Devon wrote this on her Myspace blog:
Wednesday, May 06, 2009 – YES, IT IS TRUE…
For everyone who has asked over the last 2 years, YES, it is indeed TRUE, the rumors of what occored during the shooting of Devon does Baja, was by far the WORST experience imaginable….(take a look @ the track records of some of the performers they continue 2 promote…such as, convicted, imprisoned, sex offenders.)
The rumors were that i was raped, by jack venice, who is now serving life in prison 4 raping a collage girl, in i think, sandiego, n also that there was very severe physical, n verball abouse, all of wich is indeed true. even the owners of the company shanes world, new about it, yet did nothing….that would b y i never did another movie 4 shanes world. if u get a chance, check out their site, they r still promting jack venice, who has been convicted of rape, n is now serving a life sentance. will not be up 4 paroll 4 at least 10 years….so karma really is a bitch, cuz it came back around n got that piece of shit! xoxo, Devon.
The CEO of Shane’s World has now released this statement:
Shane’s World has read the false and unfortunate defamatory posting of Devon as relates to the alleged actions of Jack Venice. Shane’s World categorically denies the statements made by Devon, and intends to vigorously pursue all legal avenues to redress Devon’s improper and defamatory statements.
While it is not the custom or practice of Shane’s World to comment upon such matters, given the severity of the allegations Shane’s World is compelled to respond in this instance.
First, at no time whatsoever did Devon ever report, state or even suggest that she was physically or sexually assaulted at any time by Mr. Venice. This is the first suggestion of such inappropriate conduct.
One would think that Devon would have reported the matter to law enforcement, but she glaringly fails to make any mention of doing so. Shane’s World can only assume that Devon is attempting to malign Shane’s World’s reputation in retaliation for her own misgivings and decline in her career.

Jack Venice was convicted of second-degree rape and first-degree burglary and will be eligible for parole in nine years after attacking a sleeping college student.
Most rape victims never go to the police and report their rapes or tell anyone else for that matter. And this is porn. When a female performer says she’s been raped on set, off set, in a studio, or in someone’s office, most everyone comes out saying “whores lie” (though that would make Jack Venice a lying whore too, right). Then you have the clowns that say how can a porn star be raped when she has sex for a living. Many might also say why didn’t she come out during his trial. If she did, many would assume she was taking advantage of the situation and wanted publicity. But these rumors have been around for two years and Devon did leave Shane’s World soon after.
Many of the female porn stars are victims of child & teen rape and incest. Usually nothing was done to their rapists in those cases and their own families turned a blind eye. So you have women already conditioned to be quiet and not say what was done to them because they will be blamed and/or not believed.
Porn is run by “men” and they support their own. Many of the male performers and male agents and male studio heads are rapists and pedophiles. So another female porn star saying she was raped by one of their own won’t be taken seriously.
You know what Jack Venice did but you don’t care because it could cost you in civil court. And shut the fuck up about planning on taking legal action against Devon. You won’t be suing anyone because all the other women raped on your sets will start to come out and cost you more so in the end. You never saw Vivid’s Bill Asher suing Stefani Morgan when she made very public her very detailed allegations against him. So none of you will be suing the woman whose live you’ve made a living hell.
You need these women but treat them worse than serial killers. What you have done to Devon and the other women in porn will come back and bite you in the ass one day. Look at what’s about to happen to Derek Hay at LA Direct. It’s called KARMA.
