LeAnn Rimes: I Was NOT DRUNK on X Factor!

by at .

LeAnn Rimes swears she was not drunk on The X Factor last night, despite a head-scratching performance and a lot of speculation regarding it.

The 30-year-old strongly denies earlier celebrity gossip reports that she was impaired during her duet with finalist Carly Rose Sonenclar on Wednesday.

The singer was "in no way impaired," and any awkwardness was from "trying to help this 13-year-old girl who was having some trouble with the song."

LeAnn, through her lawyer Larry Stein, said Carly was nervous and had difficulty with some of the notes, and she was doing her best to help her through it.

Her performance seemed over-the-top to many, almost as if LeAnn were trying to upstage Carly, but her camp says people are reading too much into it.

Stein says that "LeAnn was not performing the way she would normally perform," but adds that it was only "because she was on stage with a young girl."

LeAnn does not understand the speculation, but Stein theorizes, "There have been a lot of untrue things said by others and it feeds into this sort of thing."
