The Situation Sues

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.

How does a promoter make a profit after paying this guy $30,000 to appear? What is the door fee, $100!?

Thank god these idiots 15 minutes are finally coming to an end. And, you know very well they all spent most of there money too. They got so high on themselves that they probably figured Jersey Shore was just the beginning of their rise to stardom, instead of the only real gig they will get. Either way, if he was nearly as popular now, as he was even a year ago, the club WOULD HAVE USED HIM! Wonder how many other companies are going to bail on their commitments to these goons, and leave them high and dry?? And that idiot Jionnie (?) LaValle, Snookies babydaddy, is in for a huge awakening when he realizes he's stuck with her and a kid, and no more money is rolling in...
