Even though he first denied reports that he was in rehab, Jersey Shore’s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has confirmed that he did in fact check himself into a facility after becoming dependant on prescription medication.
“I have voluntarily taken steps to get control of a prescription medication problem I had due to exhaustion,” The Sitch wrote in his blog Wednesday. “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.”
A source claiming to be close to Mike told US Weekly the reality star wasn’t doing so good before taking his time out.
“Mike was in bad shape,” the source told the magazine. The source also said that he doesn’t normally stay in touch with his Jersey Shore costars when they’re not behind the camera. “When they are not filming, they really don’t know what he is up to and don’t talk to him at all.”
Everyone’s being careful to not use the term rehab, but isn’t that what it is?
