As has been proven numerous times over the past year and a half or so, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Jen Harley simply cannot stay away from each other.
Through horrible personal media fights… to various arrests for domestic violence… and, most recently, alleged cocaine use and kidnapping, the effed up couple continues to get back together.
But we can safely say this actually will NOT be the case for at least a few more days.
Because the legal system now prevents Jen and Ronnie from even being in the same room with one another.
Two days after Ortiz-Magro allegedly attacked Jen with a knife, locked himself and his young daughter inside of a home and had to be tasered by police, the Los Angeles Police Department has granted Harley an emergency order of protection against Ronnie.
He must stay at least 100 yards away from his girlfriend and also from the home they share in Las Vegas.
The order is in place until October 11.
If Harley wishes for Ronnie to be forced to remain this same distance away from her for the foreseeable future, she can go to court and have a judge issue a long-term restraining order against the Jersey Shore star.
We’ll have to wait and see if that happens.
For now, Jen feels a need to keep Ronnie far away from her after the reality stars engaged in yet another loud and ugly argument early this past Friday morning.
Cops were eventually called to the premises after Ortiz-Magro reportedly chased after Jen and his daughter, the former of whom had run out of the rented home the family had been occupying out of fear of what Ronnie might do.
According to the Harley, Ronnie threatened her witha a knife and granned 18-month old Ariana out of her arms.
She says he then took the child back inside the house and refused to let the police enter.
Hence why they had to break the door down, tase Ronnie and handcuff him to a gurney.
Ronnie was then arrested for both assault and also for kidnapping; he could very well lose custody of Ariana as a result.
"The reporting of the alleged incident relating to Ronnie Magro yesterday is based upon pure speculation and innuendo," Ortiz-Magro’s attorney, Scott E. Leemon, said in a statement to on Saturday, adding:
"We are currently conducting our own investigation and will have no further comment until that has been concluded."
Neither Ronnie or Jen had addressed the arrest/incident in public.
Surveillance footage from a neighbor’s camera, however, does depict Harley trying to get help while carrying Ariana during the alleged incident.
Jen would claim she was attempting to get Ariana away from her cocaine-fueled father.
According to a new report, though, Ronnie would claim that Jen was actually the one trying to kidnap Ariana and that he was merely trying to protect his toddler.
He also says he never used a knife.
“Officers responded to a battery in progress in the 7200 block of Woodrow Wilson Drive at around 2:40 a.m.,” the Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement.
“Suspect and victim were involved in some kind of physical altercation.
"When officers [were] on location, the suspect was uncooperative. Officers had to use a taser so there was minor use of force that occurred.”
Now, the question must be asked:
