American Pie actor Chris Klein was arrested last week on suspicion of drunk driving after he was stopped by officers who witnessed his vehicle weaving on an L.A. freeway. His rep, Jaime Primak, reports that his client has voluntarily checked himself into rehab at Cirque Lodge in Utah, where he will complete a 30 day alcohol addiction program.
“After recent events, Chris was forced to take a clear look at a problem he has been trying to deal with himself for years. He understands now that he cannot beat this disease alone. He thanks everyone for their support as he take all the necessary steps to deal with his addiction and asks for your privacy while doing so.”
Klein had a five year relationship with Katie Holmes which ended in 2005. After a brief relationship with Lindly Gardner in 2006, he and Ginnifer Goodwin were together for two years. Their relationship ended in December 2008.
His latest movie project, “American Pie 4”, is in pre-production and is slated for a 2012 release.
This is the second alcohol related arrest for Chris. He was arrested for DUI in San Diego County in 2005.
We wish him strength during his recovery.
