"Snooki Lawsuit"Snooki merchandise has been hit with a $7 million lawsuit, in a bitter legal fight with a company that was hired to cash in on her celebrity fame.

Snooki the ‘Jersey Shore’ star has been accused for deliberately destructing a deal with a licensed company, which she signed to launch a range of her themed merchandise. The lawsuit was filed by SRG Ventures, claiming that she destructed their deal by negotiating with other companies, behind their back. Snooki with the real name Nicole Polizzi had earlier filed legal papers, to end her contract with SRG Ventures, claiming that they had failed to fulfill the contract.

Snooki and SRG Ventures had an agreement over marketing her Snooki merchandise, which also include sunglasses, swimwear and sportswear. Both the parties signed the deal, after the success of a range of slippers with her trademark leopard skin print. However, none of the products have appeared, since they have signed the new deal. In November, the 24-year-old reality star launched a range of perfume, which comes in a pink leopard print and zebra striped bottle with a price tag of $45 and was aimed at teenage girls and fans of the MTV Show.

The New York City based company has now filed a counter claim against Snooki, who worked with the US Olympic Committee and the estate of Marilyn Monroe in merchandising deals. The lawsuit was filed in Ulster County in New York City, but the case has been moved to Manhattan. The company in the legal papers claimed that, the breakout star of MTV series, who is known for fake tan and take nails, sticked to give her agreement to merchandise the company, who wanted to sell. Snooki becomes the second Jersey Shore star, who got tangled in a legal dispute, after Mike Sorrentino, who is known as The Situation.
