Ronnie Calls Welfare Check On Jen After Boozed-Up Harley Yells, Spits In his Face

The ongoing feud between Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and baby-mama Jen Harley is far from over, but after their latest fight, their relationship might be.

On this Thursday’s episode of Jersey Shore Family Vacation, Jen burst into Ronnie’s room after a night of wild drinking, to slam him for calling her demeaning names via text.

“I don’t want hear your whole f***ing bull***t story,” she screamed. “You text me at 1:30: ‘Slut, w***e, liar, cheater, b***h.’ You know you f***ing did. That’s how you f***ing are. You’re a piece of f***ing s**t. You’re a f***ing loser.”

Jen then lunged at Ronnie, 32, prompting a security guard to intervene and hold her back. Furious, Jen stormed out of the suite, ripping off her mic and cussing at her baby-daddy from afar.

“She’s f***ing drunk,” Ronnie alleged. “I can smell the alcohol on her breath. Where is my kid? Now I’m definitely moving forward with the lawyer.”

As readers know, Ronnie and Jen share 5-month-old daughter Ariana together, and have long been trying to mend their relationship for the sake of their girl. However, their love has been on a downward spiral ever since the reality star admitted to cheating on Jen on the hit show.

After their wild argument, the Jersey Shore screen went black, informing viewers that police had arrived to Ronnie’s room to investigate a call for domestic disturbance—though he refused to press charges.

“Jen came by and came into the suite, spit in my face, put her hands on me,” Ronnie told his cast mates the next day. “Cops came here and said listen, ‘That’s domestic violence.’ I go, ‘I don’t want to press charges.’ They go, ‘It doesn’t matter.’ In the state of Nevada, the laws have changed so that if they get a call about domestic violence, the state takes over.”

He then told his pals that there was a warrant out for Jen’s arrest—but she was nowhere to be found. readers know this is not Jen’s first physical attack against Ronnie. Back in June, she was arrested for battery after she hit him during an argument inside their car!

“The Ron and Sam drama was like, funny. This is not funny,” said a stunned Pauly D. “I knew things were bad between Ron and Jen, but I’ve never seen it firsthand. Now I’m witnessing it and I’m like, ‘Holy s**t.’ I had no idea that it was actually this bad.”

“This is like Jerry Springer, Maury type s**t,” added Snooki. “I feel like this isn’t real life—that’s how crazy it is. It’s not good.”

The rest of the stars were equally shocked.

“I don’t even know what to say,” said JWoww. “How did it get that ugly so quick?”

“Me and Jen have no control over our relationship,” Ronnie admitted. “Me and her are going to fight forever. We’ll probably fight until we’re f***ing 65 years old. It’s tit-for-tat. At the end of the day, no one ever wins. But that toxicity cannot affect the child, so I have to do something about this.”

While Ronnie and Jen have called it quits various times since they began dating, they’ve always managed to rekindle their love and get back together. But after Jen’s bizarre meltdown, the reality star may have had enough.

“I definitely think this is the last straw,” he said. “This relationship has to be done. … I’m torn because she’s my baby’s mother, but at the same time, I don’t want to drag my daughter through this.”

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro

Following the fight, Jen completely disappeared on Ronnie—and took their daughter with her.

Worries, Ronnie requested a welfare check, only for cops to tell him that both Jen and Ariana were doing fine, and there was no longer a warrant out for Jen’s arrest.

“I don’t understand what the f**k is actually going on,” said Ronnie. “I’d do anything to see my daughter but right now, it’s basically out of my hands. At this point, the baby is safe, and I need to just let the lawyer handle it. That’s why I went to him, and that’s why he’s involved.”

Though the star kept trying to reach Jen, she continued to avoid his calls.

“It sucks. Me and Jen always get into altercations. We’ve got to put a stop to this,” he continued. “We need stability for Ariana. If she’s dealing with chaos right now around her, then the rest of her life is going to be chaos, and I don’t want that for my daughter.”

Defeated, Ronnie went back to the hotel with his roommates.

“It’s definitely painful to watch the Ron and Jen situation,” said The Situation. “I know that he will do anything for the baby and he’s really trying to make this work at all costs—maybe to his demise.”

“Being a parent myself, I can only imagine how hard that must be for Ronnie,” added Pauly, who is a father to 5-year-old daughter, Amabella Sophia. “I don’t know what I would do if somebody was trying to take my kid from me, so I feel for him. I’m really happy and thankful that we’re actually here for Ronnie in the time that he needed it the most. Because if we weren’t here for this vacation, there’s no telling what he would have done.”
