The following situation is a dire one for Mike Sorrentino.
Sources have confirmed to TMZ that the former Jersey Shore star has been indicted for tax fraud. According to the United States Attorney, Sorrentino – best known as The Situation to, well, everybody – failed to pay the full tax bill on $8.9 million in earnings.
This is where we stop to shake our heads over the fact that Sorrentino has raked in at least $8.9 million over the course of his “career.”
Prosecutors, who have also charged Sorrentino’s brother with the same allegations, claim The Situation intentionally filed fraudulent returns in order to make it appear he was square with the IRS.
Ouch. Teresa Giudice may be proud of Sitch for that move, but it’s far from legal.
Both The Situation and sibling Marc Sorrentino are expected to surrender to federal authorities today.
In June, Sorrentino was also arrested for his role in a New Jersey tanning salon brawl.
On the positive side for Sitch, if he does end up in jail? There’s plenty of time for doing laundry and hitting the gym in there. Tanning, not so much.
