Everybody feels stress, but LeAnn Rimes has now entered treatment to deal with it, according to People magazine

As the country singer's rep told the magazine, "LeAnn has voluntarily entered a 30 day in-patient treatment facility to cope with anxiety and stress. While there will be speculation regarding her treatment, she is simply there to learn and develop coping mechanisms. While privacy isn't expected, it's certainly appreciated."

Rimes checked in on Wednesday, and she told the magazine she wants to emerge with skills she can use in her daily life. 

"This is just a time for me to emotionally check out for a second and take care of myself and come back in 30 days as the best 30-year-old woman I can be," she said.

Her husband, actor Eddie Cibrian, offered full support. "My wife is the most remarkable and courageous woman I know," he said. "I am so proud of her for having the strength to finally take some time for herself. I will be with her every step of the way."

Rimes intends to continue promoting her newest album, "Spitfire" and performing in a fall tour as she takes breaks from treatment. 

"The facility has granted her permission to keep her weekend tour obligations, as LeAnn doesn't want to disappoint her fans," said her rep. "She will report back after each weekend."
