LeAnn Rimes has checked herself into an in-patient treatment facility for the next thirty days for anxiety and stress, a source has revealed. The announcement was made on Wednesday, just a day after she turned 30-years-old.
A source said, “She has a lot of mental anguish. She’s incredibly hard on herself. She really does have a lot of anxiety.”
LeAnn’s rep, Marcel Pariseau said, “LeAnn has voluntarily entered a 30 day in-patient 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.”
LeAnn also issued a more personal statement regarding the matter. She said, “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.”
Her husband, Eddie Cibrian commented, “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.”
