U.S. reality Tv star Mike 'the Situation' Sorrentino is facing legal action from his own lawyer for allegedly failing to pay his bill.

Mike Sorrentino and his brother Marc have been hit with legal papers by their attorney Richard Wolfe, who claims they owe him $29,000 (£17,058) in fees from 2009 to 2013.

In documents obtained by Tmz.com, Wolfe alleges the brothers gave him two cheques for $2,000 (£1,176) on two separate occasions, but one was cancelled and the other bounced back.

Wolfe is seeking damages for the faulty cheques on top of the $29,000.
