TOMS RIVER – An ex-boyfriend of a Jersey Shore star was charged with trying to extort money from her.
Jenni L. Farley reported to Toms River Police on Dec. 17 that ex Thomas Lippolis had attempted to extort $25,000 from her in exchange for not divulging secrets about her to the media.
Farley’s publicist had allegedly receive a phone call from Lippolis, demanding that money.
Farley and Lippolis dated for almost a year about 10 years ago.
Toms River Detectives Tom Grosse and Jon Turner on Wednesday initiated an investigation into these allegations. Lippolis was arrested and charged with third-degree extortion.
