Yet another ‘Jersey Shore’ cast member is facing a lawsuit with a very hefty price tag. Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino’s former mangers are suing the reality star for $1 million.
What caused their business relationship to sour? According to TMZ, Gotham NYC Entertainment is claiming Sorrentino breached their contract when he fired them in May for “lack of performance.”
The management company says the ‘Jersey Shore’ star failed to give them the required 30-day notice to fix any problems before he terminated their services.
Gotham says they have served as Sorrentino’s managers since ‘The Jersey Shore’ premiered on MTV in 2009 and have helped him take “his career from relative obscurity to become an international celebrity.”
The Situation isn’t the only MTV star facing a lawsuit. His ‘Jersey Shore’ castmate Paul ‘Pauly D’ DelVecchio was slapped with a $4 million lawsuit by a Connecticut DJ earlier this month.
Though the $1 million suit is looming over his head, Sorrentino most likely has the cash to shell out should he lose. The reality star reported made bank filming the fourth season of the MTV show in Italy, bringing in $100,000 per episode.
But Sorrentino might not be fist pumping at the beach for much longer. According to new reports, The Situation has decided to leave the infamous shore house early — bailing on the fifth season of the reality shore just like fellow cast member Vinny Guadagnino did last week.
