Ronnie Ortiz Magro posted a video highlighting the night of his CBD company’s launch party in Los Angeles and it’s making eyebrows raise because that was also the night he was arrested after reportedly punching Jen Harley in the face and chasing her out of their Airbnb with a knife. The “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” star posted the behind-the-scenes footage from their launch party, which took place in October at Poppy nightclub in West Hollywood, on his Instagram Monday night, leaving many to wonder why he’d want to remember that night.
“Here’s a recap of our #VergeCBD launch party!?? @vergecbd,” he captioned the video. In the footage, Ronnie Ortiz Magro is seen mixing and mingling with several partygoers and photographed with a giant smile on his face. As The Blast reported, in videos from the party, captured by Jen, Ronnie seemed to be intoxicated. Hours later, the reality star was arrested and hit with five charges including domestic violence and child endangerment. The police dispatch audio made it clear that they were on a manhunt for Ronnie, who was reportedly looking for Jen shirtless and carrying a knife.
When cops arrived to the scene, the MTV star had barricaded himself in the home to which authorities were forced to break down the door. Ronnie Ortiz Magro was tased, hospitalized and eventually booked at a jail where he was later released after he posted $100k bail. The duo took time off social media following the incident but both returned showing they were spending time with their daughter individually. Ronnie reemerged with Ariana at Disney World, while Jen showed her at the pumpkin patch.
Following the drama, Jen Harley put Ronnie Ortiz Magro on blast for allegedly cheating on her with her friend. The “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” star’s ex-girlfriend took to social media to slam him and warned fans that there were so many women that she’s “used to it” by now. She also posted a cryptic message about someone being a narcissist, which many took as a shot at Ronnie. Jen Harley has since moved on from Ronnie and is sporting a new attitude and a new ‘do to match.
