Another one of Jenni “JWoww” Farley’s exes has found himself in trouble with police. Thomas Lippolis has been arrested and charged with trying to extort money from the Jersey Shore star.
According to reports, on Dec. 17, Jenni told cops that Thomas attempted to extort $25,000 from her in exchange for not spilling secrets to the media.
The authorities launched an investigation and ultimately charged him with 3rd degree extortion.
Jenni received the news from her publicist, who allegedly received a call from Thomas demanding the money.
In a statement provided to ET, Jenni addressed the arrest. "I would like to applaud the Toms River Police and the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office for their professionalism, expedited response time and unwavering attention to detail that resulted in an immediate arrest after I was the target of a serious crime," she said. "I feel fortunate to have the support of law enforcement of this caliber by my side, which has thankfully kept me and my children safe from those who have sought to victimize me."
"While I am unable to comment any further in light of the ongoing investigation,” she added, “I offer to you that I will share more once this matter is concluded, but in the meantime ask that you please respect the private nature of these legal matters so that the authorities may properly conduct their business operations.”
As previously reported by OK!, last week Jenni’s estranged husband Roger Mathews was arrested following a domestic dispute. Roger was slapped with a restraining order, and in a series of tearful Instagram videos, he claimed that he is no longer allowed to see his children.
