Vinny Guadagnino has left the Jersey Shore.
According to TMZ sources, Guadagnino had claimed to be "homesick" for some time and threatened to leave Jersey Shore a few days ago, however his castmates were able to talk him out of leaving.
Jersey Shore's cast began filming the show's fifth season in Seaside Heights late last month shortly after they finished filming its fourth season overseas in Italy.
Guadagnino's Jersey Shore exit is reportedly "for good."
"Vinny has been a pain in the ass and no one will be getting on their knees, begging him to come back," TMZ reported, citing sources connected with the show.
Jersey Shore producer Sally Ann Salsano declined comment on Guadagnino's departure.
"We do not comment on the production of the show," she told TMZ.
According to Us Weekly, Guadagnino also previously left the Jersey Shore house on Wednesday night -- only three days after Season 5 began filming -- but returned the following day after spending the night at a local hotel.
"Seeing his family [during the brief break between seasons] made him get a little homesick," a sourcetold Us.
"[With] Vinny being the youngest of the bunch, it's a long time to be away from his family. He left and is home [in Staten Island]. I don't think he will be back."
Jersey Shore's fourth season will premiere Thursday, August 4 at 10PM ET/PT on MTV.
