Judge on Fox Show Goes Into Rehab Us

One of the judges on a competition series that airs on Fox has entered a rehab program. Us Weekly reports that 49-year-old Adam Shankman, a judge on “So You Think You Can Dance,” took the step.

In a statement, his rep said Shankman "is currently seeking treatment in a rehabilitation center. His friends and family support him and wish him well on his journey to recovery."

Shankman, who directed the feature films "A Walk to Remember," "Bringing Down the House" and the 2007 remake of "Hairspray," is also a producer, dancer, actor and choreographer.

The report adds: "Shankman's good friend and 'Hairspray' star Zac Efron recently completed his own stint in rehab. The 26-year-old actor secretly entered rehab this past spring to deal with alcohol and cocaine problems. Efron had 'been struggling with this problem for years and finally realized he needed outside help,' a source told Us of the 'High School Musical' star at the time."
