Snooki Gets Slammed With $7 Million Dollar Lawsuit

December 20, 2011 08:50 AM by Lisa Princ

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi of MTV’s hit Jersey Shore is always causing a stir, but when the pint-sized star decided to file a lawsuit over her Snooki related merchandise, she probably never thought she would be hit with a counterclaim. But the company that Snooki originally went after is now slapping the Jersey Shore with a $7 million dollar lawsuit. Read on for more…

Last year, Jersey Shore’s Snooki partnered with SRG Ventures to launch a line of Snooki related merchandise, including everything from school supplies to lingerie. In October, Snooki filed a suit against the company to end their contract, claiming that they did not fulfill their obligations – which promised her a certain amount of money and branding partnerships. Ah, it’s all about the money, isn’t it? What Snooki probably did not bargain for though, was a counterclaim against her for $7 million dollars!

SRG Ventures recently filed the counterclaim against Snooki and her management company, claiming that Snooki sabotaged the contract by negotiating with brands behind SRG’s back, and taking her sweet time on the deals SRG Ventures brought her. Snooki is standing by her claims and disagrees with the claims made by SRG, as her rep recently said: “Ms. Polizzi disputes SRG’s version of the facts and looks forward to her day in court.”

Jersey Shore is currently gearing up for their 5th season, which is set to air in early 2012.

    Dumb move by SRG Ventures……. What pseudo celebrity will want to sign up with them now? If I was in a position to use SRG Ventures, I would want an IRONCLAD contract and more money to take the extra risk.

    That’s what the hell Snooki gets! I’m friends with the designer that made her famous jersey shore studded sunglasses, and he tried on several occasions to reach out to her, and she ignored him…..after he gave her FREE stuff! When someone is nice to you, you don’t give them your ass to kiss, so good for ass! What goes around comes around!

    it is standard procedure to file a counter suit. I would think Nicole has intelligent representation & would be sure of their claim to begin with. It ALL comes out in the wash when you go to court. I am going to give Nicole credit for being in the right on this.

    Oh I did not realize that in your reality that 24 still meant that someone was a kid.

    Dang in actual reality it usually means that your considered an adult at 18.
    If she entered into a contract then thought she could do better and went behind their backs to make other endorsements and basically sabotaged deals with them hoping for more money she should pay up.

    She’ll get her day in court.

    she is TRASH-end of story–were it not for that hideous “show,” she would be doling out handy jays by a dumpster.

    Leave my poor snookums alone. She has suffered so much at the hands of the ruthless media. She NEVER asked for all this! lol

    Come on. She doesn’t have any talent or anything really worthwhile to say. She’s famous for being stupid. Even if she did grow up and do something productive with her life, it’s not like anyone will take her seriously. She has to grab all the dollars she can now, so I can see why she’s suing over the money.

    IF you care about or watch a show such as Jersey Shore, then chances are you are almost as ignorant as the show itself. Therefore, nothing can be said in defense for this skank because all of her supporters are morons who actually like Jersey Shore. These people possess no proper educational backgrounds to warrant them anything but ignorant. In conclusion, the only people that care about ANY of this are ignorant skanks that see themselves in the show and therefore, like it. The rest of us realize that this is considered trailer trash TV and avoid it.
