Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino walks off the stage of the Jersey Shore Season 5 Reunion show set to air tonight.
According to NY Daily News, the reality star issued a statement to set the record straight about his recent trip to rehab:
“I have voluntarily taken steps to get control of a prescription medication problem I had due to exhaustion,” he said in the statement. “I have spent the past several weeks getting treatment for this problem and recuperating from my work and appearance schedule. I appreciate my fans support and love you guys.”
Sorrentino went through alcohol detox prior to checking into the Cirque Lodge in Utah, and cited club appearances for the reality show as a primary factor leading to his alcohol abuse.
