The vodka company that employed Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino as a "celebrity spokesman" is now suing him, claiming that the Jersey Shore star breached his contract by concealing a drug problem. The Sitch first filed his own lawsuit against Devotion Spirits last month, stating that he helped build its brand but has yet to receive $5 million owed in payment. Devotion is now seeking to justify the non-payment, and claims that Sorrentino was hiding a drug problem from the company, that he was seen asking investors for pot, and that he showed up late for events and refused interview requests. The suit also states that at a New Jersey promotional event in 2011, The Sitch locked himself in a bathroom and later came out "sniffing," with security guards reporting they later found "cocaine-like residue" in the bathroom. Sorrentino's management denied his drug use when approached by the vodka company. But after Devotion terminated their agreement in March 2012, the reality star did check into rehab for an addiction to prescription meds. Despite reports of a relapse earlier this year, Sorrentino has reportedly remained drug-free since entering treatment and even made amends with his castmates during the current final season of Jersey Shore.
