Less than a month after the birth of their daughter, Jersey Shore star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro got into a messy fight with his girlfriend Jen Harley over the weekend when the 32-year-old reality star accused her of keeping "sex videos" of her ex.
The feud began Sunday afternoon after Ronnie took to his Instagram Stories to vent about his inability to "turn a natural born HOE, into a HOUSEWIFE."
"if you find them in the gutter then leave them in the gutter Not all people can be saved when they are so far gone. All you can say you did ur best and keep it moving,” he wrote, adding the hashtags #Facts and #YeahhhhhhBuddyyyy.
Jen swiftly fired back, telling her followers in her own Instagram Story that one "can't turn a coke head into a father!"
Ronnie responded by asking his followers to vote in a poll: "If your significant other keeps sex videos of their ex," he wrote, "shouldn’t they show enough respect to delete them, esp after being in a new relationship for over a year? #GiveMeYourThoughts.”
Ronnie then went on to post screenshots of supportive messages from fans, to which Jen responded with a screenshot of her own in which Ron appears to blackmail her:
That last post prompted Ronnie to scrub his own Instagram Story and issue an apology later Sunday evening: “I want to apologize for earlier to my fans, and especially @tater_tot_kitty,” he wrote — though he still had more to get off his chest.
After deleting his apology, Ronnie then shared a screenshot of a conversation he had several months ago with a friend who seemingly admits to hooking up with Jen.
“After she went to the pool the other day and she wouldn’t answer your calls we were f*cking on the taco float in the back yard, look at her pics on her phone," the unidentified friend told Rahhhn. "She took a bunch, that’s why she didn’t answer. She was showing me your text, asking what’s wrong cuz she called you 5 times earlier. How would I know all that?”
In a pair of follow-up messages, the friend called Jen a "worthless c*m dumpster" and shared an alleged photo of her with another man:
Jen later clapped back (again) on her own Story, bringing up the recent episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation in which Ron seemingly cheats on her with a random woman he'd met at a bar:
Ron had told People recently that he and Jen were "in talks" about getting married "down the line," but were focused on their daughter — Ariana Sky, born April 3 — for the time being. It's safe to assume that those plans were upended after the recent Family Vacation episodes in which Ronnie not only appeared to cheat on then-pregnant Jen, as mentioned, but also admitted that he was still in love with his ex, former Jersey Shore star Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola.
"I think I just miss the feeling of security 'cause that's what she [Sami] gave," Ron told his costar Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi during the episode, adding that he doesn't "trust" Jen.
Let's hope they can come to some sort of an agreement, at least for the sake of their little girl. Be sure to tune in to Jersey Shore: Family Vacation on MTV every Thursday night at 8/7c to see if their relationship is able to survive this ongoing saga.
