LeAnn Rimes Enters Rehab For Anxiety And Stress Issues

LeAnn Rimes admitted herself to rehab just one day after her 30th birthday. LeAnn Rimes voluntarily entered a rehab facility for 30 days to help her cope with stress and anxiety, according to statements the singer’s representative, Marcel Pariseau, made to People.com. LeAnn Rimes’ representative also noted that, while privacy is not expected, it would be really appreciated.

Rimes noted publicly that she made the decision to enter rehab to “emotionally check out for a second” to learn how to take better care of herself. Developing coping mechanisms appears to be one of the primary goals of LeAnn Rimes’ rehab stay.

“All the things in my life will be there when I get out, but you know what? I’m hoping they’re not going to affect me as much. I’ll have the tools to deal with them,” LeAnn Rimes stated during the People.com interview.

LeAnn Rimes reportedly spent the month leading up to her 30th birthday “indulging” in a plethora of activities to mark the start of her third decade of life, the Daily Mail notes. On her birthday, LeAnn Rimes and husband Eddie Cibrian reportedly enjoyed a romantic dinner at a Malibu restaurant. Rimes allegedly looked very thin when spotted walking in a baggy shirt and long skirt while out on her 30th birthday date with Cibrian.

“I’ve been ready to leave my 20s behind. I had so many amazing things happen in my 20s, and I also had a lot of hard lessons to learn. I really have been truly excited about turning 30. I’m ready to be stronger than ever. It’s a new chapter,” LeAnn Rimes told People earlier this month.

LeAnn Rimes’ 30th birthday cake reportedly featured an image of herself wearing a bikini standing on a coffin. The county music singer told People the cake image meant she was “stompin’ on her 20s.” LeAnn Rimes also noted she has suffered from chronic psoriasis her entire life. During the past six years she noted she has felt healthier and her skin had cleared. Not long after LeAnn Rimes is slated to get out of rehab for her stress and anxiety issues, her Spitfire album will be released.
