Hell hath no fury like a Snooki scorned!
And it seems like these guys did some SERIOUS scorning!
We reported last year that the Jersey Shore star was in one nasty legal battle with SRG Ventures, as she claimed that they did not fulfill their obligations to earn her money and branding partnerships, and now, we've learned just how much they told her she would make: $100 million!
And guess how much she actually turned out? $250,000!
A source close to her reveals:
"Snooki filed a suit in October 2011 to end her relationship with SRG, as they didn’t deliver the deals or money they had led her to expect she would receive. Now she’s fighting back against the counterclaim that she didn't hold up her side of the agreement."
"Ms. Polizzi recently filed claims for fraud and breach of contract against SRG. The court papers allege that SRG lied about their connections in the industry and failed to secure licensing agreements in accordance with the parties' written contract. We intend to litigate this case aggressively — SRG's attempt to take advantage of Ms. Polizzi will not be tolerated."
Of course, the counter-suit against her claims that her 2010 arrest and general drunken behavior made it difficult for them to find brands which would want to be associated with her, but SERIOUSLY?!
All that guidette has to do is walk into a club and she makes money!
If you can't figure out a way to brand her, then you probably shouldn't be in that business, guys! Ha!
Take 'em for all their worth, gurl!
