Lauren Sorrentino brother dead and obituary, whast happened to he

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino of “Jersey Shore” contacted the police when his brother, Maximo Sorrentino, unexpectedly showed up at his Holmdel home on Sept. 17, bearing gifts for Mike and wife Lauren Sorrentino’s new baby, Romeo, according to a TMZ report.

In a social media post on Saturday, Mike stated that Maximo is an “estranged family member who has fallen prey to mental illness from a long-term meth addiction.”

Mike defended his decision to call the police in response to a comment about calling authorities on his brother. “A rational adult who just put down his baby to sleep at 8 pm and the doorbell was ringing obsessively at 8:30 pm!!” Mike’s post reads. He explained that he had previously filed a harassment claim against Maximo in July, and this incident marked the second harassment claim. Despite the situation, Mike chose not to have the police arrest Maximo, emphasizing his desire for Maximo to seek help.

“My whole family has him blocked, not just me, even my mother, and what does that say? We just want him to get help, and he is refusing,” Mike added.

Mike’s brother, Marc Sorrentino, expressed support for him on Twitter, stating, “Great job! What’s right is right and always come to light!”

Maximo declined to comment for the article but mentioned that the gifts intended for Romeo, including matching tracksuits for Mike and the baby, would be donated to CASA of Monmouth County, an immigrants’ rights group. Maximo will be a celebrity judge at the “Caring with Karaoke” CASA benefit at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park.

Notably, Maximo and Mike had a public altercation in 2014 at the former Boca Tanning Club, owned by the family. Mike was arrested and charged with simple assault. The Sorrentino family also appeared on We TV’s “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Family Edition,” and starred in “The Sorrentinos” on the TV Guide Network in 2014. Maximo, previously known as Frank Sorrentino, has appeared in several movies, including 1983’s “Sleepaway Camp.”
