Director and producer Adam Shankman has checked into rehab.

The 49-year-old's rep confirmed the news in a statement to Us Weekly Monday.

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

It is unclear for what he is seeking treatment.

On Dec. 8, Shankman served as executive producer and director of the TrevorLIVE event in Hollywood. TrevorLIVE is a semi-annual event benefitting The Trevor Project, a suicide and crisis intervention group helping lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth.

He was smiling on the red carpet earlier in the night, E! News notes.

Shankman is best known for his directorial and choreography work. He has directed episodes of popular TV shows like "Glee" and "Modern Family," as well as big-screen flicks like "Rock of Ages," "Hairspray," "Cheaper By the Dozen 2" and "A Walk to Remember."
