The Situation SUES Dad -- Stop Exploiting Me!!!

5/17/2011 6:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's the lawsuit EVERYONE saw coming ... The Situation is suing his father over that horrible website his old man created in an effort to humiliate the MTV reality star ... and TMZ has obtained the docs.

Situation Sues Dad

According to the suit filed Monday in federal court in Miami ... Mike Sorrentino claims his pop, Frank Sorrentino, is illegally using his name and likeness all over his website, TheConfrontationSite.com.

Mike also insists his dad is actively trying to damage his business reputation -- by posting anti-Situation videos and statements all over the site.

Mike also takes a shot at his father's business partner -- claiming the guy who created his dad's site is a scumbag businessman who has a long history of ripping people off.

Mike is asking a judge to stop his father from using his name and likeness on the website ASAP. He also wants unspecified damages.

It's really sad how these reality stars are tying up our court system,and using our tax dollars for publicity.

Same goes for alot of celebs..Doing whatever it takes to get a headline..From Lindsay Lohan..to the Jersey retards.

Who watches that childish crap?..15 year olds?

Time to ignore,and tune off these retards.

OooooNooo!    

Hmmmm. . . pay off your deadbeat douche bag father or pay an army of lawyers. . . the lawyers at least keep your name in the media. Looks like the kid made the right call. Ride that fame for as long as you can kid. The ride doesn't last long.

Of course we know that this stupidity is a publicity stunt by the dad to get his own reality show... Hollywood could never write a sitcom this amusing

The only opinion I have on this is that this is pretty much what you'd expect his father to be like given how he turned out.

Now you see why the cast members of Jersey Shore are such caricatures of normal people.

@Paul. You nailed it. These people are famous for being drunk and screwing random (unfortunate) people. Terrible what passes for "talent" nowadays......

His dad should hire a good lawyer and his dad's lawyer should make Mike say whether or not the claims in the video are true. I am betting that based off the 15 minutes of Jersey Shore that I had watched over at MTV.com they are.

Where does this guy buy his vintage 1980s Elton John sunglasses anyway? They're very flamboyant.

I don't watch Jersey Shore but seriously, the dad needs to chill out. He was looking for a hand out from his son and got turned down. Maybe the guy was never there for Mike or maybe he was but to take it to the public is just childish. What decent parent would say that their child got fired for a BJ at a job? This dude needs to be the parent and not some whiney, candy a** and grow up. Take care of your own business and leave the kid alone.
