Reality TV Star Under Federal Investigation THR
A reality television personality is the target of a federal investigation. According to The Hollywood Reporter, one of the former stars of MTV's "Jersey Shore," Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, is having his finances investigated.
"The U.S. Attorney's Office has issued subpoenas for records related to several businesses he owns, according to a statement released by his publicist," THR reports.
The statement adds: "He is cooperating with the investigation and is providing the requested records. Although the nature and the scope of the investigation is not clear at this time, Sorrentino fully expects that when all the facts are revealed, no further action will be taken."
"Sorrentino owns the production and management company MPS Entertainment and has his own clothing line," THR reports. "The U.S. Attorney's Office has a policy not to confirm or deny the existence of any investigations, they said. The FBI in Newark also said they wouldn't confirm or deny the existence of an investigation."
