Jwoww Sued

How DARE You Bring 'Jersey Shore' Into My Home

3/8/2012 8:52 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jwoww from "Jersey Shore" is being sued for more than $150,000 ... all because she never warned her landlord that she planned to let the show film inside her pad ... this according to a new lawsuit.

According to the suit, Jwoww leased a pad on Long Island back in 2008 from a guy named Stuart Levine. But after she moved in, Jwoww opened her doors to 495 Productions to shoot scenes for the very 1st season of "Jersey Shore" (below).



Levine claims he had NO IDEA Jwoww allowed the shoot to take place until the show aired. He also insists she does NOT have the authority to use the house for commercial filming.

Now, Levine is demanding more than $150k from 495 and Jwoww.

So far, no comment from 495.

Are you serious? This guy is just obviously looking for a few dollars to make so he can go on vacation. So let's just say JWOWW had a party and someone filmed it and sold it to TMZ to air on the show. Does that still give this landlord the right to sue the person who sold the video to TMZ? Not at all.

You see, there is always a the law of precedence in the United States. If you were unaware of certain facts when a law was being breached or a crime commited at a certain point in time, and therefore did not go forward and press charges at the time, since you were unaware, does not necessarily imply that it cannot be pursued in court in the future. Or let me put it this way. If a child is abused for a number of years, yet feels that it is part of a normal environment, but at some point is aware that the abuse is wrongful and should be pursued, I guess that doesn`t make the abuse legal, even if the abuse took place years ago. The abuser can be charged and the case can be brought to trial. Don`t you think that that is what a good and fair jurisdiction should be all about ?

the sad part is no one wants to be jwoww at least no one i know considering she is well known and cant be elusive and really enjoy herself in public she is only worth 2million witch is not much at all my family members have multiple times that much money and they made it without having to give up their privacy, secondly jwoww is so fake she would always say snooki was annoying and did not like her until snooki became one of the more popular on the show so jwoww grabbed on to her coat tail both are losers, and thirdly jwowws dragon tattoo is a clearance special design not unique at all and she needs to do something about the rest of her body she thinks fake boobs make up for the rest of the train wreck

Never watched that moronic MTV Show but any professional Production Company (which I assume 495 is) knows that any filming/video taping/still photography that takes place at a location has to have the permission of the "owner"...NOT THE RENTER. The Production company (Location Manager) has to provide the owner(s) with a location contract which states...days, times & location fees. Also, the Production Company has to submit to the owner(s) of said location a Certificate of Insurance which states the owner(s) name & address of location as additionally Insured/ Loss Payee on their production insurance.
I would say that if the Production Company didn't not provide a location contract Location Fees & certificate of Insurance to the owner he would probably be correct in his law suit.

That said...why the owner waited all this time to file a law suit is anyones guess. Anyway, I gather MTV/495 Productions are just as stupid as the people who appear in that show.

You are still babbling on about the filming. I am speaking about real consequences. Human tragedies. And it will have consequences too. I am sick and tired of jerks and *******s hiding behind others, screwing up other peoples lives and feeling livid about it. I despise cowards. And that is all you are and ever will be.

Toward the end of the 40 days fasting, Jesus was tempted by the devil or satan in the desert. he brought Him up on a mount and showed Him the world and all its riches. The kings, the kingdoms, the power and he spoke to the Christ; " Bow down to me and worship me and I will give you all that you see ". And Jesus spoke; " Get away from me satan, for it is written in the scriptures, "I am the Lord your God, you will have no other Gods beside me" And then satan let go of Jesus and the angels came and gave Him nourishment.

Oh wow. Thy filmed all of what, 10 minutes in his apartment? Yeah, that little house/apartment surely contributed to the shows (oddball) success. I'm sorry, but crazy reality actors or not, this lawsuit is a waste of courtroom time. He obviously has bills or child support or something to pay. His rental place is not the shore house or something!

Levine, another money grubber! Not defending jersey shore...BUT what's the big deal? Nothing was damaged..was there something in the lease that stated NO FILMING STUPID TV SHOWS? I think not. This guy is just another AHOLE looking for a payday. -If he was smart he would market the house and stupid people would want to live there cause she did.
