Mel Enters Rehab

Mel Gibson is acting fast. After the mess from this weekend and the backlash and boycotting that has begun, Mel has checked himself into a recovery program otherwise known as a fancy vacation. Star broke the exclusive. Here's more:

Mel Gibson has checked himself into a recovery program for alcohol, the troubled actor's rep Alan Neirob, exclusively tells Star. "He is in a program of recovery at this time," Neirob says.

Plus, Chris Prentiss, a neighbor of Gibson's and the co-founder of celebrity treatment centre Passages in Malibu, Calif., tells Star: "I understand he has gone into recovery program. The center that I've heard he's checked himself into follows the Alcoholics Anonymous 12-step program. And I don't believe that will help him."

Prentiss — who refused to name the rehab center he's heard Gibson is in — adds: "I think he needs individual intense therapy by a team of people who know what they are looking for in causes in alcoholism.
