LeAnn Rimes Blames Carly Rose Sonenclar for Erratic X Factor Performance
The X Factor's surprise duets were some kinda wonderful, except for that whole LeAnn Rimes + Carly Rose Sonenclar thing. Carly and LeAnn took the stage to belt out "How Do I Live Without You," and let's just say it was a hot mess.
Carly sounded great per usual, but LeAnn was slightly off her game. In fact, she was reminding us of ourselves after we've had too many glasses of Franzia. As you might expect, the internet was overrun with speculation about LeAnn's apparent drunkenness, but this country sensation says she was far from intoxicated. In fact, she's blaming Carly!
"I was trying to help this 13-year-old girl who was having some trouble with the song," LeAnn tells TMZ. Meanwhile, her lawyer Larry Stein added "LeAnn was not performing the way she would normally perform, because she was on stage with a young girl... There have been a lot of untrue things said by others and it feeds into this sort of thing."
Turns out, LeAnn was also somewhat sloppy backstage — she even dropped an entire plate of food all over the floor, according to TMZ's sources! Then again, we can barely get through the evening without dropping pizza on our laps, and the only thing we're drunk on is Khloe Kardashian's smile.
Do you think LeAnn was acting weird? Weigh in below!
