LeAnn Rimes Cyber Bullying Lawsuit: Husband’s Ex-Wife Brandi Glanville Lends Support To Woman Being Sued By Singer (EXCLUSIVE)
The outspoken star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills — who has been embroiled in a bitter feud with Rimes since Cibrian walked out on their marriage to be with the singer — called the legal action “unfair” in a message sent to Lexi Smiley via the social networking site on Sept. 8, but which she later removed.
In a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court the same day Rimes checked into a treatment facility to help cope with anxiety and stress that were reportedly brought on by Twitter attacks, Rimes, 30, claimed Smiley and her mother Kimberly illegally recorded a phone conversation — without her consent.
The “How Do I Live” singer is now suing for invasion of privacy.
What else did Glanville write in the message that has since disappeared?
“Sorry for all u and your mom are going through, it’s unfair,” the reality television star wrote in the message, before adding. “I don’t you guys personally but I will always speak the truth.”
According to sources close to the case, the Smileys are fans of Glanville, though it is not known if there is any tangible connection to the popular Bravo star.
Glanville married Cibrian in 2001 and the estranged pair has two sons together. But in 2009, Cibrian met Rimes, 30, while filming the Lifetime movie Northern Lights and the pair later tied the knot in April 2011.
While Glanville took down her controversial Twitter message, she has since continued her commentary.
“If I sued every person that ever harassed me on twitter I’d be a GAZZILIONAIRE!’ she wrote in a message which remains on her account.
40-year-old Glanville’s sympathy for Rimes — she previously issued a statement wishing her “all the best” – has seemingly waned.
“I saw some of the nasty tweets sent to LR they were MEAN but NOTHING compared 2 the ones her paid employees sent me over 2 yrs #hypocrit” she posted on Sept. 12.
