Jersey Shore star, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, has checked into rehab, but those in the reality star's camp insist he is not receiving treatment for substance abuse, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
Sorrentino's rep tells RadarOnline.com: "He is not in rehab for substance abuse. He has spent the last several weeks at an undisclosed location for much needed rest and recuperation after his extensive production and appearance schedule."
Meanwhile, a source close to the reality star says, "Mike is focusing on recuperation after a very long trip through Australia and getting rested up for season six. His friends and family know where he is, he just wants to get away from the public and be on his own for a bit to relax."
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, MTV announced Monday that the hit reality show will be returning for a sixth season, with all the major castmembers signed on.
