Ronnie Ortiz-Magro apparently needs help keeping his baby mama, Jen Harley, away. The Jersey Shore star filed for a restraining order against Jen after she allegedly got violent and attacked him in his Las Vegas home.

A judge has granted Ronnie with an emergency order for protection against domestic violence. The order remains in effect through February 25, according to the reality star’s attorney.

Ronnie Called Police After Jen Attacked

At around 6 pm on Saturday evening, Ronnie called the police to report that his ex, Jen Harley, had struck him in the face. After officers arrived at his Las Vegas home, Ronnie explained that he came home from a photoshoot to take a nap, and was woken up by an infuriated Jen.

Jen had apparently been rifling through Ronnie’s trash, because she was accusing him of cheating after finding another woman’s makeup.

That’s when Jen got physical. She was striking Ronnie in the face and trying to poke him in the eye. Ronnie was left with some cuts and bruising on his face.

Jen had already left the scene by the time officers had arrived, and she has not been arrested for the incident, which is still under investigation.

After the attack, Ronnie went to court to file a restraining order against Jen.

Ronnie Has Been Granted an Emergency Order for Protection

“Ronnie immediately called the Las Vegas Police Department and filed a domestic violence complaint against Jennifer,” Ronnie’s attorney said in a statement. “A Family Court Judge in the Clark County (Las Vegas, NV) District court, Family Division granted Ronnie an Emergency Order for Protection Against Domestic Violence. This Emergency Order is in effect until February 25, 2020.”

However, Jen’s attorney Lisa Bloom said that Jen has yet to be served with any restraining order. She also claims that Jen already had a restraining order in place against Ronnie.

“Contact that Ronnie Ortiz had with Jen Harley recently was in violation of the restraining order in effect against him,” Lisa claims in her statement, and continues, “We have not received any restraining order against her, and if Jen does get served with one, we will oppose it.”

“Jen just wants to raise her baby in peace.”
