LeAnn Rimes On Rehab Stay: "It's Hard Dealing With Twitter And Facebook"
LeAnn Rimes is out of rehab and feeling better than ever.
But now the 30-year-old country singer has opened up about her recent completion of treatment for stress and anxiety after she had a meltdown and claimed to be bullied by some of her Twitter followers.
She has never fully bounced back from the backlash following her affair with now-husband Eddie Cibrian while he was married to Brandi Glanville and which caused the end of her own marriage.
But she tells the Boston Herald that she was ready to take hold of her life again as she embarks life in her 30s.
"I've been in therapy my whole life," she told the publication. "I like going. I like being able to have that third-party input and someone to listen that has nothing to do with your life. Everyone has an opinion of how I am and how I should be, and now I'm focusing on how I want to be."
LeAnn says that she finds it difficult to not let her interaction on social networking sites affect her.
"I think it's really hard to deal with Twitter and Facebook and all these social media outlets," she said. "And it's hard to take it day after day of reading and seeing things that someone you don't even know says about you. As much as you said you don't want it to penetrate, it does, because you're human."
LeAnn has been in the limelight for nearly two decades after launching to fame at the age of 13 but she admits she's happy to see the back of her 20s.
"I had some wonderful times in my 20s, but your 20s are hard," LeAnn explained. "It was a lot of learning experiences ... and a lot were thrown at me publicly. I was ready to embrace 30."
"I have felt like I've had a piece of tape over my mouth the last four years," said the star. "I wanted to start the next 30 years of my life on a great foot."
