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.

I wonder what is going on. Does he just have more companies and employees and associates than he knows how to manage? Is the IRS after him just to terrorize him for not being in the rich clique? Maybe the Illuminati made him an offer and he refused.


I can't imagine what he is doing with money that would land him in prison. He has a lot of money so why would he need to break the law to make more? Maybe the corporations he sued are pulling some strings to get back at him. Maybe A&F are annoyed that he wanted compensation for taking his phrases.


I think he is a smart guy and can hire a good lawyer and will figure out how to get out of this situation as well.

He doesn't have his dad the Confrontation around to pull him out hot water anymore. I remember when everyone felt sorry for him when his dad called him out. He screws everyone over and thinks his money can shield him.

Mike lacked clear delineation. Addictive personalities are very difficult to balance. Not just the fact he was so in love with himself on that show, but he was also sneaky. Eventually there will be bigger snakes in the grass when you try to be one. Seems like you just took a bite. Hope it's not to toxic. I am sure with your so called good looks, you will please many serving a couple lifetimes in prison.

Am I the only one that feels bad for him ? I know he's done some foul ****, but EVERY ONE OF US has s inned, wahtever context you want to put that. He's no different than your average 20-30 something douchebag finding his way. He's still human, and deserves love and compassion. I feel bad for him; his dad is gone and he probably has nowhere to turn for real love. I'm pulling for you man
