When Jersey Shore returned after a VERY long hiatus, we figured we'd be talking about Ronnie Ortiz-Magro again.
But not like this.
The muscle-bound reality star has been making headlines all week for an extraordinarily ugly and personal spat with girlfriend Jen Harley.
Making matters especially disturbing between these two?
They welcomed a daughter into the world mere weeks before blowing up at each other.
And we mean BLOWING UP at each other.
Scroll down for a closer look at what has gone wrong between Ronnie and Jen, along with a video of the parents nearly coming to physical blows.
This is legitimately ugly stuff. That poor baby girl...
Ronnie and Jen got together in July of 2017 and seemed excited to become parents in early April 2018 to a girl named Ariana. Heck, Ronnie, often known for his extreme temper, sounded like a changed man when his daughter was born.
He Actually Said This Upon Becoming a Father:
"You live your life not ever really knowing the meaning of true love until you have a child. True unconditional love... I understand when everyone said you’ll understand ‘when you have a child of your own or when you become a parent.’ I know I have still tons to learn but I’m excited for this new journey & chapter in my life with my beautiful girlfriend & my daughter."
Oh man. Buckle up and prepare to wince. It was three weeks after Jen and Ronnie gushed over their baby girl when things turned UGLY.
It Started with a Sex Tape
Not between Ronnie and Jen; between Jen and an ex-boyfriend, prompting Ronnie to GO OFF on Instagram and ask: "If your significant other keeps sex videos of their ex, shouldn’t they show enough respect to delete them, esp after being in a new relationship for over a year?"
Can't Turn a Hoe Into a Housewife
As you can see above, this is what Ronnie actually said... about his newborn's mother! It would be a funny line to include in a Jersey Shore script, less so when it applies to your real-life baby mama.
It was pretty good, if you also ignore the context: "You can't turn a coke head into a father."
