LeAnn Rimes' Depression Put a 'Weight' on Marriage to Eddie Cibrian: 'We're Stronger Than Ever'

LeAnn Rimes is opening up about the toll that her anxiety and depression once took on her relationship with husband Eddie Cibrian.

“At one point, there was such a weight on my marriage,” says Rimes, 37, who has battled depression since she was a young teen and underwent a 30-day stay in a mental health facility in 2012. “Eddie and my friends and those close to me experienced pain through my eyes. They weren’t exempt from it.”

Her impetus to get professional help came from Rimes’ realization that she was relying on her husband and family to make her healthy.

“When we’re in our own world and in our depression and anxiety, it can be very isolating, and a very self-absorbed situation,” says Rimes, who has been married to Cibrian, 46, since 2011. “I had a lot of co-dependency. My first night in treatment was the first night I’d ever been alone. There was a lot of healing to do.”
