LaValle, 27, is the latest celebrity to be exposed as probably having used the site, which facilitates extramarital affairs. Other stars whose information was connected to the site include Josh Duggar and Josh Taekman, husband of Real Housewives of New York City star Kristen Taekman.
LaValle and Snooki, 28, were married last November and have two children together: Lorenzo, who turns 3 on Wednesday, and Giovanna, 10 months. Reports that LaValle may have cheated or was looking to cheat have dogged the couple for months, but Snooki has adamantly denied them.
FYI,this BS story intouch is posting is a lie & "told" LAST summer LOL. Lost all respect for that magazine. My man ain't goin nowhere#shady— Nicole Polizzi (@snooki) January 7, 2015
Earlier, representatives for Snooki told People that the couple is not addressing the Ashley Madison rumor. The reality star, however, eventually took to Instagram to post a touching photo of her and her husband that included a lengthy caption defending his and her family's honor. Take a look:
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. @jlavalle5 💕 #myfamilyrocks
Meanwhile, the former Jersey Shore star has spoken out about Josh Duggar's wife Anna's decision to stick by him, despite both his child molestation scandal and admission of infidelity.
"He called himself a hypocrite, and he said, 'I'm ashamed of myself,'" Polizzi said on Tuesday's episode of her Naturally Nicole podcast. "His wife is still standing by him. Like, what the f--- is wrong with you? Like, what are you doing?"
Last week, hackers released the personal data of more than 37 million Ashley Madison subscribers. The Toronto Police Department is investigating the hack, amid speculation that two suicides have been tied to the leak.
