LeAnn Rimes’ uneasy relationship with Brandi Glanville has been well established, but new reports have shed light on just how uneasy things once were.
Glanville, now a star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, made other threats so serious that Rimes seriously considered getting a restraining order.
Rimes, now married to Glanville’s ex-husband Eddie Cibrian, began an affair with Eddie while he and Brandi were married. This did not go over well.
“Brandi has told LeAnn to her face multiple times that she would kill her if she could,” a source close told Celebuzz of the bad blood that boiled.
Should LeAnn be scared for her safety? Even now?
“LeAnn is scared of Brandi and believes she is unstable. LeAnn’s own mother is concerned for her daughter’s safety too and regularly calls her to tell her so.”
In an interview with Australia’s NW magazine, Brandi Glanville recalled how she flew into a rage the first time she saw Rimes at her son’s soccer game.
“I remember walking up to practice and there she was with my baby in her lap,” Brandi said. “My blood was boiling, and I thought I was going to kill her.”
“I really thought I was going to physically hurt her.”
“But that was the first time I saw her that way – she was sitting in my soccer chair, under my tent, she’s got my kid on her lap and she’s there with my husband, and that was that little moment of total irrational fury.”
Fuelling Rimes’ fears, in an interview with Mix XM’s Hot Moms Club Radio on April 28 2011, Glanville admitted, “The first time I saw my baby sitting in her (LeAnn’s) lap, I wanted to kill her… I wanted to murder her.”
Well … at least Glanville’s honest and doesn’t own any firearms. Probably.
She also slashed Eddie Cibrian’s tires at one point, then admitted it. Glanville was married to Cibrian for eight years before they split in 2009.
