Her years of fame come with life-long struggles. LeAnn Rimes revealed her battle with depression and anxiety in a candid interview.


Rimes said that she did not initially want to face her pain, as reported by People. Now, she found her peace after letting go of her shame of having a struggle.

"People are so ashamed to talk about it and ask for help. But taking away the shame is so important," she said.

The American singer disclosed that while growing up under the limelight, she felt so empty and sad. Rimes felt pressured to be this famous 'entity', not the real her, as reported by People.

Her struggles intensified when her parents got divorced and faced a lawsuit with her father. She had a painful divorce from her ex-husband Dean Sheremet in 2010, amid her public affair with Eddie Cibrian.

Rimes became the center of public shaming, causing troubled sleeping and panic attacks. "I had so much underlying grief," Rimes said.

Rimes admitted her mistakes in that past and took full responsibility for what happened in the past. She added that she may have hurt other people, but she did not regret the outcome, as reported by Country Living.

After her troubled experiences, Rimes is now happily married to Cibrian. She and Cibrian were co-stars in the show, "Northern Lights" in 2009.

While she shares romantic occasions with her Cibrian, Rimes said she thought of having a baby with him.



The couple got married in April 2011 at a private home in Los Angeles with 40 guests. They now regularly share sweet social media posts about their wedding anniversaries and other romantic occasions.

While she shares romantic occasions with her Cibrian, Rimes said she thought of having a baby with him. She is currently the stepmother of his two sons, Mason and Jake, as reported by ET Online.


Mason and Jake are children of Cibrian's ex-wife Brandi Glanville. Glanville is one of the reality stars in the "Real Desperate Housewives of Beverly Hills."

Rimes added that she gets the 'baby fever' but she is still trying to figure out the situation. For now, she is currently happy and contented to be around with her stepchildren.

Like Rimes, Miranda Lambert shared her battle with depression and anxiety. Her mental health was affected following the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.
