<p><span></span><strong>Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi</strong> and her boyfriend, <strong>Jionni LaValle</strong>, have axed their relationship after almost eight months. <em>Life & Style</em> has learned exclusively that the two broke up after Jionni's visit to Florence, Italy, over the weekend. "Snooki and her boyfriend have split up," a source tells <em>Life & Style</em>. "He went to visit her in Italy this past week. They fought a lot while he was there and have called it quits."</p>
The couple began dating in the fall after Snooki met Jionni in New Jersey while she filmed season three of Jersey Shore. But while in Florence, the two got into a public fight over an incident at a club. While the duo kissed and made up the next day, they realized shortly after that distance and trust were still issues between them, and ended things.
"He said it was hard for them to be apart, and that with the whole world knowing her past, he finds it very hard to trust her," a second source close to Jionni confirms to Life & Style. "He said that as far as he was concerned, if she did anything wrong in Italy, it was over."
And although there are no reports of any wrongdoing on Snooki's part, Jionni just could not handle the distance between them. "When he got back from Italy, he called a mutual friend [of ours] and said that they had broken up," adds the source. "I think he was just really sad about being away from her so much. I'm not sure who broke up with whom -- it seems to be mutual because of the distance and the time apart."
