As many Jersey Shore fans know, the show's resident bad boy, The Situation, is currently in rehab for prescription pills. While this isn't Mike's first stint in rehab — he went three years ago, before Jersey Shore — a source close to the star recently told TMZ that he hit rock bottom again while filming Jersey Shore Season 5.

According to the source, while Mike was showing signs of substance abuse before the show, "he was getting worse" over the course of Season 5.

Apparently multiple people on set noticed Sitch was "acting paranoid" during filming, which isn't exactly a surprise, since his behavior was so erratic it even seemed odd to us as viewers. The source thinks Sitch's problem was especially apparent during the camping trip on Season 5, Episode 10.

Sources also add that the cast and crew of the show are happy he's getting the help he needs.
