LeAnn Rimes Seeks "Stress & Anxiety" Treatment

Posted Thursday August 30, 2012 8:52 AM GMT

Placing a priority on her physical and mental well-being, LeAnn Rimes has decided to seek professional help at an undisclosed health facility.

The now 30-year-old country singer is said to be addressing anxiety and stress related issues, as her rep, Marcel Pariseau, told People magazine, "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."

Pariseau added that Miss Rimes will continue to perform in September, explaining, "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."

Meanwhile, LeAnn, herself, commented to People about her personal medical decision, revealing, "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."

Offering his full support to his "Can't Fight the Moonlight" crooner bride is actor Eddie Cibrian, who said, "My wife is the most remarkable and courageous woman I know. I am so proud of her for having the strength to finally take some time for herself. I will be with her every step of the way."
