Reports claimed Jersey Shore star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino was in rehab, but his rep says the stories are not true.
Sorrentino’s rep denies any claims that the Situation entered rehab for substance abuse, telling E! News “He has spent the past several weeks at an undisclosed location for much needed rest and recuperation after his extensive production and appearance schedule.”
The Situation has taken to Twitter to clear up the rumors himself. “Don’t believe everything you hear or read.” Sorrentino added a link to his website where he went into more detail about the rumors.
“I want to set the record straight. I have voluntarily taken steps to get control of a prescription medication problem I had due to exhaustion. I have spent the past several weeks getting treatment for this problem and recuperating from my work and appearance schedule. I appreciate my fans support and love you guys.”
An MTV spokesperson said the network had “no comment” about Sorrentino’s state of mind, but added that they “fully expect and are looking forward to the entire cast returning for a sixth season.”
