The stress of being LeAnn Rimes has finally gotten to LeAnn Rimes, who checked into a 30-day in-patient facility to cope with anxiety and stress shortly after her 30th birthday.
The country music star‘s representatives made it clear that LeAnn, bucking the popular trends for Hollywood celebrities these days, is NOT dealing with food, drug, or alcohol related problems. Her husband, TV’s Eddie Cibrian, praised Rimes for “having the strength to take time for herself.”
And as easy as it is to brush off these celebrity breakdowns, let us remember that since releasing her first album at age 14 in 1996, Rimes has recorded 10 studio albums, placed over 40 singles on American and international charts, won two Grammys, three Academy of Country Music awards,12 Billboard Music Awards, sold over 37 million records, and written two novels and two children’s books. So yeah, take a breather LeAnn—you've earned it.
