Is LeAnn Rimes In Rehab For An Eating Disorder?
One of America’s
former sweethearts may be in a downward spiral relating to an eating disorder. LeAnn Rimes has always been fit with a great figure, however since snagging up the prize known as actor Eddie Cibrian she has become downright scrawny. This has her few remaining fans worried.
Star Magazine reports, “LeAnn Rimes claims she checked into a rehab center last month to deal with “anxiety and stress.” But those close to her tell Star that the Grammy winner’s eating disorder is becoming a medical emergency – and that’s the real reason she’s seeking help.
“LeAnn’s friends are convinced it could kill her,” a source says. “She’s abusing laxatives and constantly forcing herself to throw up after eating.”
Though Eddie has expressed his support for her decision to get treatment, he may deserve some of the blame for what’s happening: 30-year-old LeAnn’s weight obsession reportedly began when she got together with him.
The insider notes: “She says that Eddie loves skinny women and would never be with a woman who wasn’t tiny.”
A waitress at Hugo’s restaurant in Agoura Hills, CA who served LeAnn recently agrees that LeAnn has a problem: “She ordered nothing but steamed peas for dinner.” And yet, in the ladies’ room later, LeAnn purged even the veggies from her system.
“I heard her throw up,” says the waitress. “She came out and cried, explaining she had to do it – otherwise she couldn’t eat dessert with Eddie and still stay skinny.”
If this is the case, Rimes has got to realize this man doesn’t care about her. If he did, he wouldn’t make her feel conscious and stressed out about what she’s noshing on, especially with a body most of us would kill for. There are also rumors that Eddie’s reported cheating has been sending her over the edge.
