Michael The Situation Sorrentino ()
Miami attorney Richard Wolfe has lodged a suit against Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino, alleging the former “Jersey Shore” cast member attempted to pay his legal bills with bad checks.
Wolfe, who runs Wolfe Law Miami, filed the complaint in Miami-Dade Circuit Court on July 8, claiming Sorrentino and his brother, Marc, owe $29,175 in legal fees, along with accruing interest.
The lawsuit claimed the brothers were sent monthly statements regarding the large balance but “only partially paid the bills rendered to them,” and some of the checks bounced.
“They paid me lots of money and stiffed me on the last bill,” said Wolfe, who has been the Sorrentinos’ lawyer since 2009.
He is asking for treble damages to triple the amount owed on all the bad checks. The complaint includes copies of two bounced checks for $2,000 each, one from The Situation’s personal bank account and one written against a tanning salon owned by the brothers.
This is the second time in less than a month that Sorrentino has faced public money issues. A police report against the reality star was filed in mid-June after Boca Tanning Club employees claimed their paychecks bounced.
His publicist, Cindy Guagenti, said the matter is being resolved.
