The ex-husband of former adult film star Jenna Jameson claims a Scottsdale private school will not let his son attend because of his past.
Jay Grdina was married to Jenna Jameson for four years before they divorced in 2006. During that time, they were both involved in the adult film business.
After that he left the business, re-married, and had two children, now the school is refusing to let one of those children in.
Scottsdale Christian Academy started school last week, but 5-year-old Jayden already missed his first day of kindergarten. His family says the day before; they got a letter from the school telling them he was not welcome because of his father's past in the porn industry.
The family says they started the application nearly a year ago in December and had no issues with the school. After multiple interviews their son was accepted, but then days before school was to start they got an e-mail saying their son couldn't attend, because of Grdina's family business. The letter said it violated the schools rules.
Currently, Grdina runs an energy drink company; it's advertised as a drink to prevent hangovers. Before that, he ran a successful porn company with his ex-wife Jenna Jameson. The ex-couple reportedly sold the company to Playboy for 25 million dollars.
"I didn't think it would be an issue, I had three nephews attend the school, and two that graduated with top honors so I really didn't think it would be an issue, especially with my son. I mean we went through the full interview process, we started in December of last year I mean they had plenty of time to do their background research," said Jay Grdina.
FOX 10 asked the school for comment, but as it is a holiday weekend, no one replied by the time of this broadcast. The family says they plan to sue.
