Listen to LeAnn Rimes on iHeartRadio

(Yahoo!) - LeAnn Rimes sought treatment in rehab for emotional issues last August and, in a new interview, the singer reveals just how bad her state of mind was at the time.

During a sit-down with “Entertainment Tonight” which aired Wednesday, the 30-year-old opened up about her treatment for stress, anxiety, and depression, stemming from the ongoing criticism she has received for her extramarital affair with her now-husband Eddie Cibrian. Rimes candidly admitted that at the peak of her emotional problems, she battled suicidal thoughts.

“Of course, I think anybody could,” said Rimes when asked if she considered ending her life. “I think any smart person would know that it is always a possibility that you could always get that sad and deep.” However, “I worried that was a possibility, [but] I know I would never.”

Because Rimes and Cibrian, 39, started seeing one another when they were both married (to Dean Sheremet and “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Brandi Glanville, respectively), the “Borrowed” singer admits that she worries her husband will one day cheat on her as well.

“I would be ignorant to say – and everyone else would think I am a liar – if I didn’t say yes, and I have at times,” she said.
