The Situation is out of the big house.
On Thursday, “Jersey Shore” star Mike Sorrentino was granted an early release from the Otisville Federal Correctional Institution in upstate New York, where he was serving an eight-month sentence for tax evasion.
“We are elated to finally close this chapter of our life. Thank you to our family, friends and fans for the continuous love and support during this time, it brought us so much peace and comfort,” Sorrentino told Page Six in a statement. “We look forward to continuing our life as husband and wife and working on baby situations!
“We truly believe that the comeback is ALWAYS greater than the setback and we can’t wait to show the world ours.”
Sorrentino, 37, reported to prison in January, after being sentenced last October. He had been expected to be released in September.
Sorrentino and his older brother Marc plead guilty in January 2018 to violating federal tax laws.
Before reporting to prison, Sorrentino wed college sweetheart Lauren Pesce last November.
“We are each other’s best friend and together we can handle anything,” the couple told Us Weekly at the time.
Sorrentino returned to MTV in 2018 with “Jersey Shore Family Vacation.”
