Jen Harley Blasts Jersey Shore's Ronnie Ortiz-Magro for Allegedly Canceling Valentine's Day Plans
In a since-deleted Instagram Story on Wednesday, Harley slammed Ortiz-Magro — with whom she shares 10-month-old daughter Ariana Sky — for allegedly choosing to be on a television show rather than celebrate the romantic holiday with her.
“I’m sorry but if you go away for 6 weeks to become a better boyfriend, father, person, etc to work on your family but you choose to cancel all of our plans on Valentine’s Day so you can appear on a dating show Bc you Need the money that bad over your family,” she wrote, according to a screenshot captured by E! News, “your[sic] a joke .. how did you better anything?? You continue to put us back in the same position by doing the same things that put us there in the first place.”
Ortiz-Magro has not yet responded on social media to her allegations. It’s unclear to what show Harley is referring; though his Jersey Shore costars Pauly “DJ Pauly D” Delvecchio and Vinny Guadagnino recently landed their own reality series, Double Shot at Love With DJ Pauly D & Vinny, set to premiere later this year on MTV.
Although she won’t be spending Valentines Day with Ortiz-Magro, she does have some “amazing” plans in store.
“If any of my friends don’t have a date I have an AMAZING day planned you can join me,” she wrote on her Instagram Story alongside pink heart and red lip emojis. “I was alone last vday too. So I’m really excited to do something special this year.”
On Dec. 31, the volatile duo split following an alleged violent altercation during a New Year’s Eve Party. Us Weekly later shared photos allegedly depicting Ortiz-Magro’s injuries, revealing a gash on his forehead and swollen nose, as well as a bloodied lip.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department confirmed to PEOPLE that Ortiz-Magro had filed a battery domestic violence report against Harley. According to the spokesperson, Ortiz-Magro alleged the battery occurred on Dec. 31, 2018 at 11:43 p.m.
A source told PEOPLE the pair allegedly got into a heated argument while at the Las Vegas strip club Hustler.
“She was mad about something she saw on his phone [and] she freaked out,” said the source, who claimed Harley then allegedly “lunged” at Ortiz-Magro as he tried to leave the club.
“She was restrained by his friend, but when he was walking out she took an ashtray from the table and threw it at his head, busting his nose and lip,” the source said.
Representatives for the former couple did not responded to PEOPLE’s requests for comment.
Harley returned home that night to find her home had allegedly been ransacked. She reportedly told authorities she believes Ortiz-Magro broke in. However, the source close to Ortiz-Magro claimed the reality star never broke in, but “busted a table while he was there because they were fighting.”
The source said Ortiz-Magro wants to “protect his daughter.”
A spokesperson for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department confirmed to PEOPLE that patrol officers responded to the residence at about 2:15 a.m. on Jan. 1 for a report of a possible burglary and destruction of property.
According to the spokesperson, upon arrival, officers learned that the victim had an argument with her boyfriend at a club prior to her getting home, and officers observed that several items in the home were damaged including a television and picture frames.
Officers could not locate any forced entry, and it is unknown if Ortiz-Magro is the suspect, according to the spokesperson. The case remains under investigation.
