Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane, 38, has checked into a Los Angeles rehab clinic for an addiction to pain killers.
Said a statement from his rep:
- "Actor Eric Dane voluntarily checked himself into a treatment facility to help him get off of pain medication that he was prescribed for a sports injury that he suffered over the recent hiatus. He reports back to work next week. Business as usual."
"Business as usual"? That's an awfully casual way to talk about addiction.
The announcement comes just a few weeks after it was revealed that Dane's wife, Rebecca Gayheart, 39, is pregnant with their second child.
The couple already has a 16-month-old daughter, Billie.
Gayheart and Dane married in 2004.
