Look at these lovebirds go! JWoww — a.k.a Jenni Farley — and her boyfriend, Zack Clayton Carpinello, made their red carpet debut as a couple at the 2019 CMT Music Awards on June 5. While the duo looked phenomenal on the red carpet, it was during the afterparty that they really put on a show.
An eyewitness tells In Touch exclusively that over at the Cannery Ballroom, while JWoww, 33, was “buried in her phone,” Zack, 24, was “rubbing her legs and kissing her face.” At one point, Zack even went to get her tacos and drinks. That’s true love right there! He was also seen whispering in her ear, and according to the insider, seemed “really into it” and Jenni appeared “happy.”
In Touch first broke the identity of the Jersey Shore star’s beau back in April. Jenni revealed she was seeing a new man while appearing with her costar Snooki, a.k.a. Nicole Polizzi, and her other friend, Joey Camasta, during a live taping of their podcast “It’s Happening with Snooki & Joey.”
Zack is a professional wrestler and goes by the title of Zack Clayton in his work. Plus, he also makes wrestling merch and shirts. Interestingly enough, Jenni’s new man was actually at her 2015 wedding to her estranged husband, Roger Mathews. Eagle-eyed fans discovered Zack uploaded a snap from the wedding reception on Instagram back in 2016.
As odd as that might seem, it makes sense if you know that Jenni’s ex-husband, Roger, once revealed that the new guy in her life is a “good friend of her little brother.” What better way to meet someone than through friends and family, right?
The CMT Awards afterparty was not the first time JWoww and her boyfriend have shown off their new love. They became “Instagram official” on April 27, when the Jersey Shore mama shared a few videos of the couple laughing together and listening to “Rapper’s Delight” by Sugarhill Gang as they set off on a road trip for Universal Studios. Keep it up, you crazy kids!
