Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino got that black eye from his mum!
When Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino was sporting a black eye last month, he told TMZ it was from a little brotherly bust up at their tanning salon.
Now, it is understood that it was indeed from a family member, although not his younger brother Frank- but his mum!
Older brother Marc recently let the cat out of the bag to E! Online saying:
"I'm going to let you in on a secret, mom is the one who got him...She got him with a left. Mom's the tough one."
The ex Jersey Shore star’s mum Linda confirmed the scuffle admitting her son was caught in the crossfire.
“"Yeah...I broke my finger. I just got it out of the sling. I was trying to break him and Frank up and I think I missed and....”
We’re surprised the petite mother of four only broke her finger, considering she is about the size of one of her son’s bicep!
Apparently it did start as a fight between brothers before Linda intervened. Mike was reportedly not happy with how younger brother Frank was running their new tanning salon. Things obviously got heated with ‘The Situation’ ending up in jail bloodied and bruised as a result.
However older brother Marc tried to play down the fight between his siblings simply saying:
"I try to remain calm in all these situations," he said. "At the end of the day, we are all family. Everybody has a brother or sister they fight with."
Cameras are set to follow the gang for their new reality show ‘The Sorrentino’s’, so we’re sure this isn’t the last we’ll hear of some family fights!
