Who to believe? After Ronnie Ortiz-Magro was arrested on October 4, following an alleged domestic violence incident, his baby mama, Jen Harley, showed off some mysterious bruises on her body. However, Ronnie’s costar and friend Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi isn’t buying what she’s selling. Scroll through the gallery below to get all the details.
“I feel like she went out intentionally to get a photo of her,” the 31-year-old mama said during her podcast, “It’s Happening With Snooki & Joey,” on Thursday, October 10, about Jen’s skimpy outfit. “You don’t have to be wearing a tank top, showing your bruises and the bruise on your leg. She’s wearing booty shorts to show it off.”
Snooki continued to explain why she thinks Jen, 32, was showing off her skin on purpose. “Like, girl, you can go out with your daughter and have lunch, but cover those up so it’s not a thing,” she added. “She wants it to be a thing. She wants to show off her bruises. We don’t know how she got the bruises.”
“Yes, listen, this whole situation is really bizarre. It really is,” the 37-year-old said. “There are a lot of opinions. There is a long list of bizarre crazy things that have happened. I don’t know. At this particular point, I am just going to say, I am going to pray for him, Jen, the baby, his future.”
“At first, I was a bit stern,” Mike admitted. “I was like, ‘Listen, wake the f—k up and call me. We are worried.’ Then, he didn’t answer back, I went with a little softer approach, ‘I am here for you.’”
“There are three sides to a story — his side, her side and the truth. I don’t really know what happened, but we have to speak to him first to get his truth, and then we can guide him going forward and put these mistakes behind,” Mike said.
The Jersey Shore star revealed he went to rehab earlier this year, but it seems like he is not getting any better after he got in a “physical altercation” with Jen — whom he shares his daughter, Ariana Sky, with — on October 4.
On October 5, Ronnie’s lawyer released a statement about what happened. “The reporting of the alleged incident relating to Ronnie Magro this morning is based upon pure speculation and innuendo,” lawyer Scott E. Leemon said in a statement obtained by In Touch. “We are currently conducting our own investigation and will have no further comment until that has been concluded.”
Additionally, the mom of one honored her boyfriend on National Boyfriend Day. “For National Boyfriend Day, I got some new bling. #nationalboyfriendday,” she captioned a video of herself wearing new jewelry seemingly gifted to her by Ronnie.
Angelina Pivarnick — Ronnie’s costar on Jersey Shore — even gave an update on where things stood with Ronnie and Jen recently. “I know right now he’s excited and happy that they’re doing so well, and he’s really just living for his daughter and his daughter. Oh my God, she’s so cute,” she told In Touch exclusively in July. “I love that little baby. I think they’re in a really good place, and I’m really happy for them.”
