LeAnn Rimes Childhood Mentor: “Hollywood Has Changed Her.”

Here’s a pic of LeAnn Rimes from 2002, back when she was looking less emaciated and much happier.  The theme of this post: what LeAnn USED to be…

As  you all know, LeAnn is spending her first days as a 30-year-old undergoing “stress and anxiety” treatment at an in-patient facility.  One of her early music mentors, Bill Mack,  is speaking out about how much LeAnn has changed since he worked with the young music talent. Mack affirms that that show business has impacted the singer for the worse, and that some of the issues she’s going through could be directly tied to her work-dominated childhood.

Mack worked with Rimes almost 20 years ago and wrote one of her earliest hits, Blue. He says the star is now getting attention for all the wrong reasons: breaking up marriages, having an eating disorder and now going to get treatment.

“Her appearance alone is cause for concern, as she looks much older than 30 years old… she doesn’t look healthy anymore” he told the MailOnline. “I think Hollywood has changed LeAnn for the worse and I don’t know exactly what is causing all her unhappiness, but [treatment] is something we all saw coming and I think it’s a good idea.”

Mack says that many of LeAnn’s current issues date back to 1997: the year her parents split up and the year she essentially became famous.

“She made good money, but she didn’t have the love and support she needed and she had a lot of anger bottled up inside,” he said, “which is now starting to affect her both physically and mentally.”

The country mentor also said that LeAnn was robbed of her childhood, and the issues she encountered as a kid have been bottled up for quite some time.

“She was overworked and overbooked with such a high degree of personal stress that she never had the opportunity to just be a kid,” he said. “Now that she has time to sit down and sort through her emotional problems, it’s finally all catching up to her 15 years later.”

Sometimes it’s easy to lose sight of celebrity problems because celebrities often seem ridiculous or self-involved…but Mack is right. These are real-and serious- issues that LeAnn needs to confront.

LeAnn Rimes filed a lawsuit against her Twitter haters before entering treatment!

LeAnn Rimes is tucked away in a treatment center where she’s getting help with her coping mechanisms. She is NOT in a treatment center getting help for anything else, like drugs and alcohol as some people have reported. She was simply stressed beyond measure – and needed a little help. Now we’re starting to get a clearer picture what happened before she entered treatment, and what sent her over the edge!

LeAnn Rimes just filed a lawsuit against two women she claims illegally taped a conversation with her and then spread it across the Internet.

TMZ has obtained a copy of the suit … filed in L.A. County Superior Court. Rimes alleges Kimberly Smiley and Lexi Smiley are supporters of Brandi GlanvilleEddie Cibrian’s ex — and engaged in a campaign to trash her when she hooked up the with Eddie.

This Spring, LeAnn claims she called Kimberly in an attempt to stop the negative Internet activity. During the conversation, LeAnn says she attempted to be kind and said she wanted peace.

LeAnn alleges Kimberly and Lexi illegally and secretly recorded the conversation and then released out-of-context excerpts, painting her in a “false and negative light.” They also allegedly made statements that LeAnn was “crazy and delusional.”

LeAnn is suing for invasion of privacy.

Rimes’ lawyer, Larry Stein, tells TMZ LeAnn will also go to police in an effort to get the people responsible for the recording prosecuted.

As we previously reported, Rimes is currently in a treatment facility for stress management.

I agree that it’s not very cool that Eddie and LeAnn had an affair that caused both of their marriages to fall apart. But enough is enough! Time to move on people! Leave the poor woman alone now. According to US Weekly, Leann “has a lot of mental anguish over how she is perceived… [She has] this constant feeling of being punished for something. She feels like society has never forgiven her. She has this overwhelming need to be loved and respected.” As her music career failed, “she became focused on being a celebrity. She’s incredibly hard on herself, but she doesn’t realize the decisions she has made.”

TMZ’s reports that LeAnn is getting help with “a severe inability to cope with anxiety and stress.” Also that LeAnn has been in “meltdown mode” over “a war she’s been having with a group of people who are upset about her relationship with Eddie Cibrian. The group has gone after her in a big way on Twitter, and LeAnn — rather than ignoring them — has fought back. We’re told the stress has been unbearable for her and she wanted help.”

LeAnn Rimes enters rehab!

LeAnn Rimes has checked herself into a treatment center to help her cope with stress, according to TMZ.

The singer, who CONSTANTLY is being photographed with a smile on her face and screaming how happy she is, apparently needs a little help.

A rep for Rimes … who has spent the past year habitually tweeting out bikini photos of herself … just released a statement to saying, “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.”

Rimes also issued a statement herself … saying, “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.”

“All the things in my life will be there when I get out, but you know what? I’m hoping they’re not going to affect me as much … I’ll have the tools to know how to deal with them.”

Rimes’ husband Eddie Cibrian says he fully supports his wife’s decision and called her “the most remarkable and courageous woman I know.”

“I am so proud of her for having the strength to finally take some time for herself,” he added. “I will be with her every step of the way.”

There is some speculation online that LeAnn was entering rehab for an eating disorder, which if were true wouldn’t surprise me a bit. Check out the picture below – she’s never looked skinnier!

Here are some new pictures from her twitter. The singer turned 30-years-old on Tuesday, and celebrated with her family.

LeAnn Rimes Turns 30, Celebrates With Weird Theme Party

LeAnn Rimes is my favorite bizarro celeb…And this week, I’m elated that the actress is turning 30 with a “Die, 20′s, Die” themed party!

LeAnn celebrated her birthday in Laguna Beach, California with 20 of her closest friends in a party that included lots of angelic and deathly themed imagery. The opening bar had tequila, bird cages and angel wings,  and “sin” confessionals; purple orchids and white blooms (along with rhinestone skulls) serve as the décor centerpieces throughout the party. Of course, the birthday festivities culminated in a cake featuring LeAnn in a bikini, on top of a coffin.

“We laugh so hard all the time because people have this obsession with me in a bikini,” she tells PEOPLE. “I’ve always said, ‘I’m on the beach, what am I supposed to wear?’”

Still, enough with the creepy cakes already, you and hubby Eddie Cibrian are WEIRD.  Rimes goes on to say:

“I think there’s something that happens to women when you turn 30, that you enter into being a true woman.”
