TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) — Toms River police on Wednesday charged Thomas Lippolis, a former boyfriend of a “Jersey Shore” cast member Jenni “JWoww” Farley, with third-degree extortion for seeking $25,000 for not divulging secrets to the media.

Police say Lippolis had dated cast member Jenni “JWoww” Farley for close to a year 10 years ago. Police say Farley’s publicist had received a call from Lippolis demanding money in exchange for his silence. It could not be determined if Lippolis has a lawyer.
