According to a recent episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, Jen Harley may be pregnant right now.
Go ahead and shudder at the thought, we know.
But while we wonder about the status of this occasionally violent reality star’s womb, we can update readers on Harley’s legal status, pending an investigation of an incident that took place this past New Year’s Eve.
Which is a long and rambling way of saying the following:
Harley will not face charges for allegedly clocking Ronnie Ortiz-Magro in the face with an ashtray.
On the night of December 31, Ronnie and Jen were out partying at a club when they into one of their many, many verbal altercations.
But multiple outlets reported that this one turned physical, as Harley tossed a glass ashtray at Ronnie’s head after the MTV star got up to leave the establishment.
As described below, Ronnie filed battery charges against his girlfriend at the time:
That was then, however.
Now, as described a few days ago, Ronnie is back together with Jen and everything is apparently all good and, as a result, he’s no longer willing to cooperate with authorities.
Harley’s lawyer spoke to TMZ on Monday and explained that the Clark County District Attorney’s Office has declined to prosecute his client for domestic battery and the case has been dropped.
Law enforcement officials say Ronnie won’t testify against his lover and baby mama and, without the help of the victim, there’s no point in moving forward with the case.
This New Year’s Eve fight appeared to be the end of Ronnie and Jen back when it happened.
Not only did Ronnie publicize the injuries he claimed to have suffered from the attack (via the photo below), but Jen claimed that she returned home after the couple’s ugly night out… and her place was ransacked.
She believed that Ortiz-Magro broke in and smashed her valuables, including a vase and a flat-screen TV.
No charges were ever brought against Ronnie for this supposed act, either, however.
And now here we are: with the pair happily smiling for photos together once more and acting like none of this ever happened.
“Right now things are going good [with Jen], and I think it’s because I made a change and I stopped doing the same thing over and over again," Ronnie recently told Us Weekly.
He added in this interview:
“I started just focusing on myself and stopped worrying about what other people wanted from me, and what I want for myself."
To the reality star’s credit, Ronnie actually checked into rehab at the outset of 2019, saying he had fallen into serious depression and that he was struggling with his dependence on alcohol.
“I couldn’t live hurting myself, basically having my daughter grow up and it’s eventually going to hurt her,” Ortiz-Magro said months ago of this decision, adding:
"I was in a place of depression, and with depression I turned to alcohol …
"I was sitting there blaming everything else; I was like the victim, and I’m not a victim to life. I’m blessed and I’m lucky enough that I have different options, different outlets."
We’re very proud of Ronnie for taking this step.
We hope it means he never calls the mother of his child a cum dumpster ever again.
