Singer LeAnn Rimes, who turned 30 on April 30, checked herself into rehab for anxiety and stress. Said Rimes, "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." However, the show must go on for the "Spitfire" singer who, according to a rep, will still tour this fall and "report back after each weekend."
Although Rimes sued her father when she was a teen, the last couple of years have been the wildest for Mrs. Cibrian. What were some of her top troubles?
LeAnn Rimes and Deane Sheremet divorce
It was the divorce between Rimes and Sheremet that really set it off for the singer. Rimes cheated on Sheremet with her "Northern Lights" co-star Eddie Cibrian who left his wife, Brandi Glanville, the mother of his two children, for Rimes. The singer made famous for her album "Blue" married the actor in April of 2011. "I take responsibility for everything I've done. I hate that people got hurt. But I don't regret the outcome," said Rimes.
The Shape magazine scandal
The editor-in-chief of Shape, Valerie Latona, apologized to readers who expressed concerns that Rimes was featured on the cover despite the fact that Rimes admitted to adultery.
When the prolific tweeter found out about the apology, she tweeted, "Just so all my fans know, I'm getting to the bottom of this. It's the first I've heard of this. Shape is throwing me a party next week as a thank you and a congrats for being on their cover for the 3rd time. I find this very contradictory. I love you all!!"
Too much weight loss?
Rumors have spread that the singer is struggling with an eating disorder. However, Rimes has always rejected the notion. "I'm glad there are people out there that are smarter than that and they don't buy into it." said Rimes. With regards to Rimes recently checking herself in for emotional issues, a rep says the singer is not seeking treatment for an eating disorder or for substance abuse.
