Jenni Farley, better known by her Jersey Shore nickname JWoww, has released a letter accusing her estranged husband Roger Mathews of abuse, and also posted a clip allegedly depicting Farley throwing her to the ground.


In a long letter posted to her website, the 32-year-old leveled a number of allegations against Mathews:

“You are an abuser to the core, Roger Mathews…. 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.”


Farley and Mathews separated in 2018 after three years of marriage. In the letter, she accuses Mathews of a long list of offenses, including contacting ex-boyfriend Thomas Lippolis, who she said physically abused her, as well as calling the authorities to “falsely accuse me of harming our children.”

In addition to the letter, Farley also posted multiple videos that appear to show her and Mathews fighting; in one of them, it looks like he throws her to the ground.

In December, Farley got a temporary restraining order against Mathews that resulted in him leaving their house.
