Who is Zack Carpinello?

Farley posted a few pictures on her social media with Carpinello, excluding his face, and her fans started to wonder who the mystery person could be. Her rep commented that she did, in fact, “move on” from ex-husband Roger Matthews. Farley also confirmed the new man in her life on Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s podcast; It’s Happening With Snooki and Joey. A close source then disclosed the man’s identity as Zack Clayton Carpinello.

Carpinello is a wrestler from New York who performs under the name Zack Clayton. He has four years of experience and aspires to be in the WWE. He has wrestled in smaller promotion companies but hasn’t seen much success yet.

Carpinello is also the brother of her friend, Erica, who she’s known since she was 15-years-old. He attended Farley and Roger’s marriage in 2015, so he met her kids before they started dating.

Matthews has also given his stamp of approval on the relationship, adding he seems like a good guy. Even though they are currently in a bitter custody and divorce battle, Roger says he’s happy for Farley.

She also said Meilani Alexandra, her four-year-old daughter, knows him as “Erica’s friend.” She says they like Carpinello but doesn’t “want it to be an awkward transition” for the kids, so they know him as a close friend.

Additionally, Carpinello hangs out with the kids often, and her daughter has known him for a couple of years now. Even though he and Farley have known each other for years, they didn’t become anything more than friends until recently.
