‘Jersey Shore’ Star Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi & Husband Jionni LaValle Finally Address Divorce Rumors

“Wanna stay together? Yeah, sure.”

For the past few months, the tabloids have been buzzing that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her husband Jionni LaValle have (or plan to) split, but the Jersey Shore couple is now attempting to put the divorce rumors to rest.

Jionni posted a message on his Instagram on Tuesday explaining that he and Nicole are not splitting up. He also explained that the reason he’s been keeping a low profile in recent months is because he doesn’t want to be a reality TV star anymore.

(Fans will remember that Jionni had no problem cashing those reality TV show paychecks for years. He not only appeared on ‘Jersey Shore,’ but also was a main character on ‘Snooki & JWOWW’ and ‘Nicole & Jionni’s Shore Flip.’ It appears, though, that he’s had a change of heart recently.)

“Hey guys I’m going to visit this subject one time and one time only so…” he began his Instagram message. “I am choosing to not be on TV because I simply do not like it.”

After assuring fans that he and Nicole are “doing great” and are happily raising their two kids together, Jionni explained that the reality TV game is not for him, and that his mug will not be making an appearance on the soon-to-come ‘Jersey Shore’ season.

“You will not see me on [Nicole’s] reality show,” Jionni wrote. “Being a reality star is never something I wanted to be when I grew up. I own my own business and I work hard at it and that’s what I do. My wife is a reality star and she works hard at that, that’s what she does. We are NOT divorced.”

Nicole, who married Jionni in November 2014, echoed her husband’s sentiments in the comment section of his Instagram post.

“I love you beyond words & so lucky to have you,” she wrote. “As long as we know what we have, screw everybody else…You’re my world.”

The divorce rumors really started circulating last month, when Nicole posted Christmas photos of her and the kids that Jionni was noticeably absent from. She attempted to squash split rumors in the comment sections of the photos at the time. In recent weeks, she has posted more photos that feature Jionni, probably in an attempt to shut up the split rumors.

This is not the first time the couple has faced split rumors. Back in 2015, Jionni was reportedly linked to an email address that was subscribed to the affair website AshleyMadison.com. (The emails were exposed when the website was hacked. Ol’ Josh Duggar was another famous person on the list of website subscribers.) Nicole later addressed the story, calling it “absurd.”

  1. Their kids are sooooooo cute! And happy.
    Nicole has come a long ways, i looked at her instagram after this news and she killing it working out.

    Man Pauly and JWoww looked so plastic now, it’s crazy that ‘Snooki’ is the most stable healthy one.


  2. I think you emphasized the wrong word there, bro… we ARE not divorced? How about we are NOT divorced? Freudian slip?


  3. Notice he typed “…we ARE not divorced…” Shouldn’t he have said …”we are NOT divorced…”? Seems to me he emphasized the wrong word. Unless…


    1. Literally just wrote the same thing and then read your comment… could go either way – we know English is not their strong suit!


  4. I just have a feeling he is fed up with his wife’s ‘fame’. And I get that, even though he was in it for years but now being over 30 (I assume he is older than Snooki who was 30 last year I believe) he just doesn’t feel like this is for him anymore. At least someone who grew up and got fed up with it.


    1. At the same time… Is Snooki qualified to do anything else? It’s good for him if he doesn’t want to be on reality TV and has other opportunities to provide for his kids. That said, I think it’s mature of Snooki to continue to do reality TV if that’s what provides what she wants for their kids (and being on TV allows her to bring in a lot of money while still being at home for the most part with her kids) – because at the end of the day it’s about making sure your kids are fed and loved… and no one can deny those kids are happy, healthy and loved.
