LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian fire back at Brandi Glanville after the Bravo reality TV star claimed the singer got her child "extremely ill" after they accidentally ate her laxatives. Both LeAnn and Eddie call Brandi's story a desperate attempt to keep her relevant in the public eye.
Brandi angered LeAnn and Eddie over her new interview with Us Weekly. "LeAnn has a severe eating disorder. 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! He gets extremely sick, and that freaks me the f**k out," Brandi claimed.
Brandi said she didn't want LeAnn around the children unless there's another adult with them because she didn't think the singer was stable. "I see Jakey, my 5-year-old, on a bike on Roundmeadow Road -- a very busy road where drunk drivers have crashed into their house... He doesn't have a helmet on and he's driving without his training wheels, which he doesn't even do at my house," she referred to a video posted by LeAnn.
In response LeAnn's representative said, "Her whole show is based on controversy, drama and publicity. 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...What better way to keep herself relevant?"
"Why is all the name calling just coming from one side?" the rep continued. "Brandi keeps using threatening and mean-spirited statements like 'I think she is a sociopath,' ... etc. and all LeAnn says is 'my boys,' 'my family' etc. Are LeAnn's words threatening or mean-spirited? I beg to differ."
"LeAnn and Eddie have the boys 50 percent of the time, so they are a family and LeAnn is a great and caring co-parent. As Brandi stated 'my boys love her' and LeAnn loves them," the publicist added. "Brandi keeps grasping at straws to make LeAnn seem like an unfit person."
"Brandi's story changes daily, one day it's an eating disorder, one day it's Twitter, one day the boys aren't safe, etc. She says she hasn't seen or spoken to LeAnn in months but yet knows everything that is going on. None of Brandi's allegations are true. People need to see it for what it is - PUBLICITY!"
Referring to LeAnn and Eddie's affair that led to Brandi and Eddie's divorce and possibly Brandi's constant hatred toward LeAnn, the publicist concluded, "It's time for Brandi to move on, LeAnn has!"
In the same tone, Eddie slammed his former wife in a statement to Us Weekly, "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."
Eddie also privately sent Brandi an email. "I know your life exists solely for the purpose of living and creating drama. It's a sad way to live. It's so obvious that you have to constantly mention my wife so people will care what comes out of your mouth," the actor fired back.
He concluded, "One day when...narcissism [is] not consuming you, you will realize how fortunate the kids are to have LeAnn in their life. She is amazing with them, as the kids will 100 percent attest to."
Brandi, meanwhile, insisted she had tried to contact Eddie about her concern but didn't get any response, so she's forced to take it to public. "And then when people say, 'Come on. Get over it.' How do you get over it? These are my children. I will never be over my children," she declared.
The star of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" added on Twitter, "Im not bitter Im concerned 4 MY kids,Im not n luv with EC n ANY way,Im happy 2 go BACK 2 therapy with them &PS I left him he didnt leave me."
