That woman has belatedly come forward with her side of the story. According to her, Jionni wanted a woman on the side to fool around with. Although, the couple is strongly denying these claims.
The Florida native, 26, claims Jionni tried to hook up with her last year. She alleges of how they met at a club in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in March for his 27th birthday with his guy friends, “We were dancing together and flirting, and then he asked me for my number.” She told InTouch of his demeanor, “Jionni didn’t act like he was getting married. He definitely acted single.”
She continued, “As soon as we left the club, he started texting me, asking me to come back to the boat they were partying on. I didn’t. It was clear he wanted more.” Adding, “The next night, I met up with Jionni and his friends for dinner. He told me he wanted to have a girl down here on the side that he could visit.” The woman says she was turned off as Jionni was trying too hard so she eventually left the dinner.
“Afterward, he kept texting me and asking me to come back to his hotel room, but I didn’t reply,” she claims, adding, “he was ready to cheat. I wanted no part of it.”
The tabloid claims that despite the wedding, Snooki and Jionni have been having problems for a while. A source claimed, “They fight about everything from the kids to what to have for dinner… She and Jionni have been getting into blowout fights for years. No one thought they’d last this long.”
Although her rep initially offered no comment, Snooki has responded to this story. She called it a fabrication pointing out that InTouch sat on the story for a year before releasing it. Waiting until Snooki and her man got married (possibly to inflict maximum damage on their family).
She tweeted: “FYI,this BS story intouch is posting is a lie & ‘told’ LAST summer LOL. Lost all respect for that magazine. My man ain’t goin nowhere #shady.”
