Amanda Markert is trying to sell texts from the former Jersey Shore star, whose real name is Paul DelVecchio, in which he asked her to end the pregnancy.
DelVecchio was reportedly concerned over the way the child was conceived -- his relationship with Markert was just a one-night stand -- but has since tried to get involved in 5-month-old Amabella Sophia's life, even fighting for custody.
Markert also allegedly took the money for an abortion, and then decided to keep the child and the money.
After news of the supposed texts surfaced, DelVecchio tweeted a message that appears to be a response:
