The news comes about two weeks after a tattoo model and stripper announced she had a long-term affair with James while he was married to Hollywood actress Sandra Bullock. Several other women have since come forward to claim they, too, had sex with James during his five-year marriage to the best-actress Oscar winner. Bullock has not publicly commented on the allegations, but she reportedly has moved out of the home she shared with James and his three children from previous relationships.
"Jesse checked himself into a treatment facility to deal with personal issues," his representative said in a statement issued to People.com Wednesday. "He realized that this time was crucial to help himself, help his family and help save his marriage."
The Web site said the publicist did not disclose what type of treatment James is seeking or when he checked into the facility.
