    Who Wants $7 Million From Snooki?!

    Snooki has been hit up for a lot of clams.

    A little more than a month after the Jersey Shore star filed a motion to get out of a licensing deal, claiming the company she signed with didn't fulfill its promise to get Snooki-brand merchandise on the market in a lucrative manner, the licensing company went after her.

    SRG Ventures is now suing Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi for $7 million, accusing her of sabotaging their deal by negotiating with other brands behind their back and dragging her platforms on the opportunities they did present to her.

    What does the wee reality-TV princess have to say? Is she down to tangle with all this legal mumbo-jumbo?

    Apparently so!

    "Ms. Polizzi disputes SRG's version of the facts and looks forward to her day in court," her rep tells E! News.

    According to her Oct. 12 filing in New York Supreme Court, Snooki sent SRG a notice of termination of their contract back in June, more than 60 days ahead of the Aug. 9 expiration date of their agreement. Her camp states that SRG simply failed to secure licensing royalties in excess of $250,000, pursuant to the contract, and didn't get her five acceptable deals, as promised.

    Her complaint also stated that SRG was supposed to hook Snooki up with at least a $250,000 deal with at least one major retailer, such as Target, Kohl's, Walmart, Macy's, JCPenney, Sears, etc.

    And Snooki's name hasn't joined the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Lauren Conrad and Miley Cyrus on the big-box racks just yet.

    E! has confirmed that SRG countersued Snooki on Nov. 15.
