That trip to rehab might end up costing The Situation!
The Jersey Shore star has reportedly been slapped with a lawsuit by the Florida company Performance Brands, after they claimed he signed an endorsement deal for some fat-eliminating cream…but never followed through with the terms of the contract and instead took off to rehab!
According to legal documents, the company paid him a $75,000 advance, under the impression he would provide promotional material, give shout-outs on social media and make personal appearances, but upon forking the check over, he took off to seek treatment for his prescription pill addiction, and his PR team LIED to them about it!
However, The Situation has filed a counter-suit in response, and says he was never given a marketing plan on time nor did they give him free product!
Well, whether or not he and his team did the right thing in this specific scenario, at least it was in order to provide him with a place to take care of his addiction issues!
Guess it will be up to a judge to decide who is at fault here!
