Toms River Police have charged Jenni "J-Woww" Farley's ex-boyfriend Thomas Lippolis with allegedly trying to extort $25,000.00 from Farley in exchange for not divulging secrets to the media about her.

Farley went to Toms River Police on Monday of this week to report the incident.

Police say this information had been given to Farley through her publicist who had initially received a phone call from Lippolis demanding the money.

On Wednesday, Toms River Detectives Tom Grosse and Jon Turner initiated an investigation into these allegations and shortly after arrested Lippolis who is charged with 3rd Degree Extortion.

Farley and Lippolis dated for about a year almost a decade ago.
