AceShowbiz - Ronnie Ortiz Magro's ex-girlfriend Jen Harley seemed to be looking forward to a fresh start. One month after she was arrested on an assault with a deadly weapon and domestic battery, the former "Jersey Shore" star has checked herself into rehab for her alcohol dependency.
On Saturday, July 17, her representative Gina Rodriguez informed TMZ that the 34-year-old entered a 28-day program in Las Vegas. "Jen Harley has decided to check into a Las Vegas rehab facility to seek treatment for her alcohol dependency," she told the outlet. "She made the decision to get help because she wants to be the best parent she can be for her children." According to Gina, the rehab program started on Saturday morning.
On June 19, Jen was taken into custody at the Clark County Detention Center after she allegedly pointed a gun at her boyfriend Joseph Abrosole and threatened to kill him. At the time, her bond was set at $5,000 and she was set to attend a court hearing scheduled for June 20.
Her June arrest wasn't the first time Jen was busted. Back in 2019, she was arrested for allegedly throwing an ashtray at Ronnie, who was also arrested during their relationship for allegedly striking her and chasing her with a knife. In June 2018, Jen was also booked for domestic battery after she was accused of dragging Ronnie with her car during a fight. The Clark County District Attorney eventually decided not to press charges, saying there was "insufficient evidence."
Jen and the "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation" star share three-year-old daughter Ariana together and endured a tumultuous on-off three-year relationship that ended in 2019. However, they kept things relatively civil through 2020.
For now, the former couple has since moved on with new partners. Jen reportedly has been seeing a man named Joe for six months, while Ronnie has been dating Saffire Matos since 2020.
