Country star Leann Rimes has never been one to shy away from admitting her problems, but she insists that an eating disorder isn’t among them. The “How Do I Live” singer has come under a lot of scrutiny lately for her thinning physique. A lot of publications have speculated that Rimes is anorexic, but she maintains that she shed the pounds naturally, because of all the stress of her recent past.

"People said I was [anorexic], but I didn't have a problem with eating, as I ate a ton all the time - I could eat my husband under the table!" she tells the Daily Mail. "But I was going through a time when I just wasn't sleeping -- my mind wouldn't shut off and my heart was breaking." Rimes is referring to a time two years ago, when she was in an affair with now-husband Eddie Cibrian. The two met on the set of Northern Lights in 2009 and, at the time, both were still married – Rimes to dancer Dean Sheremet and Cibrian to future Real Housewife Brandi Glanville.

Rimes describes the period after their affair as a "turbulent" one. "To say I've been on several roller coasters is an understatement," she admits to the Daily Mail. According to her own words, she is in a much healthier place now though. So maybe this means that we’ll see the singer put on a few pounds soon.
