LeAnn Rimes admitted to treatment facility for anxiety

Once a cheater, always a cheater?

The day after her 30th birthday on Aug. 28, LeAnn Rimes admitted herself into a 30-day inpatient treatment facility for anxiety. "She is simply there to learn and develop coping mechanisms," her rep said in a Aug. 30 statement.

At the root of Rimes' distress is an all-consuming obsession with husband Eddie Cibrian's wandering eye -- further  fueled by cyberbullying she has suffered ever since the 2009 extramarital affair that began their romance.

"LeAnn has had major insecurity issues since she first got together with Eddie," explains a friend of the couple to Us Weekly. "She's been stressed about always being called a home-wrecker and also worried that Eddie is cheating on her. She's been on a downward spiral."
