Earlier today, it was reported that Snooki’s hubby, Jionni LaValle, has an e-mail address that matched an Ashley Madison account. While many assumed that Jionni was looking for some action on the side, an e-mail address linked to Ashley Madison doesn’t necessarily mean the owner of the email personally signed up for the service. In fact, as one Ashley Madison hacking website pointed out, “Ashley Madison did not validate account email addresses.”
“It is quite possible someone else accidentally or deliberately registered using your email address rather than their own,” the site explains. “You’d be amazed how many people apparently don’t know their own email addresses, so don’t panic if you mysteriously find your email address on the list, especially if you have a common name.”
However, because of the attention given the ongoing Ashley Madison fallout, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has decided to address the rumors head on. Here’s her full statement:
This morning when I got a call from my publicist that a story was going to be printed on my husband “allegedly” signing up on Ashley Madison, I laughed- and said lets not even comment and give the story any juice, because it couldn’t be any further from the truth. But now seeing how it’s the “news of the day” and everyone is wondering what I think about it- here it is. Jionni is the the most humble, respectful, and most loyal souls I know. I mean hello, that’s why I married him. He’s a stand up guy who loves his family more than anything in this world. The fact that the tabloids can deliberately make stories up and print things like “Jionni LaValle ALLEGEDLY and MAY HAVE signed up on Ashley Madison” is absurd. I can see if there is proof in the story to make it legitimate, but to accuse my husband of something he had no idea about… HOW IS THAT LEGAL? I really didn’t even want to acknowledge this absurd story, but when my family is being bashed for no reason- mama bear is gonna say what’s up. So no, my husband didn’t sign up on that website to cheat on me. Honestly, if he wanted to cheat- he would go out and do it. Not sign up on a website and pay for it. Jionni is a good guy and doesn’t need his name being tarnished. Nor does our family. We did nothing wrong to deserve this. So with all of this said, I love you babe. And even though I’m a pain in your ass, I know you would never cheat on me. Especially on a lame ass website
Snooki ended her sentiment with heart emoijs, a #myfamilyrocks hashtag, and the following photo of she and Jionni dancing happily at their wedding.
Is Snooki’s statement enough to convince you that Jionni isn’t an Ashley Madison user?
