Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino Is Back in Court With Ex-Management Firm
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has gotten into plenty of trouble through the years on Jersey Shore, but issues before the show were what landed him in court back in 2011.
Before he ever stepped foot in the Shore House, he was represented by Gotham NYC Entertainment, but when he hit it big on the MTV reality series, he dropped ‘em like a hot potato and moved on to bigger and better things. The company proceeded to sue, then he sued back, but ultimately, they struck a confidential settlement last year and The Sitch could breathe easy.
Well, that is, until now!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gotham NYC is trying to drag Mike back into court because he failed to make the final payment on a “$250K agreement to make the dispute go away.” In turn, his ex-management company “filed new claims in New York Supreme Court, seeking amounts due.”
The full amount was divided into eight installments, and the final $35,000 payment was due on Jan. 1. However, Mike didn’t pay up, and Gotham’s recent motion for summary judgement stated, “As of Feb. 15, 2013, Defendants have failed to make this payment.” Plus, he doesn’t just owe that money — the agreement allows for an extra pre-judgement 9 percent interest rate, plus attorney’s fees and other legal expenses. Eek!
The Situation’s attorney, Richard C. Wolfe, told THR that Mike has now made the last settlement payment, but the other expenses could land him back in court again. Well, the upside is that we may see him in a suit...
