The 35-year-old former reality TV star reportedly rejected a deal last week, but changed his mind and will reportedly enter the guilty plea on Friday.

The Sorrentino brothers have been accused of not paying all the federal income tax they owed on approximately $8.9 million in income earned between 2010-2012. The two are also accused of allegedly depositing money into different bank accounts to avoid reporting the deposits to the IRS.

The feds also allege that the brothers inflated business expenses for luxury cars and clothing. (RELATED: Snooki’s Law Would Force Student Fee Transparency At Taxpayer-Funded Colleges)
