The Situation

Sued for $1 Mil

After 86ing Manager

7/8/2011 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's ex manager just filed a $1 million lawsuit against him ... alleging he was wrongfully dumped after taking him from "relative obscurity" to stardom. 

0708_situation_ex_tmzThe Manager's Co., Gotham NYC Entertainment, filed the suit today ... claiming the Situation dumped Gotham back in May for what he deemed a "lack of performance." 

Gotham denies any poor performance -- but even if there was ... the lawsuit claims Sitch was contractually required to give Gotham 30 days notice ... and a chance to correct any issues.

Gotham claims it never got that opportunity -- and therefore Sorrentino is in breach of his contract.

In the suit, Gotham says it's managed Situation since the 2009 premiere of "Jersey Shore" -- and it not only discovered Sitch, but transformed "his career from relative obscurity to become an international celebrity."

Gotham is suing for damages in excess of $1 million.

"Relative" obscurity? What was he on previously? And who looks over their sunglasses like a librarian looking over their reading glasses? The world will be a better place when obscurity again catches up with this tool.

Is that why he's wearing those sun glasses? because he thinks he is a star now?

I think the general public should be able to sue the management company for helping to unleash this no talent douchebag on us.

Just like stars in the sky, they rise so fast and fall even faster! The Jersey Shore cast is beyond obsessed with stardom. It is so crazy that society is obsessed with a bunch of losers who spend their days thinking about how they look, what to wear, and how much to drink!

Taking his million dollars is acting as if taking back everything he worked for, when what he's saying is that YOU DIDNT WORK. He dedicated himself to the whole project, while you sat back and relaxed with your connections on a pedastal. Dumb
