LeAnn Rimes — She’s NOT In Rehab

exclusive 0830_leann_rimes_akmgsi1LeAnn Rimes is NOT in a rehab facility … our sources has learned, although she”s dealing with a severe inability to cope.

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.
