LeAnn Rimes Victim of ‘Merciless, Vitriolic’ Cyber-Bullies, Says Lawyer (EXCLUSIVE)

LeAnn Rimes Chats With Brandi Glanville at Her & Eddie Cibrian's Son's Soccer Game
Faceoff: LeAnn vs. Brandi

Before LeAnn Rimes packed her bags for a 30-day inpatient facility to combat anxiety and stress -- she was (and apparently still is) embroiled in a behind-the-scenes back and forth that appears to be draining her emotionally.

Celebrities -- with their entourages of handlers and long-held command of the mass media -- are not used to being bullied by the average public.

But with one lawsuit that is being floated -- that Celebuzz has obtained the details of -- LeAnn Rimes is turning the tables on one group of detractors on Twitter.

Rimes has accumulated a glut of offensive Tweets published about her, circulated among a circle of private individuals -- and is preparing papers with her legal team in efforts to obtain criminal and civil penalties.

What's going on here?

According to sources close to the case, the harassers are fans of Brandi Glanville, star of Bravo's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It is not known if the fans have a connection to Glanville, 40.

Before the Bravo TV show, Glanville was best known as the model ex-wife to Eddie Cibrian, and mother of their two kids.

Quick backstory: In 2009, Cibrian was photographed romantically involved with Rimes, whilst he he was still married to Glanville, on the set of a Lifetime film in 2009. Cibrian and Glanville later divorced in 2010 -- and Rimes married Cibrian in 2011.

Such was born Team Brandi vs. Team LeAnn.

The fans have Twitter handles such as @8Smileys, @eileenyover, @calimommy09, @bree_sees_bs -- or as one member referred to them, the "Brandi Bunch."

Some of the Tweeters, while having private accounts, announce themselves in 160-character Twitter bios as "Team Brandi."

There is the @blockedbyleann Twitter page -- which calls itself the "official #blockedbyleann fan club" tracking Rimes "imminent meltdown."

And, there is the Curious Case of LeAnn Rimes blog, with the URL address of "lunaticleannrimes."

The blog has paparazzi shots of Rimes and Cibrian -- and, most notably, a 20-minute phone recorded conversation, posted Aug. 19.

In the heated discussion between an apparent Twitter harasser and Rimes, the woman asserts several times she has not been set up or paid by Glanville. Rimes appears to call Glanville "vindictive as ****."

"Brandi has done plenty, and don't tell me that she hasn't," Rimes tells the woman.

Rimes also pleads, several times, for a stop to the correspondence: "It's not ok ... You take care of your family, who I'm sure you love very much, and I will take care of mine."

It is on this legal peg Rimes hangs her hat on. California law protects indivuals -- both public and private -- from being tape-recorded  -- as the site has done.

California's wiretapping law is a "two-party consent" law. California makes it a crime to record or eavesdrop on any confidential communication, including a private conversation or telephone call, without the consent of all parties to the conversation.

As of Thursday, the recording is still up on the Internet.

According to a message on Twitter, the Curious Case of LeAnn Rimes site has received tens of thousands of page views since the recording was posted.

Or at least, that's what Rimes would have you believe -- the Tweeters say they are being unfairly targeted as private inviduals.

Rimes is the stalker, the Tweeters claim, alluding to the country star encouraging fans to harass her -- and to "stalking" the writer known as @8smileys, also known as Kimberly Smiley.

 

 

“I was blocked by LeAnn immediately after I started speaking to Brandi fans on Twitter,” Smiley told the Huffington Post in a recent interview.

Smiley said her job and her child’s school address were posted on Twitter by Rimes fans.

Although the trio of Glanville, Rimes, and Cibrian has appeared to cooperate around the children -- they have been snapped by paparazzi co-existing -- the Twitter malice has not gone away.

The group traded numerous Tweets throughout 2012 -- and some leading up to Rimes' 30th birthday, which was Aug. 28.

Including Rimes on some Tweets and not on others yet still pertaining to her, the group said they were releasing segments of the phone conversation on Twitter. One said it was a good "birthday gift for WeWe" [Rimes].

In one troubling Tweet, one of the group's members wrote #Snapped -- the hash tag for the Oxygen TV show Snapped in which cheated-on wives seek revenge and inflict physical harm on the women who take with up with their  husbands.

