Who is Sammi Sweetheart's boyfriend on 'Jersey Shore'?

Since Sammi left the original Jersey Shore in 2012, she has had multiple relationships. She was no longer in the public eye as much as the other cast members who remained in the franchise. However, Sammi has maintained a fan base that followed her personal life. This is especially true for her dating life, post-Ronnie and the toxic environment the two shared during the majority of Jersey Shore.

Now, Sammi is dating a guy by the name of Justin May. His Instagram doesn't give too many clues about who he is outside of someone who frequents clubs, both indoor and outdoor, and has adoration for Sammi, but he definitely looks like Sammi's type. And he appears to have a close relationship with his family.
