Grey's Anatomy Cast: Justin Chambers is Fine

at . Comments

After checking in an out of the UCLA Medical Center's psychiatric ward, Justin Chambers is doing just fine, according to the Grey's Anatomy cast.

"[Justin Chambers] just needed a break," says James Pickens, Jr., who recently spoke with the actor. "He said, 'Man I'm fine.'"

At the NAACP Image Awards Nominee luncheon Saturday in Beverly Hills, Ca., Pickens told People that Chambers, who recently left town, was headed to Arizona with his family because he just wanted to chill.

"He thanked everybody for their concern but everybody's good," says Pickens.

Also at the luncheon, co-star Chandra Wilson said, "Everybody goes through stuff. It's no different than anybody else in the world. We just happen to be in the public eye ... Justin's doing just fine."

Chandra Wilson says co-star Justin Chambers will be alright.

A rep for Justin Chambers said that the actor, who plays Dr. Alex Karev on Grey's Anatomy, chose to voluntarily check himself into the psychiatric ward because he was exhausted and suffers from a sleeping disorder.

The UCLA Medical Center, of course, is the same facility where Britney Spears was recently admitted and placed on psychiatric hold for nearly a week.

An Ohio native, Justin Chambers, 37, and his wife, Keisha Chambers, have been married for over a decade and have five children.
