Things have escalated very quickly between Jenni "JWOWW" Farley and Roger Mathews.
In September, the Jersey Shore star filed for divorce.
In October, the couple nevertheless celebrated its three-year anniversary together with a publicized night out.
In December... Farley and Mathews got into such an intense argument that the former filed for a restraining order against the latter and Mathews blasted his estranged wife as "hate-filled."
Where do things stand now between the stars?
And where do they go from here?
Scroll down for an update...
How Did This Fight Start?
According to various outlets, Jenni and Roger got into it late Thursday/early Friday because JWOWW had to travel again for work and Mathews was sick of her leaving their two young kids, ages two and three.
This Has Been an Ongoing Issue for the Couple
Back when JWOWW asked for her divorce, insiders at the time explained that her work schedule prevented the pair from spending a lot of time together.
But How Did It Spiral Out of Control
While they went back and forth, TMZ now reports, Mathews yanked out his phone and started recording his wife. Jenni asked him to stop. He refused. And when Roger went to bed, Farley called the cops and said he was harassing her.
Mathews Was Blindsided by the 911 Call
And then blindsided even more when authorities escorted him out of his own home and he learned that Farley had been granted an order of protection against him.
Why Would Mathews Film Farley?
To taunt her and prompt an emotional reaction, Snooki claimed in her defense of her pal. But Mathews has said his lawyer advised him to record all his confrontations with Jenni.
This Explains Roger's Subsequent Rant
It doesn't forgive it, per se, not when he got so cruel and so personal. But if Mathews was booted from his home in the middle of the night and left with the impression that he was restrained from seeing his kids... we can see why he was so angry.
