Eric Dane has checked himself into rehab, reports People. The "Grey's Anatomy" star has entered a rehab facility in Los Angeles to battle an addiction to painkillers.

The 38-year-old actor's rep has confirmed the news, stating: "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."

Last week it was confirmed that Dane and his wife, actress Rebecca Gayheart, are expecting their second child. The couple have one child, daughter Billie, who is 16 months old.
