The Situation is allegedly in rehab for some mysterious reason and now his brother and business partner Marc Sorrentino (not to be confused with Frank, who dated Deena’s sister Joanie) is coming out and talking about his brother’s rumored issues.

"Michael is getting some much needed rest and relaxation,” March told TheWrap, echoing the same line that Mike’s rep has been repeating. “That's about it. I know there's conflicting reports out there, but, I'm sorry, I can't help the rumor mill."

While Marc wouldn’t delve into details about his brothers strange R&R trip, he stressed the “respect our privacy” line that is often used by celebrities entering rehab, going through divorces, and other non-positive news.

“[Mike is] getting ready for the next Jersey Shore,'" Marc said. . "So, really, please … that's about it. We've stated the same thing over and over again, and to many media outlets, and we respect everyone greatly. And I believe we deserve the same respect."

Mike’s behavior over the past year have pointed to signs of a possible drug abuse problem. During Season 5 he was repeatedly seen acting paranoid, sweating, and, in one episode, getting oddly obsessed with a campfire.

Either way, it sounds like Mike will be ready to film Season 6 of Jersey Shore come summer.

Jersey Shore airs Thursdays at 10 pm ET/PT on MTV.
