MTV reportedly worried about “The Situation” for years now

HollywoodNews.com: ‘Jersey Shore’ star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino recently went to rehab for rumored problems like prescription pills and alcohol, but it seems the problem is an old one.
It is rumored that MTV has been trying to get him to clean up his act for a number of seasons now, states TMZ. The network reportedly started confronting him about his problem during Season 2 of the show, and allegedly started to see improvement during Season 4 in Italy.
However, it sounds like Jersey became a problem for “The Situation” as he allegedly carried on like he used to once they all returned home for Season 5.
Now, while MTV has allegedly threatened him with a recasting, it seems he is ready to get some professional help.
Do you think he will get and stay better?
