Ronnie Ortiz-Magro does not appear to have resolved to live a peaceful and scandal-free life in 2019.
Or, heck, perhaps he has.
The Jersey Shore veteran may simply be incapable of doing so.
First, according to Us Weekly, Ronnie has broken up with long-time girlfriend Jen Harley.
Will the split stick this time? Who the heck knows with these two?!?
But it sounds like things turned ugly once more between the often-contentious couple, per an anonymous source who told this tabloid the following:
“Ronnie and Jen got into a fight on New Year’s Eve. They broke up before New Year’s Eve, got back together right before then and got in a big fight on Monday night.
"They’re currently broken up. But it’s the same story every time: They are together, they fight, they break up and then get back together.”
Just a few days prior to this latest confrontation, Ronnie and Jen got into the loving holiday spirit by posing with their kids* for some adorable holiday photos.
(*Jen has a son from a prior relationship and she welcomed Ronnie's daughter, Ariana, in early April of last year.)
As you can see, the reality stars looked perfectly content, calm and happy in these pictures -- but looks can be deceiving.
"They fight... a lot. They have a very volatile relationship. It’s either great or the total opposite," writes Us Weekly, stating the most obvious thing ever to anyone who watched Jersey Shore: Family Vacation last season.
Mere weeks after becoming parents together, Ronnie and Jen engaged in an epic and very ugly online argument, with each side accusing the other of infidelity.
Ronnie referred to Jen as a "cum dumpster." Jen said Ronnie was a "cokehead."
You can relive that back-and-forth here:
The two somehow worked through that spat... only for Jen to literally spit on Ronnie during a fight last June and then get arrested for domestic battery after dragging him down the street with her car.
And yet: they'll probably be back together next week.
Elsewhere, meanwhile, Ronnie has been named a “person of interest” in a possible burglary that occurred in the early hours of Tuesday, January.
Scroll down for the details on this unexpected situation...
A source spoke to Us Weekly yesterday and said the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department responded to a residence at about 3:23 a.m. on New Year’s Day concerning a burglary call:
“Ronnie was not at the home when the police arrived at the scene.
"Jen was not injured, but given the history of police calls between these two, police more than likely provided Jen with information about getting a restraining order, and other things she could do to prevent a escalating domestic violence issue.”
This insider says nothing was taken in the alleged crime, but there was damage to items inside the home.
And there is now an ongoing investigation, with authorities likely to contact Ortiz-Magro.
Neither Ronnie nor Jen has commented on this investigation.
The former, though, has removed any trace of Harley from his Instagram account.
Moreover, he Liked a negative remark in which a fan stated that they hoped his daughter “doesn’t grow up to act like her mother.”
So, in other words, this may be a new year for Ronnie.
But it's very much the same old drama.
