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.

If you're stress is being created by bs that's happening on twitter the answer is simple ... get off of twitter, sheesh. Sometimes people behave as if these electronic forms of communication are far more relevant than they are, unplug if it's all to heavy to deal with. Besides, you'd have to have a pretty limited "life" if you're raging at LeAnn over her and Eddie hooking up ... I mean, seriously who really gives a flying crap? That happened ages ago. Get better LeAnn ... go camping, take a nice long unplugged trip through the Amazon jungle or climb a mountain with your husband. Just get off the grid, you'll be fine.

Oh poor slutty home wrecker can't deal with the stress. Listen, lady, show people respect and not ruins marriage and lives and maybe people will show you some respect. Her 'rehab' won't help as last I checked, they don't teach you how have morals. Some thing she is lacking in

She can start her recovery in a very big way by closing her Twitter account. Nothing but anonymous people with nothing better to do than comment on the behavior of someone they only know from sites like TMZ. Which means they no nothing about the real person. The woman doesn't need "rehab", she needs a vacation.

Simple solution- delete your twitter account.

Not only should she close her twitter account, she needs to quit calling her twitter followers on the damn phone and being recorded arguing with them for 20 minutes.

It's called an 'off' button. Press it lightly and it'll go dark. It's either on the bottom of your screen or on the side.

Yup    

Oh for Christ sakes... how lame is this? She's in a battle with certain people who've signed up to receive tweets from her fvcking TWITTER account? Seriously? Just delete the account, or delete their individual account signups, if they're that being much of jerks. You don't have to have "coping classes" for that. Use some common sense, LeAnn...
