Jersey Shore star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has admitted he has a prescription pill problem.
“I have voluntarily taken steps to get control of a prescription medication problem I had due to exhaustion,” the 29-year-old wrote on his Web site.
“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.”
While his rep has said he’s not in a rehab facility, TMZ is reporting that he is indeed at Cirque Lodge in Utah, whose alums include Lindsay Lohan and Mary-Kate Olsen.
According to TMZ, “The Situation is walking around Cirque, telling people he’s gained weight — and has made specific diet requests from the chef at the facility, hoping to get back into shape for the 6th Season of Jersey Shore.”
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino‘s publicist has slammed a TMZ report claiming the Jersey Shore star is in rehab for substance abuse.
According to a new E! report, the rep denies any claims that the reality TV star entered rehab for substance abuse, saying “He has spent the past several weeks at an undisclosed location for much needed rest and recuperation after his extensive production and appearance schedule.”
And The Situation took to Twitter this evening, to also vaguely slam the report. He tweeted, “Getting in amazing shape for season 6…Don’t believe everything you read or hear.”
Still, he sounds ready for action, tweeting: “Getting in amazing shape for season 6.”

Has Snooki outed her Jersey Shore c0-star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino?
When asked by the Huffington Post if The Situation is gay — citing rumors and the fact that he often doesn’t hook up with girls he brings back to their house on the show, Snooki said, “And he gives them men’s clothing to wear…He told me one time, ‘[All the talk is] making me wonder.’ ”
Their co-star J-Woww chimed in, much more confidently. “And his posture and the way he holds his cigarettes… everything. Listen, I know I keep talking about my best friend Joey, but his husband was closeted for 27 years of his life. And I knew him before he came out. So because of that I know… the signs.”
She says in summation, though, “I can’t confirm or deny with Mike, but if he was, it would all make sense.”
Snooki added that she’s enjoyed some same-sex sapphic activity before. “I would consider myself bi. I’ve done stuff with girls before,” she said. “But I would never be with a girl because I like … penis. But I’ve experimented.”
