Jenna Jameson has announced plans to return to porn, five years after officially quitting the industry that made her famous.

According to TMZ, the former porn queen -- arguably the most recognizable adult star in the world -- is returning to skin flicks in order to support her family, which includes twin boys with ex-boyfriend and former UFC champ Tito Ortiz.

“My motivation is taking care of my family and having fun and meeting all my fans,” she told a TMZ cameraman yesterday. Jameson publicly quit the porn industry some five years ago. “I'll never, ever, ever spread my legs again in this industry. Ever,” she said onstage at the Adult Video News (AVN) Awards in 2008.

At the time, things were looking up for Jenna Jameson. According to Business Insider, she had a reported net worth of $30 million from selling her own brand of sex toys, and from the sale of her website, ClubJenna, to Playboy for an undisclosed sum in 2006. The retired porn star also made numerous mainstream TV, movie, radio and talk show appearances, her autobiography, “How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale,” spent six weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and she quickly became pregnant with twins by Tito Ortiz.

"I've had a lot of people question me saying, 'Why haven't you made a comeback? It'd be easy for you to make multi-millions off of one or two scenes,'" she said during a segment on “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” earlier this year. "And to be honest, I made a promise to my children when they were in my tummy that there is no way I would ever, ever, ever go back."

It appears she is set to break that promise by announcing her return to porn. As Jezebel reports, it’s been a rough few years for Jameson. In addition to losing custody of her twin sons amid a mess split from Tito Ortiz where he accused her of being addicted to Oxycontin, she was arrested for DUI in May 2012. This past summer, she lost her Hollywood Hills mansion to foreclosure. During a publicity tour for her new erotic novel “Sugar” last month, she gave several television and radio interviews in which she exhibited bizarre behavior and slurred speech.

According to the Daily Mail, Jameson was also arrested in April of this year for battery after assaulting her assistant with a brass knuckle iPhone case.

As Jezebel points out, Jameson recently made a partial return to the porn industry as a webcam model. She strips and performs sex acts online in exchange for money. She announced her return to making porn films during a webcam show.
