LeAnn Rimes to Donate Proceeds of Cyber-Bullying Lawsuit to Charity if She Wins, Says Rep (EXCLUSIVE)
Leann Rimes, 30, has decided to to donate the proceeds of her cyber-bullying lawsuit to charity if she wins the case, Celebuzz has been told.
“Leann had always planned on giving any proceeds from the pending lawsuits to The Trevor Project," a rep for the singer confirmed.
"This is a cause she has always been passionate about."
The country superstar announced on Aug. 30 that she was entering an in-patient treatment program for anxiety and stress.
How is Rimes doing in treatment?
Despite the drama, a pal told Celebuzz that “LeAnn is doing extremely well and very positive about the therapy she is receiving.” The friend went on to add that Rimes will “definitely come out of this a better person.”
Supporters of the women who are being sued by her are taking to Twitter to raise money for the mother and daughter duo.
“Team Smiley” — in support of Kimberly and Lexi Smiley — two of Rimes’ noteworthy detractors on Twitter — are racking up donations — and have a website in their honor collecting money for their legal costs.
Rimes is still slated to go on an 23-date American tour from October to December. She also recently announced that her next album, Spitfire, will hit the shelves early next year.
