LeAnn Rimes’ prolific Tweeting is apparently something her husband, Eddie Cibrian, took issue with long before she sought treatment for stress issues.
The 30-year-old singer announced she has entered facility to treat “stress and anxiety,” having endured a relentless, vitriolic campaign of cyber-bullying.
But could LeAnn Rimes’ emotional breakdown have been prevented?
Even though he’s been nothing but supportive of his wife through this bullying ordeal, for Eddie Cibrian, this may be an I-told-you-so-moment of sorts.
From her over-sharing about Eddie’s kids to posting countless bikini pics and chatting with fans for hours on end, the actor has long been concerned.
“Eddie hates Twitter and doesn’t want LeAnn to be on there so much,” a source close to the couple said, and this was before the star’s breakdown.
“He would ask her to not meet people through Twitter and wanted her to get off of there … he thought she was out of control and not able to handle it.”
Eddie was worried about his wife’s interaction on the Internet with fans and detractors, and for good reason, as it looks to have taken a severe toll.
Two people LeAnn claims to have extended an olive branch to recorded her illegally and posted excerpts of their conversation online. She’s suing.
Bottom line … Rimes’ haters need to chill out and take it down a notch or 20, but LeAnn may want to follow Eddie’s advice on this one as well.
