A very bad family situation, indeed.
One day after Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's father, Frank, announced he is writing a tell-all book based on his son's dark past, the 28-year-old Jersey Shore star tells Us Weekly that he is "extremely saddened by his estranged father's actions."
Titled Confrontation With Situation, Frank promises the book will be an explosive look at the MTV reality star's life before he hit it big.
"I'm calling Mike on his sh*t," Frank says in a press release. "I've covered up for Mike his entire life, and when I needed his help, he left me hanging. I think people should know what I know. Hardcore partying, drugs, sex, crime elements, you name it, it's in there."
To complement the book, Frank also filmed a series of YouTube videos, where he dissects everything from his son's Jersey Shore castmates to a purported sex tape involving Mike.
"Some of it is funny, some of it you won't believe, and underneath it all, well, it's a hell of a situation, and I think you know what I mean," Frank says. "Based on what he did to me, my attitude is 'f*ck the little f*ck,' and I'm not holding anything back."
According to the Jersey Shore star's rep, Frank "has unfortunately decided to go public to garner himself media attention. The Sorrentino family -- Marc, Frank, Jr., Melissa, and their mother Linda -- remain united with Mike under these hurtful circumstances."
