Singer LeAnn Rimes has entered a health facility. She is seeking treatment for anxiety and stress.
Rimes checked into the center on Wednesday, August 29, the day after she turned 30.
"LeAnn has voluntarily entered a 30-day in-patient treatment facility to cope with anxiety and stress," her rep told PEOPLE. "While there will be speculation regarding her treatment, she is simply there to learn and develop coping mechanisms. While privacy isn't expected, it's certainly appreciated."
She will be permitted to continue performing. Her rep stated, "The facility has granted her permission to keep her weekend tour obligations, as LeAnn doesn’t want to disappoint her fans. She will report back after each weekend."
Rimes posted an update on her website, writing: "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."
Her husband Eddie Cibrian commented, "My wife is 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. I will be with her every step of the way."
Get better soon, LeAnn.
