There's growing speculation that Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and fiancée Saffire Matos have split up after a new social media image showed her without her engagement ring.
In a recent photo posted to her Instagram Story, the cosmetologist held up her golden doodle puppy for a selfie. The fact that she was sans ring raised eyebrows, but her caption seemed more telling.
"Me and my one and only love," she captioned the photo. The picture is no longer available, but The Sun shared a screengrab on Jan. 24.
Further fueling the breakup rumors, Ronnie and Saffire are both fiercely active on social media, yet he last appeared on her Instagram in October 2021, while she hasn't appeared on his page since early December 2021.
Saffire and the "Jersey Shore" star got engaged last June during a romantic beach picnic in Los Angeles.
The couple's romance hasn't exactly been a fairytale. In April 2021, the reality TV star was arrested after Saffire called 911 during an argument that turned physical. Once officers arrived, they noticed "visible marks on Saffire's body" and determined that Ronnie was the aggressor, a report said. However, she would go on to downplay the issue and the duo clearly worked through their differences (as evidenced by the engagement).
Last fall, Ronnie caught a huge break in court when a judge opted not to toss him in jail. Ironically, the judge put a three-year protective order in place so he couldn't harass or intimidate Saffire.
The arrest could have easily spelled doom for Ronnie, as he is currently on probation for a different domestic violence incident in L.A. involving his ex Jen Harley, with whom he shares a 3-year-old daughter. Ronnie made a plea deal in the 2019 case, which requires him to keep his nose clean through 2023.
