LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- As alleged mistresses continue to come out of the woodwork and Sandra Bullock remains silent and unseen, Jesse James has checked himself into rehab.
A rep for the West Coast Choppers boss released a statement confirming reports that the star had entered a rehab facility to seek help.
“Jesse checked himself into a treatment facility to deal with personal issues,” his rep said in a statement to People. “He realized that this time was crucial to help himself, help his family and help save his marriage.”
A source told People that rehab was “100 percent his own idea.”
James’ rehab stint comes just two weeks after allegations first emerged that the reality star cheated on his Oscar-winning wife with a tattooed woman named Michelle “Bombshell” McGee.
Several women have also been linked to James since McGee’s claims first surfaced in In Touch magazine. McGee claimed she had an 11-month affair with James, including while Bullock was away filming her role in “The Blind Side,” the movie Bullock won an Oscar for earlier this month.
