Tori Spelling’s husband Dean McDermott, who has faced cheating rumors since the holidays, has entered rehab, People.com reported Thursday. He issued an exclusive statement to the gossip site apologizing for the “mistakes” he has made and the suffering his indiscretions have caused his family.

According to sources who spoke to People, McDermott, 47, is participating in an intensive treatment program, but is allowed to visit his family at home. He and Spelling have four children together: Liam, 6, Stella, 5, Hattie, 2, and Finn, 15 months. "Their priority right now is their children," the source said.

"I am truly sorry for the mistakes I have made and for the pain I've caused my family," his statement said. "I take full responsibility for my actions and have voluntarily checked myself into a treatment center to address some health and personal issues. I am grateful to be getting the help I need so I can become the husband and father my family deserves." 

Spelling, 40, is "devastated," a source told People.com last month. Apparently, she is "much more heartbroken than anyone realized."

The insider continued that she is staying strong for the children, but whether or not she will stay with her troubled husband is unknown. "She could stay with him or not,” the source said. “God only knows."

Rumors of McDermott’s alleged infidelity occurred while he was in Toronto to promoted his new cooking show, "Chopped Canada." "He told me he and Tori had a sexless marriage," his supposed mistress Emily Goodwin, 28, told Us Weekly. “I believed him.”
