Leann Rimes is under siege again from Brandi Glanville - the ex-wife of Eddie Cibrian - and this time it's about a mystery illnesses suffered by one of her sons, who is now under the care of Rimes.
Allegedly, Rimes has an eating disorder, which means she carries at least one laxative around in her purse at all times. Misconstruing this for a piece of candy, Glanville claims, Mason ate one and fell ill. "I, unfortunately, don't find her to be stable," Glanville said, "and I don't want her around my kids when Eddie's not there -- or at least the nanny, his parents, someone. Mason, my eldest, ate some of Le's candies and got extremely ill. And Le's candies are laxatives. It was a big fucking deal for me, and I lost my mind. She has one in every purse. Mason found on on the floor and thought it was a Skittle! They don't keep sugar in the house. He thought he finally found candy."
Rimes, though, is not going down without a fight, and has issued a scathing retort, according to ABC News. "There is only one person constantly speaking to the press and that is Brandi. Why do you think that is? Her whole show is based on controversy, drama and publicity," her rep, Marcel Pariseau said. "She is the only one to gain by spewing forth inaccuracies, rants and half-truths. It's time for people to see it for what this really is -- she has a book and show to promote and sell."
