Porn star Christy Mack has shared the story of the horrific beating she allegedly endured at the hands of her ex-boyfriend and MMA fighter Jon Koppenhaver, better known as War Machine.

The couple broke up in May, but on Friday, Aug. 8, Koppenhaver arrived at Mack's Las Vegas, Nevada, home completely unannounced, and when he found her with a male friend he flew into a rage and assaulted both of them.

Mack had to be hospitalized for her injuries, which include 18 broken bones in her face, a fractured rib, a badly injured leg, several lesions from a knife — which Koppenhaver got from her kitchen during the altercation — and a ruptured liver.

The adult entertainer posted photos on Aug. 11, via Twitter, which show her in a hospital bed recovering from severe injuries. She also shared an emotional statement that explained how she was violently attacked, and that she truly believed that she was going to die during the incident.
