‘Jersey Shore’ Star Snooki Slapped with $7 Million Lawsuit
After months of dieting and workouts, ‘Jersey Shore’ star Snooki is close to her target weight (for those of you wondering, the tiny four-foot-nine-inch media sensation is aiming for 98 pounds). But it seems now she has a new fight on her wee little hands.
Snooki, nee Nicole Polizzi, is being sued by licensing company SRG Ventures for $7 million after she pulled out of a deal to launch a line of Snooki-related merchandise, including school supplies, watches, shoes and lingerie.
The super-tan reality star says SRG didn’t do its part in getting her enough money or branding partnerships, while the company claims Polizzi sabotaged things by secretly negotiating with other brands and moving too slowly on the deals SRG secured for her.
In response to SRG’s suit, Snooki’s rep said, “Ms. Polizzi disputes SRG’s version of the facts and looks forward to her day in court.”
