Leann Rimes enters 30-day Rehab to Deal with Stress & Anxiety

People Magazine is reporting that singer Leann Rimes’ representative, Marcel Pariseau, has confirmed the 30 year old singer has checked into rehab for 30 days to cope with anxiety and stress.

He told People.com: “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.”

The action is a responsible move by the starlet to learn the coping skills that will help her manage the weight of adulthood in healthy ways.

Rimes has the support of her husband Eddie Cibrian who professed his love and admiration for her.

In a statement to fans from her website, Rimes 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.’

Rimes, who has been preparing up for the upcoming release of her latest studio album, Spitfire and a fall tour – will continue to perform in September during breaks from treatment.

Marcel added: “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.”
