GTL? More like GTLol! Life may not be fair, but Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s skin is likely to be very fair given that fact he no longer has unlimited access to tanning beds! It’s a sad day for the former Jersey Shore star indeed.
In September of last year, Mike and his brother Marc were charged with tax fraud. Specifically, the troubled reality star was accused not only of failing to pay the state of New Jersey the full tax amount on $8.9 million in earnings, but also of filing fraudulent returns to make it look as if he had. In case you forgot (or totally missed it the first go-round…who could blame you?), Mike blamed his brother who he claimed managed his money and kept him in the dark about such matters.

Of course, this came on the heels of Mike being accused of bouncing paychecks to his tanning salon employees. I guess if you can’t pay your employees, you sure as heck aren’t paying your rent because now Sitch is in trouble with the tanning salon landlord.
According to TMZ, Mike fell behind in rent and his landlord took him to court. A deal was struck between the parties to which Mike would pay roughly $32,000 with the first installment of $5,500 due on January 15th. I know it won’t shock you to hear that said date came and went with nary a dollar from Sitch.
Now the site reports that the landlord has exercised his right to have a marshall remove the tanning beds and other fixtures due to nonpayment. Mike’s rep told the site, “He currently holds no interest in the salon and had nothing to do with the unpaid bills.”
With no tanning beds, there is no tanning. That pales in comparison to the tax fraud charges though. Get it? Pales? Hahaha! 😉
