Jenni Farley, best known as “JWoww” from Jersey Shore, posted a message to her ex-husband Roger Mathews accusing him of abuse on her Instagram late Tuesday. A longer statement with screenshots of text messages and videos of the alleged abuse was posted to her website.

In the post, she detailed abusive behavior she endured from her estranged husband.

“You are an abuser to the core, Roger Mathews,” she wrote on her website. “You have spit at me. You have pushed me. You have shoved me. You have aggressively thrown me to the ground. You have prevented me from closing doors to escape having you coming at me. You have belittled and disparaged me. You have threatened me.”

In her statement, she criticizes Matthews for threatening her with video footage of the two of them arguing at home and criticizes his public-facing Instagrams with his son.

“So you have embarked on a crusade to abuse me and place me and the kids in harm’s way. Still a praiseworthy father and husband?”


The couple separated last year after three years of marriage. They have two kids together, who Farley said have been put in harm’s way by Mathews behavior. In December, she got a temporary restraining order against Mathews, which led to him being removed from their home.
The reality star ended the letter by saying she will be a “victim no longer” and will stay strong for their kids.
