Leann Rimes has had enough! Girlfriend has checked herself into treatment for emotional issues. Who knew her life could be so stressful? Cripes, it’s not like she would have to worry about her husband possibly straying on her or anything. Her rep Marcel Pariseau confirmed the news to PEOPLE magazine saying, “LeAnn has voluntarily entered a 30 day in-patient treatment facility to cope with anxiety and stress. While there will be speculation regarding her treatment, she is simply there to learn and develop coping mechanisms. While privacy isn’t expected, it’s certainly appreciated.”
Rimes made sure to get her birthday celebration in first as she checked into treatment on Wednesday (her birthday was on Tuesday).
So why the hell is she so stressed? How is she going to get better other than probably a prescription for Xanax?
Leann said herself, “This is just a time for me to emotionally check out for a second and take care of myself and come back in 30 days as the best 30-year-old woman I can be. 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 know how to deal with them.”
Anxiety and stress? Girlfriend, been there and done that! Good for her for going in and getting herself some help.
Even though he is probably a part of the got damn problem, Eddie Cibrian is supporting his wife. He said, “My wife is the most remarkable and courageous woman I know. I am so proud of her for having the strength to finally take some time for herself. I will be with her every step of the way.”
Don’t worry though peeps, if you have tickets to see Leann perform in September she will be keeping her gigs. Leann’s rep said, “The facility has granted her permission to keep her weekend tour obligations, as LeAnn doesn’t want to disappoint her fans. She will report back after each weekend.”
Get better soon Leann and enjoy your mind vacay!