Rimes is represented by L.A. attorney Larry Stein, who spoke to Celebuzz about the case after it emerged the singer had entered in-patient treatment to deal with emotional stress.

"There has been this cyber-bullying that has been going on for a considerable period of time," said Stein.

"Apparently, most of this started when LeAnn started dating Eddie Cibrian ... These women [on Twitter] have been merciless -- vitriolic in their attacks. Like most celebrities, Rimes didn't like it, but she hoped things would get better.

"They don't understand who she is or who she stands for."  

Stein asserts the women are likely engaged in an imaginary relationship with Rimes, who they don't know personally.

Apparently, the stress of the situation may have started to wear on Rimes -- in a big development this week.

On Wednesday, as Celebuzz confirmed, Rimes checked herself voluntarily into a 30-day inpatient facility to cope with what her, Marcel Periseau, calls "anxiety and stress."

Her rep explained, "While there will be speculation regarding her treatment, she is simply there to learn and develop coping mechanisms. While privacy isn't expected, it's certainly appreciated."

Rimes isn't the only well-known star to deal with the headaches -- and in some cases, real threats -- online. 2012 has exploded with claims of celebrities being bullied on Twitter.

The list of publicly declared bullied celebrities includes The View's Sherri Shepherd, Michael Jackson's 14-year-old daughter Paris Jackson, and Australia's Next Top Model judge Charlotte Dawson.

Glanville, also, has complained on Twitter of hostile folks she has encountered on the site.

Lesser known online personalities, such as teenage "Friday" singer Rebecca Black and "Leave Britney Alone" vlogger Christopher Cross, are among the most bullied "public figures" on the web, reportedly. Black -- who is a freshman in high school -- was threatened with death if her music was not removed from the web.

"THIS IS A THREAT & I’M PISSED," Shepherd tweeted in early June, over the course of numerous days of messages.

"This online bullying nonsense has got to stop… I need Twitter to step up. For someone to say I need to be raped… Really? You think I should be raped in a back alley? Let’s see if the police agree with you. I took a pic of your tweet. I’M FILING A POLICE REPORT. SO TELL ME NOW WHAT SHOULD BE DONE WITH ME."

It is an area of developing law, both in criminal circumstances and communications law.

As determined independently by states, lawyers are lobbying for more protections of individuals -- including public figures -- if a published incitement of harm leads to a third party action.

Numerous A-list celebrities have taken public stances against bullying -- including Justin Bieber, Meryl Streep, and Johnny Depp.

Initiatives such as No H8, promoted by Rimes, encourage tolerance.

Of course, it's hard not to take a position against a purely negative act.

Still, buoyed by the release of acclaimed documentary Bully this year, efforts have been made to highlight it with the accessibility of access to media publishing -- and how anyone can impact others with tough talk behind a computer keyboard.

 What do you think of LeAnn's case? Is she being bullied? Should laws be passed to stop this?

    I totally agree with you about these supposed *grown-ass adults*. Not that it matters at this point, but people should be aware that the aptly named Gross, is a vicious and psychotic troll who steals nicknames and tells horrendous lies about total strangers. I lost what I thought were friends because this freak decided to target me and destroy my good name. I have never hurt anyone, ever. But I did disagree with her once. I realise I've not lost anything worth having, because my supposed friends were obviously dumb as planks, but still I was very hurt and for absolutely no reason.

Now that is one disturbed individual who is completely obsessed. His vitriol is mind numbing. Now that IS someone who is in dire need of a hospital stay.He’s dangerous and someone should out him and issue an order of protection. Celebitchy will do anything for hits and negligent for not banning the crazy stalkers running rampant on that site, especially the ones who pretend to be BBs or Brandi supporters like Little Darling!

