LeAnn Rimes

NOT In Rehab

8/30/2012 1:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0830_leann_rimes_akmgsi1LeAnn Rimes is NOT in a rehab facility ... TMZ has learned, although she's dealing with a severe inability to cope with anxiety and stress.

We had our doubts when we were initially told LeAnn is not in a traditional rehab facility --  we were hearing she was being treated for drug and eating disorder problems.  But after making a bunch of calls, we're confident -- LeAnn's decision to get help is limited to coping issues.  That doesn't mean she doesn't have other issues, including weight, but that's not what this is about.

Our sources say ... LeAnn has been in meltdown mode recently over a war she's been having with a group of people who are upset about her relationship with Eddie Cibrian.  The group has gone after her in a big way on Twitter, and LeAnn -- rather than ignoring them -- has fought back.  We're told the stress has been unbearable for her and she wanted help.   

As for the kind of help ... our sources say LeAnn is in a facility that teaches people to handle adversity and stress.  She is free to leave on weekends -- something that doesn't happen in rehab.  She's also allowed to use her phone at any time -- again, that just doesn't happen in rehab.

LeAnn will be going home this weekend ... sources say and she's telling people she already feels stronger.

Like we said ... we initially thought LeAnn's party line was B.S. .. but now we know it to be true.

Don't buy it. I know someone who was in rehab/recovery and they were able to go during the day and go home at night. As far as unable to deal with stress, why do you need to go to camp to learn how to deal with stress? I think it's for her eating disorder.

Exactly what sort of coping issues does this woman have? Confusion over which bikini to wear next for her endless damn paparazzi shots? For heaven's sake, harden the f up. If she is being freaked out by Twitter trolls, then she should delete her freakin' Twitter account. Takes no more than a coupe of keystrokes and the problem is solved.

To skinny !! Twitter ? Seriously? Close your account and walk away. Keeping it just shows how needy she is for attention.

She needs FOOD.

She won't check in any facility because she can't leave Ed alone.
She is a psycho sicko IMO.

You do not need rehab for coping issues..

she clearly has a eating disorder, ocd, and hyper sexual dysfunction...

Wow-rehab to teach common sense. Here's some advice (it'll save you $$ and 30 days of your life): Get off the electronic grid and don't read the tabloids or TMZ.

She's probably stressing over how to keep Eddie from cheating on her! Karma's a bitch!

Dear LeAnn,

Please hang in there and take care of YOU. You have a husband, family, friends and lots of fans who LOVE you and care about you. These idiots aren't worth anymore tears and heartache.

I totally understand how sometimes it can be so difficult and hard to ignore hateful things that are being said about you- unfortunately, we all have to deal with it sometimes. It has taken me years to be able to let things go. Don't allow them to 'rent anymore space in your head' and allow them to hurt you- THEY AREN'T WORTH IT!

Just focus on who and what matters in life.
You are loved and you have your husband and family! God bless you!!! You are going to thrive and be just fine. Sending you a huge cyber HUG!
