On December 14, Farley shared on Instagram that she was granted a temporary order of protection against Mathews. Farley’s post also stated that she would not be commenting further on her divorce.

During this same time, Mathews took to Instagram, posting a series of videos explaining his side of the situation. Some of the videos were taken while he was riding in the back of a cop car. “You guys are about to learn the truth and I promise you,” he wrote in one video’s caption.

In an effort to dispel some of what Mathews was talking about in his Instagram videos, fellow “Jersey Shore” star Nicole Polizzi Instagrammed a now-deleted video of Farley reportedly on the phone with police officers. Polizzi captioned the video “I’ve decided to post this video because Jenni’s intentions were to never keep the kids from Roger,” adding, “[Jenni] always tries to keep her situations off social media for the sake of the kids, but her voice needs to be heard too.”

In the video, OK! reported that Farley could be heard saying that she doesn’t want to fight for sole custody of her children, saying Mathews is “not a bad dad.”

Following Polizzi’s Instagram, Mathews responded to one of the comments on the since-deleted video, as per USA Today’s reports. “Nicole has never spent a single night in our home in 8 years,” Mathews wrote in the captured response. “You will see the truth come out in the end … She should stay out of matters that do not concern her.”
