Mike 'The Situation
' Sorrentino has been sued for allegedly pulling out of a deal with a health cream company.
The Jersey Shore
legend failed to endorse a metabolising substance by an organisation called Performance Brand, according to TMZ
Legal documents reportedly reveal that Sorrentino was paid an advance of $75,000 for the promotion work.
Sorrentino had a stint in rehab
earlier this year to deal with a "prescription medication problem" and alcohol dependency, which coincided with his marketing work.
Performance Brand say that his failure to share with them his drug addiction was a breach of contract.
The Situation has apparently launched a counter suit against Performance Brand, arguing that the company failed to disclose a marketing plan.
The reality TV star, 30, has been sued before over similar circumstances
