LeAnn Rimes Leaves Treatment for Weekend to Perform in Wisconsin (EXCLUSIVE DETAILS)
Just over a week after entering treatment for emotional issues, LeAnn Rimes has emerged — but just for the weekend.
The country star is taking a break from her 30-day program — for what her rep called “anxiety” and difficulty with “coping mechanisms" — to see family, friends and, of course, fans.
"I'm on a plane headed to see all my fans in Wisconsin tonight!" Rimes wrote on her website.
"I can't wait to play, I'm so ready."
And Rimes will hit the stage more than once over the week.
"EXTREMELY excited to perform for the next 3 nights," she tweeted. "My sweetness drove me to the airport this morning & I'm on my way! See you there."
And Rimes made sure she was prepped for her high-flying trip.
"I've got a zillion fashion mags, my journal, ipod, water and a butterfinger...I'm all set :)," she shared on her site. "Seems I've developed a sweet tooth after turning 30. If that's all that comes with 30, I think I'm settinling in pretty well. So far, the new decade is treating me great!"
The country musician — who is married to actor Eddie Cibrian — checked into a treatment center on Aug. 29, just a day after celebrating her 30th birthday, after fallen victim to cyberbullying.
Later that day, Rimes' attorney Larry Stein filed suit in a California court alleging that Kimberly and Lexi Smiley harassed the singer on Twitter — and that the two women illegally recorded a phone conversation and distributed it on the internet.
And though she's hitting the road today, source tells Celebuzz Rimes will return to in-patient treatment after the weekend. But in the meantime, "I look forward to seeing all of my fans and friends over the next 3 days," she wrote on her website.
Rimes — who will release her next album, Spitfire, in December — is set to go on a 23-date American tour from October to December.
