‘Jersey Shore’ Star JWoww — Then and Now
American television personality JWoww, real name Jenni Farley, first rose to fame as one of the eight main cast members in the MTV reality series Jersey Shore, back in December 2009.
And while she still appears in Jersey Shore’s spinoff shows, a lot has changed between then and now in her personal life.
When she made her television debut, she was 23 and in a relationship with her ex-boyfriend Tom Lippolis. In addition to being her boyfriend, he was also her manager at the time.
JWoww’s Relationship with Tom Lippolis
It is unclear when and how Farley started her relationship with Lippolis, but when she made her debut on the show, she made it known to her roommates that she was already in a relationship.
That said, she also grew close to her fellow roommate, Pauly D, within the first few nights at the shore.
Farley and Pauly D’s growing relationship was also one of the many controversies that took place in the short first season.
Despite that, she didn’t end her romance with her then-boyfriend, Lippolis. She apparently dated him throughout the first two seasons.
But when the cast returned to the shore for season three, she eventually called it quits with Lippolis. After the split, she also accused him of being abusive in their relationship.
JWoww’s Wedding and Divorce with Roger Mathews
Following her split with Lippolis, JWoww met her future husband, Roger Mathews, at Karma, a nightclub in New Jersey.
The pair hit it off and subsequently welcomed their daughter, Meilani, on July 13, 2014. At the time, they had not tied the knot.
That changed a year later, as they had their wedding ceremony in the presence of their close friends and family members in October 2015.
The wedding became even more special with the announcement of their second child. The second child, son Greyson, was later born on May 5, 2016.

But suddenly, in September 2018, Farley filed for divorce from Mathews, citing irreconcilable differences.
The pair were also rumored to have a toxic relationship, like Farley’s previous relationship, and reportedly were involved in both verbal and physical abuse.
Their divorce was finalized in August 2019, with both agreeing to co-parent their two kids together.
JWoww Exchanged an Engagement Ring With Zack Carpinello
Farley again found love after another heartbreak, and this time she found love in professional wrestler Zack Carpinello.
In March 2021, she shocked her friends and followers when she announced that she had gotten engaged to him.
The pair is also expected to star together in the upcoming season of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.
Besides, Farley and Carpinello are regularly seen together on each other’s social media posts. In addition, the pro wrestler is also very close to the reality TV star’s son and daughter.
For instance, he shared a picture of him and Greyson on December 27, 2021, showing the gifts they recently purchased online.
Similarly, on October 28, 2021, the Jersey Shore star grammed a series of professionally captured family snaps featuring herself, her new beau, and her two kids.
