She just can't catch a break.
Just days after filing a restraining order against her husband, Jenni "JWOWW" Farley's ex-boyfriend Thomas Lippolis was arrested and charged with third-degree extortion after he attempted to blackmail the mother of two amid her recent family drama.
Jenni called the police to report the extortion after her ex Tom called her publicist asking for $25,000 in return for not sharing personal secrets about her to the media. He was then arrested and charged in New Jersey with the Tom's River Police Department posting his mugshot and details of the arrest to Instagram.
This is so messy and I love it. Naming and shaming on social media by the police is the best thing I've seen in a long time.
Following the news of his arrest, Jenni spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the situation:
"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, 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,"
THIS IS A FUCKING MESS. But I'm glad the punk didn't get his money because the "secrets" from their relationship of ten years ago must not be that good. He was an asshole on Jersey Shore all those years ago and it looks like a leopard doesn't change its spots.
