Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is doing everything in his power to turn his life around – even if that means moving to a new state. The Jersey Shore star, who just finished a stint in rehab for depression and alcoholism, revealed that he is moving to Los Angeles in the near future.
“I think out in Vegas, I just didn’t have any structure or routine,” he revealed.
The only issue with Ortiz-Magro’s plan is that his on-and-off again girlfriend, Jen Harley, still lives in Las Vegas with their daughter, Ariana. According to Us Magazine, the couple has yet to determine if Ariana will live with her dad or mom, and Ortiz-Magro has a plan for whatever ends up happening.
If Ariana stays with Harley, Ortiz-Magro plans to be as supportive as possible. Once she has reached the age where she can make decisions on her own, the Jersey Shore star hopes that she will choose to live with him in Los Angeles.
The decision to leave Las Vegas is clear indication that things are over between Ortiz-Magro and Harley – at least for now. As far as Ortiz-Magro is concerned, he is focusing on bettering himself and has come to the realization that he cannot change Harley. That does not mean their relationship is over for good, but it sounds like he is finally ready to move on.
“All I can do is control myself. I can’t control her, I can’t control my daughter,” he explained.
