The Situation: Sued By Managers For $1 Million

by at . Comments

Quite a day for Mike Sorrentino news.

First, The Situation left Jersey Shore for unknown reasons, with no return in sight. Now his managers have just filed a $1 million lawsuit, alleging that they were wrongfully dumped after turning a complete nobody into a megastar.

Gotham NYC Entertainment filed the suit today, claiming Sitch dumped them back in May "due to lack of performance," but legally could not.

According to the lawsuit, he was contractually required to give Gotham 30 days notice and a chance to correct any issues. Gotham claims it got neither.

Therefore, they say, Sorrentino is in breach of contract.

Having managed Situation since the 2009 premiere of Jersey Shore, Gotham claims it not only "discovered" the Staten Island product, but transformed "his career from relative obscurity to become an international celebrity."

Gotham is suing for damages in excess of $1 million.

No comment yet from the reality star's camp, which recently settled a legal dispute - with his own dad. It's also unclear why he bolted the Shore house or whether he'll return. We'll have to stay tuned on both fronts ...
