LeAnn Rimes Denies Stepson Laxative Illness
Allegations have surfaced that LeAnn Rimes' stepson fell ill after he consumed some of her laxatives, but Rimes has denied this in a statement via a spokesperson, claiming "(It's) just more inaccuracies and half-truths."
Brandi Glanville was the accuser, saying that potentially dangerous pills were left around the house after her 12-year-old allegedly got sick because he thought they were candy. "Mason, my eldest, ate some of Le's candies and got extremely ill. And Le's candies are laxatives... Mason told me about it, and then Eddie's assistant, who was working for me at the time, also told me about it out of concern for my children," she told US weekly. "She has (a laxative) in every purse. Mason found one on the floor and thought it was a Skittle! They don't keep sugar in the house. He thought he finally found candy!"
Since denying these claims, Eddie Cibrian, 39, who was married to Brandi until their marriage hit the rocks in 2009, told the magazine: In a statement to Us, "It is absolutely ridiculous that my ex-wife continues to put the personal lives of myself, LeAnn, our sons and my family on public display for the sake of her notoriety. She is fully capable and has the means of contacting myself and LeAnn privately to discuss any matter concerning the children. The fact she chooses not to, should be pretty transparent. And while I do not wish to fuel her ever-igniting fire, there is a breaking point where enough is enough."
