Looks like it's one more ride on the rehab rollercoaster for actress Melanie Griffith.

People magazine confirmed that the actress has checked herself into the Cirque Lodge facility in Utah. The stay is "part of a routine plan that was designed between her and her doctors years ago," according to Melanie's publicist, Robin Baum.

Meanwhile, Star magazine reported that Griffith checked herself in to save her marriage to actor Antonio Banderas.

"The reason Melanie checked in was her husband was demanding that she get clean and sober," says a source quoted in Star. "He told her that if she didn't get the help she needed it would be the end of their marriage."

This isn't the first time the 52-year-old star has turned to rehab for help. She has battled drug and alcohol addiction for decades, but according to Star reports, the latest bender may have put Banderas over the edge.

An insider tells Star that Griffith is "working with the counselors on getting control of her demons."

According to yet another source, "Melanie's struggling right now, but Antonio has been checking in on her as much as he is allowed, making sure she gets back on her feet. Without Antonio in her life, I honestly believe Melanie would be dead."

We don't know who these sources are and sure hope that's not the case, but wish her good luck in recovery.
