Mary-Kate Olsen, the now-brunette half of the Olsen twins entertainment empire, has entered a treatment facility "to seek professional help for a health-related issue," her publicist said in a statement Tuesday.

According to The Associated Press, Us Weekly and People magazines both reported that Olsen has an eating disorder and entered the unidentified treatment center during the past few days to combat it, but Olsen's publicist, Michael Pagnotta, would not comment on those reports.

Mary-Kate and her sister, Ashley--who have been acting together since they were 9 months old, starting on the sitcom Full House and then in a series of direct-to-video movies--turned 18 on June 13 and are both planning to attend New York University in the fall.

Their big-screen debut, New York Minute, however, failed to connect with audiences after its May release, only taking in a only a measly $13.7 million.
