Via PopEater: "After dealing with the stress of the past year, Catherine made the decision to check in to a mental health facility for a brief stay to treat her Bipolar II Disorder," her rep confirms.
In addition to her duties as an actress and mother, Zeta-Jones has dealt with more than enough stress in the past few years to merit some much-needed time off and TLC.
In 2010, Zeta-Jones' stepson, Cameron Douglas, was sentencedd to five years in prison for drug-related charges, and only four months later, her actor husband was diagnosed with cancer. In between the devastating events, Michael Douglas was also sued by his ex-wife, Diandra, who claimed she was entitled to 50 percent of the profits from his film 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.'
Zeta-Jones has since been released from treatment and is said to be gearing up to begin taping two films.
