Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi may soon end up in court -- but not for the usual reasons.
The 24-year-old "Jersey Shore" star has been hit with a $7 million counterclaim in her legal battle with licensing company SRG Ventures.
According to , Polizzi initially partnered with the company to launch an array of merchandise including school supplies, watches, shoes and lingerie. The pint-sized party girl filed suit in October to end her contract with SRG Ventures, claiming the company didn't fulfill its obligation to secure enough money and develop sufficient branding partnerships.
SRG Ventures' counterclaim alleges Polizzi sabotaged their agreement by negotiating with brands behind the company's back -- a claim Polizzi's lawyer strongly denies. "Ms. Polizzi disputes SRG's version of the facts and looks forward to her day in court," SRG's lawyer Robert J. Hantman says.
