Oscar-winning actress Catherine Zeta-Jones has allegedly checked into a treatment facility on Monday, April 29th to deal with her bipolar disorder, TMZ is reporting.

Zeta-Jones has been very open in the past about her battle with mental health issues. Following a similar stint at a Connecticut facility in 2011, Zeta-Jones went public with her story — though it hardly seemed voluntary. In 2012, Zeta-Jones confronted the issue head on during an interview with Good Morning America where she was markedly irritated by the line of questioning about her bipolar disorder. "You know what? I'm sick of talking about it because I never wanted to be the poster child for this," she asserted. "I never wanted this to come out publicly. It came out. I dealt with it in the best way I could and that was just saying that, 'Look, hey, I'm bipolar'. Everyone has things going on and we're doing the best we can. We can't jump from the rooftops shouting about, 'I have this, look at me, victim' - no. We all have issues in life and I'm really happy I have great friends, great support and that's all I can do."

But don't fret for Zeta-Jones just yet, as it is reported that her latest stint at the facility is for maintenance and is not the result of some sort of dramatic fall off the rails. Hollywood.com has reached out to a rep for Zeta-Jones, but had not heard back at the time of publication. We certainly wish Zeta-Jones much luck as she tends to her personal health needs.
