LeAnn Rimes has emotional distress from the distribution of an unauthorized phone call.
According to the report filed, the Smileys have lashed out at Rimes due to an alleged cheating scandal which ended Brandi Gianville‘s marriage to Rimes’ current husband Eddie Cibrian.
The two are believed to be supporters of Gianville.
Audio claims Rimes was “vindictive” towards a bullying Gianville.
The suit claims these “out-of-context” excerpts feature Rimes in a false and negative light, painting Rimes as “crazy and delusional.” The singer claims the distribution ultimately contributed to the her recent check-in to a treatment facility for stress management.
Rimes is seeking a trial by jury and could be granted $5000 or three times the amount of actual damages.
