LeAnn Rimes: “I've been in therapy my whole life”LeAnn Rimes, who has recently checked out of a treatment facility where she has spent a few weeks in order to deal with some emotional problems, tells the Boston Herald in an interview: “I’ve been in therapy my whole life.” Moreover, the singer says that she likes it.

For LeAnn Rimes the psychiatrist’s couch is probably one of the most familiar things. In a recent interview to the Boston Herald, the country singer confesses that psychotherapy has been a big part of her life throughout the years. “I’ve been in therapy my whole life”, she admits. And, contrary to what you may think, she doesn’t see it as a burden. “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”, she explains.

Back in August, Rimes checked into a treatment facility to deal with emotional problems, among which anxiety. Part of the problem was due to the negative feedback she had received via Facebook and Twitter. “It’s hard to take it day after day of reading and seeing things that someone you don’t even know says about you”.

When turning 30, four weeks ago, the “Can’t Fight the Moonlight” singer was ready to kiss her 20s goodbye with no regrets. As she put it, that decade was full of bad experiences, from which she had to learn. “A lot were thrown at me publicly. I was ready to embrace 30.”

Rimes, who has been on stage since the age of 13, had been the target of numerous tabloids and social media websites since it was revealed that she has been the other woman for actor Eddie Cibrian, at the time married to “Real Housewife” Brandi Glanville. And lately, she faced criticism regarding her skinny silhouette.

Her upcoming album, “Spitfire”, which will be released next year in spring, is a chance for the music artist to pour her feelings into songs. In fact, her first single, “What have I done?”, is her own version of the mistakes she has been judged for in the past. “I have felt like I’ve had a piece of tape over my mouth the last four years”, Rimes said, adding: “I wanted to start the next 30 years of my life on a great foot.”
