Cibrian, Rimes’ current husband, was married to F-list model Brandi Glanville (who later joined the cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills) when they began their relationship, and Rimes has unraveled at the public’s constant “homewrecker” nagging since 2009.
If the weight loss wasn’t a big enough sign, LeAnn is now in a non-traditional rehab-like facility to help her cope with adversity.
TMZ is reporting that she is allowed to leave on weekends, and use the phone.
“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,” Rimes said in a statement released on Thursday.
Her lawyer, Larry Stein, says his client is misunderstood, and a victim of severe cyber bullying.
“Apparently, most of this started when LeAnn started dating Eddie Cibrian … These women [on Twitter] have been merciless — vitriolic in their attacks. Like most celebrities, Rimes didn’t like it, but she hoped things would get better. They don’t understand who she is or who she stands for.”
