Things are not going well for Jersey Shore Power Midget Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi. The New York Post is reporting that the reality star is being hit with a $7 Million dollar lawsuit accusing her of sabotaging a merchandising deal they had together by negotiating with other companies without their permission.
Snooki signed a deal with SRG Ventures to launch a wide range of Snooki themed products including sunglasses, swimwear and other products. She had filed suit against them earlier this year for failing to live up to their side of the bargain.
The Jersey shore has been embroiled in controversy for many years now. While they were filming a season of the MTV reality show in Italy, Snooki was arrested for public intoxication. There have been episodes of the show where fights have broken out, most notably when one of the show’s female cast was punched in the face by a man at an altercation at a bar.
Also from the Jersey Shore cast, Mike Sorrentino, known on the show as The Situation, filed a $4 million dollar lawsuit against Abercrombie and Fitch claiming they illegally used his name and popularity to sell their clothes without receiving his permission
In a bizarre twist, Abercrombie and Fitch had asked the actor to please NOT wear their clothing so their core audience would not associate their clothing with his brand. The Situation filed the lawsuit because he claims he never received any compensation from the clothing retailer and they used his fame to sell clothing.
