Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino took to his blog to clarify the reports that he’s drying out in rehab.
The Sitch, 29, wrote, “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.”
But not so fast. TMZ is saying that the “Jersey Shore” star might have an addiction to prescription drugs, but he’s also got a problem with alcohol.
A source tells the gossip site that The Situation went through detox at a facility before he checked into Cirque Lodge in Utah, and the detox involved alcohol.
The source went on to say that he is “very open” with the people at Circue and talks about his drinking problem. He has apparently even discussed how his club appearances have escalated the issue.
We wonder how much scrambling MTV is doing right now. Because really, what’s a season of “Jersey Shore” without every cast member drinking alcohol?
A rep for MTV has told the Huffington Post that the network fully expects and is “looking forward” to the entire cast returning for a sixth season of the reality show.
