LeAnn Rimes has voluntarily checked into a rehab center. The country star checked herself into a rehab, citing stress as her main reason for going. We imagine it has a lot to do with the fact that she’s been under a lot of media scrutiny for both her weight and for being the other woman in a love triangle with her now husband Eddie Cibrian and his former wife, Brandi Glanville. We commend anyone who makes the difficult choice to seek treatment for personal issues. When you need to get back on track, there’s no shame in asking for help!
LeAnn’s rep told People magazine: “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.”
Rimes also issued her own statement: “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.”
We wish her the best of luck, and applaud her for being brave enough to recognize that she needs help. It takes guts!
