Justin Chambers Checks Into UCLA Psych Ward

at . Comments

Actor Justin Chambers, who plays Dr. Alex Karev on Grey's Anatomy, checked himself in to the psych ward at UCLA Medical Center this week.

A rep for Chambers, who has five children with wife Keisha, said he was "exhausted and suffers from a sleeping disorder" and "went in voluntarily to get help."

Justin Chambers' character remains one of Grey's Anatomy's best.

Interestingly, Chambers was in the same ward where Britney Spears is currently being treated for bipolar disorder, having been admitted early this morning.

Justin checked in Monday and left yesterday. Here's hoping he got the help he needs and is feeling better! We need him for those Izzie-Alex scenes...

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Arizona: Oh my God! I mean, I understand why you're into her. She's hot. Wait, she likes you?
Nathan: What? I mean, I'm going to try not to be offended at that.
Arizona: No, no, no. It's just that Derek was--Derek was epic for her. They were the great love story. I mean, that girl's heart beat for Derek Shepherd. It just...it never occurred to me that she would ever be with anyone else. He was perfect. He was everything. That man turned her world. It...I spooked you. Don't be spooked.
