Us Weekly reports that singer LeAnn Rimes has decided to spend 30 days in a rehab treatment facility. The star has just celebrated her 30th anniversary and is determined to make some changes in her life.
LeAnn Rimes has often been criticized by the media for being too skinny, but the singer and her husband have rejected all eating disorder rumors. On Wednesday, however, the country musician announced that she will be spending the next 30 days in a rehab treatment facility. Rimes specified that she decided to go to rehab because she needed a cure for her emotional issues and not because she is addicted to alcohol or other substances.
LeAnn and her husband, Eddie Cibrian, are aware that her treatment will trigger many speculations, but she felt she needed professional help to learn how to cope with her anxiety and stress. In the end, the two celebrities told the press that they will very much appreciate if their privacy will be respected.
LeAnn Rimes declared in a recent interview that the recent rumors about a possible eating disorder she may be suffering from were not the reason why she decided to go to rehab. In her opinion, the anxiety and stress treatments she will receive in the facility will enable her to comeback as “the best 30-year-old woman” she can be. This way, she hopes she will no longer be affected by all the things that take place in her life.
The declaration of the “Can’t Fight The Moonlight” interpreter caused even more confusion among tabloids, especially since Rimes’ personal life has always been great. Her husband, Eddie Cibrian and her two sons, Mason, 7, and Jake, 5 have always showed her support and protected her from the accusations she has been subject to, lately. In fact, Cibrian stated in an interview with People magazine that he is very proud of his wife for finally taking some time for herself. He described her as a very courageous woman due to the decision she has made.
