Jenni “JWoww” Farley has released footage that allegedly shows her estranged husband Roger Mathews attacking her.

In the startling clip, shared to Farley’s website on Wednesday, a man, who appears to be Mathews, can be seen shoving a woman, presumably Farley, to the ground in the kitchen of a home.

The two then exchanged a number of harsh words before going their separate ways.

Farley, 32, also included clips that show herself and Mathews arguing in front of their 2-year-old son Greyson Valor. She also attached screen grabs of text messages between a nanny and herself regarding Mathews.

Mathews did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

In addition, Farley released a statement addressed to Mathews regarding their impending divorce for the first time.

“I have spent the last few months trying to protect our children from public humiliation, because as parents, WE ARE SUPPOSED TO PROTECT THEM,” Farley began in reference to the former couple’s two children: son Greyson and daughter Meilani Alexandra, 4.

“I wanted to handle this out of the spotlight because our silence is their greater good. Even when you tried to disgrace my name, make false accusations and even point-blank lie… I still remained silent as challenging as it was… why? Because, greater good.”

“I can no longer sit idly by while you mistreat and malign me in such an egregious manner,” Farley continued.

“You have presented yourself to the public as a praiseworthy father and a husband who has been suffering by my alleged actions and behavior,” Farley wrote.

The Jersey Shore star, who married Mathews in 2015 after nearly five years together, went on to allege that what Mathews presents on social media is a lie.

“Your postings are consumed with inaccuracies, false statements, self-serving comments, outright misrepresentations and blatant lies,” Farley continued.

Farley then referenced an alleged incident in which Mathews allegedly gave Greyson, who is highly allergic to gluten and dairy, pizza.

“When I asked you about the food situation, you chose to berate me instead of acknowledging that Greyson’s health is of paramount concern,” Farley wrote.

“You hurt the children and you hurt me,” Farley continued. “When will it end?”

Farley then accused Mathews of teaming up with her ex-boyfriend Thomas Lippolis to extort money from her.

Lippolis was arrested in December and charged with third-degree extortion, the Tom’s River Police Department in New Jersey confirmed in a press release.

Farley claimed that Lippolis had attempted to extort $25,000 from her “in exchange for not divulging secrets to the media,” according to the press release.

“It is unfathomable to me that because of you proactively contacting an ex-boyfriend of mine to team up against me, he was arrested for trying to extort money from me,” Farley alleged in her statement today.

“You didn’t stop there though. You persisted to try to take me down. You knew that another ex from my college years brutally beat me so badly that I was hospitalized.”

Farley included a copy of 2008 protection order against the ex-boyfriend, whose name was blacked out.

“He was incarcerated for the violent acts against me,” Farley continued.

“When your own acts of domestic violence against me were questioned, you chose to reach out to this unspeakable person in order to intimidate me,” Farley alleged.

The reality star is also accusing Mathews of having a video of her that he intends to use as blackmail against her after Farley filed a restraining order.

Farley filed the restraining order in December after she and Mathews got into an argument.

Mathews said in December he called the police himself and after they left, he went out to record a podcast with a friend, then returned home and went to sleep without interacting with Farley. He alleges that he was woken up by police at 2 a.m. and removed from his home after being informed that Farley had contacted the judge and filed a restraining order against him.

Despite the alleged incidents, Farley says she did her best to put on a brave face for their children and to let them know that she and Mathews are a unit.

“I clearly thought of us co-parenting well into the future as responsible parents should,” Farley wrote.

Farley concluded her statement with a message to victims of domestic violence.

“So many of you may be understandably afraid to come forward, and have been stuck in abusive relationships for far too long just as I have been. If anyone is feeling down, broken, hurt or lost, please know that it is not your fault!”

Since filing for divorce in September, Farley has not addressed her relationship breakdown but has been heavily focused on her children.

In November, Farley revealed Greyson had been diagnosed with autism after previously opening up about his speech delay.

On Christmas Eve, Farley posted a video on YouTube that showed all the progress Greyson has made in learning how to talk over the course of 2018.

“I’m so excited to share this video with you all documenting the progress Greyson has made throughout this past year. I’m so proud of him and thankful for everyone’s love and support throughout this journey.”

Farley previously expressed feeling alone in her relationship with Mathews after their son’s diagnosis.

“In that aspect, I felt very alone because I was the only parent,” she continued. “I thought, ‘Am I bad wanting to get him help because Roger’s not concerned, so should I not be concerned?'”

Just hours before Farley released her statement, Mathews shared a video of himself dancing with daughter Meilani.

“A father’s role is to be the standard and the example of what you want your daughter to look for in a man. Circumstances change, the world because ever more complex yet that standard must never falter. Daddy loves you Meilani,” Mathews wrote.
