Ronnie Ortiz-Magro reunites with his ex Jen Harley to celebrate fourth of July after her arrest for domestic violence
Right when you'd expect the two to keep their distance, Jersey Shore star Ronnie and his ex Jen Harley are putting on a united front. Then what was Jen's arrest all about?
'Jersey Shore' star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is sparking a lot of confusion about his volatile and tumultuous relationship with his ex-girlfriend Jen Harley. The couple's relationship has been nothing but controversial in the past. And now, 32-year-old Ortiz-Magro and 31-year-old Jen Harley appeared to have reunited while in New Jersey for the fourth of July only a day after the Clark County District Attorney’s Office confirmed there was "insufficient evidence" to prosecute her post an incident where she allegedly dragged her baby daddy with her car while their little baby Ariana Sky was also present in the car.
The reality tv personality decided to share a selfie of both him and Jen on his Instagram story. He had previously posted some pictures of himself traveling with the couple's three-month-old baby. The selfie of him and Jen comes as a surprise given how the couple was seen bickering and Jen being involved in a domestic violence battery case. Post Jen's arrest, she was released from the Clark County Detention Center on posting $3,000 bail.
According to a spokesperson for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, a suspicious vehicle call came in around 10:22 pm at night. It was reported that a male and a female seemed to be in some sort of a struggle over a vehicle. As reported by the callers, the male was supposedly bleeding and the car also had two flat tires. The officers on scene spoke with both Jen and Ronnie and shared that Ronnie had gotten out of the vehicle just as Jen was driving away with Ronnie holding on to the vehicle and getting dragged briefly.
Jen was arrested on one count of misdemeanor domestic battery and was believed to be the primary aggressor. Ronnie Ortiz-Magro seemed to be suffering from some minor injuries to his mouth and arm but was not in any need of medical assistance. The spokesperson shared that the couple's baby girl, Ariana Sky, was taken away from the scene by a friend.
Amidst all the drama and chaos with his former flame, Jen, Ronnie has decided to head home and take his baby girl, Ariana with him. He took to Instagram to share, "Someone’s excited to go to Jersey" and tagged himself and the little one at the Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport. "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," Ronnie said.
The couple had been in an on and off relationship for a long time and have had massive public fights in the past and at the time of their split, Ronnie shared, "I want to apologize to my family, friends, and fans. 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".
In the past, both Ronnie and Jen have accused each other of cheating and infidelity. At the time when Ronnie's cheating act with a mystery blonde came to be known, Jen confirmed in a post, "Don’t allow someone who talks to you in a snobby, condescending, rude manner get to you or intimidate you. That is a sign of an insecure person trying to appear superior to you. Arrogance and condescension is always a sign of weakness".
The pair even got into a physical fight while they were on Instagram Live. In the brief live stream that was seen and captured by fans and followers, Ronnie could be seen yelling, "Put your hands on me again! Put your f...king hands on me again, I dare you!" The clip was shared on Twitter and received a lot of backlash for their inappropriate behavior.
He even posted an Instagram story about Jen, "Note to self, can't turn a natural born HOE, into a HOUSEWIFE, if you find them in the gutter then leave them in the gutter." He eventually took to apologizing and wrote, "I want to apologize for earlier to my fans and especially to @tater_tot_kitty I acted out of my gut and not rationally. I should've never acted in such a manor [sic]. My deepest apologies [sic]."
While filming 'Jersey Shore' family vacation, Ronnie broke down in the confessional after seeing how in love his cast-mate Mike 'the situation' Sorrentino and his partner Lauren Pesce were. "After talking to Vinny’s mom and seeing the happiness that Mike has, I’m realizing I have to reevaluate my life, myself and my relationship. I want a family, I want to be happy, I want to be in Mike’s shoes. I want to propose. I want to have the feeling of more than just, ‘We’re together and we have a kid.’ I want more than that," Ronnie revealed.
"Everyone else goes and lives their lives, and they’re f—king happy, and I don’t have all the s—t they have. It’s just me. Who the f—k is the right person at this point?" he went on to add. The pair is trying their best to co-parent and not let their relationship get in the way but it looks like the relationship is way too damaged.
