There's been a lot of back and forth as to whether or not Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has checked into rehab for a substance abuse problem. However, the Jersey Shore star has now taken it upon himself to clear the air and offer a firsthand account as to what's really going on.
He posted the following statement on his website:
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.
So there you have it — straight from the Sitch's mouth, so to speak. And though he's not the first celebrity to rely too heavily on medication, prescribed or otherwise, you have to admire his honesty and willingness to get the help he needs.
We wish him the best of luck.
