Responding to numerous reports that he's in rehab for substance abuse, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino released his own statement, via Facebook.
"I want to set the record straight. I have voluntarily taken steps to get control of a prescription medication problem I had due to exhaustion," Sorrentino said. "I have spent the past several weeks getting treatment for this problem and recuperating from my work and appearance schedule. I appreciate my fans [sic] support and love you guys."
The Facebook message continued, "It is important for us, and for The Situation, to let our fans know the truth behind what is actually going on, and getting treatment is something Mike has done on his own volition. We appreciate your continued support and well wishes for Mike as he gets the treatment he needs."
Insiders are glad Mike is getting the help he needs in order to join his castmates for a 6th season, which is scheduled to start filming this summer.
MTV said, "We have no comment about Mike but fully expect and are looking forward to the entire cast returning for a sixth season."
