LeAnn Rimes Quits Twitter Over PDA Photos

By: / July 8, 2010

It looks like Prince isn’t the only star who isn’t loving the internet right now: Country star LeAnn Rimes has quit Twitter in a huff after she fought back against critics.

Earlier this week, the country blonde was criticized when photos of her leaning over to kiss her boyfriend, Eddie Cibrian, surfaced online. Sounds pretty tame, right? Well, if you remember Eddie and LeAnn began dating in 2008 when the two of them were still married. A scandal-breaking Us Weekly cover and two divorces later, Eddie and LeAnn went public and have been dating each other ever since.

LeAnn responded to the criticism by Tweeting, “Since when is kissing your boyfriend a crime?!” Apparently, this stirred up the offended masses even more and they began attacking her on Twitter, which forced her to close her account:

Taking a break from twitter for a while [...] It’s unhealthy for me and my family to have to read negative comments from people who’s [sic] opinions have no bearing on my life.

Well, there is always the “block” feature, LeAnn.
