LeAnn Rimes' recent "X Factor" blunder has sparked concerns for her well being, and according to a new report friends close to the singer are urging her to seek professional help before its too late.

The troubled singer, who checked into a treatment facility in August to deal with stress, denied reports that she was drunk while performing on the "X factor" final show. However, a source claims that Rimes is struggling emotionally with different aspects of her life including her controversial marriage to Eddie Cibrian sparking fears of a breakdown, according to Life & Style magazine.

"Everyone around LeAnn can see how much she struggles. She has body issues and worries Eddie [Cibrian] will cheat," a source reportedly told Life & Style. "Friends and family are constantly worried she's going to fall apart again if she doesn't get help."

Rimes, 30, previously checked into the facility to deal with anxiety reportedly stemming from abuse she constantly receives on Twitter. The singer is still widely criticized over her 2009 affair with Cibrian, who was married to reality star Brandi Glanville at the time.

"LeAnn has voluntarily entered a 30 day in-patient treatment facility to cope with anxiety and stress," Rimes' rep, Marcel Pariseau, previously told People magazine in a statement.

The Twitter abuse, which supposedly comes from supporters of Glanville, allegedly became so unbearable that Rimes filed to sue several Twitter users and the cases are said to be pending.

Despite reports claiming that Rimes sought treatment to deal with stress stemming from the social networking site, one source insists that it is actually her widely condemned marriage to Cibrian, 41, that caused her emotional struggles.

"LeAnn is beyond stressed about the cracks in her relationship with Eddie and she has been really scared that he is cheating on her," a source told Radar Online.

"LeAnn called a friend of hers a few weeks ago sobbing hysterically about Eddie going out. She was home for the weekend and he didn't stay in with her and she was crying saying that she was so worried about what he was doing when he wasn't with her," the source went on.
