(NEW YORK) — Jersey Shore star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino “is not in rehab,” despite reports to the contrary, his representative told ABC News.
“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,” said the representative, Cindy Guagenti.
TMZ reported that Sorrentino was in rehab, but added that his representatives wouldn’t confirm he was is in a rehabilitation facility.
However, amid the reports of his possible rehab stint, Sorrentino tweeted, “Don’t believe everything you read or hear.”
Like many members of the hard-partying Jersey Shore cast, The Situation is paid handsomely for nightclub appearances – in some cases making up to $50,000 just to show up. Additionally, “Sitch” was apparently paid a half-million bucks to be the face of Devotion vodka, a protein-infused spirit.
MTV confirmed Monday that a sixth season of Jersey Shore will shoot this summer with the original cast.
