If you’ve been keeping up with Jersey Shore Family Vacation, you’ll know that 2019 has been quite the year for cast member Ronnie Magro. Not only is he involved in a relatively rocky relationship with Jen Harley, but he’s also dealing with being a new father, and some substance abuse issues.

Although it was never a secret that Magro may have struggled with alcoholism on the Jersey Shore, he eventually realized that he needed help. So, earlier in 2019, the reality film star checked into rehab with the hope to change his life for the better.

He checked into rehab in February, and fans congratulated him on his six months of sobriety not long ago. However, it appears that he may have fallen off the wagon at the 2019 VMAs. Attending the award ceremony with an unidentified male friend, sources claim that he wasn’t even making an effort to conceal his drinking.

One witness claims that he was ordering spiked lemonades at a standing bar inside and was later seen sitting at a bar. Although you don’t have to be drinking to sit at a bar, sources claim that he was back to his old behavior that was usually the result of drinking.

Possibly going through some drama, Magro was supposedly on the hunt to take some shots. Although nothing has been confirmed, these rumors came as a shock considering he has recently finished rehab. He had even made a point on several occasions to express how thankful he was to everybody that helped him and for his sobriety.
