Adam Shankman, the openly gay director of Hairspray, Rock Of Ages and Bedtime Stories, has surprised many in Hollywood by announcing that he’s headed off to rehab to deal with an unspecified substance abuse issue. It was particularly unexpected as last weekend he directed and executive produced the Trevor Project’s TrevorLive event in Los Angeles.
US Weekly published a statement from Shankman’s representatives, simply saying, ‘Adam Shankman is currently seeking treatment in a rehabilitation center. His friends and family support him and wish him well on his journey to recovery.’
We wish him very well in his recovery.
