Rimes checks-in to rehab

LeAnn Rimes has checked into rehab.

The 'Can't Fight the Moonlight' singer entered into a 30-day in-patient facility to deal with "anxiety and stress" on Wednesday, the day after her 30th birthday, and she hopes is better able to deal with her problems on her return.

She said: "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."

"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. I'll have the tools to know how to deal with them."

Her representative Marcel Pariseau added privacy was not "expected" but would be "appreciated".

He told People.com: "LeAnn has voluntarily entered a 30 day in-patient treatment facility to cope with anxiety and stress.

"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 appreciated."

However, she will be allowed to exit the facility to keep to her tour commitments on weekends.

Marcel added: "The facility has granted her permission to keep her weekend tour obligations as LeAnn doesn't want to disappoint her fans. She will report back after each weekend."
