X Factor guest star, LeAnn Rimes is in the spotlight once again, and this time it’s to address claims that she suffers from anorexia. Rimes said she is not anorexic and blames her weight loss on stress. Keep reading for more details.
According to US Weekly, Rimes recently sat down with Daily Mail to discuss her sudden weight loss of two years ago. And while she was quick to admit there were problems in her life at that time, she said anorexia wasn’t one of them assuring the U.K. publication that she eats “a ton all the time.”
So why the sudden weight loss? Rimes attributes the weight loss to stress. “I was going through a time when I just wasn’t sleeping – my mind wouldn’t shut off and my heart was breaking,” she said referring to her affair with Eddie Cibrian.
At the time Rimes was married to Dean Sheremet and Cibrian was married to Brandi Glanville. But after meeting on the set of Northern Lights in 2009, Rimes and Cibrian fell in love, divorced their spouses, and eventually got married. And through it all, she said life was turbulent comparing it to multiple roller coaster rides.
Last August, Rimes checked into rehab and went through a 30-day treatment program for anxiety and stress, which helped her learn to deal with the issues in her life. Another way she learned to cope was to express herself through music. One song, “Borrowed,” on her new album, ‘Spitfire’ describes the pain she felt over being in love with a married man. And though it wasn’t easy to write about such personal issues, she said the honesty was liberating.
Now, for the most part, life is good. She has the support of a loving husband and feels good about her body. “Now, I’m secure about my body,” she said, “although I’m like any other woman and have moments of self-doubt.”
What do you think of Rimes’ sudden weight loss? Was it all stress related? Sound off in the comments and let us know.
