Singer LeAnn Rimes reportedly suffers from both an eating disorder and addiction to diet pills according to reports on Dec. 5, 2012 from Radar Online and Us Weekly.
Reality TV star Brandi Glanville of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (RHOBH), Eddie Cibrian’s ex-wife, claims she has firsthand information on LeAnn’s addiction and why she feels her son, Mason is in danger under LeAnn’s care.
In a statement to Us Weekly, Glanville openly accuses LeAnn Rimes of putting her children in danger. She claims Rhimes left diet pills out in the open where Mason accidentally ingested them, thinking they were candy. Glanville explains:
“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.”
“She has one in every purse. Mason found on the floor and thought it was a Skittle! They don’t keep sugar in the house,”
“He thought he finally found candy.”
The attacks on Grimes did not stop there. Glanville added via Twitter in tweets to ex-husband Eddie Cibrian:
“My kids are my life.. However, ur wife is a [expletive] and addicted to laxatives that Mason got sick on,”
“Your ‘close friends’ talk sh*t about u and ur wife ALL the time… Leann is horrid she is addicted to laxatives and aderol [sic] has severe mental 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.”
LeAnn’s rep, Marcel Periseau responded via a statement to E! News when Brandi Glanville slammed Rhimes:
“Her whole show is based on controversy, drama and publicity,”
“She is the only one to gain by spewing forth inaccuracies, rants and half-truths. It’s time for people to see it for what this really is…What better way to keep herself relevant?”
Of course, all of this drama started when LeAnn Rimes reportedly ‘stole’ Eddie Cibrian away from the RHOBH when they met during the production of the movie “Northern Lights”. How much truth do you think there is to the rumors LeAnn is hiding a troubling eating disorder and pill addiction?
