LeAnn Rimes Cyber Bullying Lawsuit: Husband's Ex-Wife Brandi Glanville Lends Support To Woman Being Sued By Singer (EXCLUSIVE)

Brandi Glanville, the ex-wife of LeAnn Rimes' husband Eddie Cibrian, tweeted support to one of the women facing a lawsuit from the country music superstar, Celebuzz has confirmed.

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.

    Come on, we all know that someone is YOU. You were arguing with Betty yesterday on twitter. So now you are trying to get back at Betty by posting her person information on twitter? You do know that this is just going to hurt Leann right? Why are you on another site making posts in someone else's name?

    I have no horse in this race. I've been contacted by someone invested in one of the camps here. This is a heads up for Betty Jones on Twitter. Seems "Betty" unwittingly provided links back to her true identity back in 2010. All of her personal info. is out there. They even have her home address. They're posting Google pics of her home...everything! Betty needs to find a new hobby as do the trolls who are harassing her by posting personal, private information. Betty, you are just TOO damn old to be involving yourself in this no-win war.

    I have to say I have seen a lot of comments/comebacks made by Leann fans but this is the most original. That said its a little alarming how you keep harping on about this "aspie" stuff. It's a bit disturbing, actually.

    I actually agree with parts of this statement. I agree she is "milking" it although I wouldn't use that term. I do think she is making lemonade with the lemons life dealt her. She has 2 kids to support. I doubt she enjoys the type of attention she got from this. But I do see where you are coming from.

    Watch out, playing with BustedB/Gayle/sickitten/the person who is on another site making posts using Brandi's private parts as his name is like playing with a stupid snake. He keeps trying to land a bite but keeps missing his mark! But it's interesting how he thought he could emphasize his point by pretending to be a "different" person who hates both Leann and Brandi. He gave himself away because after making posts on this site he goes to the other site and makes posts using Brandi private parts as his name. Why are Leann's fans so dense?

    Says the person who is sitting here defending Leann, while claiming he isn't a fan. Wow, Leann was "discovered" on Star Search, like that makes a difference. These days Leann isn't known for her talent, but for her cyberbullying, how she uses her fans to do her dirty work, playing the victim, tweeting, and setting up staged photo-ops. Leann must have gotten out of "rehab" yesterday! Does her threapist know that she is visiting blogs and posting comments in defense of herself?

    @Lisa Sickitten(who is one of Leann's most loyal fans) is on another site making posts using Brandi's private parts as his name and making some very nasty comments about the people who post on Celebrity Bitchy, so what do you think this says about you, Leann, and her fans? What does it say about you when you try to justify Leann's actions by blaming Brandi or making comments about how Brandi is old even though Leann looks like she is in her 50s? Leann made an album and wrote songs about how she was sleeping with Eddie while he was married to Brandi, yet you want to tell Brandi to move on and insist that Brandi is the one milking this? If it weren't for Celebuzz no one would know Leann's name.

    It is Brandi's way to fame. She is milking it like any other talentless skank in Hollywood. What else could she do? Her marriage was already over and she was all too aware of that. She is too old to model, not looking that great...I guess a call girl could have been in her future. Then again, she is much older now. No one would even know her name if it weren't for this whole ridiculous debacle with LeAnn Rimes and that jerk.

    As someone with Autistic family members, all I have to say is your incessant accusing people ( from other websites nonetheless which really has no place here) of having autistic spectrum disorders is disgusting because you are trivializing real behavioral disorders.

    again, Holly...the illegality of it comes into question when it you are recording a conversation that has no expectation of privacy. But I assume the idea of legal grey areas must go way over your head so I'll say good luck with your google alerts of any and all Leann related stories. i'm sure if you worked for a living it must get hard to copy and paste that everywhere.

    Let me explain this clearly. Here's a comment made by one of the anti LeAnn camp on another website I checked: Wow, Brandi, the people that are hoping that you’re backtracking and causing yourself more pain are not your friends. They’re simply Leann’s enemies; there’s a big difference.- eileen says: September 10, 2012 at 12:44 pm Why would you assume any of the above people are her friends?? Just because they don’t like Leann, doesn’t mean they are her friends unless Brandi is BFFs with most of the human population. Daisy says: September 11, 2012 at 2:31 am That’s just a figure of speech. She just meant those people don’t want the best for Brandi.- ______________________ See how Eileen takes the comment in it's literal format, unable to read between the lines? Daisy has to interpret the implied nuance for her. That's Aspie-ish.

    @Sickitten(aka BustedBs) Wait, are you still posting? What happened to focusing on life or finding a cause to be obsessed with. So then by your logic you are Leann because you have assigned yourself to represent Leann in her troubles. So tell us, what are you getting out of this? Is it belonging to a sisterhood of dysfunctional trolls? Just WHAT is this you are doing for you? You are just mad because your false story to Celebuzz is being slammed. And rather than just admit that you lied, you convinced this site to put up yet another false story.

