exclusive LeAnn 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.
