'Hairspray' Director Checks into Rehab
December 09, 2013
Director/producer/choreographer Adam Shankman has checked into rehab, Us Weekly reports.
"Adam Shankman is currently seeking treatment in a rehabilitation center," the 49-year-old director's rep told the news source. "His friends and family support him and wish him well on his journey to recovery."
Shankman, perhaps best known for directing the 2007 movie Hairspray, has become a triple threat, working as a choreographer on many projects (most recently Rock of Ages, which he also directed) in addition to producing the 82nd Annual Academy Awards.
The Emmy nominee's last public appearance was at the Trevor Live L.A. event on Sunday, which he attended alongside Darren Criss, Jane Lynch and Adam Lambert.
