Ronnie Ortiz-Magro‘s baby mama, Jen Harley, has a powerful woman in her corner … after hiring Lisa Bloom to rep her amid a tumultuous domestic violence case.
Lisa spoke with us Friday in L.A. after she and Jen attended a hearing in Ronnie’s DV case. Not much happened in court … the next hearing is scheduled February. Jen left the courthouse unnoticed, but Lisa made one thing clear … Jen is a VERY fit parent.
Ronnie went on a tirade against Jen on Instagram last week, accusing her of abandoning their two-year-old-daughter. Lisa says she reached out to Ronnie, demanding he take down the post. Jen currently has a restraining order against Ronnie, and Lisa says any harassment — even on social media — will not be tolerated.
As we reported … Ronnie pled not guilty last month to a laundry list of misdemeanors stemming from an October incident with Jen and their 20-month daughter, Ariana, in L.A. He’s facing 7 misdemeanors — domestic violence, child endangerment, brandishing a weapon, criminal threats, false imprisonment [of Jen] and 2 counts of resisting arrest.
Ronnie was initially arrested for kidnapping after allegedly hitting Jen, chasing her down with a knife, taking their kid from her and then locking himself inside an Airbnb they were renting. Ronnie allegedly refused to come out when police arrived … and they had to bust the door and tase him before slapping cuffs on him and wheeling him out on a gurney.
Jen said she suffered bruises and scrapes from the altercation but Lisa tells us Jen’s soldiering on.
