In August, just after turning 30, LeAnn Rimes checked herself into rehab due to stress and anxiety. The former host of Nashville Star spent a total of 30 days in rehab and now she’s ready to talk about it.
According to US Weekly, Rimes told Katie Couric, “People look at you and go, ‘Why are you struggling?’ No one can quite understand why you hurt so badly.”
A source close to Rimes gives us some insight into her pain. “LeAnn has had major insecurity issues since she first got with Eddie,” the source said. But why would Rimes have insecurity issues with her husband or her marriage? Well that’s an easy question to answer, Eddie cheated on his first wife, Brandi Glanville to be with LeAnn and now she’s afraid he’s going to do the same to her.
Since the affair between Rimes and Cibrian while he was still married to Glanville, Rimes has endured an onslaught of comments and verbal abuse via social media platforms. She explains, “I think it’s really hard to deal with Twitter and Facebook. And it’s hard to take day after day of reading and seeing things that someone you don’t even know says about you. As much as you said you don’t want it to penetrate, it does, because you’re human.”
Rimes reached out for treatment to help cope with social media comments and fears that husband, Eddie Cibrian would cheat on her. She said, “I’ve been in therapy my whole life. I like going,” she explained. “I like being able to have that third-party input and someone to listen that has nothing to do with your life. Everyone has an opinion of how I am and how I should be, and now I’m focusing on how I want to be.”
After spending 30 days in rehab, Rimes said, “I feel like I am starting over even though I’ve had all these years behind me. How many people get to [start] over again in this day and age?”
How do you feel about LeAnn’s situation? Do you feel sorry for her? Or do you think she’s getting what she deserves for cheating with a married man? Post a comment below and let us know what you think.
