Jesse James has decided to confront his problems in an effort to save his five-year marriage to Sandra Bullock.
"Jesse checked himself into a treatment facility to deal with personal issues," his representative said in a Tuesday statement obtained by People.
"He realized that this time was crucial to help himself, help his family and help save his marriage."
While the representative did not provide any additional details about the facility or treatment, a source told People that the Jesse James is a Dead Man and former Monster Garage star checked in on March 26 and it was "100% his own idea" and not his wife's.
Two weeks ago, James was accused of carrying out an 11-month affair with tattoo model Michelle "Bombshell" McGee while Bullock was in Atlanta filming The Blind Side -- for which recently won the Oscar for Best Actress.
A second woman then claimed that she also had a two-year affair with James, while Los Angeles photographer Brigitte Daguerre subsequently stated they had sex four times after he hired her to do styling work for his West Coast Choppers in 2008.
