LeAnn Rimes Is Getting Treatment for “Anxiety and Stress”

Let’s take a look at the statements first, all right? Because a lot of people felt the need to make a statement on this.

First, here’s the official one from LeAnn‘s rep:

“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.”

And here’s how Eddie feels:

“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.”

And finally, here’s what LeAnn herself had to say:

“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.”

She just checked in yesterday, and her rep wants to make sure that everyone knows that this has nothing to do with any sort of eating disorder, because LeAnn definitely doesn’t have one of those.

This is good though, right? We’ve all thought that LeAnn has been sort of unstable for a while now, so it’s nice that she’s going to work on that. Hopefully now she can realize that her creepy and weird and threatening tweets are not the best way to handle things.

  • What is she stressed about? To many vacations and parties? I wonder if Leeann is on some kind of medication that would account for the crazy stuff she been up too.

  • Big IF here, but IF she really is in treatment for anxiety then I am really glad for her. I know the torture of self induced anxiety attacks and all of the things that come with it. If that’s really her issue then I am really happy for her that she is finally going to get help with it. But I don’t know if I really believe that, so hard to tell with how much everyone lies in Hollywood.

  • Nah, just stressed out from deciding which bikini to wear today, or if she’s already been photographed in that one etc etc

  • “I’ll have the tools”

    Ech. Such an annoying phrase. Right up there with the overuse of the word journey. “Oh my foray into mixed media scrapbooking has been such a journey.” Bleurgh.

      • Heheh Oh God! “At the end of the day” is my number one most hated! :D
        I used to know a complete asshole who said that aaaaall the time. It was possible to say it all the time because he also lectured everyone constantly on every subject, and that was his way of wrapping it up.
        *Punches his imaginary head through the wall.*

  • Well Leann is married to a serial cheater who makes her hang out publicly with his mistress, so why wouldn’t she be “stressed” or have “anxiety”?

    I find it funny that for someone who has been so stressed out due to cyberbullying, she has been giving exclusives via her lawyer all day long to TMZ and Celebuzz.

    The the media should be asking what is the media about to release about Eddie because her rehab stay has something to do with his cheating ways.
