Leann Rimes - LeAnn Rimes: I won't 'encourage' my children into fame
LeAnn Rimes wouldn't ''encourage'' her own children into fame while they are young and insists that if she were to have kids with husband Eddie Cibrian, she would be honest about the ''hard'' journey to fame.
LeAnn Rimes wouldn't ''encourage'' her children to enter showbusiness.
The 30-year-old singer - who is stepmother to husband Eddie Cibrian's sons Mason, nine, and Jake, five, who he had with ex-wife Brandi Glanville - insists she will be honest about fame if she was to have children of her own with the 'CSI' star as she wouldn't want them thinking the journey to stardom is a ''fairy tale''.
She explained: ''I'd let [my own child] develop their talent but it's important to let kids be kids. I wouldn't encourage them to enter the industry at a young age.
''I'd be honest with them about what goes on - it's not a fairy tale. Wanting to be a superstar is all very well but don't believe the facade. Especially because it's getting harder to get into the industry anyway.''
LeAnn has been in a bitter feud with 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star Brandi ever since she married Eddie in 2011, but the blonde beauty - who was married to Dean Sheremet when she struck up a relationship with Eddie - tries to look at the positive outcomes of the situation and is confident of her true talent.
She told the Metro newspaper: ''It has been an ongoing story for [the US tabloids]. At least I sell magazines for them - I guess that's the positive - but it's involved some very wrong information.
''Sometimes I comment on it, sometimes I don't. They're going to write what they want to write anyway. I just read I bathe in Evian water - some of the stories are so insane.
''I try to let it roll off my back but it's gone on for a long time. I have a talent, I can sing. I don't earn my money from trying to hurt people.''