    I do not have a twitter nor facebook account (odd apparently, so I have heard). But, isn't there an 'off' switch if one does not want to see or hear the opinions of the rest of the world? These are grown-ass adults fighting over the internet. ADULTS! Not middle-school children. Simple solution- if you can't deal with what you read, then log off! Further, if you do not want the attention, then do not post a thousand and one photos of yourself in a bikini and tweets for the world to see. If you ask for the attention, the world will certainly give it. *common sense*

    Actually, Blair, it is these very people who are on some kind of gov't assistance or disability who make up the majority of cyberbullies and trolls online. They don't have extra spending cash for luxuries so trolling online is their main source of entertainment. They're usually supported by outside entities be it gov't assistance or family members. They've alienated themselves from real life relationships and spend their lives online. High income trolls don't really exist. Mostly, we the taxpayers are actually supporting these cyberbullies/trolls in one form or another. Then you run the gamut of bored housewife types and it becomes an epidemic. LeAnn's actions will blow the lid off of the sheer numbers of our citizens who are wasting their lives online and not giving back to the community. Not spending time volunteering/working because they usually suffer personality disorders and mental illness and can't work well with others. As a society, we have a new problem.

    This post sounds awfully familiar? People are gathering all the tweets that Leann's fans have made to the BBs and to Brandi. What exactly do you think this means? That those posts will match the posts that you have been leaving here all day. So if you had any common sense, you would stop posting. Since you just took the time and energy to make a post telling people to get a life and mind their business, you have an opinion on this. So then by your logic you need to get a life, mind your own business and take care of your familiar? Isn't this the same post you make on twitter as stopleannhate, anditfeelslikex, and truthliesex? And yet you are not embarassed by the fact that Leann and her lawyer fed this site bogus stories? It doesn't embarass you as a woman that Leann is using cyberbullying to hide the real reason she is in rehab? People will mind their own business when Leann and the fans she keeps sending here to post mind theirs. Considering that Celebuzz is taking a lot of heat for posting this once sided story and Leann's lawyer is spinning that Leann is the victim, why are Leann and her fans still making posts like this?

    And Leann's laywers said that Leann was the victim. Thanks for making yet another post AMEJEAN! I guess you think that you are immune and can do whatever you want since Leann's lawyer is on the scene now, right? Why do you hate women so much? The only troll is you. But keep posting so that Celebuzz has more posts to compare to the posts that people have saved from your stalking and harassment of Brandi and the BBs! Why are you still posting in the first place? Didn't you say something about people wasting their time and life?

    I know! Nobody was able to get through to her that her detractors are straight up messes, homely and with no lives? Does she not realize the kind of people who are trolls and cyberbullies do so because they are miserable and angry about the hand they've been dealt? Did no one explain how catty some women are when they envy? She needs better people backing her.

    You know Bob, if you are a friend of hers, as you said, then maybe you should tell her that putting her whole life on twitter is a sort of bullying as well...everybody knows she did it in the first place to piss Brandy off...every day, every hour, every minute, she had to rub it in her face...and she should have not done it for only one reason, out of respect for the kids. I don't blame her for falling for a married guy, what can you do, it happens, they probably did not want it to happen this way, and no they did not act properly, but then putting their happiness over twitter so everybody can see it and making sure to rub it in Brandy's face... not fair at all and not easy for the ex to get over it. So to me, LeAnn isn't better! She started the bullying!

  • gross

    @Bob You can always tell when Leann's fans are guilty because they resort to name calling. Calling me a moron isn't going to change the fact that you collect Leann's bikinis, send those bikinis to her other fans asking them to model them for you and to take photos of themselves in the photo, and then have a picture of a 10 yo child modeling one of Leann's bikinis for you. I see you are not denying the fact that you collect Leann's bikinis. So no one is lying or making up stories about you. We also know that when the Youtube recording was posted to Youtube that you reported it over and over so that it had to be taken down. Bob, just stop posting. Because I'm quite sure that you are creating more problems for both you and Leann. How can her lawyer continue with these lies when you have posts by Bob who collects bikinis that Leann sends to him?

    If you are the editor, then you should know that there are two sides to every story. Instead of trying to play Leann as the victim, you should have contacted the twitter girls you mentions in the above article. If you did, you would have found out that they started following her and commenting on her AFTER they witnessed Leann and her twitter followers bashing and harassing Brandi. There are screen shots of Leann laughing and encouraging her followers to say vile nasty things to the mother of her step children after she is the one who broke up the family. Leann rimes is NOT THE VICTIM. Sad that you are so intent to get on her good side, that you didnt research the story.

