Just days after Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and his girlfriend Jen Harley announced that they were happier and more in love than ever, the two got into a vicious social media war with Instagram stories. And, it all started when Ortiz-Magro accused Harley of neglecting her kids, so she could go out and drink.
In a series of now-deleted posts, Ortiz-Magro accused Harley of leaving her 12-year-old son home alone while she went out partying with friends.
“Left 12yr old son alone while she went to drink” read an Ortiz-Magro snap taken at 6:38 am on October 21st. “This is why i had the baby bc she wasn’t home at 630 am and her son alone until 930 am.”

It wasn’t long before Harley started firing back, writing that her daughter was screaming and crying under Ortiz-Magro’s care, and she was scared because she never cries like that. “I’m so heartbroken,” wrote Hartley.
According to Radar Online, it was at this point that the feud started to escalate. They brought up their fight on Jersey Shore when Harley made a scene and stormed off after a night of drinking with Ortiz-Magro and the rest of the cast. And, Harley accused her boyfriend of never wanting her to be part of the group.
All of this played out on the most recent episode of Jersey Shore. They were all enjoying a night out at Harrah’s in Vegas to see DJ Pauly D, but a hotel rep showed up to let Harley know the property had banned her. But, Ortiz-Magro convinced the rep that everything would be calm, and they allowed her to remain on the premises. She ended up getting drunk and fighting with Ortiz-Magro before ditching him and the rest of the cast.
Back to their social media feud, Harley also asked via text (Ortiz-Magro posted screenshots) for the reality star to give her $20,000 so she would leave him alone.
“Pull out 20K, and I’ll go,” wrote Harley.

After accusing his girlfriend of giving him a black eye, Ortiz-Magro then posted a creepy video (which he has since deleted) where fans could hear harsh sounds inside his home. In the caption, he wrote that the sounds were of an assault with a weapon and hands. He added the hashtags #BatteredMen, #MenLivesMatter, and #AbuseOrNah.”
Harley and Ortiz-Magro have tried to make their relationship work after the birth of their daughter in April. But, even with counseling and anger management classes, they still can’t seem to get along. She even claimed on Instagram that Ronnie Ortiz-Magro took their daughter a few days ago and has refused to give her back.
