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.

Fat (when she was younger) or skinny she just isn't attractive. Since she lost weight all she can do is tweet pictures of herself in her bikini - that screams I am self absorbed. So let's see 1) see looses weight 2) she cheats on her husband 3) steal another woman's husband 4) she tweets pics left and right of that horrible body. You can take the girl out of the trailer park but you can't take the trailer park out of the girl - seriously b4 she "made it" she lived in a trailer park. Now she makes millions and is unhappy. Get a real job and get over yourself. Some of us are old enough to remember where you came from....obviously she is headed back home. She deserves a break down - maybe she will gain weight, apologize to Brandi and repent to her fans for what she has done. Suing is the sissy way out!!

Does the girl own anything besides bikinis? Why is she so desperate for attention? My advice to LR is to get off the Internet and stop looking for trouble. Work on your issues and stop looking for trouble obsessing over people on twitter. Grow up!

She has deep rooted issues. She isn't famous (or likeable) anymore. She keeps herself in gossip news with desperate attempts for attention with bathing suit photos and whoa is me "someone recorded our conversation". Get over yourself.

Has anyone heard a similar story?
