We regret to inform you that the tumultuous relationship between Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Jen Harley is still a thing.
And it seems to be getting more dangerous and destructive with each passing week.
Ronnie posted the above photo to his Instagram story moments ago, and it seems he’s implying that Harley once again physically assaulted him:
“Sorry for lying to my friends and family,” Magro wrote on the pic.
“Sometimes u love people so much [you’re] willing to lie and the hurt the people that love u the most to protect.”
He tagged the pic @JenX, and while that’s not Harley’s Instagram handle, the message Ronnie seems to be sending is still pretty clear.
Sadly, this has been an ongoing pattern in Ronnie and Jen’s relationship.
The drama first came to a head back in June, when Jen dragged Ronnie with her car, a situation that was documented on recent episodes of Jersey Shore Family Vacation.
It’s a frightening situation, but the good news is that Ronnie and Jen’s latest posts seem to indicate that they’ve finally called it quits.
“Closure is a scam. Don’t text, don’t care. Just move on,” Ronnie posted on Instagram on Tuesday.
For her part, Harley unleashed on Ron in reaction to a follower’s question about her relationship:
“He’s lying,” Jen wrote.
“I’ll prove it again, along with the car thing. I can’t deal with a drug addict anymore. It’s getting so out of control.”
Hilariously, just days ago, Jen was reportedly griping to friends about how angry she is over Ron’s friends and their refusal to approve of his relationship:
“Jen is really hurt that people aren’t being supportive of her and Ronnie,” a source told Hollywood Life.
“There are times when she feels like everyone is against her and Ronnie and they are trying to tear away their happiness, just waiting for them to fail. It breaks her heart.”
The insider went on to describe how hurt Jen is by the continued skepticism of Ron’s Shore housemates:
“If she and Ronnie were fighting all the time she would understand all the negativity, but she swears they’re doing really well and are more in love than they’ve ever been,” says the tipster.
“Nothing is perfect — they still have arguments — but nothing out of the normal because they’re both working on it.
“They are doing therapy together and are really committed to working out their issues, because they want their daughter to grow up in a happy home.”
The source went on to describe exactly why Ronnie’s castmates are so concerned:
“Everybody’s worried things will spiral out of control before they finally decide they’re over for good,” the insider says.
Well, they weren’t wrong about that one.
Fortunately, the relationship is now over and Ronnie’s loved ones can breathe easy.
Until he and Jen inevitably get back together next week, of course.
