Sylvester Stallone's younger brother Frank has checked into rehab in a bid to conquer his battle with alcohol.

The singer and actor turned to professionals at the Betty Ford Center in California over the weekend (05-06Jul14).

Frank Stallone's manager, Randi Siegel, tells People.com, "With the support of his friends and family, Frank is taking a much needed break from his professional activities to regroup and focus on his health and well-being.

"This opportunity will enable him to move forward in his career from a solid foundation."

Sylvester has given his 63-year-old sibling his backing for seeking treatment.

A representative for The Expendables star says, "Sylvester Stallone supports his brother's decision and this process."
