LeAnn Rimes, Ex-Husband Get Into Twitter War Over “Gay” Comment
LeAnn Rimes and ex-husband Dean Sheremet are clearly not on good terms, as a recent Twitter squabble between them proves.
LeAnn — who was married to Dean until she cheated on him with Eddie Cibrian, whom she is now married to — responded to a controversial tweet this weekend from one of her Twitter followers.
On November 23, one of LeAnn's Twitter followers wrote to her, "Remember the good old days when @leannrimes was just a chubby country bumpkin married to a gay dude? #neverforget." Included in the tweet was a throwback photo of LeAnn.
LeAnn responded with, "Hahahaha, I'm gonna choose to laugh at this."
However, LeAnn's response struck a nerve with Dean himself. "Laugh away — who's the bully now?" Dean tweeted at LeAnn on November 24.
"I don't do twitter wars, but I do hate ignorance," Dean continues. "Being gay isn't offensive, not standing up for the truth is. @NOH8Campaign @leannrimes."
In response to Dean's comments, one of LeAnn's Twitter followers tweeted that LeAnn was just laughing at the unflattering photo of herself, and LeAnn confirms this. "Exactly — dear lord," LeAnn says. "I was laughing at myself."
"Sad that he's a part of it," LeAnn said about Dean getting involved in the spat. "No, he's not gay, and there's nothing wrong it. I have always & will always support the community. ❤️" As you may know, LeAnn has helped with the NOH8 anti-bullying campaign in the past.
There is certainly no love lost between these two exes. And we'll presumably get to hear Dean address this situation on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville's podcast soon, as Brandi confirmed this weekend that he will be a guest in the near future.
Do you think Dean was right to call LeAnn out for her comment? Or do you think he misunderstood what she was laughing at?
