LeAnn Rimes

Though she”s now on top of her game and loving life, LeAnn Rimes recently shared more about her struggles with her 2009 affair with Eddie Cibrian.

In an interview with Us Weekly, the country crooner admitted that the events took her on “an emotional roller coaster” leading to her treatment for anxiety and stress.

Noting the added pressure, she says that her “whole life has been out there for everyone to judge” and that “going away was something I really needed to do.”

Turning her attention to her new album, “Spitfire,” the 30-year-old songstress shares, “I think I opened up the can of worms for myself by writing this record. There were a lot of things I didn”t realize I was feeling…I needed to go somewhere and really process all of that stuff.”

When asked about those feelings, Ms. Rimes stated, “I was feeling all these crazy emotions and feeling terrible about myself and was disgusted by myself and thought I was pathetic.”

However, nowadays, things are looking up for LeAnn as she concludes,”Sometimes it takes walking through those tough times to come out the other side stronger and wiser. I”m gonna make mistakes as I move on in life, but that”s who we are, and I”m fortunate that I”ve grown a lot and I”m proud of who I am now…it”s a good place to be. I”m the strongest I”ve ever been.”
