Jenni 'JWoww' Farley Reveals She's Dating a 24-Year-Old Man amid Divorce from Roger Mathews
The Jersey Shore star filed for divorce in September after almost three years of marriage
Jenni “JWoww” Farley is off the market!
During a live appearance Wednesday on Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Joey Camasta’s podcast, It’s Happening with Snooki & Joey, the Jersey Shore star, 34, confirmed she has moved on from estranged husband Roger Mathews and is currently dating a 24-year-old man.
When asked what the mystery man’s name is, Farley responded, “24,” according to The Asbury Park Press. “We’re filming Jersey Shore right now and we nicknamed him ’24.'”
“He’s very handsome, by the way,” added Polizzi, 31. “Jenni has been going through some s— but I’ve never seen this girl more happier and more herself than this moment right now.”
Later that day, the reality star took to Instagram to share just how happy she is.
“Currently missing someone right now,” she said in a video on her Instagram Story alongside pal AJ. “A.J.’s missing some one right now, too. But I’m, like, really, really missing someone right now. So we’re being each other’s support system. He’s pretending to be my ’24.’ He’s pretending to be my ’24’ and straight, while I’m missing my ’24.'”
She also posted an intimate photo of her and ’24’ in bed, though she didn’t reveal his face.
In response to the news, Mathews told the New York Post‘s Page Six he’s “very happy” for his ex.
Earlier this month, rumors of Farley dating someone new began circulating after she posted photos of herself enjoying a weekend with a mystery man.
“She has moved on,” her rep confirmed to PEOPLE at the time.
Farley filed for divorce from Mathews in September after almost three years of marriage. Though they continued to spend time together as a family in the months that followed, even celebrating their three-year wedding anniversary in October, the relationship took a downward turn in December, when Farley filed for a restraining order against him after the two got into an argument.
A month later, she accused Mathews of physical and emotional abuse in a lengthy statement shared on her personal website. She also released footage that allegedly showed Mathews attacking her. Mathews denied the allegations.
In an exclusive statement to PEOPLE at the time, Farley said she decided to speak out against Mathews for the sake of their kids.
“In light of the recent accusations, I would like to clarify one point: I did not post the message to Roger to cause him any upset,” she said. “My intention was to protect our children and to liberate myself from all of the pain I had endured for so many years, to finally be free from the abuse and now look into the future more positively for the sake of the kids.”
