Uh Oh, looks like steering clear of all the drinks in the world couldnt stop The Situation’s past from coming back to haunt him.
The Jersey Shore star, also know my his issued name of Michael Sorrentino, inked a deal to be the face, and the body of course, of a yet-to-be-named anti-fat cream, but the Sitch had some demons of his own to battle and entered rehab and never fulfilled contractual agreements, now the company wants their mula back.
As reported by TMZ:
A company in FL called Performance Brands claims they signed a deal with the “Jersey Shore” star back in September 2011 to endorse their fat metabolizing cream … a job Sitch is perfect for thanks to his six-pack.
According to legal docs, PB claims they paid Sitch and his people a $75,000 advance. His job was to provide promotional material, give shout-outs on social media and make personal appearances … which PB claims NEVER happened.
Not only that, PB says right after they sent the $$$ … Sitch checked into rehab for a prescription drug addiction … which they claim his PR team lied to them about, before later copping to the truth.
They say his failure to disclose his drug addiction is a breach of contract and they want all their money back.
Sitch fired back at the company with his own counter-suit — claiming PB failed to give him a marketing plan on-time, advertise in national magazines, or give him free product. PB denies all these claims.
Sounds like a sticky cream situation. The whole scenario, including this mythical fat burning cream sounds a little bit like a game of he-say she-say.
