"Grey's Anatomy" actor Justin Chambers sought help at UCLA Medical Center just days before Britney Spears did.
Chambers, who plays a bad boy with a sentimental side on the ABC medical drama, checked into the psych ward Monday, Jan. 28, and checked out yesterday (Jan. 30), reports TMZ.com. He did not encounter Spears, who was escorted by police to the same ward before dawn today.
The actor's rep claims that Chambers was "exhausted and suffers from a sleeping disorder and went in voluntarily to get some help."
Chambers is married and a father of five.
Chambers, 37, plays Dr. Alex Karev on "Grey's Anatomy." His other credits include "Cold Case," the TV movie "Hysterical Blindness" and on the big screen, "Liberty Heights" and "The Wedding Planner."