    Does no one love this pathetic little fool enough to tell her the truth? That if she would just ignore what people say about her these people will eventually just go away? Someone needs to sit her down and explain that her insistance in "explaining" everything to the world just brings the hate back in spades? That if she would just keep a low profile and live her own life she won't have to concern herself with what some fat housewife in Nebraska says about her and she won't be so stressed. I don't suppose her lawyer will, he's making too much money off her pathetic delusions but for crying out loud, isn't there anyone that this ridiculous little twit will listen to? Does she really thinks the effect of this lawsuit is worth it, or doesn't she realize what a sad joke this lawsuit is...and the joke is on her. She has pretty much become a laughingstock with her embarrassing antics and I for one think the worst thing of all is that there is no one in her life who will explain to her that she is bringing all of this down on herself. She can make a lot of trouble for these women but all they really did was expose her as a big, pathetic mess. While I am sure she is embarrassed, (and she should be) if she hadn't chosen to make the call in the first place she wouldn't have left herself open to this...it's really her own fault regardless of the legalities. What a little ninny this girl is. None of this would be happening at all if she understood the value of discretion, which she obviously doesn't.

    @Bob And this is precisely why Leann's laywer has a problem with the case. You are name calling, so that tells me that you do have photos of a 10 yo dressed in one of Leann's bikinis. Bob you might want to stop posting. Notice how "Bob" and Amejean, I mean BustedBBs, is making all these nasty comments about the BBs because they think Leann's lawsuit against the people will protect them? Really? Stop posting, the backlash is growing and with Leann being connected to people like you there is no way that this is going to work out for Leann.

    I have know LeAnn for 16 years and also know dozens of her most loyal and long time fans and never once has LeAnn EVER ask any of us to bash Brandi. On the other hand I have fought back with members of the Brandi Bunch when they find it neccessary to call me dirty names and make rude comments because I am a friend and fan of LeAnn. However, if it turns them on to follow my tweets and stalk me they are welcome to do so if it will help fullfill their lonely and pitiful lives. Again.. I have never bashed Brandi or has LeAnn ever once encouraged me to do so!!! Twitter County Housewives.. Please find something else to fill your time other than stalking LeAnn and her fans... You all spend your lives absorbed in what she and they do EVERYDAY!! Feel free to check our timelines, I think you will see which side is consumed with the bashing of which women.

    I agree she handled herself poorly. Roll your eyes and leave it at that. There has to be something innately wrong wi/a person who spends their gift of this life interacting and tormenting another online. People who have rich, full lives just don't participate in this behavior. There is something deeply wrong with you if you do. You will never catch a beautiful and/or successful woman wasting her time attacking another woman without goal directed behavior for financial gain. Only losers partake in such behaviors. Flabbergasted that you women are defending yourselves. Aren't you ashamed and embarrassed?

    @BustedBs Thanks for poking a big hole in Leann's laywer's defense. Since you sit on twitter and make these same comments we know who you are. You have Leann and her lawyer claiming that she is the victim and then you come and make a comment like this? No matter how you spin it, Leann is wrong. Why don't you tell Celebuzz how you attempted to contact that teacher's place of employment and the nasty things you have been saying about her daughter? Leann and her lawyer have no case because of you. Did you also tell Celebuzz how your comment was deleted on Huffington Post when you attempted to make this same comment on their site about the teacher and her daughter? Some people saved that comment. Maybe they should send that to Leann's lawyer and Celebuzz! Doesn't the BOB guy have photos of a 10 year old wearing Leann's bikinis? Do you honestly think that what he says is valid?

You mean to tell me that every woman and man that dislikes Leann or disapproves of the way she has handled herself must be ugly? get a grip! People don't have much of an issue with the affair, affairs happen. IS the way she has handle herself, the situation, the way she has flaunted her affair, the way she has treated the mother of those boys, the whole "in your face" attitude she has. She gets no sympathy from people, only from her paid employees and the Twitter fans she pays to travel and see her. Poor Leann, now she is making up more lies with her anxiety story to deflect from the real story. Imagine when Eddie cheats on her? she is going to loose her mind!! LOL!!!

One woman (a teacher, no less) has even brought her twentysomething daughter into the fray. Now THAT is embarrassing!

