to the bottle. If you the patient don't follow those instructions, then it is you the patient who took the incorrect dosage, therefore creating the overdose. It's so simple, figure it out. Doctor's don't write prescriptions with instructions that say take as many as you want, whenever you want, all day everyday.

"Accidental" is mis-used in this story and every other story where a person od's. The patient makes the decision, over riding the doctor's instructions and takes more than what is prescribed. No sympathy here for her or any other drug abuser !!
