According to the new National Enquirer, Robin Williams has entered rehab. The mag says Williams checked himself into Hazelden treatment facility “in a desperate bid to beat a three-year battle with booze that’s threatening to destroy his marriage.”

The article says: “The Oscar-winning actor’s drinking was so out of control that he suffered repeated blackouts, sources say, and after he was photographed hugging a waitress in a bar on May 22, his wife Marcia slapped him with an ultimatum: Get help or I’m leaving.”

Robin’s publicist released this statement today: “After 20 years of sobriety, Robin Williams found himself drinking again and has decided to take proactive measures to deal with this for his own well-being and the well-being of his family. He asks that you respect his and his family’s privacy during this time. He looks forward to returning to work this fall to support his upcoming film releases.”
