"Jersey Shore" star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is reportedly engaged to on and off boyfriend, Jionni LaValle, and while many fans are wishing the expectant couple well wishes, the reality star's ex-boyfriend is reportedly hoping that she suffers a miscarriage.
The 24-year-old has not yet confirmed her engagement, but was recently photographed flashing a diamond sparkler on her ring finger and what appears to be a baby bump which has led to reports that LaValle has proposed, according to Radar Online.
"I'm not thinking [an engagement] may happen, I know. I'm just waiting for [Jionni] to ask. I'm 24, I've had all the fun I'm ever going to have in my life. I found the right guy, and I'm just waiting for him," Snooki told In Touch Magazine last month.
While it is still unclear how far along Snooki is in her pregnancy, what should undoubtedly be a celebratory time in her and rumored father to be LaValle's lives has been disrupted by explosive claims from ex-boyfriend, Emilio Masella.
Masella, who dated Snooki prior to LaValle, claims that LaValle may not be the father to her unborn child and even went as far as to wish the unborn child harm.
"I hope for [Snooki's] sake ... not to be rude or anything ... but I hope she has a miscarriage," Masella told TMZ after learning of Snooki's pregnancy news.
"When I was with her, she said she wanted twins. She would always say 'Let's have twins. I would def recommend her to get a paternity test to see who the father is because I'm sure there are other subjects"- adding, "Vinny could easily be the father."
Masella was referring to a one night stand that Snooki had with her fellow cast member, Vinny, which he believes calls for a paternity test.
After receiving widespread backlash for his vulgar statements, Masella tried to rectify his remarks.
"What I meant by the statement was that I hope she doesn't have the child. I just hope the test was wrong ... I think she's too young. I don't think this kid is in it for her," Masella said.
Snooki, who some critics suspect is three months pregnant, has not yet responded to Masella's criticisms.
