Say it ain’t so! On Sept. 27, reports surfaced that Jenni “JWoww” Farley had called it quits with her husband of about three years, Roger Mathews. App reported that Jenni filed for divorce on Sept. 12 in Superior Court in Ocean County, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.
Shortly after news broke, Roger took to Instagram to confirm the news. “My wife filed for divorce… it’s true, I’m just gonna keep it simple,” he said in the video. “I don’t blame her. There’s no cheating or any dumb s–t, any juicy details, it’s… she just grew tired of the repetitive pattern that we fell into … again, I’m not gonna get into detail, but it was a repetitive pattern and not a good one.”
However, Roger assured fans that he wasn’t “done fighting” for her. “I’m gonna win my wife back, I’m gonna win her affection back, I’m gonna win her love back,” he continued. “I have no intention of being a single dad. We’re in counseling, so there’s hope. It ain’t over til the fat lady sings.”
According to documents filed by JWoww, “The Plaintiff and the Defendant have irreconcilable differences which have caused the breakdown of the marriage for a period of at least six months which make it appear that the marriage should be dissolved and that there is no prospect of reconciliation.”
The duo shares two children, son Greyson, 2, and spunky little Meilani, who is four years old. While it’s been a while since we’ve seen the couple together, they are both incredibly proud of their little ones, who they post photos and videos of constantly on social media.
While fans are definitely shocked by the news, social media may have held clues that something was wrong. For example, Roger’s Instagram bio says, “Good father. Horrible husband. Worst lover ever. 10 foot tall and bulletproof. Figuring life out.” It’s unclear when he changed this, or whether or not it was meant to be a joke, but it certainly takes on new meaning in the wake of the split news.
The last time Roger posted a photo with Jenni was on Aug. 7, and it was an old photo. “Throw back to when we were three. This is my favorite hairstyle on my wife btw,” he captioned it. The last time Jenni posted a video with Roger was on a family outing with their kids on Aug. 14, where they were driving around in the car together and bumping showtunes.
Fans of the couple are crushed. “JWoww and Roger are getting a divorce wtf,” wrote one sad fan. Another tweeted, “JWOWW AND ROGER ???????????????? my soul is crushed.” A third agreed, writing, “Really sad for Jwoww and Rodger. I loved them together ?.” We wish them the best in this difficult time.
