Update: Mike Sorrention's rep denies he's in rehab, E! reports, and The Situation tweeted, "Don't believe everything you read or hear."

Been wondering why you haven’t heard much from The Situation after he got back from that perilous, drama-filled trip to Australia earlier this month? Turns out, it’s because he’s been in rehab!

On the evening of March 20, TMZ reported that the Jersey Shore star has checked into an inpatient treatment program.

Sitch’s rep tells TMZ the reality star "has spent the past several weeks at an undisclosed location for much needed rest and recuperation after his extensive production and appearance schedule."

As things stand, The Situation is still scheduled to appear on the just-renewed 6th Season of Jersey Shore. Pregnant Snooki... and a post-rehab Situation? This is definitely shaping up to be quite the season!
