LeAnn Rimes Sues Cyber Bullies

LeAnn RimesLeAnn Rimes has filed a lawsuit against two women who she says recorded a conversation with her illegally and then released the recording online. The suit, which was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, alleges that Kimberly Smiley and Lexi Smiley are fans of Brandi Glanville, who is Eddie Cibrian’s ex. These two women took it upon themselves to trash Rimes after she hooked up with Eddie. Earlier this spring, Rimes attempted to call Kimberly to try and end all the negative Internet activity. In the conversation, Rimes said she was trying to be kind and all she wanted was some peace.

Rimes has said that Kimberly and Lexi recorded the conversation without Rimes knowledge and then released excerpts of the conversation that were taken completely out of context. She claims these exerpts paint her in a “False and negative light.” The two girls had also previously made statements that Rimes was “crazy and delusional.”

Now Rimes is suing for invasion of privacy and her lawyer, Larry Stein said that she will also take the matter to the police department in order to get the people who are responsible for the recording prosecuted.

Rimes believes she is the victim of cyber bullies. The two girls, Kimberly and Lexi have also been terrorizing the country singer on Twitter. It is illegal in the state of California to record a phone call without the consent of both parties. Rimes will be taking all the steps she needs to in order to take care of the pain that she has been subjected to thanks to this criminal conduct.

The singer has been struggling to cope with the anxiety and stress of the whole ordeal and now feels that is all unbearable for her. As it turns out, this entire situation is what has led Rimes to voluntarily enter a 30 day rehab facility. She is hoping she will be able to learn some skills that will help her to handle the whole dramatic situation a bit better.LeAnn Rimes

This type of rehab is not your normal treatment facility however. Rimes is free to come and go on the weekends, something that does not usually happen in rehab. She is also allowed to keep her phone and use it freely when she wants. This is also something that is not normal in rehab. LeAnn will be heading home this weekend, and sources close to the star say that she is already feeling stronger and doing better than she had been previously. Good for her for taking care of herself. It will be interesting to see if she will be able to get back at her Cyber Bullies. Hopefully she will.
