Jersey Shore alum Jenni "JWoww" Farley stepped out with a new man. Who is he?
Jenni “JWoww” Farley has a new man in her life but she’s keeping his identity a big secret. The Jersey Shore star posted a photo to instagram with a man’s arm in the shot and the caption “Cheers to the weekend.” She didn’t drop any hints as to who the new guy is, leaving fans to speculate wildly about who the recently single star might be seeing. Who is JWoww’s new boyfriend? Read on for all the details.
Farley is in the process of divorcing her husband and the father of her two kids, Roger Mathews. The two have known each other since the first season of Jersey Shore, though it wasn't until season three that they actually started dating. He was there for her during some rough parts of her life. She discussed the difficult times she faced in 2011 during a 2018 interview, revealing, “Three to four weeks before Italy, my grandmother passed and me and Roger actually lost a baby … not a lot of people know. They put me on medication because of it because I couldn’t handle life. The medication – it was like Xanax, it would take me down. The downers would make me so groggy, then I would start taking uppers. I segued right into Italy. I was a f—king mess.” The pair got engaged in 2012 and had their first child in 2014. By 2015, they were married and welcomed their second child later that year.
In 2018, Farley filed for divorce. Mathews addressed the situation on social media saying “My wife filed for divorce, it’s true. I’m just gonna keep it simple. I don’t blame her. There’s no cheating or any dumb s–t, any juicy details. She just grew tired of the repetitive pattern that we fell into … again, I’m not gonna get into detail but it was a repetitive pattern and not a good one. I’m not done fighting, I’m gonna win my wife back. I’m gonna win her affection back, I’m gonna win her love back. I have no intention of being a single dad. We’re in counseling so there is hope. It ain’t over till the fat lady sings.”
3. Restraining order
But despite Mathews’ hopes for the future, by December, relations between the two had reached a low point. police escorted Mathews out of the home and he posted about the incident. He said ““My wife was screaming in my daughter’s face, 'Your father’s a piece of s—t. He’s out of here. He’s out of here. I’m sorry I ever had children with him. I’m not allowed to be there for my children anymore because somebody else is so hate-filled that they would do that to the father of their children, to a great father to their children. It’s sad, man. It’s just sad.'” Farley filed an order of protection after the incident and Farley’s reps said “Any statements and social media posts depicting anything to the contrary are entirely false, misleading, and intentionally designed to cast Jenni in a negative light.”
The divorce quickly got messy.
In 2019, Farley wrote a public post accusing Mathews of abusing her, saying "You are an abuser to the core, Roger Mathews. You have spit at me. You have pushed me. You have shoved me. You have aggressively thrown me to the ground. You have prevented me from closing doors to escape having you coming at me. You have belittled and disparaged me. You have threatened me.” She went on to claim he blackmailed her, lied about her and attempted to smear her name. Reps for Mathews refused to comment.
Farley has strong words for her ex.
In an unexpected twist, Farley and her ex-husband made an appearance together recently with both of their kids as well. The family stepped out to hit up an Easter train ride in New Hope, PA and posted photos to social media. But despite some buzz about it possibly being a step toward getting back together reps for Farley quickly poured cold water over the rumors, saying “Jenni’s kids’ needs and wants will always come first. She is being an adult about the divorce and working towards being better coparents. As far as the divorce, there is no reconciliation in the future and she is excited about continuing to move on with her life.”
The kids come first.
6. Old Flame
Some fans have questioned if Farley might be headed back into the arms of former hook-up and Jersey Shore castmate Paul “DJ Pauly D” Delvecchio . He fielded questions on the topic during a junket for his new show Double Shot at Love, which he’s filming with another Jersey Shore alum Vinny Guadagnino. “She’s a great girl, she’s awesome. But she is like a sister to us, she’s like family. I wouldn’t want to cross that line again.”
7. Mystery man
So far the only thing fans know about the new man in Farley’s life is that he exists. The pic of his arm doesn’t give any clues to his identity and the reality star isn’t sharing details at this time.
Will we ever know who JWoww is dating now? Time will tell.
