After several weeks in rehab, Eva Mendes
has left the Cirque Lodge in Utah – but will be back.
"Eva is attending to some personal business in Los Angeles and intends to return to complete her treatment shortly," the actress's rep said in a statement Thursday.
Friday, when it was announced
that Mendes, 33, was in the Utah facility, where Lindsay Lohan
was also treated, her spokesperson told PEOPLE, "Eva has been working hard for the past year and made a positive decision to take some much-needed time off to proactively attend to some personal issues that, while not critical, she felt deserved some outside professional support."
