Cops were previously called to her home in November 2023 after she and Vinny got into a domestic altercation. While the police report stated that Angelina called 911, she declined to press charges once authorities arrived at her home.

“This matter is now closed,” Leonard told Page Six after the MTV personality decided not to press charges. “Moving forward, Angelina would ask for privacy as it pertains to her personal life.”

Meanwhile, Vinny’s lawyer, Elizabeth Rozin-Golinder, explained the couple continued living together after the altercation. “My client and Ms. Pivarnick are still engaged and are still residing together. Mr. Tortorella denies any act of impropriety that would warrant police involvement and denies any act of domestic violence occurred,” she said at the time.
