Sounds like LeAnn Rimes might have a bit more to worry about in terms of her privacy!
We previously reported how LeAnn is not only seeking treatment for stress and anxiety, but is also fighting off some Twitter haters in what’s bound to be a nasty legal battle!
Now, it seems if the lawsuit over the recorded phone call and Twitter bullying with Kimberly Smiley goes to court, ALL of LeAnn’s previous medical shiz may be put on display!
A source revealed:
"If LeAnn is suing Kimberly then she becomes an open book and her medical history can be relevant and admissible in court. So if she claims that Kimberly is causing her emotional distress, her lawyers can say, 'No, we want to look at your medical records because you could have been suffering anxiety for a lot of things before, which caused you to enter a rehab or a mental health institution.’ Your entire medical file becomes an open book when you choose to sue."
Oh shiz… hope she hasn’t been hiding anything TOO scandalous that she wouldn’t want leaking!
As far as the chances of LeAnn winning the invasion of privacy argument go?
Well, it’s not looking too good! Sounds like Rimes’ celeb status could prevent her from having a strong case, seeing as with being a public figure, it can come with the territory!
Dayum! This definitely could get messy!!
Perhaps LeAnn should focus on her treatment for now and then sort out this shiz later??
