For the duration of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, we’ve watched the ugly and contentious relationship unfold between Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Jen Harley.

But it turns out another romance was fizzling out far away from the view of MTV cameras.

We can now confirm it is all over be Jenni “JWOWW” Farley and Roger Matthews after three years as husband and wife.

The reality star and her soon-to-be ex got married in October of 2015 and are the parents to a pair of kids, They have two children, Meilani Alexandra, 3, and Greyson Valor, 2.

According to multiple sources, Farley is the one who filed the divorce documents, citing “irreconcilable differences” on the papers that were entered into court on Wednesday, September 12, in Ocean County, New Jersey,

Neither Farley nor Mathews have commented on the split just yet.

But this is what the official complaint reads:

“The Plaintiff and the Defendant have irreconcilable differences which have caused the breakdown of the marriage for a period of at least six months which make it appear that the marriage should be dissolved and that there is no prospect of reconciliation.”


Farley and Mathews both appeared on numerous seasons of Jersey Shore, although it’s perhaps notable he did not join her for either season of this Family Vacation revival.

He remained at home with the children instead.

Farley and Mathews were last spotted together a mere two days ago being “tourists” in a video posted to the latter’s Instagram account.

Mathews’ current bio, meanwhile, may very well offer up a clue as to what has transpired between the pair…

… or at least who is to blame for their break-up.

“Good father. Horrible husband. Worst lover ever. 10 [feet] tall and bulletproof. Figuring life out,” it reads.

Could he have cheated?

In January of this year, Mathews shared a long message to his wife on Instagram —  but noted that she wouldn’t see it because she was filming the reality show, hinting that the separation caused by this filming may have led to their actual separation.

“Just the next chapter in our story. In case you missed it, it goes something like this,” he wrote.

“2010 two selfish assholes meet each other in a bar, the two begin to date and continue to party hard, it isn’t all cupcakes and unicorns, neither takes any sh-t and both are used to running the show. 3 years in they get engaged, still no sh-t taking and not a unicorn to be seen…

“a year later they have their first child out of wedlock just to piss off traditional people and party with Satan a bit more.

“2015 they get married and announce they are pregnant with a son, probably fought at the wedding.

“2015 to present they remain vigilant and defy the odds of reality tv, flawed personalities, alpha demeanors, hot tempers and an inferior penis and remain married while raising their two children to the best of their abilities while still butting heads over the dumbest sh-t.”

(Did he just write inferior penis?)

Continued Matthews here:

“2018 one has a mid life crisis and flies to Miami with old friends and leaves said husband for a really jacked dude from the club named Billy Bad Ass that can flex his pec muscles to the tune of Jingle Bells. Ok. I made that last part up.

“Blessed to have what we have and grateful for it. Mom makes much of that happen.”

And concluded Matthews:

“Love you Mom. 

“(She won’t even see this for a month cause they aren’t allowed cell phones so if you see her in the club please recite this entire post to her by memory, scream it as loud as you possibly can while dancing like a complete idiot to hold her attention and focus.)

Make of all that what you will.
