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.

I think that a new reality show: REAL HOUSEWIVES & HUSBANDS OF NEW JERSEY MEET JERSEY SHORE CAST...all makeup and hair to be done by the people of JERSEYLICIOUS! Pasta would be flying everywhere!!
BTW..I have lived in NJ for the past 53 years and have never seen people like this...once in a while there is a sighting, like when you catch a glimpse of the New Jersey Devil (yes, an Urban Legend)
or Big Foot...but we aren't all like this stereotype.

First of all these people are not from Jersey, let alone the Jersey Shore.

You have Seaside Heights which has always had a boardwalk, has been the butt of the Jersey Shore jokes. Further down, Wildwood, another boardwalk, further down south Atlantic City.

The 'real' Jersey shore is between. Beautiful.

This is just plain and simple. The father had enough of his rotten son.

This is why blog sites are so entertaining.
YOU...the viewing public...created these so-called "reality show" idiots. YOU keep them on the air.
And yet YOU come here lambasting them for being the entertaining baffoons that YOU, in your short-attention-span, garbage-fed desperation for celebrities to worship (then defile), have demanded for your vapid pleasure.
Remember books? (I hear you can get them electronically, for those of you who are paper-challenged.)
Remember when there was a thing called "decency"? I know you can't recall "accountability", that's obvious.

BTW-I look for these sites, because your comments are so, shall we say, revealing.
Thanks.

Let's shoot them both into the sun. They'll get to be part of a star anyway, and we'll be rid of them.

@LonnieB

You sound like a halfway intelligent person, so why are you wasting your time entertaining yourself on this site (or others for that matter)? Simply to tell the posters that they are stupid and their posts are meaningless?

All that tanning isn't doing The Situation's skin any favors. He looks about 40 already.

Same court question. How can you separate the parents from their children? It's like suing your parents for posting pics of you growing-up on Facebook. Truth hurts doesn't it, douchebag? I hope MTV and Viacom goes bankrupt and their executives lose all their money for putting-out these ridiculous "reality" shows!!!
