Jesse seeks help to save marriage

Sandra Bullock's husband Jesse James is reportedly seeking professional help to deal with "personal issues" after claims he had cheated put their nearly five-year marriage in jeopardy.

The motorcycle builder's representative told People magazine in a statement that Jesse "realised that this time was crucial to help himself, help his family and help save his marriage".

The rep did not specify the type of treatment facility involved.

Actress Sandra was on a career high that culminated with an Oscar win for her performance in The Blind Side just before internet rumours of Jesse's infidelity surfaced.

The couple had walked hand-in-hand down the Academy Awards red carpet, celebrated together at the parties afterward and were photographed outside a Long Beach burger joint the day after the awards.
