Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino Pleads Guilty to Tax Fraud, Faces 15 Years Behind Bars

We’ve got quite a situation here, folks.

Just as the Jersey Shore cast is reuniting for a second shot at reality TV stardom, one of the show’s most infamous figures may be headed to jail for a very long time.

But hey, at least he’ll have plenty of time to work on those famous abs.

Back in April of 2017, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino was charged with tax fraud alongside his brother and business partner, Marc Sorrentino.

According to court documents obtained by Page Six, The Sitch has pled guilty “not paying all federal income tax owed on approximately $ 8.9 million … earned between 2010 and 2012.”

And it seems that Mike didn’t simply forget to dot the I’s and cross the T’s on his 1040:

“They also stand accused of commingling their business and personal bank accounts so that they could get away with spending the money on ‘high-end luxury vehicles and clothing,’” a source close to the case claims.

Mike also stands accused of making “multiple cash deposits on the same day in amounts less than $ 10,000, into different bank accounts that he controlled” in an effort to avoid reporting his earnings to the IRS.

Mike and Marc were first offered the plea deal on December 19 but rejected it due to the lengthy amount of time they might spend behind bars.

It seems Mike is facing 15 years in prison, while his brother might be put away for a whopping 25 years.

Legal experts say it’s unlikely that they’ll receive the maximum sentence, but note that some jail time seems inevitable.

Last year, the Sorrentinos appeared on Marriage Boot Camp (they really need to fix that title), where they discussed the charges against them and admitted to being fearful of going to prison.

Interestingly, Mike is not the first Garden State-based reality star to be convicted of tax fraud in recent years.

Real Housewives of New Jersey regular Teresa Giudice served 15 months in prison on similar charges back in 2015.

Her husband, Joe Giudice, is currently serving 4 years behind bars.

There’s no word yet on whether or not Mike will be able to appear in the upcoming Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.

Which is a shame, because it certainly sounds like he could use the cash!


Scheana Marie: Pissed About Mike Shay’s New Girlfriend?!

Your totes enlightened friend who curates her ex’s Tinder profile might disagree, but we all know that there’s a winner and a loser in every breakup.

Sometimes, it’s not immediately clear who came out on top.

Other times it’s a blow-out victory, such as in the case of Scheana Marie and Mike Shay.

If you’re a Vanderpump Rules fan, then you’re likely aware that Scheana and Shay’s divorce was an ugly one, and Scheana emerged from the wreckage looking like a courageous survivor …

… while Mike came off as more of an uncaring, unemployed, drug-addicted adulterer.

It wasn’t a great look.

Anyway, Scheana continued her victory tour by being the first to move on from the marriage with a guy who not only has a job, but appears to not have any serious drug addictions, thus making him considerably less likely to drain her bank account.

Scheana began dating Robert Valletta almost immediately after parting ways with Shay.

She revealed on the Vanderpump Rules Season 6 premiere that she and Valletta have been “friends with benefits” on and off for seven years.

(She also revealed that Valletta is considerably more blessed in the dong department, which probably wasn’t Shay’s favorite moment of the episode.)

But like the Atlanta Falcons in the second half of Super Bowl LI, Scheana appears to have taken her considerable lead for granted.

We’re not saying Mike will ever be victorious–dude’s like 30 and still trying to make it as a rapper–but he’s been making major gains lately.

Apparently, Shay even has a new girlfriend, whom he’s describing to friends as the love of his life.

“Mike is finally over Scheana and has been posting about his new girlfriend non-stop on social media,” an insider tells Radar Online.

“He is telling his friends that the new girl is the love of his life!”

Scheana’s reportedly been seeking comfort with Valletta, but seeing as he’s also her ex these days, that might not be a totally effective strategy.

“Scheana has been spending time with Rob more so lately while he is in L.A. at her premiere party and other festivities,” a source tells Radar.

“However, the two are not back together and she has recently been trying to reach out to Mike.”

Yes, it seems like Scheana just didn’t know what she had until it was gone.

Or she’s just pissed that she’s single and Mike isn’t anymore.

Either way, most unemployed 30-year-olds rarely find themselves in the situation of being fought over by two girls, so enjoy it, Mike!