    Leann Rimes is not the victim of bullying, she is using the "nervous brake down and anxiety" in order to take the attention away from the fact that she was caught red handle. She was recorded talking garbage about Brandi, Eddie's ex wife. She is using the rehab story to deflect from the real story. No one is harassing Leann, but Leann has harassed Brandi and has had her fans harass Brandi and Brandi's supporters. It is all documented ALL OF IT leann, you know your time has come and now you want to use the "going into rehab because I have been bullied and harassed" is all lies!!

What is it with Leann and lawsuits? BTW, didn't Celebuzz forget to post about how Leann's friend(DB) bullied a blogger because she wrote an article about how Leann was using her fans and friends ot bully Brandi on twitter?

    1) I do all of that on a regular basis, and unlike Leann, I don't only do it when I can involve paparazzi. What about the poor kids she was supposed to help with "Give" that she did next to nothing for? She sure used them to promote herself though, hmm? You act like she did something huge, but sorry, regular people do the same things all the time. We may not purchase 300 coats at once, but we give time and money WITHOUT expecting something in return. Leann does whatever will benefit her, in my opinion. Do you honestly think anyone falls for her crap? C'mon, you can read a message board ANYWHERE and see that clearly isn't the case. Further, I needn't be your imaginary deity to make observations about Ms. Rimes. She puts herself in the spotlight, and engages in psychotic Twitter rants and wars with her "haters" so she brings judgement upon herself. If Twitter is so detrimental to her well-being then why not leave it like a normal human-being? Oh, that's right, because she enjoys the attention far too much. Hey, remember when she was tweeting about her affair from Wewenlove and Dean busted her out for it? Good times!

    Are you the same BOB who buys Leann’s bikinis and then sends it to her other fans asking them to take photos in the binikis? And one of the photos that was sent to you involved a 10 year old girl wearing one of Leann’s bathing suits? This is the people Leann attracts. BTW if Leann supporst NoH8 then can you please explain why she hangs out with people who say mean and nasty things about lesbians? Two of her top fans, ones that she has been photographed with several times, write the most nasty things about lesbians. Since Leann supports NoH8 people have tried to understand how this works. Leann’s lawyer isn’t right because his client is guilty of the same thing. By his logic Leann has an imaged relationship with these people. With as much as Leann puts on a public forum about her life, just look at how many exclusive interviews she has given Celebuzz today, we know plenty about Leann’s life. Like how Leann and her lawyer are trying to use cyberbullying to cover up that Eddie is cheating.

    Because I am a fan and a friend of LeAnn Rimes some of the same people who are harassing her are also making disgusting comments about me on twitter. It is unbelievable how these people can be so vile and evil!! It is a daily thing with these nuts who obviously have nothing better to do with their lives than harass and bully people. There are also many other of LeAnns fans who have been a target of their venomous tongues. I have dubbed them the Twitter County Housewives and I know they must always be watching the sky for fear a house may fall on them. These people have no idea who LeAnn is and what a generous, kind, caring and loving heart she has. I love LeAnn Rimes and I am proud and blessed to have her as a friend.

    Also, who cares if she cheated or is being cheated on? Remember: WE DON'T KNOW HER.

    If you think Kelly has no life and spends all her time bashing to Leann, you clearly have no idea who Kelly is.

    I think Stein said it well when he said these are people who have an imagined relationship w/ Rimes. I'm embarrassed for Ms. Jaramillo. Twitter was the best and worst thing that happened for celebrities. I agree if someone is offended they should get off Twitter and I'm not sure how smart it is to sue or make a big issue of it the way she is, but it doesn't excuse the level of trolling.

    Erin, I am not wasting my time, what I do for a living has been called into question. I offered my services to Ms. Rimes lawyer to help with the confusion. What is odd about that?

    Leann, Celebuzz, and her lawyer are only insisting that Leann's rehab stay is about cyberbullying to cover up the fact that Eddie is cheating. Why would Leann be so insensitive and use real issues to cover up for her husband's affairs? Eddie Cibrian Cheating?

