Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s new reality show debuts Tuesday night but he made headlines last month after getting into a brawl at his family's New Jersey tanning salon. The former Jersey Shore star is now clearing up the details of what really happened that day.
As we previously reported, it was believed that Sorrentino got into a physical altercation with his brother Frank. The fight took place at the family’s tanning salon, the Boca Tanning Salon in Middletown. Sorrentino was arrested for simple assault at the time and released after posting $500 bail.
The Sorrentino family told ABC News that it was actually Sorrentino’s mother Linda "Peaches" that gave her son a black eye. They had just wrapped filming a week prior to the fight, which Sorrentino says was a “business miscommunication among family.”
"That was Peaches, my mom got the licks in. Frank did not touch me at all,” the reality star explained. His mom jumped in to clear up, "I was trying to break them apart.”
The Sorrentinos airs Tuesday in TVGN.
