Typically all smiles for the paparazzi, singer/actress LeAnn Rimes revealed she is dealing with stressful emotional issues that convinced her to seek treatment in a rehab facility.

“LeAnn has voluntarily entered a 30 day in-patient treatment facility to cope with anxiety and stress,” her rep Marcel Pariseau told PEOPLE exclusively, reports CBS LA.

Having just celebrated her 30th birthday on Aug. 28, LeAnn is seeking help to “learn and develop coping mechanisms,” her rep added.

LeAnn has been under public scrutiny over the past year for her weight and rail-thin appearance, but her rep insists she’s not being treated for an eating disorder.

The singer also released a statement to People about her decision to head to rehab, 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.”
