Who Is Zack Carpinello? New Details On JWoww's 24-Year-Old Boyfriend

Jenni “JWoww” Farley and her new man are Instagram official. The Jersey Shore star has been hinting that she had a new love in her life since a cryptic post showing a man’s arm but no identifying informtion. Now we know that 34-year-old Farley is involved with an pro-wrestler named Zack Clayton Carpinello who, at 24, is ten years her junior. Who is Zack Clayton Carpinello? Read on for all the details.

1. First hint

The first clue fans had that the reality star had a new love in her life was an Insta story where she showed her arm holding a drink next to an unidentified man’s arm in the shot and the caption “Cheers to the weekend.” There was a lot of speculation about who the new suitor could be but neither Farley nor her reps were willing to name names at the time.

2. Confirmation

This past weekend, E! News reposted that Farley and Carpinello stepped out officially for the first time on a date to Universal Studios Orlando. The reality star posted to her Instagram saying: “Best day ever @universalorlando. I’ve been waiting 11 years to come back here and I've been dying to go to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I can't wait to come back with my kids when they're big enough #readyforuniversal.” In a picture on her Instagram story, Falriey posted a selfie with Zach beside her as he drove the two of them in a car.

3. Wrester

People magazine reports that  Zack Clayton Carpinello is a 24-year-old pro wrestler from Bethlehem, New York, near Albany. He was a high school football player who graduated in 2013. After high school, he enrolled in  In Your Face Wrestling Academy in Albany, where he had his first professional bout. Since then he has wrestled in New York City in the Spanish leagues Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) and Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide (AAA), which has gotten him televised on Telemundo. So far the WWE hasn’t picked him up but the boost to his profile from dating Farley might help out.

4. Messy divorce

The new love is a breath fo fresh air for Farley, who has been going through a contentious divorce from husband Roger Mathews. Since Farley first filed for divorce in 2018, the pair have had a number of incidents which have caused escalating tensions. One incident involved Farley calling the police to escort Mathews from the house. He posted a series of complaints about her on social media, accusing her of hostility toward him. By early 2019, she had had enough and wrote a post saying: “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.”

5. Truce

After all the drama between Farley and her ex, he finally tried to extend an olive branch to her so they could move on for the sake of their children. InTouch reported that in February, he posted: “I am not a monster. We’ve both embarrassed ourselves out of anger. Let’s stop the madness. Let’s stop the anger. Let’s stop the lies. Let’s work together for our children. Let’s write a book one day on the wrongs we have committed and how we bettered ourselves. At the very least try and be friends.”  Since that olive branch the former couple has appeared in public together at events for their kids, such as an Easter egg hunt. Reps for Farley were quick to clarify that the event was just a family affair, not a reconciliation, saying: “Jenni’s kids’ needs and wants will always come first. She is being an adult about the divorce and working towards being better coparents. As far as the divorce, there is no reconciliation in the future and she is excited about continuing to move on with her life

6. Snooki approved

Jenni’s long time costar Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has nothing but good things to say about her friend’s new beau. According to InTouch, Snooki says: “He’s very handsome, by the way. Jenni has been going through some [s–t], but I’ve never seen this girl more happier and more herself than this moment right now.”

Snooki and JWoww are still besties.

7. No regrets

As for Jenni herself, she is very direct about the situations. InTouch reports that she she says ““I wish it was over, but it’s not, so I decided to move on, and I moved on with a 24-year-old. Life is a [f–king] roller coaster, but it’s very enjoyable. I’m living my best life right now.”
