The Situation: I'm Famous, But Not 'Cause of Them!

7/8/2011 3:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is blanching at a lawsuit filed against him by his former manager ... claiming the manager was a slacker who actually did more harm than good.

TMZ obtained a statement from Richard Wolfe, Mike's lawyer, who says Gotham Management's suit "is filled with lies and falsities."  Wolfe says Gotham, which is suing for $1 million in commissions, "did MORE HARM than good to Michael and his career." 

The one thing the Situation and Gotham agree on is that Sitch is famous.  Gotham claims in its suit it made him famous, and Wolfe says Mike's brother Marc Sorrentino "works tirelessly to build the brand that is Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino."

Wolfe says Sitch will "pay Gotham what they are owed but no more."

Wow I didn't think this douchebnag's ego could get any bigger than it already is! Why or why do people watch this mess and continue to let these idiots think that they are of value? I hope to heck his ex manager wipes the floor with this maggot as well as watching his "career" (drinking, fighting and going to bars of course) die a slow and painful death. The Situation is the stupidest name too.

Former Management People:

"We made him what he is."

No, that's not true.

Sitch made himself who he is -

How many hours did you spend in the gym with Sitch?

Former Management People p.s.:

If you "made Sitch what he is?"

...What's Sitch's work-out routine on M-W-F?

-What day does he do legs?

...When's the last time he took a day off?

Oh, and what's Sitch's work-out routine on T-R-S?

Since you made Sitch who he is -

You'll know the answers to all of that.

MTV gave this idiot the opportunity to show the world what a douche bag he is. The show has just about run it's course, and so has the cast.

at least the situation has figured out to just pay a quick settlement and be done with it even though he would proably love the free publicity from a trial keeping his long pass fifteen minutes of fame going plus love him calling his former managers a slacker when if the situation would look in the mirror he would see the same thing.

Regardless of who's to blame, he's famous for pretty much no reason at all

What they're saying is (that) Sitch has a moral responsibility
to them -

A moral obligation -

Now a judge will decide.

I'm guessing fifteen grand -

Will make this go away.