    Leann is turning the tables? So once again rather than address Leann's bad behavior, you turn this into yet another story depicting Leann as the victim even though there is ample evidence against Leann? Celebuzz what planet are you on? You do realize that when Leann hooked up with Eddie she didn't have a twitter account right? Remember the WEWENLOVE twitter account? And the story about how Leann was using it to stalk Brandi? Please ask Leann's attorney about the twitter accounts WEWENLOVE, Witchy 33, Brandiliarville, Brandiwhineville, Juvenilex, AllisionJ. Leann, Celebuzz, and her attorney are making such a big mess of this. Please don't tell us that Leann posed for NoH8 because it's obvious to everyone that Leann's pose for NoH8 was just to promote herself and Eddie. Did you know that other sites are posting about how Eddie is cheating. So it makes it even more obvious that she is only using this cyberbullying thing to hide the fact that she is getting treatment because her husband is cheating on her.

    LeAnn seeks people out to argue with on twitter, including people who are only complimenting Brandy. I know it sounds crazy, but, I have seen this happen.

    Kelly Jaramillo - and your ilk - move on. Find something productive to do with your life. I'm wasting my last three minutes at work. Apparently you're dedicating your entire life to inserting yourself into the lives of total strangers. Odd. Really, disturbingly odd.

    And Celebuzz, If you choose not to publish my comments, I will go elsewhere, as your headlines are misleading and have no facts to back them up. Again, I have given out my info for either you or Leann Rimes attorney Mr. Stein to contact. Crickets, always crickets.

    Did she think banging a woman's husbands was going to be a life full of roses.

    Here's a tip, LeAnn: STAY OFF TWITTER AND FACEBOOK! It is possible to live a happy life without social media. If you can't, you have bigger problems than your haters, who are obviously disturbed. Why would you want to interact with them at all? Just say no to social media!

    Is she for real? SHE is the bully. You can't sue everyone who has an opinion of you when your a public figure. *rolling my eyes*

    Obviously, I need to repeat myself. I wrote a tweetlonger after Mr. Stein had rumbled about legal action against Kim Smiley, concerning the tape and the alleged editing of the tape. I gave Mr. Stein our information so that he could contact us when he was preparing his lawsuit to prove that Leann Rimes has been the victim of bullying and illegal activity. Instead, Mr. Stein goes to Celebuzz to make his case that Leann is the victim. I am reposting my original tweetlonger, as it seems nobody screencapped it for this article. Again, Mr. Stein - if you and your client feel that the bullying of Leann has sent her to rehab, and the taping of her calling Kimberly Smiley is grounds for a lawsuit, please call experts in the field of audio editing for testimony, rather than making ridiculous and unfounded claims to an online tabloid. Thank you. Original twitlonger, below: Kelly MahanJaramillo (@KellyMJara) Posted Friday 24th August 2012 from Twitlonger Okay, once again @leannrimes. If you are "turning the matter of the taping over to your lawyer" will you please be sure to subpoena both my husband @tomashradcky and myself? I am still represented by Gorfaine/Schwartz, I am sure you know who they are. Despite the fact that Tomas and I went independent years ago, I still have that whole agencies team of lawyers at my disposal. I am a fairly decent expert concerning audio editing. Tomas's knowledge is frightening, and between the two of us we have a roster of directors, other composers and their legal staff who would be happy to back up our testimony. At first, according to you, the call that YOU made to @8smileys did not exist. Now, this "non-existent" call has been "edited." Your poor Mr. Stein is eating tums for breakfast, lunch and dinner over that glaring discrepancy alone. You made the call, @leannrimes. You also had it on speakerphone, immediately negating all privacy issues. If anyone had properly mixed or edited that taping, @8smileys DOG would have been dialed waaay down, just for starters. And for the people who's only complaint is that they do not like @8smileys voice? Her voice would have been auto-tuned to make it more pleasing to those who have absolutely no other argument concerning Leann Rimes language and overall aggressive behavior and unbelievable audacity on that phone call. So please, @leannrimes - have Mr. Stein contact us. Tomas can prove, by running the raw recording through Final Cut Pro that there is NOT ONE edit. The audio graph shows it as one constant conversation, the whole way. No cross fades, no mixing, and no edits. There is a big difference between "snippets" of a conversation, which were first put out publicly, and actual "edits." We are ready and willing to go to court to prove there is not one single edit in either the "snippet" OR the full twenty minute tape. Contact us here: http://www.tomashradcky.com/ Thank you, look forward to hearing from you. Kelly Mahan Jaramillo
