Jersey Shore star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is a troubled person.
We’ve known this for some time, as have fans of his hit show.
The fallout from Ron’s combustible, even violent, personal relationships continues to wreak havoc on him, his family, and those with whom he has romantic relationships.
Today, a new development reinforces this sad fact.
We are sad to announce on Thursday evening that Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is again in trouble with the law.
For a familiar reason as well, which can make it difficult to avoid serving a sentence behind bars this time around.
Allow us to explain …
According to TMZ, the veteran MTV reality TV star was arrested Thursday in Los Angeles for domestic violence.
To be precise, he was convicted of “intimate partner violence with injury with the priors,” according to the LAPD.
That’s really all we know at press time, as this is breaking news.
Few details about the incident itself are available at this time, but luckily it appears her daughter is doing well.
“His daughter, [Ariana], was with him as it was his turn to watch her this week, but she is in good hands now,” a source revealed.
“The incident did not involve her ex Jenn Harley. ”
Jenn was reportedly in Las Vegas when Ronnie Ortiz-Magro was arrested; Ariana is now with her brother until Jenn can pick her up.
Ronnie Ortiz-Magro was released on $ 100,000 bail Thursday night.
Beyond that, even his lawyer pleads ignorance right now.
Ron’s attorney Scott Leemon told TMZ, which broke history on Thursday, “We have just learned of the new allegations against Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and need a little extra time to investigate further. ”
“As such, we will not be making any further statements at this time. ”
It’s understandable. But here’s the thing:
Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is on probation from his previous domestic violence arrest.
Remember when he was taken into custody after allegedly holding ex-girlfriend Jenn Harley by a knife and stealing her daughter from her?
The reality TV star managed to avoid jail after getting a plea, despite being charged with domestic violence, wielding a weapon, endangering children, bogus imprisonment. [of Jenn], resist arrest and make criminal threats.
Under the terms of that deal, however, he had to avoid legal trouble for 36 months for fear of risking serving a prison sentence.
Now that he’s been arrested? For an equally violent crime?
He is entitled to his due process, and that may well be rejected, as far as we know. But on the other hand, it’s no exaggeration to say that the 35-year-old could very well go to jail.
Ortiz-Magro and Harley, as fans are well aware, have had a very controversial relationship for over two years.
This produced an adorable daughter named Ariana, but it also led to both sides being arrested for allegedly assaulting the other.
Harley, for example, admitted to dragging Ronnie Ortiz-Magro along the road by his car – while Ronnie Ortiz-Magro was arrested in October 2019 for a truly frightening altercation.
Harley told authorities at the time that she, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Ariana were staying in a rental in California when Ronnie took drugs… held a knife to his throat… and grabbed the toddler with his hands.
Ronnie Ortiz-Magro was later accused of locking himself and the child inside the house.
When the police finally arrived at the scene, they had to use a taser to knock Ronnie Ortiz-Magro down and then take him away.
To be clear, however, the victim of this alleged new crime was not Harley.
Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has claimed in several interviews that he has moved on and is happily dating a woman named Saffire Matos.
She seems pretty serious about the MTV personality, too, referring to Ronnie Ortiz-Magro as her “future husband” on Instagrram earlier this month.
But it also looks like Matos and Harley had their own fights.
Harley took to Instagram in late January and claimed that fake accounts – linked to Saffire, she claims – had sent a direct message to her new boyfriend, Joe.
“Who does the F think she tells my man if he can see my daughter or not,” Jen wrote with this so-called evidence of Saffire’s stalking, adding at the time:
“This chick has been about 3 months trying to dictate who the F my daughter sees ?? You screwed me up!
Harley went on to say that she possessed text messages (somehow, for whatever reason) from Saffire herself that prove that she is simply using Ronnie Ortiz-Magro for fame and fortune.
“I have messages from his profile saying that she only used it for a Dior handbag a few months ago and that she wants to leave it, but he sends her to a beautician school and she wants to build a Hollywood sequel, ”Jen wrote two months ago.
In response to this puzzling mess, Matos went online and claimed that Harley was stalking her.
“She has harassed Me by trying to tear me down and NOW FOCUSED ON MY NAME by hitting people who don’t like me, just to make me look bad,” Saffire writes.
“My sanity is important to me and I’ve never done anything to get media attention, but it’s hard to keep quiet after a year.
“This will be the only time I will address this issue and take the appropriate steps to finally try to stop it. ”
However, it is too much time spent with these women.
Partly because we have no idea who or what was involved in or led to this reported confrontation.
But mostly because it’s all about Ronnie Ortiz-Magro right now – and the huge issues he seems to be in.
We will update this story as more news arrives.
