The Situation Sues Abercrombie & Fitch
A career outside of reality TV star is clearly not in the cards for Jersey Shore cast mate Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino. And although he made bank in 2010 and scored a $100,000 per episode in season 4, true to his nature, Situation is still scheming up ways to make more cash.
Because he is clearly crying poor while driving on Ocean Drive in Miami, FL in a $300,000 Lamborgini with a busty blonde yesterday.
According to Reuters, The Situation officially filed papers Tuesday in Florida Federal Court against Abercrombie & Fitch, charging that the company infringed on his “Situation” and “GTL” trademarks. This suit follows A&F’s publicity ploy in August where they claimed to have offered Sitch money to not wear their brand.
“Starting in August 2011, Defendant (the company) embarked on a grand, worldwide advertising campaign using Sorrentino’s name, image and likeness to create brand awareness for its products by falsely claiming that Defendant had offered money to Sorrentino if he would stop wearing Defendant’s goods,” the lawsuit states. “That offer was never made to Sorrentino, nor was it ever conveyed to Sorrentino by a representative.”
Guess I should return my A&F Jersey Shore branded gear of “GTL … You Know the Deal” and “The Fitchuation.” According to TMZ, the reality star wants at least $4 million in damages.
