The Truth About Jenni 'JWoww' Farley's Fiance, Zack Carpinello

Jenni "JWoww" Farley is head-over-heels for her man. However, her journey to finding love again hasn't been easy. According to Us Weekly, JWoww met her then-partner Roger Mathews in 2009 at Seaside Heights while the "Jersey Shore" star was filming Season 1 of the MTV hit series. After several years of dating, the pair tied the knot in October 2015. Even though they spent nearly a decade together, JWoww and Mathews filed for divorce after just three years of marriage in 2018, per TMZ.

"As bad as our relationship got, I stayed f**king quiet, because that's what you're supposed to do," JWoww said during an episode of "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation" (via People). "I didn't want to talk about it publicly, out of respect for my children." In addition to filing for divorce, the reality star also got a temporary restraining order against her ex-husband after the two got into a heated argument, which eventually resulted in the police being called to their home, according to E! News

JWoww and Mathews eventually came to a resolution and finalized their divorce in August 2019, per Page Six. "They remain devoted to co-parenting their children in a happy and healthy environment and they both wish each other the best," according to a statement obtained by the outlet. And, even though JWoww was dealing with a lot during that time, she still managed to find her happy ending through it all. So, who is Zack Carpinello? Here's what we know. 

Zack Carpinello is a professional wrestler

Zack Carpinello may be linked to Jenni "JWoww" Farley, but his true fans know him as Zack Clayton in the ring. According to Brides, the New York native is a professional wrestler for All Elite Wrestling and has been passionate about the sport since his high school days. Carpinello wears many hats and is also an entertainer and businessman, per his official Instagram bio. Aside from wrestling, Carpinello enjoys working out and even created several fitness programs that he sells to people interested in getting into shape. As the owner of Zack Clayton Shop, the athlete sells fitness merchandise like T-shirts, hoodies, and gym gear.

JWoww starting dating Carpinello in April 2019 while she was in the last stages of finalizing her divorce. Although at first they appeared to be inseparable, the couple briefly parted ways after Carpinello was caught getting handsy with JWoww's co-star Angelina Pivarnick in a club, per ET. However, his Vegas slip-up didn't stand a chance against their love, and the two got back together just weeks later. The "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation" star opened up to HollywoodLife about the real reason she chose to make amends with her boyfriend. "It really came down to who that person was during those six months, not who he was during that one night in Vegas." 

In return, they decided to give it another shot and now they've take their relationship to the next level.
