Melanie Griffith Checks Into Rehab!

We didn't see this one coming. Melanie Griffith has checked herself into rehab in Utah to get rid of her 'demons'.

"She is there to reinforce her commitment to stay healthy. This is part of a routine plan that was designed between her and her doctors years ago," Melanie’s publicist, Robin Baum, told Star magazine of the actress' stay at Cirque Lodge in Utah.

But an insider tells Star she agreed to go to rehab to save her marriage. "She's working with the counselors on getting control of her demons."

"The reason Melanie checked in was her husband was demanding that she get clean and sober," another source tells Star. "He told her that if she didn't get the help she needed it would be the end of their marriage."

According to a third source, "Melanie's struggling right now, but Antonio has been checking in on her as much as he is allowed, making sure she gets back on her feet. Without Antonio in her life, I honestly believe Melanie would be dead."

This isn't the first time Melanie has checked herself into rehab. Back in 1998 she spent some time at Daniel Freeman Hospital after developing an addiction to painkillers following a neck injury.

In 2007 she sent her then 18 year-old daughter Dakota to rehab at Visions Teen Treatment Centre in Malibu after discovering that she had a drug and alcohol problem.

We hope Melanie finally gets the help she desperately needs. It must be hard on her and the family to deal with a personal issue like this with the entire world watching.
