*The Denzel Washington camp is not happy with TMZ‘s report that the acclaimed actor had a wild and crazy July that required him to detox from alcohol and more. And get this, the detox treatment supposedly went down in an Orange County residence for more than two weeks.

“Entertainment Tonight” is reporting that his rep is saying that’s not what the real deal is.

“He does this health cleanse every time he’s about to go back to work and start his conditioning and nutritional program. Always cleans up after the family vacation in prep for work. Nothing new.”

Hmm, that explanation kinda creates more questions than it answers, but since it’s all we go at this point, we’ll have to go with it.

By the way, Washington, 59, will be promoting his latest project, “The Equalizer,” on a worldwide tour. In the film, he plays the role of Robert McCall, a former black ops commando who faked his own death to live a quiet Boston life. He will come out of retirement to rescue a young girl and face Russian gangsters.

The “Equalizer” is set for release on September 26.
