COUNTRY star and actor LeAnn Rimes recently uploaded a photo to Instagram with her skin condition, psoriasis, on full display.
LeAnn said she was being “unabashedly honest” and embracing her condition which she has struggled with for years.
Who is LeAnn Rimes?
LeAnn Rimes is an singer, songwriter, actor and author.
The country star shot to fame at 13-years-old after she covered Bill Mack’s “Blue,” becoming the youngest star in the genre since Tanya Tucker’s debut in 1972.
The 38-year-old has released 18 studio albums since 1991.
With several movies and television appearances under her belt, she’s most notable for her stint in Coyote Ugly.
What is psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune condition that causes the rapid buildup of skin cells, according to Healthline.
It appears on the skin in red, scaly patches. Sometimes, these patches will crack and bleed.
According to one study, around 7.4 million Americans have psoriasis.
What is the naked photo of her embracing her psoriasis?
The county singer has recently revealed her ongoing battle with psoriasis.
Posing on her knees in field, the pictures show LeAnn’s psiorosis covers her back and the backs of her legs.
“So much of my journey, both personally and within my creations, my new chant record and podcast coming out soon, has been excavating pieces that I’ve been hiding and bringing them to the ligh,” she shared.
“It’s been and still is a journey of allowing them out and welcoming and reintegrating those fragments back into wholeness.
“Music has been my gift, and why I’m here. But I want to give a voice to these other pieces of me. And I want to give a voice to what so many other people are going through. This is finally my time to be unabashedly honest about what psoriasis is and what it looks like.”
She continued: “You know when you say something you’ve been holding in for so long, and it’s such a sigh of relief?
“That’s what these photos are to me. I needed this.
“My whole body—my mind, my spirit—needed this desperately.
“With today being World Psoriasis Day, I thought this would be the perfect time to share my story with @glamourmag, head to the link in my bio/ stories to read my full essay.”
She concluded that she finally sees what her husband saw when he told her he never saw her psoriasis.
Who is she married to?
The Can’t Fight The Moonlight singer is married to actor Eddie Cibrian.
Although the couple has been wed for nine years, their relationship started in a scandal.
LeAnn was married to backup dancer Dean Sheremet and Eddie to Real Housewives star Brandi Glanville when they first met on the set of Lifetime movie Northern Lights in 2009.
The two ended up in an affair shortly after.
In her book Drinking & Tweeting and other Brandi Blunders, reality TV star Brandi revealed how she figured out her husband was having an affair after the couples went out to dinner one evening.
“This woman, whom I had just met, spent more time flirting with my husband than acknowledging her own,” she wrote.
“And Dean, bless his heart, ate his sushi, laughed at all the right moments, and pretended that he didn’t see exactly what was in front of him.”
The group later went to a karaoke bar where LeAnn chose to sing a song with Eddie over her own husband.
She continued: “I looked at Eddie’s smiling face on that stupid, low-rent stage and leaned over to Dean and said, ‘You know they’re f**king, right?'”
Brandi says Dean didn’t respond – which “said just about everything I needed to know, he knew it too, but like me, didn’t have any evidence besides that gut feeling, and he chose to ignore it for now.”
Pictures later emerged of LeAnn and Eddie kissing when they went out for dinner.
Announcing their split in 2009, Brandi said: “Eddie and I have decided to take some time apart.
“I want to do what is best for our children [Mason and Jake]. Eddie and LeAnn deserve each other.”
LeAnn later said she had no regrets about what happened between them all, although the events caused years of feuding between the pair.
Brandi said LeAnn recently “took a pass” on appearing on her podcast after the two finally settled their differences.
