Actor Cory Monteith has checked into a rehabilitation center for substance addiction. The "Glee" star, 30, has voluntarily sought help for his problems.

His rep told "(Monteith) has voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction. He graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery."

The actor, who is dating his television co-star Lea Michele, tweeted on Thursday: "such a beautiful day! truly seeing the forest for the trees. #gratitude."
