The Situation Admits ‘Prescription Medication Problem’ Is Due to Exhaustion

Situation in Rehab?
'Jersey Shore' star reportedly checks into rehab.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino wants to set the record straight.

TMZ reported on Tuesday that the Jersey Shore star had checked into an “undisclosed location” to deal with exhaustion (and possibly a substance abuse issue), but he was quick to shoot those rumors down, saying on his blog: “You can’t believe everything you hear about “the situation” with The Situation, especially when it comes to some of the ridiculous embellishments TMZ has been spreading. This is just like the child hood game of ‘telephone’ – someone hears a small rumor and blows it out of proportion. All these websites are doing is spreading gossip/hearsay, and unless you hear it from us, you can’t believe everything you read.”

However, now the Sitch is singing a different tune.

He blogs:

“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.”

Yesterday, his rep told Celebuzz he’s been at an “undisclosed location,” saying:

“Michael Sorrentino (“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.”

There are also reports that the Sitch is staying at the Cirque Lodge in Utah, where stars such as Lindsay Lohan have been treated.
