Friends say that Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's brother, Marc Sorrentino, is totally cashing in on his fame and is now making waves between The Sitch and his manager, Mike Petolino.
Marc has apparently been acting like Mike's manager, making deals for him and scheduling appearances for him while he was away shooting Jersey Shore and Dancing with the Stars, but Petolino of Gotham Entertainment says HE'S the real manager. He states, "As far as management, I'm Mike's manager. Marc is not Mike's manager." Even his lawyer Ray Raya is making sure that people know that "Marc is Mike's brother and one of his closest advisers, but he's doesn't have an official role."
The problem is Marc is heavily involved with Mike's endorsement deals, including a deal with Devotion Vodka, so now people are getting confused. "Nobody knows who the person to deal with is because both are saying, 'I'm the main person for the Situation,'" said an insider.
And not only that, but Marc was accused of holding a woman hostage in a limo a few days ago, which is making things look REALLY bad for Mike. A source says, "The Situation is starting to wake up and be like, 'What's going on?'"
Dude, we understand you have to stay close to family, but if he's making things worse for you, you need to cut those business ties with your bro. It's just not worth it.
