Things are not looking up for Jenn Harley!
The former Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star and baby mama of Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is being charged with a felony and may be facing prison time.
It was recently announced that Jenn was heading back to rehab in order to work on herself, but it appears that wasn’t enough for the courts.
TMZ recently reported that Jenn Harley was getting sober.
“Jenn Harley has decided to check into a Las Vegas rehab facility to seek treatment for her alcohol dependency,” her rep told the outlet. “She made the decision to get help because she wants to be the best parent she can be for her children.”
Apparently, Jenn made the decision to go herself. She entered a 28-day program back in July.
Jenn was recently arrested for domestic violence, which could have spurred her decision to seek help.
Last month, Jenn allegedly pointed a gun at her new boyfriend. She’s facing charges of domestic battery and assault with a deadly weapon, according to TMZ.
But now, Jenn has formally been charged with a felony. According to The Hollywood Gossip, Jenn was charged with “assault with a domestic weapon constituting domestic violence” and one misdemeanor count of “battery constituting domestic violence.”
The outlet also reported that Jenn’s stint in rehab was to avoid a longer prison sentence.
According to The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, Jenn is pleading not guilty.
“We believe the charges are unsubstantiated and that overwhelming mitigating evidence exists that Jen did not commit any crime,” a statement from her lawyer read. “We look forward to our day in court and having all charges against Ms. Harley dismissed.”
In other news, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has been dealing with a lot this past year. Last October, the Jersey Shore star was involved in an altercation with Jen Harley, which resulted in him being separated from his daughter.
Ron was arrested and charged with seven misdemeanors, which included domestic violence, child endangerment, criminal threats, brandishing a weapon, false imprisonment, and resisting arrest. He denied the allegations and plead not guilty in court.
Jen had an emergency protective order against Ronnie, which separated the reality star from his daughter. He was anxiously waiting to legally reunite with Ariana, but a while back he was able to see his daughter again.
