It looks like LeAnn Rimes’ rehab is underway! Her life with Eddie Cibrian isn’t all rainbows and chirping birds after all. But then, that expectation is kind of unrealistic when you begin your relationship as the third wheel in your boyfriend’s pre-existing marriage. Anyway, the country crooner has decided that age 30 will be a turning point for her and she has checked herself in to a 30 day treatment center to try and sort out her mental mess.
“LeAnn has voluntarily entered a 30 day in-patient treatment facility to cope with anxiety and stress,” her rep Marcel Pariseau tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. “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 cheery sounding statement about her hopes for recovery saying,
“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,” she adds. “I’ll have the tools to know how to deal with them.”
It’s really a great thing that LeAnn has finally come to realize that her current tools aren’t exactly the best. There are so many things potentially wrong here that it’ll take 30 days just to get to the bottom of it. She spent the last month boozed up in a bikini partying non-stop. She has also been plagued with eating disorder rumors ever since she and Eddie hooked up and anyone who has ever had disordered eating patterns will tell you just by looking that LeAnn is not healthy at all.
Hopefully LeAnn Rimes’ rehab will allow her to pull herself together and get the help that she needs. I wonder, if she sobers up and gains a bit of healthy weight will Eddie then leave her for a younger, skinnier costar? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
