Dean McDermott Checks Into Rehab; Apologizes For Mistakes, Causing Family Pain

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Tori Spelling's husband, Dean McDermott, has entered rehab and issued a vague apology for his mistakes and the pain that he has caused his family.

The reality star doesn't overtly admit his infidelity, but amid the cascade of rumors over the past month, the writing is on the wall in McDermott's mea culpa.

"I am truly sorry for the mistakes I have made and for the pain I've caused my family," McDermott, who is accused of cheating on Tori last month, tells People.

"I take full responsibility for my actions and have voluntarily checked myself into a treatment center to address some health and personal issues," he adds.

Without mentioning Emily Goodhand, he concludes, "I am grateful to be getting the help I need so I can become the husband and father my family deserves."

The specifics are vague, but McDermott, 47, is said to be receiving intense treatment. He is still allowed to leave to visit his and Spelling's four children.

He and Spelling are parents to Liam, 6, Stella, 5, Hattie, 2, and Finn, 1.

"Their priority right now is their children," a source says of the family, which has understandably been rankled by the events that went down in Toronto.

McDermott was in the Canadian city filming Chopped Canada when he met and slept with Emily Goodhand two nights in a row ... according to Goodhand.

She took the story public, and Tori, 40, is said to be crushed.

Earlier this month, a friend of Tori said that Spelling was heartbroken and "devastated ... much more than anyone realized" about the situation with Dean.

She's been putting on a good front, and is said to be staying strong for her kids, but the friend added: "She could stay with him or not. God only knows."

What do you think: Should Tori divorce Dean?
