“Jersey Shore” star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro may have delivered a very pointed message to his ex, weeks after he was arrested for alleged domestic violence: stay away.
Ortiz-Magro, 33, was arrested last month following an alleged altercation with his on again/off again girlfriend, Jen Harley. He has since been released, but in an Instagram post on Sunday, he seemed to take a shot at his former partner and the mother of his infant daughter.
The former reality TV star posted a graphic of a quote from writer r.h. Sin, which reads, “I forgive you but stay the f—ck out of my life.”
He then wrote in the caption, “Everyone say it with me!”
Ortiz-Magro was taken into custody last month following a heated incident involving he and his ex. Officers with the Los Angeles Police Department responded to an L.A.-area residence after receiving calls reporting that a woman was outside shouting that someone had taken her baby, Fox 11 reports. Upon the arrival of police, Ortiz-Magro reportedly refused to cooperate, prompting authorities to force their way inside the home and then use Tasers to apprehend the suspect.
Ortiz-Magro, who is also alleged to have threatened Harley with a knife while holding their daughter in his other hand, was led away from the area, handcuffed and on a stretcher, according to TMZ’s report. He was released later that day after posting $100,000 bail.
He has since been charged with false imprisonment, misdemeanor domestic violence, brandishing a weapon, child endangerment, resisting arrest, and threatening to commit a crime, PEOPLE reports. If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of one year per charge, according to the outlet.
Ortiz-Magro, who has maintained his innocence in the aftermath of the incident, entered a not guilty plea on Friday. He is scheduled to next appear in court for a pretrial conference on Nov. 12.
His relationship with Harley has been filled with drama and brushes with the law. In addition to their frequent social media spats, Harley was arrested last year after allegedly dragging Ortiz-Magro with her car during an especially heated argument. However, prosecutors ultimately decided to drop the case, citing insufficient evidence, according to E! News.
