The Situation Calls Rehab Rumors "Ridiculous Embellishments"

by at . Comments

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino says he's getting a much-need breather, but denies (mostly) that he is in rehab for any sort of substance abuse problem.

After TMZ reported that Sitch was in rehab Tuesday, a rep for the Jersey Shore star said that he was at an undisclosed location "for much needed rest."

The rep chalked that up to "his extensive production and appearance schedule." Now Mike's personally commenting on the (sorry) situation as well:

Mike The Sitch

He didn't flat out deny it, but called out TMZ for "ridiculous embellishments."

"You can't believe everything you hear about 'the situation' with The Situation," he wrote on his blog, hilariously called Sitch News, early Wednesday.

The GTL-loving reality star added, "This is just like the child hood game of 'telephone.' Someone hears a small rumor and blows it out of proportion."

"All these websites are doing is spreading gossip / hearsay, and unless you hear it from us, you can't believe everything you read," Situation said, before posting the aptly-titled YouTube video of Adele's "Rumour Has It." Good song!

Whether or not he's got a problem, we're looking forward to a refreshed Mike heading back to Seaside Heights for Jersey Shore Season 6 this summer.

UPDATE: TMZ just reported that Situation is undergoing rehab at the famous Cirque Lodge in Utah, for addiction to prescription medication.
