LeAnn Rimes Checks Into Rehab

LeAnn Rimes has checked into rehab because she can’t handle turning 30.

I’m joking, but I’m also kind of serious.

“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,” says the singer.

See, I told you it was about turning 30! Hey, at least it’s not for a red bull addiction.

A rep for the singer confirms to Hollyscoop that Rimes is going to rehab for emotional issues, specifically “anxiety and stress.”

“LeAnn has voluntarily entered a 30 day in-patient treatment facility to cope with anxiety and stress,” her rep Marcel Pariseau revealed, “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 appreciate.”

What is so stressful about her life? I thought her daily activities consisted exclusively of tweeting and wearing bikinis?

LeAnn insists her life is just wracked with anxiety.

“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,” she adds, “I’ll have the tools to know how to deal with them.”

This is such a classic case of going to rehab to reinvigorate a dead career. It kind of worked for Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan. A for effort, LeAnn?

Anyways, LeAnn’s rep says she’ll get to leave on weekends to go on tour and then will return to rehab on Monday.
