Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has entered rehab, TMZ reports.
The “Jersey Shore” star is battling substance abuse, according to TMZ’s source. Sitch’s rep would neither confirm nor deny that he entered rehab, but said he “has spent the past several weeks at an undisclosed location for much needed rest and recuperation after his extensive production and appearance schedule.”
It’s been a rough few weeks for the always-entertaining “Shore” star (as far as rough weeks for reality TV show stars go). After co-stars Snooki and JWoww speculated publicly about his sexuality, Sitch’s buddy The Unit attempted to set the record straight. Sorrentino himself slammed the rumors and said he was concerned they could hurt his brand relationships, as he claims most of his products target straight men.
He did, however, make a cameo appearance on ABC’s show “Suburgatory,” in which he plays a DJ who is a character’s ex-boyfriend.
