Melanie Griffith has checked into a rehab facility, according to Star magazine.

“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, tells the tabloid.

That’s the publicist spin.

The ‘insider’ spin claims the 52-year-old actress is in a last-ditch attempt to save her 13-year marriage to Antonio Banderas, who is allegedly fed-up with her addictions.

“She’s working with the counselors on getting control of her demons,” a source tells Star.

This isn’t the first trip to rehab for Griffith, who’s getting treatment at the Cirque Lodge in Utah, the celebrity demon-slaying location where Kirsten Dunst, Eva Mendes and Lindsay Lohan, among others, also reportedly sought help.

Another ‘inside source’ says, “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.”