    God forgives all,sinners but not. hypocrites. God is also just. I dislike people that use God as excuse to justify another person bad behavior. Leann knew what she was doing and had no problem flaunting her behavior we all err in life but we also have to reap what we sow no one gets a pass. Time will tell what Leann has learned by her future actions.

    @Sickitten It would be nice if you took the time to at least practice what you preached. How can you tell someone else to find purpose in another obsession or focus their energy on themselves, when you came back here and made yet another post? So then by your logic, you are not proud of what you are doing because people automatically assume that there is something wrong with you and you are not focusing on you and your life. If Leann was getting help, then Celebuzz would have never posted 1 article in favor of her and she would not have started tweeting or blogging the moment she got out of rehab. The only one making Leann question herself is Leann Rimes and her friendship with people who feed Celebuzz false information. Why has she been giving all these exclusives to Celebuzz since the day she entered the spa? Well now we know why you and Leann keep feeding false information to Celebuzz. The reason Leann doesn't have a caring ally is because she does awful things and surrounds herself with yes people. What is your reward because obviously you are getting something out of the deal considering you keep coming back to make posts. So why don't you find one of those tons of other causes.

    LeAnn is getting help for her part in all of this. Someone at the "rehab" is going to make LeAnn question herself and admit her part in this. All throughout this debacle, Rimes didn't have a wise and truly caring ally. She probably has more money than God so her getting help isn't an issue. What about the rest of you ripping her a new one gossip site to site? Where's your help? Where's your support? You are your support but you need to focus your energy on you and your life. F this LeAnn/Brandi crusade. There's no reward for the soldiers here. It just kills me to see all of this raw energy go to waste. There are tons of other causes out there who would love to have you on board. So please, find your purpose in another obsession that you will be proud to be aligned. You can't be proud of this one b/c people will automatically assume there's something wrong with you. Not a reward.

    As a woman in her 20's I will say that everyone's behavior in this situation is extremely childish and I expect better from ALL, including LeAnn. The problem I have with your post is you seem to give LeAnn an out because she is 30 and the other women are 40? I don't think so 30 is wayyy old enough to know better. You say to LeAnn's credit well she has no credit she should be held accountable for her actions. She totally harassed Brandi or had other people harass her and defame her for years. It is not okay. Also, you are insulting other posters and calling them emotionally stunted? Ummm hellooo that is cyberbullying! Everyone is entitled to their opinion even you but the purpose of commenting here is not to insult other posters.

    Hi BustedBs/Gayle, Says the poster who came back to this site and made TWO more posts, because he is "focusing" all of his attention not on his life, but this squabble. You are just mad because the information that you fed to Celebuzz backfired.Uh oh, you’ve just broadcasted your developmental disabilities, I’m afraid. YOU NEED to get yourself checked out. Waste no more time on this silly squabble and start focusing all of your attention on you. There are numerous online tests to evaluate if you are indeed on the Spectrum. Start there. And perhaps you should take your own advice. If you are going to lecture others on focusing, then we shouldn't see any more posts from you, right? Leann and her fans have a strange sense of logic, for some odd reason their rules and standards never apply to them. How are you going to tell someone else to focus on something else when as of now you have made 5 posts on this article, 1 on the other article, and probably made your rounds on twitter?

  • Holly Ison

    I believe that LeAnn asked the Lord to forgive her and when a person does that, they not only get it, but what they did gets thrown into the sea of forgetfulness. Oh what an awesome God the Lord is! (smiles) God bless you and LeAnn always!!! Holly in East Tennessee (a day one fan of her) P.S. Saying something online to someone is one thing, but recording your phone chat without the other person's consent is another thing and that right there is what LeAnn is not letting that lady get away with because it is against the law anyways.

  • Holly Ison

    Right, and to LeAnn's credit, she ISN'T a mother b/c I would think once one becomes a mother, one's whole outlook would shift. Rimes just turned 30. Sadly, most women involved in this debacle are in their 40s! It would seem developmental disabilities are at play here. Unable to step outside the situation, instead focusing on this as though you have been personally wronged. There's a stage in life when we make this leap, usually around our 18th birthdays. Many of you are stuck & stunted at the emotional level of a ten year old. You need to find out why.

    If Leann wasn't involving herself in petty and small behavior, then Celebuzz wouldn't keep posting these biased articles, you wouldn't be posting, and Leann would have apologized for what she said in that tape instead of cooking a fake story about how she is stressed because of cyberbullying.

  • mary

    Well she claims to be a "bonus" mother doesn't she? If that is so she has responsibilities to those boys as well and should not be involving herself either. She can't have it both ways. I personally think Brandi shouldn't get involved either but LeAnn is a step mom and BRAGS all the time about it so therefor she should be judged the same.

