Ronnie Ortiz-Magro Black Eye Mystery Solved ... Jen Allegedly Punched, Hit Him With Phone

10/30/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro suffered a nasty black eye after his baby mama allegedly hit him with a phone and punched him in the face, and this is a DIFFERENT incident from the one last week where cops came rushing to his home.

TMZ broke the story ... cops were called to the 'Jersey Shore' star's Vegas home Thursday night for a custody dispute over the couple's 6-month-old daughter. Law enforcement sources tell us during their visit, Ronnie told cops about Jen's history of violence toward him.

Now we find out ... this was just the latest incident of strife and violence. Back on October 5, Ronnie was allegedly brutalized by Jen ... he says she punched him and struck him in the head with a phone.

As we reported ... Ronnie posted a pic of his injuries on Instagram, but never disclosed what caused the shiner.

We're told officers in Vegas informed Ronnie he needed to file a police report in New Jersey -- where the alleged attack went down -- if he wanted Jen arrested. Sources close to Ronnie say he has not reported the incident ... at least not yet. 

The couple seemed to be on good terms this past weekend, boating with friends in Miami.

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Jen Harley We're Back ... After Black Eye Incident

10/28/2018 8:00 AM PDT

 9:00 AM PT --  We just got these photos of Ronnie and Jen all over each other during her birthday weekend.  The co-dependent couple is clearly back together, despite the domestic violence.

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Jen Harley seem like they're together again, despite black eyes and police reports.

Ronnie and Jen are both in Florida this weekend, and both have both posted videos though none of them show the 2 together. This is Jen's birthday weekend.

As you know ... their relationship has been downright violent at times. She showed up last week at his home, demanding to see their daughter ... just days after Ronnie posted a pic of a shiner around his eye.  

As we reported, our law enforcement sources tell us Ronnie filed a battery report with cops, naming Jen as the culprit.

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Jen Harley Cops Called ... After Heated Fight Over Daughter

10/26/2018 6:30 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Cops are getting to know Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Jen Harley by their first names, because they had to come out again Thursday night to break up an escalating fight over child custody.

Jen showed up at Ronnie's home to pick up 6-month-old Ariana Sky, only to be blocked at the front door by him and his aunt. The aunt went HAM, screaming that her only motive for creating all the drama was money. She also called Jen a whore.

This whole thing erupted after the former "Jersey Shore" star posted a video calling Jen out for leaving their baby and her 12-year-old son home alone so she could go out with her friends and get drunk. It appears after Ronnie posted that video, Jen went to his house to get the baby. 

Ronnie posted and deleted a screenshot of Jen asking for $20k for publicly humiliating her. 

As we reported, Jen allegedly attacked Ronnie Wednesday ... after which he posted a photo of a shiner around his eye. He didn't say specifically Jen was the culprit, but it's not hard to read between the lines.  

Check out the video ... you hear Ronnie getting smacked as she accuses him of killing her dog.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Ronnie filed a battery report with cops Thursday night ... presumably over the attack the night before. 

'Jersey Shore' Ronnie Nasty Black Eye Blames Baby Mama

10/24/2018 10:55 AM PDT

"Jersey Shore" star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro got a nasty shiner and it appears he's blaming it on his baby mama, Jen Harley.

Ortiz-Magro posted the close-up of his black eye with the caption, "Sorry for lying to my friends and family, sometimes u love people so much your willing to lie and the hurt the people that love u the most to protect."

The message is clear, Ronnie's been told by friends and family to break things off with Jen -- but he didn't listen -- and things apparently got violent. 

TMZ broke the story ... Harley was arrested in June after she allegedly dragged him with their Mercedes. They also had a violent encounter at a Vegas hotel when Ronnie was filming for "Jersey Shore."

The pair seemed happy in NYC a couple weeks ago -- out on a walk with their daughter -- but looks can clearly be deceiving. 

'The Situation' Happy Holidays!!! ... Won't Go to Prison Until 2019

10/23/2018 12:34 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

For a guy who's going to prison, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's got a lot to smile about because he won't be locked up until next year ... TMZ has learned.

According to docs filed Monday ... Sitch must surrender to the Bureau of Prisons no sooner than January 15, 2019. As we told you, Mike was sentenced to 8 months in the federal pen for tax evasion -- but the surrender date means he'll get to enjoy Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year with his "Jersey Shore" friends and fam. 

And remember, Mike's getting married to his fiancee, Lauren Pesce, next month ... so, he can even squeeze in a honeymoon before starting his prison life.

