Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino’s brother absolutely upset the ‘Jersey Shore’ star who called the police against him
You could argue that a situation has recently deteriorated in the Holmdel house of “Jersey Shore” star Mike Sorrentino.
Sorrentino’s brother, Maximo Sorrentino, stopped on his way to a tanning salon on Tuesday to drop off gifts for Mike and his young son, Romeo.
But as he was trying to see if there was anyone at the house, he quickly found the police waiting for him.
It turns out that Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, his own brother, was the one who called the police, and Maximo says it’s a mystery as to why.
“I don’t know what Michael’s problem is, quite frankly,” Maximo told NJ Advance Media.
The Situation’s brother, who was previously called Frank Sorrentino – his full name is Maximo Gianfranco Sorrentino – co-starred with his younger brother and family on the reality series “The Sorrentinos”. The show debuted on Pop television in 2014, after the original “Jersey Shore” ended on MTV (a cover series, “Jersey Shore Family Vacation,” debuted in 2018 and is still on the air).
TMZ reported on the not-so-fraternal development between the Sorrentines Thusday. A representative for Mike told the outlet that Maximo “excessively rang several doorbells, looked inside through the window, lingered for a bit and then turned to leave – but not before. to leave all the gifts hanging on the doorknob “.
As Maximo tells NJ Advance Media that he never saw Mike while he was there, Mike’s rep told TMZ that the “Jersey Shore” personality was watching it all happen at the inside the house and decided to call the police.
Holmdel police informed Maximo that Mike had a restraining order against him. He told the police that was not true and left. Later, Maximo says, the police called him to apologize and said there was no restraining order, although Mike called them with that claim.
“I’m a little upset that Michael is lying to the Holmdel Township police,” he said.
Maximo also denies that Mike filed harassment complaints against him. TMZ reported that it filed one in July.
Mike declined to make a statement through his publicist.
His brother says he now knows Mike didn’t like the fact that he showed up uninvited at the house he shares with his wife Lauren Sorrentino and son. But he says Mike would drop by his house often casually to share extra meals from his Eat Clean Bro membership.
“Growing up as a gay man, it’s hard enough to gain acceptance and you still struggle,” says Maximo. “I still struggle with acceptance. I’m not saying Michael does it or not, it’s a separate conversation. But I don’t know what his reasoning is.
There has already been bad blood between Sorrentinos.
Maximo, who lives near Mike in County Monmouth and calls himself “forever 37” – he’s the oldest of the brothers – had an argument with Mike at the Boca Tanning Club, the Middletown tanning salon they owned when they were on “The Sorrentinos”. “Customers called 911,” he says.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, 39 – although Bureau of Prisons records say he is 40 – rose to fame in 2009 as a “Jersey Shore” actor known for his washboard abs. The Staten Island native grew up in Manalapan and previously lived in Long Branch. In 2019, he served eight months in prison for tax evasion. His other older brother, Marc Sorrentino, was sentenced to two years in federal prison after pleading guilty to one count of assisting in preparing false tax returns, and was released in 2020.
Brothers Marc, Mike and Maximo Sorrentino appeared on We TV’s “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Family Edition”, Where things got a little heated again. Their sister Melissa and mother Linda were also featured in “The Sorrentinos”.
Maximo acted in several films since appearing in the 1983 horror film “Night camp”As a kid, and he’s working on a line of supplements. He changed his name from Frank Jr. to Maximo because he says his father stole his identity from his teenage years and damaged his credit.
What was the present he was trying to drop off at Mike’s house?
“I had bought matching tracksuits for my brother and Romeo,” he says of his brother and nephew, born in May. Since he didn’t see Mike on his birthday in July, he wanted to give the giveaway, which features a design collaboration between Puma and BMW.
When Maximo got to the house, he tried another entrance, he said, because the seven-bedroom, four-story house is large and he didn’t know which side they might have been on if they were on. the House. He wanted to leave the presents there, but the police asked him to take the tracksuits with him. He says he is now considering donating them to a local charity.
“He’s still my brother, I love him,” says Maximo. “Maybe he’s going through something I don’t know, I don’t know.”