    Zoom! Right over their heads. Brandi should never align herself with these silly, vindictive women. She needs a legal professional. Secondly, Lexi & Kim aren't being sued over tweets of any kind. They're being sued for recording the conversation. Brandi just proved she's as developmentally stunted as everyone else in this whole debacle. At least LeAnn isn't a mother involving herself in petty and small behavior.

    Wow, more LAZY and INACCURATE reporting from Celebuzz. What a shock! Whoever writes these articles needs to learn how to research things before they write about them. The tweet is STILL on Brandi's timeline. Go take a look yourself. It now appears after yesterday's giant embarrassment you are now switching angles and going after Brandi. Its totally possible for Brandi to support Leann's efforts to seek treatment (if that's what she is actually doing) and for her to not agree with the teacher and her daughter being sued. NOBODY is supporting this woman and her daughter being sued. Its the ultimate act of bullying IMO (and many others). Brandi was on the receiving end of Leann's Twitter antics for years. Of course she is sympathetic. Leann had no right to expect privacy when she made a phone call in a restaurant surrounded by other people with the call on speaker phone. Therefore there's no merit to this LOLsuit. So when are you guys going to follow suit after Huffington Post and CORRECT the highly inaccurate and defamatory article from yesterday?

  • calimommy09

    Holly Ison The Lord was looking out for Leann when she was committing adultery with Eddie but she didn't care. Brandi tweeted she didn't want anyone suing. It appears you are never are factual. Regardless the Enquirer article stated the" real reason" for Leann rehab has to do with her husband cheating. That seems plausible that would cause her stress and anxiety because that is something she would have to deal with. That"bullying" has gone both ways . Leann just got caught in the act.

  • jessica! :)

    did your ex husbands mistress gloat, taunt, and bully you? Did she have her paid employees trash you on a public forum and accuse you of being a bad mother and a drunk? Did she go to a plastic surgeon to make sure she looked exactly like you? Did she marry your ex in the same place you married him wearing the same designer? I am so sorry that you were cheated on and good for you not whining about it but everyone's story is different. My dad cheated on my mom with a ho like LeAnn and she tried to taunt my mom but it didn't work because me and my brother wont even look her in the eyes let alone call her bonus mom. Brandi doesn't need the spotlight as the scorned exwife she has plenty of spotlight on RHOBH. However you are entitled to your opinion and I respect it, just wanted to give you mine. Cyberbullying is evil and cowardly I will be doing none of that so I welcome any response you may have and I hope you have a great day!

    The BBs are also posting examples of how Darrell Brown, his partner, Leann's road manager, stylist, and fan cyberbullied Brandi and anyone who dared supported her, notice how Celebuzz conveniently ignored all of that evidence! If Celebuzz is going to do a exclusive on bullying tweets, why didn't they address or post the bullying tweets that are coming from Leann and her staffmembers?

    obviously you spend too much time paying attention to your Leann Rimes google alerts and not enough time studying legal precedent. section 632c of law: "The term "confidential communication" includes any communication carried on in circumstances as may reasonably indicate that any party to the communication desires it to be confined to the parties thereto, but excludes a communication made in a public gathering" all this teacher has to prove is 1. the call was made in the restaurant which will be easy to prove as there are photos of it and others are chiming in the conversation on speaker phone since common sense says that a conversation taking place in public should have no reasonable expectation of privacy. 2. she was scared of the retribution a very wealthy woman could do given that she had so much hate towards a random woman on twitter to call her up and curse like that. Chances are, Leann will drop this lawsuit because her own actions in tolerating "cyberbullying" by her fans and employees towards Brandi Glanville will be brought out in court and the call itself will attract more negative attention. But if not, I have no problem seeing whats left of Leann's career crash because no other respectable country star is getting involved in stupid twitter battles, harassing phone calls with special ed teachers, and 25k lawsuits against average people who make less than 40k a year. Leann's own mean and nasty actions towards others (as evidenced by that call) brought this about and its about time she owned up to it and let the flames die down.

    May the Lord continue to look after LeAnn and give her the strength to over come the words out of those who do nothing but tear down her EVERY move. (bowing my head). God bless her always!!! Holly in East Tennessee (a day one fan of her) P.S. To me, she has every right in the world to sue that woman because putting her phone conversation with LeAnn online without LeAnn's consent is against the law and letting her get away with it would only make her think that its okay to do it again when its not.

    So you still are not going to correct the FALSE story you ran yesterday? Couldn't Celebuzz be sued because they are knowingly posting these false stories for Leann and her fans about the teacher and her daughter and purposely misleading other media outlets? I would have thought that Celebuzz would have apologized by now, but now they go after Brandi. Why didn't you post Brandi's comment where she says that Leann and her employees have been harassing on her for twitter for years?
