Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino Checks into Rehab

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Rumors,

Mike Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has entered rehab.

The Jersey Shore star has checked into an undisclosed facility for "much needed rest and recuperation" following his recent public appearance tour through Australia, but his management have insisted he's not receiving treatment for substance abuse.

"He is not in rehab for substance abuse. He has spent the last several weeks at an undisclosed location for much needed rest and recuperation after his extensive production and appearance schedule," his rep said.

It is thought The Situation is keen to "get away from the public" and "relax" for a few weeks before the upcoming sixth season of Jersey Shore hits MTV.

"Mike is focusing on recuperation after a very long trip through Australia and getting rested up for season six. His friends and family know where he is, he just wants to get away from the public and be on his own for a bit to relax," a source said.

With The Situation's co-star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi currently expecting her first child with fiance Jionni LaValle, MTV bosses have promised the upcoming season of Jersey Shore will be a "little different."

"While things will definitely be a little different this time when they hit the boardwalk, their trademark hilarity and family dysfunction will remain the same," a spokesperson said.
