JWOWW SUED

You Ripped Off Our

Tanning Lotion Bottle!

Three college buddies from Oklahoma are suing Jwoww from "Jersey Shore" ... claiming the MTV star STOLE their design for her tanning lotion bottle ... and now they want her to pay!!

The guys claim they approached Jwoww last year and asked her to become the celebrity spokesperson for a tanning product called Black Bronzer ... and they even created a custom bottle design.

The guys claim Jwoww dug the idea -- and the two sides were close to reaching a deal -- when she suddenly cut off communication with them and launched her own tanning line with Australian Gold using a similar bottle design.

Jwoww's line is a HUGE success -- and the guys are pissed ... claiming she owes them a ton of cash for ripping off their ideas.

Calls to Jwoww's lawyer have not been returned.

Kids, Say no to tanning beds and wear your sunscreen otherwise you will look like that. You will look 35 when your only 25.

I see a new nickname in her future. JWoww I'm so stupid. This idiot ripped it off and if these guys do it right, they can have a huge chunk of change from Australian Gold too. Besides, their products are crap anyways. Using Jwoww to sell their tanning lotion is like using screaming to sell a Honda or Chevy. It only appeals to the dumb of the group while the Cadillac and Lexus don't yell and scream at you and they attract the smarter buyers.
