The Situation charges $30,000 A POP to appear in Vegas nightclubs ... so says the "Jersey Shore" star ... who's now suing a promoter for stiffing him to  the tune of $60k.

Sitch filed the suit in Miami, claiming he struck a deal with a promotion company last year to make a total of 3 appearances at Vegas nightclubs Chateau and Gallery by June 30th.

According to the lawsuit, the deal was "pay or play" -- meaning Situation was to get paid the full amount ... even if the club decided not to use him all three times.

Situation claims the club only called him in once before the deadline ... and only paid him $30k.

Now, the "Jersey Shore" star is suing the promotion company for the balance -- $60,000 -- insisting it hasn't held up its end of the bargain.

Calls to the promotion company Diversified Entertainment were not returned.

The promoter probably doesn't have the money and will file for bankruptcy. I wonder why he is worrying about $60...,000 when he is worht millions now. It is not like he even did work for it, just waited for a call.


Maybe it is the principal, but it seems like a waste of time.

Leave poor Mike alone, his 15 minutes are up since they won't be making anymore Jersey shore's, so he has collect money anyway he can! Maybe now the girls of Jersey or visiting Jersey can stop making an a$$ out of themselves by being kicked out of the house after they gave up the booty.

No no no, they offered him 30k to stay the heck out of the club. This guy is one of the most annoying looking person in the world. How many times did he get his butt kicked by women? I don't know buy I know it's a lot. Stay in jersey. O wait they don't won't you either. Go to Canada, they really like you there
