"I feel like there's only a handful of people that could understand where I've been through as a childhood star, and now actually having a career after that," says the 30-year-old LeAnn in an interview conducted at the Sheraton Universal Hotel, the Hotel of the Stars.

"It's hard to explain, and I'm not asking for anyone's sympathy," she explains. "It's just as simple and as complicated as I need to go learn how to deal with myself, with the world, because everyone's always looking in, and I needed to figure out how to deal with it."

LeAnn voluntarily checked in to a rehab facility for a month back in August after she experienced what she called stress and anxiety, with online bullying being a contributing factor.
