Mike 'Situation' Sorrentino: My Mother, Not Brother, Gave Me The Black Eye

Mike 'Situation' Sorrentino says it was his mother -- not brother -- that gave him the black eye he was sporting last month.

Sorrentino had the shiner after his arrest following a fight at his family's tanning salon.

Many believed it came courtesy of older brother Frank but the former 'Jersey Shore' star says it was actually his mother.

"It was a business miscommunication among family," he said in an interview. "At the same time, not many in this world have the ability or capacity to work with your family. It's rewarding, I've always dreamt of it since I was little, but there are trials and tribulations, but at the end of the day we sit down for mama's gravy."

"That was Peaches, my mom got the licks in," Mike said. "Frank did not touch me at all."

"She tried to grab me multiple times, there were multiple jabs, she kept missing she wasn't able to grip, so that's why I had the black eye."

"I was trying to break them apart," the mother clarified. "When they were fighting, me and Melissa tried to break them up, unfortunately to try and break them up I might have hit him with a left."

Frank added that cameras weren't rolling because filming for their reality show 'The Sorrentinos' had finished and it wasn't staged.

"We had wrapped filming a week and a half prior to that," Frank said. "Like all families, there is drama, there are ups and downs ... ours may happen to be in front of the camera."

"I wish it was staged -- it happens to be a very real case later this month, we believe in putting our best foot forward that it will be dismissed."
