Jersey Shore housemate Mike Sorrentino, also known as The Situation, being treated for a prescription pill addiction at a rehab center in Utah. Some people suggest that he may have finally cracked from all the stress and anxiety he has been shown to be dealing with this past season.
Sorrentino’s rep has also confirmed his stay in rehab but would not confirm TMZ’s report by a source that he is suffering from substance abuse. The rep would only say that the Situation, “has spent the past several weeks at an undisclosed location for much needed rest and recuperation after his extensive production and appearance schedule.”
Later the rep went on to tell E!News that Sorrentino was not in rehab due to a substance abuse problem. Afterwards, Sorrentino himself tweeted, “Don’t believe everything you read or hear.”
It is reported that Sorrentino checked himself into an inpatient rehab center.
Either way if the ‘Jersey Shore’ is the source of the Situation’s stress related problem’s it did not deter him from signing on for another season recently. MTV just announced this week that all the current cast members have signed on for a 6th season, MTV is currently airing the 5th season and the 6th will begin filming in the beginning of the summer this year.
This past Monday another tweet from Sorrentino read, “Getting in amazing shape for season 6!”
