LeAnn Rimes Checks Into Rehab
Just after celebrating her 30th birthday, country music singer LeAnn Rimes has checked into a 30-day rehabilitation program, according to a statement released to People.com.
Rimes checked into the facility on Wednesday, one day after her 30th birthday, for help with "anxiety and stress."
Here is the statement released from her rep, Marcel Pariseau:
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."
Rimes, who recorded her first albums in Tyler, added the following to People:
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."
