'Jersey Shore' star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro's ex Jen Harley arrested on charges of domestic battery
Jersey Shore star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro's ex-girlfriend Jen Harley has been arrested on charges of domestic battery at the Clark County Detention Center after she got into a fight
Jersey Shore star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro's ex-girlfriend Jen Harley, who he broke up with recently, has been arrested on charges of domestic battery at the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas. The 31-year-old was arrested after she got into a fight while driving home from a barbecue.
According to TMZ, during the incident, Ortiz-Magro demanded that she pull the car over and let him out, but Harley chose to do nothing of the sort.
Harley then allegedly sped off when Ortiz-Magro got caught in his seat belt, in the process dragging her ex and injuring him while their infant daughter was in the car. Her bail, according to the publication, has been set at $3,000.
Ortiz-Magro and his ex-girlfriend broke things off sometime back after the couple welcomed their first child together, daughter Ariana Sky, on April 3. "I want to apologize to my family, friends and fans,” Ortiz-Magro said in a statement at the time. “This is a private matter that should have never been made public. I remain focused on my daughter and she is my No. 1 priority.”
Ever since their daughter was born, the duo has been constantly a part of the news for their numerous explosive arguments. Last month, it was reported that cops were called when the couple got into a heated argument at Planet Hollywood in the middle of Ortiz-Magro's shoot for the second season of 'Jersey Shore Family Vacation'.
In May this year, it was reported that the couple “just set each other off and fight constantly.” A source told People magazine, “It’s better they are apart, and they are slowly realizing that,” later adding, “It will be better for their daughter in the end.” Another source labeled the duo as being extremely "toxic together."
“When things are good, they’re good, but when they’re bad, they’re really bad,” the source said. “When you put two alphas in a room together, they’re going to clash.” Even in June, the duo was a part of another physical altercation, but this time, it also involved their innocent, two-month-old daughter.
“Ronnie and Jen have been fighting over their daughter,” a source said shortly after the incident. “Ronnie has been filming the show in Vegas the last couple of days and Jen wouldn’t tell him where their daughter is. She showed up to the hotel where they were filming. Jen lunged, spit and shoved Ronnie. Hotel security got involved, who then called the Las Vegas police department.”
However, Ortiz-Magro does not seem to be fazed too much about his dealings with his ex-girlfriend. Instead, he recently took time to speak more about his newborn daughter at a Jersey Shore press lunch in L.A. “Every day she’s changing so much,” he said. “Now, if I stick my tongue out, she’ll stick her tongue back out at me. It’s so cute. I’ve had a lot of blessings in my life, but she is the biggest blessing of all.”
