LeAnn Rimes in Treatment for 'Anxiety and Stress'

Gregg DeGuire/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- LeAnn Rimes has voluntarily entered treatment to deal with emotional issues, her rep tells People magazine.

In a statement, her spokesman says, "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."  

He adds, "While privacy isn't expected, it's certainly appreciated."

Rimes, who turned 30 on Tuesday, checked into the facility on Wednesday.  She tells People magazine that she wants to learn how to better deal with her life.

"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," she says, adding, "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, tells People that his wife is "the most remarkable and courageous woman I know," and says he's "so proud" of her for being strong enough to "take some time for herself."

The spokesman confirms to People that Rimes' problems do not include substance abuse or an eating disorder.

During weekend breaks from treatment, her rep tells People that Rimes will keep her September weekend tour obligations.  She's set to release a new album, Spitfire, in the coming months.

Whitney Houston Checks Into Rehab

ABC News(LOS ANGELES) -- Whitney Houston is in rehab, a rep for the star confirmed to ABC News Radio on Monday.

A spokesperson for Houston says she is in an outpatient program for drug and alcohol treatment, and that she entered the program voluntarily, as part of what the rep called Houston's "long-standing" recovery process.

Houston has admitted to substance abuse in the past.  Last year, after she received some poor reviews for a number of live performances there were rumors that she was once again battling addiction, but those reports were never confirmed.

Thursday night, Houston and Chaka Khan were special guests at Prince's concert at the L.A. Forum -- they sang Chaka's hit with Rufus, "Tell Me Something Good."
