Comedian John Mulaney reportedly entered rehab for alcohol and cocaine abuse over the weekend.

Mulaney will be at the rehab center in Pennsylvania for 60 days, according to a report published Monday by Page Six.

Mulaney has been open about his drinking habits throughout his career. In 2019, he revealed he began drinking at the age of 13. (RELATED: John Mulaney Says Secret Service Investigated Him After He Made A Joke About Trump On ‘SNL’)

“I drank for attention,” Mulaney told Esquire back in 2019. “I was really outgoing, and then at 12, I wasn’t. I didn’t know how to act. And then I was drinking, and I was hilarious again.”

“I wasn’t a good athlete, so maybe it was some young male thing of ‘This is the physical feat I can do. Three Vicodin and a tequila and I’m still standing,'” he said. “Who’s the athlete now?”

Mulaney first became sober at the age of 23, according to the outlet.

“I went on a bender that weekend that was just, like, fading in and out of a movie,” he told Esquire. “It was just crazy. A weekend that was … there were … I’m never going to tell you. That’s mine. I didn’t kill anyone or assault anyone. But yeah, I was like, ‘You’re f*cking out of control.’ And I thought to myself, ‘I don’t like this guy anymore. I’m not rooting for him.'”

Most recently Mulaney joined “Late Night with Seth Meyers” as a writer and has made appearances on the show since.
