Ronnie Magro has dealt with his fair share of legal dramaÂ—most of it stemming from fighting at the Shore. However, he and his family are now dealing with some legal trouble of a different kind.
According to the New York Post, Maria Emma of Embroidme is saying that Ronnie and his family owe her company $30,000 for stocking his store in the Bronx. She reports that his father sent her two checks for $10,000 each, but later canceled them.
"They're disgusting," said Emma, who provided The Post copies of the canceled payments. "I'm getting stop-payment checks. I can't even write payroll checks to my employees." Those are some pretty harsh words, but appropriate given the circumstances she is claiming.
Emma goes on to explain that she's been Ronnie's work horse since the store opened and has been going above and beyond what any normal supplier would be able to do. Emma seems like someone who has done her job and simply wants payment, but Ronnie's camp is saying otherwise and explaining exactly why she is being treated the way she claims.
Ronnie Magro has released a statement via his spokesperson: "The checks being referenced did not bounce but were canceled due to the poor quality of some of the shirts and the turnaround time promised not being honored."
That explains the way Emma is acting. Ronnie Magro just opened his store, and would surely not want to do something to put his new business venture in dangerÂ—especially not with Jersey Shore coming to an end.
This case sounds like his word versus hersÂ—and it's just the beginning. With that amount of money, this is sure to be something fans will hear more about.
