Just because Roger Mathewsand Jenni “JWoww” Farley officially ended their four-year marriage, doesn’t mean that there’s any bad blood between the pair. In fact, only days after finalizing their divorce on August 29, the 44-year-old single dad defended his former flame against an Instagram troll who attacked her parenting. Scroll through the gallery below to get the full scoop!
Thankfully, Roger decided not to feed into the negativity and shot the troll down. “Be nice, everyone. Jeez. It’s not that hard,” he replied. “It’s social media. A snapshot of real life. A moment in time. That’s it. Nothing more.”
As it happens, this isn’t the first time that Roger has spoken kindly about Jenni, 33, and their split. “Thursday 8-29-19 I was officially divorced and I’m excited for what the future brings as a single dad,” he told Us Weekly.
“You can’t have the good without the bad and I’m so looking forward to so many positive things with my kids,” he continued. “They are who kept me grounded and focused through it all and they have always been my priority and focus.”
“It takes far more effort and energy to be negative than to be positive and that’s my focus both for myself and my children,” Roger also noted, before concluding with, “Positive growth. Onwards and upwards! God bless.”
Considering how ~in love~ Jenni and Zach look, we’re relieved to hear that Roger is A-OK with their situation. After all, they may be “family” one day. Not only has Jenni introduced both of her kids to Zach, but she’s also become quite close with his family. In fact, the pair were spotted celebrating Zach’s mom’s 50th birthday in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on August 15.
“Jenni and Zack seemed very happy and had a wonderful time celebrating,” a source told Life & Style at the time. “They all enjoyed dinner at Martorano’s, which is one of the top Italian restaurants in Atlantic City, and one of the Jersey Shore fam’s faves.”
