Jesse James checks into treatment facility

Sandra Bullock’s husband, Jesse James, has checked into a treatment facility to “deal with his personal issues,” his rep tells People. “He realized that this time was crucial to help himself, help his family, and help save his marriage,” the rep is quoted as saying.  The type of treatment facility was not disclosed. TMZ says they spoke with a therapist at Sierra Tucson rehab who confirms that James is at that facility, which specializes in drug, alcohol, and sex addiction. A source tells People James checked into the facility on March 26 and that it was “100 percent his own idea.”

Adding to James’ woes this week, a much talked about photo of him making a Nazi salute while wearing an SS officer’s hat is now making the rounds in the media.

Bullock, who has been married to James for almost five years, has reportedly moved out of their home since the revelation that he has engaged in at least four extramarital affairs. James has publicly apologized for bringing “pain and embarrassment beyond comprehension” upon his wife and children, though in his apology, he also claimed that the “vast majority of the allegations reported are untrue and unfounded.”
