Jesse James' Dad Larry: Jesse Is Lying About Child Abuse (VIDEO)

Jesse James claimed in his Nightline interview that his dad Larry abused him when he was a child, and the abuse turned him into a womanizer and cheater.

"I was a terrorized kid," Jesse said. "I was petrified of my dad ... It wasn't so much getting the shit beat out of me or getting my arm broken or getting kicked or whatever or punched, it was the in-between time. It was the fear of that happening again."

Now Larry tells Radaronline.com that Jesse's story is nothing but a lie.

"None of it is true," Larry said. "My kids were my whole life. I would never ever hurt any one of them. I would have died before I would have hurt them."

Larry also explained how Jesse broke him arm.

"Just to show off...he dove over the fence, landed on the ground, and broke his arm," he said. "He neglected to say that I was right there, picked him up, lifted him over the fence and I never let go of him until his hand was in a cast. I even had them cut his shirt off him at the hospital so I didn't have to let go of his arm."

Larry claims his son fabricated stories of a tragic childhood in order to boost his tough guy image.

"I think he made these allegations because he's told so many lies for so many years about his childhood," he said. "He was a fantastic kid, we did everything together. He was the apple of my eye."

Larry has previously talked about his son's Nazi obsession.
