A Sorrentino representative declined to confirm the Jersey Star star is in rehab when contacted by TMZ. Instead, the rep stated Sorrentino "has spent the past several weeks at an undisclosed location for much needed rest and recuperation after his extensive production and appearance schedule."

While things will definitely be a little different this time when they hit the boardwalk, their trademark hilarity and family dysfunction will remain the same," the network stated in a press release announcingJersey Shore's sixth season.
