‘Angelfish’: Sings like angel, drinks like...Comment on this story
LeAnn Rimes has been accused of having a “severe eating disorder”.
The 30-year-old 'How Do I Live' singer – who went to rehab for 30 days last summer because she wanted to learn how to properly cope with her anxiety and stress – allegedly isn't fit to be around her step-sons, according to their mother Brandy Glanville, who claims her son Mason, nine, was “extremely ill” after accidently ingesting one of LeAnn's laxatives.
The 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills', 40, star – who was previously married to LeAnn's husband Eddie Cibrian with whom she shares sons, Mason, nine and Jake, five, - told USMagazine.com: “I, unfortunately, don't find her to be stable and I don't want her around my kids when Eddie's not there - or at least the nanny, his parents, someone.
“Mason, my eldest, ate some of Le's candies and got extremely ill. And Le's candies are laxatives. It was a big f**king deal for me, and I lost my mind.
“LeAnn has a severe eating disorder. She has one (a laxative) in every purse. Mason found it on the floor and thought it was a Skittle! They don't keep sugar in the house. He thought he finally found candy.
“He gets extremely sick, and that freaks me the f**k out. Mason told me about it, and then Eddie's assistant, who was working for me at the time, also told me about it out of concern for my children. I emailed, emailed, called, called - no answers. Couldn't even discuss it. He refuses to even be in the same room as me. He can't have a parent-teacher conference if I'm there. I don't know how to do this when I can't talk to the father of my children and his new wife. I don't know what to do.”
LeAnn's spokesperson denied the allegations and said: “Just more inaccuracies and half-truths.”
Her husband Eddie, 39, also issued a statement in support of the singer and called Brady's accusations “ridiculous”.
He said: “My wife, LeAnn, continues to be a loving and positive influence on the lives of my sons. They are without a doubt lucky to have her.”
Cibrian’s show of support however further infuriated Glanville, who then claimed that Rimes “drinks like a fish”.
In a furious Twitter rant, Glanville claimed that that “horrid” Rimes has earned the nickname “angelfish” because of her angelic voice and alleged alcohol dependency.
She posted: “My kids are my life.. However, ur wife is **** and addicted to laxatives that Mason got sick on. Your 'close friends' talk sh*t about u and ur wife ALL the time... (sic)
“Leann is horrid she is addicted to laxatives and aderol (sic) has severe metal issues and [redacted] who was all to ready to spill on both of you and to me lovingly refers to Leann as angelfish because she sings like an angel and drinks like a fish. (sic)”
She then went on to accuse the 30-year-old 'How Do I Live' singer of being on a downward spiral and putting her sons “in danger” because of her supposed alcohol binges and pill addiction.
Brandi raged: “I'm a great mom and [redacted] saw nothing other than that. You want to talk narcissism??? U two are both the best examples of that. Why don't u man up and find ur balls and get ur country **** off Twitter she is a wreck and spiraling down fast!!! (sic)
“The kids love her but they don't realize she is putting them in danger!!!!!! MAN THE F**K UP eddie put the tequila down and be a proper parent (sic)”
The outburst came after Eddie - who dumped Brandi after beginning an affair with LeAnn in 2009 - insisted his new wife is a great stepmother in an open email sent to RadarOnline.
Brandi later removed her emotional rant and posted: “Let's not talk of them anymore I was wrong 2 put it up.”
