"Jersey Shore" star Jenni “JWoww” Farley has posted disturbing footage online that allegedly shows her estranged husband Roger Mathews attacking her.
Farley posted a lengthy statement addressed to Mathews, whom she met on the third season of “Jersey Shore” and whom she was married to for three years, on her website. The statement accuses her former husband of domestic abuse and lying.
“You are an abuser to the core,” she wrote.
Accompanying the statement are several videos, one of which appears to show someone resembling Mathews grab her before throwing her to the ground.
"You wanna get violent?" he appears to yell at her as he throws her to the ground in a kitchen. Children can be heard screaming in the background.
Other videos include the reality star and Mathews arguing in front of their 2-year-old son.
"I have spent the last few months trying to protect our children from public humiliation, because as parents, we are supposed to protect them,” Farley says in the statement. As for the kitchen clip, she writes, "I can't recall why you assaulted me on that occasion – just another day in the Farley-Mathew's home.”
In her statement, Farley also accused Mathews of trying to extort money from her along with her ex-boyfriend Thomas Lippolis. Late last year, Lippolis was charged with extortion after allegedly calling Farley's publicist and demanding $25,000 in exchange for not sharing secrets about her with media outlets. The two dated for a year about 10 years ago.
Mathews has not publicly responded to the new allegations. He has not been charged with any crime. However, in the past he did tell Page Six that Farley made up a fake story in order to get a restraining order against him last December.
Police were called to the New Jersey home Farley and Matthews share in December for a “civil matter,” the Toms River Police Department confirmed to USA Today. After serving Matthews with a temporary restraining order, police drove him to another location, authorities said in a statement.
At the time, Farley's team addressed the incident in a statement shared on her Instagram page.
“While Jenni has refrained from making any public statements relating to her impending divorce, in light of recent events we have decided to make an official statement,” it read. “Certain events transpired last night which lead [sic] Jenni to involve the authorities, as she felt it was in her best interests, and the best interests of her children to do so. 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.”
