Less than a month before the premiere of Jersey Shore, cast stalwart Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is keeping the South Florida justice system busy.
The 30-year-old goomba-in-chief is involved in four – count ‘em, four! – lawsuits here.
He’s going after three companies that allegedly owe him money, and he’s being sued in the fourth case for not keeping his trademark rock-hard abs hard enough!
“Season 6 is coming (it premieres on MTV Oct. 4) and he’s expected to become the alpha male on the show again,” said Richard Wolfe, his busy lawyer. “A lot of people tried to take advantage of Mike, and my job is to make sure they don’t.”
Why is it all going down here?
Sorrentino’s a part-time resident of Miami Beach!
Wolfe filed two suits on the same day, Aug. 23, in Miami-Dade Circuit Court.
The actions, against nightclub promoting Diversified Group and apparel company Headrush Brand are for non-payment of a total $200,000 in promotional fees.
In one instance, The Sitch says Headrush was to give a custom-built motorcycle after a dog-and-pony announcement. However Headrush, according to the suit, didn’t ship the chopper to his other place in New Jersey as promised.
Sorrentino, meanwhile, is famously suing clothier Abercrombie & Fitch in Miami’s federal court for allegedly using his likeness without permission.
In the one case in which Sorrentino’s is a defendant, the maker of an anti-fat cream wants back $150,000 it paid Sorrentino.
Shortly after inking the deal, Sorrentino checked into drug rehab!
“Mike has a great mind for business,” Wolfe said.
