Jersey Shore star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro took to Instagram Stories on Thursday, December 12 to post several private text messages pertaining to his ongoing feud with ex Jen Harley. The MTV star accused Jen of abandoning their daughter Ariana in favor of a night out, and he also insinuated that she accepted money for some sort of sexual activity in the now-deleted messages.
It's unclear who was on the other end of the texts that Ronnie shared. In one, someone that appears to be a caregiver lets Jen know that Ariana is crying and asks her to come get the child. "Knows she's crying and decides getting drunk with a sugar daddy is better," Ronnie wrote on the screenshot along with laughing crying emojis.
In another, someone texts Ronnie about an alleged sexual encounter they had with Jen in an effort to get money. "Is it legal to have sexual activities for money? The question is ... where's was the son? Lmaooo," Ronnie wrote, not specifying any background details.
Ronnie proceeded to write a long message and accuse Jen of trying to ruin his life. "I refuse to sit back anymore, and let a mentally unstable person ruin my name, take my daughter, try to take my freedom with lies. I am standing up for myself & my daughter and everyone else this person has been trying to hurt over the past week. Upset because I've moved on with my life. I refuse to be bullied!!! I am a great father, an amazing person! I've been harassed for the last 2 weeks, people I care about being harrassed having fake stories being made up! Enough is enough! Let's the world know the truth," he wrote.
He continued, "All I have ever done is provide for my family, and try to give a life to them I never had. I won't let a sick person used the fact that I admitted to be depressed and emotionally broken to a point I needed help! It wasn't because of addiction it was because being dragged by a car, beat to death with my chain before Mike's court date, having a ashtray thrown at my face!! I am choosing to take my life back! Some people just don't want to give it back, they need that control of abuse! Well not anymore!!! The truth will set us all free!!"
Ronnie concluded his rant by highlighting the lengths of Jen's alleged emotional abuse. "I didn't even want to stoop to this pathetic level of instability. But how many fake articles can one person wake up to? How many fake lies can one person deal with that my daughter will have to hear? How much emotional abuse, mental control can one person tolerate? How many people can I let this person try to destroy in my life that I care about? I'm sticking up for myself, my daughter and the people in my life that this mentally unstable person has been harassing & threatening," he added.
Jen accused Ronnie of hooking up with her friend in her own rant on Instagram Stories on November 14.
The former couple split after a nasty argument turned physical and Ronnie was arrested on October 4. He is facing seven misdemeanor charges stemming from his arrest, including child endangerment, false imprisonment, and resisting arrest, according to court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com. He pleaded not guilty to the charges on November 8.
