The Situation

Target In Federal Felony Investigation

The Situation
 is on the wrong end of a massive Federal criminal investigation -- which is currently focusing on the "Jersey Shore" star's cash flow ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us, Mike Sorrentino and his companies -- MPS Entertainment, Situation Productions, GTL Management, and his clothing line Situation Nation -- are at the center of the investigation. 

The exact nature of the crime is unclear, but we know it's a felony, and appears to be finance related. We're told subpoenas have already been issued to Sitch's business associates, asking for copies of payments issued to him, copies of canceled checks, correspondence, and more.

We reached out to Situation's rep for comment. So far, no word back.

Fist pump has a whole different meaning in prison.

You can't really be a real guido without the Feds investigating your greasy as.

He's so greasy. It seems like he could use a long shower with a good antibacterial soap.

What, did Monica Chacon tattle on them, too?
I think the feds are making a habit of looking into the finances of NJ reality stars in general. Coincidental as well that Christi publicly dislikes Jersey Shore cast and has a deeply contentious relationship with Al Manzo from RHONJ. Is the Gov giving the feds carte blanche or even assisting them in wiping these s***bag reality stars from NJ?

all about the money    

Their after his lucky charms...well he is kind of like a leprechaun :P Interesting here he thought his baby momma was after his money but sounds like the Feds are making a play as well. Business related...please tell me is not money laundering or racketeering, it would be an insult to the mob if this fool was trying to be a Don.

Pretty sure he asked for cash when he got paid for appearances so that there would be no paper trail in case the Feds knocked on their door. If they can't find a paper trail from the people who paid him then they are sh** out of luck. Majority of all reality stars ask for CASH when they get paid for red carpets and events. So they can pocket it and not claim it. No news here, folks. The government is really reaching with these reality stars.

I never watched his sophomoric television show but couldn't help but being saturated by him and his group of idiots through the media. Why didn't he ever get that nose worked on? It looks like he has a lightbulb at the end of it. Does it light up?
