's ex-boyfriend Emilio Masella has backtracked on recent comments that he made about her reported pregnancy.
Masella was quoted as saying that he hoped the Jersey Shore
star miscarried her baby if she is expecting, as has been reported. He also suggested that she should get a pregnancy test to ascertain who the father of the child is.
However, Masella has now moved to clarify his comments, saying that he believes the 24-year-old reality star is too young to be a mother.
Speaking to TMZ Live
, he said: "What I meant by 'miscarriage' was that... I hope she does not have a child. I didn't wish a miscarriage upon her, because that's really tragic, and it's not a good thing to have a miscarriage. I had a teacher in high school who had two... so I know how traumatising it is for women.
"I hope maybe the pregnancy test was defective, or maybe she read it wrong, or it's a huge publicity stunt... if she is really pregnant with this kid I guess I'm going to have to cut all strings with her and never associate with her again."> 'Jersey Shore' episode 9 recap: 'The Truth Will Set You Free'
When pressed further about his original choice of words, Masella said: "It must have come out the wrong way... I would never wish [a miscarriage] upon anyone, not even my worst enemy."
He also said that he thinks Snooki is "too young" to be a mother, adding: "I think that this kid is not in it for her, and I just don't think that she's ready to be having a child."
It was recently reported that Snooki has become engaged to boyfriend Jionni LaValle
