Another DJ Named Paulie Is Suing DJ Pauly D - For $4 MILLION!

His name's "Paulie" though. World of difference, right?!

Apparently not, since DJ Paulie of South Windsor, Connecticut is suing the Jersey Shore DJ Pauly D star for $4 MILLION dollah dollah bills because the reality star for allegedly ruined his business. People are getting their names all confussled and Paulie is losing business because Pauly is to wild! The disgruntle disc jockey explained to a local newspaper:

"I've prided myself in being G-rated. Jersey Shore is hardly family entertainment. The show is hurting my business. It's ruining my reputation. I've even had death threats."

Geez! Harsh gig!

Turns out that this is the guy that stopped Pauly D from trademarking his name a few years back, since DJ Paulie had already done so and the names were too similar to comply with regulations. Now, DJ Paulie is fighting to keep his name - and for some money to make up for the loss of business. As he lawyer explains:

"Delvecchio has misappropriated my client’s name, has been told by the Feds that the name belongs to my client, but MTV is still using it. We want them to give the little guy a chance and follow the law. My client just wants his name back, he does want compensation but that's still to be determined. His primary motivation is to get his name back."

To be honest, we're actually kind of surprised by this. We would imagine that this would help your business, not hurt. We imagined people would be flocking to your website in droves. Pauly D is arguably one of the most popular cast members. Most people love him! We know we do!

It's a tough case. We have sympathy for this guy and his livelihood, but really, what's Pauly supposed to do? Change his name! His momma gave him that! Not so easily parted with!

    Because his show is G-rated. And people looking for that, mainly a very young crowd, aren't calling the original one because they think it's Pauly D. That's why it's hurting his business. SImple enough. No matter how full of it the guy may seem it's a legit argument.

    I wouldn't be too concerned, its only a matter of time before the jersey shore mob fade back into obscurity, I'm surprised it's lasted this long.

    What a cry baby! So if I'm a DJ and I use the name my MOM gave me, I can't use it because someone else has the same name? Really? Paulie just wants some money out of this since his DJ'ing probably is NOT that great and now he's just looking to make a quick buck! Go get a real job like the rest of us and leave the REAL DJ Pauly D alone!!! Oh yeah and go buy a box of tissue you cry baby!!!!
