Denzel Washington’s health is not in jeopardy, despite an alarming report claiming the Oscar winner just spent “more than two weeks” in a “detox” program.

On Friday, TMZ reported Washington sought help after a “wild, alcohol-fueled, gluttonous month-long vacation” in which he was allegedly “partying and partying hard.”

Upon his return to Los Angeles, Washington had “professionals help him ‘detox,'” says the site.

But Gossip Cop hears that the actor was actually doing a routine cleanse, and starting a new workout program in anticipation of his next role.

“He does it regularly,” we’re told.

In other words: Nothing to see here, folks.
