Jesse James

Well, that was quick.

After about a week into a 45-day rehab stint "to deal with personal issues" and save his disintegrating marriage, Jesse James has checked out, E! News has learned.

Sandra Bullock's beleaguered husband pulled the plug on his treatment at Arizona's Sierra Tucson clinic over the weekend amid escalating reports that she has no intention of reconciling.

But the real reason for James' hasty depature might be more mundane than any pending divorce drama.

"He was fed up with all the media leaks from inside. He had privacy and security concerns," a source tells E! News. James remains in "a program," per the insider, who couldn't specify where or what kind, and didn't rule out a return to Sierra Tucson.

There was no immediate comment from James' attorney on his whereabouts. Sierra Tuscon declined to comment, citing federal privacy restrictions.

James entered treatment on March 26. Days later, his rep issued a statement saying "Jesse checked himself into a treatment facility to deal with personal issues. He realized that this time was crucial to help himself, help his family and help save his marriage."

The 40-year-old Monster Garager's exit comes as a moving truck was spotted at the SoCal home where he and Bullock had lived together until three weeks ago, when word of his alleged cheating first became public. Bullock has since been hiding out at her house in the Hollywood Hills.

Why would Sandra be pissed? Perhaps there's a clue in our gallery of Jesse's Classy Ladies.
