Jesse James checks into treatment facility

Posted: 08:17 AM ET

( - With his marriage to Sandra Bullock in crisis and his family's future on the line, Jesse James is seeking professional help, his rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

"Jesse checked himself into a treatment facility to deal with personal issues," his rep said in a statement. "He realized that this time was crucial to help himself, help his family and help save his marriage."

While the rep did not specify the type of treatment facility, one source confirms he checked in on March 26, and that it was "100 percent his own idea" - and not the result of an ultimatum from Bullock.

A cheating scandal that exploded on March 15 has sent James' nearly five-year marriage to Bullock, 45, into a tailspin with claims that he had affairs with at least four women. Bullock has moved out of the family home and is considering her options, another source says.

Before seeking treatment, James, 40, spent much of the last two weeks sticking to a routine, hanging out with his three kids and dropping them off at school and burying himself at work at West Coast Choppers in Long Beach, California.

Perhaps this "treatment" will become popular and cheating spouses who cannot afford to pay for such "treatment" can ask the taxpayers to pay for this also.

Keep right on walking Sandra, I know it isn't easy and no matter what other people say or do. The marriage is over. These men that do this kinda of stuff need to loose. The money and most of all the family. Instead of the woman standing by their side. You didn't do anything wrong. I wish them both the best and that they pull their lives back together for the children.And Sandra you are a class act... Hold that head up high lady .

I support Sandra Bullocks reported separation in advance of her divorce. Throw Jessie under the bus and move on Sandra, the BUM isn't worth it!

What is rehab suppose to do with him. Bullock just made a mistake like many of us women do. She just didn't know who she was really married to. Sandra, sweetie every fan of yours love you dearly and it's best you found out who he really is now than later. You will find Mr. Right – he is out there. Get up – dust yourself off – hold your head up high – and go! Good luck! And May God Bless You!

He is disgusting. Who in their right mind would want to save that marriage.....

This treatment is all a bunch of crap! So this is the new thing .....cheat on your wife ......with SEVERAL women ......get busted ......then go to some kind of treatment! The treatment has become a cheating pass for men! This makes it okay for some to cheat because now they can say, " I'm a sex addict, so I had no control over my actions with these other women ". Gimme a break!

So far Sandra seems smarter than Elin. I hope she does get out of the marriage. She's pretty, intelligent and she has a successful Hollywod career. She could have any man she wants. Once there's infidelity..... the marriage will NEVER be the same. The trust factor has gone out the window. Elin and Tiger aren't kidding anyone. They're just going through the motions for the sake of the public/media and Tigers return to golf. That marriage is over. Honestly I don't know how Elin could even lay in the same bed with Tiger nevermind being intimate him.....Yuk!

Please Sandra....walk away with the pride you have left! All wounds heal. Jessie James will regret this mistake for the rest of his life. From looking at the other women, you're the best thing that ever happened to him. Look at this as his loss.....your gain. Pick up the pieces and move on.

If Sandra Bullock ever takes that piece of garbage back.

All the sympathy folks have demonstrated on her behalf will be taken back.

In fairness to ???JESSE JAMES"???

The appropriate end for him should be the same for him.

Have Jesse get on a chair and hang a picture, and may the last thing he hears be a LOUD BANG.

They only sign up for "treatment" after they get caught. When all the "treatment" is over, you are still left with a lying, cheating skunk. There is no "treatment" for that. You can peel back all the layers, but all you will find is a rotten person through and through.......Tiger is the same animal.

This is not the same as the tiger situation....
a) no children from the union
b) Sandra has her own career
c) Tiger does have values and clearly exhibited sex addiction to his detriment
d)Jesse James is just a sleeze Tiger isn't.

Need I say more

Not only is Jesse James a "bad boy biker", he is not to smart. He has had his chance and he blew it. In my opinion as a 62 year old male, Jesse could not have done much better than Sandra Bullock. She has every right to get rid of the bum. Treatment? The man should be horse whipped! He's toast.

she's a sweetheart, so is her sister, Gesine. 2 peas in a pod, their Dad should be proud, she will have a great life w/out him ...

What these Skanks that chase Married Men dont realize is that they are doing a diservice to all Women incluing your sister, mother, daughters. When you fool around with a married man and you know it how can you think he will be faithful to you if he cant be faithful to a women he took vows with? Sex and Love are not the same thing

I feel for Sandra – But she had to have know of Jesse's past
and she hooked up with him herself while his last wife was Preg with his daughter – yes they were splitting up but In my opionion he was not available then too – maybe he figured Sandra knew what he was like . . . just a thought

I hope she can move on and be happy again – Women

I think she was to good for him from the start. She can do much better. I love her as an actress. She has a lot going for her. Move on girl you don't need him.

Loved her 2 past movies "While You Were Sleeping" & "Hope Floats"..& of couest "Blind Side" a Hope Floats,,her husband leaves her for another woman even tho they have a daughter..but there is a happy ending..a happy ending in While you were Sleeping also ...

I made a mistake in the last part of my statement, I ment to say God forbid his daughter makes bad choices when she starts dating...

Eddie   April 1st, 2010 9:16 am ET

I hope Sandra has her own mind and knows what her marriage is to her and not all these bruised, heart broken women. If her marriage is based on love, & forgiveness she will find it to forgive & forget. If its not love its easy to walk away......Not every relationship is over because someone cheats. Real love goes beyond errors and mistakes....good times & bad times! Whats wrong with you shallow thinking people? YOU don't know what love is. Because YOU don't love somebody! If she loves him SHE'LL stay. THE MEDIA, & PEOPLE THAT WERE IN RELATIONSHIPS WHERE LOVE WAS NOT THE FOUNDATION WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND....................
