Adam Shankman, the 49-year-old director of such kitsch classics as Hairspray (2007) and Rock of Ages (2012), has checked himself into a rehabilitation center. Currently, there’s no word yet as to which facility he’s attending or what disorder is being treated.

In fact, only the briefest of statements from Shankman’s representatives to Us Weekly confirmed that he had made the move. "Adam Shankman is currently seeking treatment in a rehabilitation center," the statement said. "His friends and family support him and wish him well on his journey to recovery." Just two days before he checked in, Shankman served as director and executive producer of the semi-annual TrevorLIVE event in Los Angeles, which benefits The Trevor Project, a suicide and crisis prevention group that caters to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth. According to multiple sources, Shankman was in good spirits at the event.

Shankman began his career as a dancer and choreographer in musical theater, and has been seen in music videos for Paula Abdul and Janet Jackson. He has served as a judge on the reality series So You Think You Can Dance and made his directing debut with The Wedding Singer (2001).