Here's to about 3 more months of GTL'in. Then it'll pretty much be just G & L, for a while. 

The Situation I'm Gonna Ball Out With My Wife ... When I Get Outta Prison

10/9/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is planning on a life of luxury when he gets home from prison ... Exhibit A -- his wedding registry. 

The Situation is marrying college sweetheart Lauren Pesce, November 1 (he has 60 days to turn himself in) and they're asking friends and family to spare no expense when it comes to wedding gifts. 

Only the best for Mike when he's done with his 8-month sentence for tax evasion ... the Sorrentinos want a $550 blender, $500 juicer, $380 dutch oven, $375 knife set and $180 pasta press ... 'cause he'll be tired of those cheap prison meals by the time he's a free man again.

The Sitch is probably dreading his jail cot ... but there's light at the end of the tunnel, because he and Lauren are asking for a $673 down comforter and $379 ivory sheepskin rug. Super comfy. 

No more mopping floors when he gets home either ... they want a $300 robot to mop and a $400 robot to vacuum.

And, if you splurge on the $150 flatware sets (they want 3), don't expect the newlyweds to use any of it to prepare an avocado ... no, they need a special tool for those pesky fruits.

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's pals from 'Jersey Shore' aren't going to leave him hanging now that he's been sentenced to hard time.

JWoww, Pauly D, Ronnie, Vinnie, Angelina, Deena and Snooki all showed up at Sitch's apartment in Long Branch, NJ Saturday to show him some love and support ... just like they did Friday outside the courthouse in Newark.

We got video of the cast -- sans Mike -- leaving the complex to go their separate ways ... but not before a round of hugs. Although ... JWoww says they won't be apart for long.

As we reported ... The Situation was sentenced to 8 months in prison in his tax evasion case, along with 2 years of supervised release. His attorney told us, "Mike accepts the Court's judgment. He is looking forward to marrying his college sweetheart, Lauren Pesce, next month and moving forward together after he serves his sentence."

Situation's brother, Marc -- who was also indicted at the same time on tax fraud charges -- was sentenced to 2 years and a $75k fine.

Mike responded to the sentencing on social media, saying they're happy to put this behind him.

He must surrender to authorities in 30 to 60 days. Until then ... we're sure he'll get a lot more visits from his friends.

9:45 AM PT -- Situation's brother, Marc -- who was also indicted at the same time on tax fraud charges -- has just been sentenced to 2 years and a $75k fine.

It's D-Day for Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino -- who just arrived at federal court in Newark, NJ to find out if he's going to prison for evading his taxes -- and he's got the whole 'Jersey Shore' crew with him.

The 'Jersey Shore' star is set to be sentenced Friday for tax evasion. As we reported, Sitch pled guilty way back in January. He could be looking at a max of 5 years in prison, but even prosecutors have been pushing for the judge to go easy on him.

Pauly D, Ronnie, JWoww, Vinnie, Snooki and Deena were all at the courthouse bright and early to show some love to their friend.  

Since entering his plea, Mike got the court's approval to travel to Florida and Nevada to shoot the 'Jersey Shore' reunion.

Mike's sentencing was originally scheduled for April 25, but his lawyer was able to buy him more time while resubmitting docs as part of his plea deal.

His sentence should be handed down shortly. Stay tuned ...

JWoww 'Jersey Shore' Star Files for Divorce ... Husband's Not Giving Up

Breaking News

9/28 -- Roger posted a video vowing to win his wife back.

The next season of 'Jersey Shore' just got real interesting ... JWoww is divorcing her husband, Roger Mathews ... TMZ has confirmed.

JWoww -- aka Jenni Farley -- filed docs in Ocean County, NJ 2 weeks ago. The split comes just shy of the couple's third anniversary. She cites irreconcilable differences, and says their marriage has been on the rocks for at least 6 months.

Roger occasionally appeared on episodes of the original 'JS' run, but he has not been involved with the most recent tapings of the rebooted version of the show ... "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation."

It's unclear what's at the center of their marital strife -- but earlier this year Roger kinda poured his heart out on social media ... admitting he and Jenni went through several ups and downs. He said, "Some days it’s a struggle to stay together. Some days she calls me a f**king d**k head (cause I am). Some days the grass looks greener on the other side. We aren’t even close to perfect and I have no intention on pretending that we are."

JWoww and Roger have 2 kids -- a 4-year-old daughter, Melani, and a 2-year-old boy, Grayson. 

The divorce was first reported by Jersey's Asbury Park Press.
