LeAnn Rimes Is Still Suing That Stranger She Berated for Being Mean to Her on the Internet

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, LeAnn Rimes took issue with a teacher named Kim Smiley, who was Team Brandi Glanville on Twitter.

Never one to let a stranger on the internet get away with saying mean things about her, Rimes actually called Smiley (yes, on the phone) and berated her, a call that Smiley recorded and is now being sued for on the grounds that Rimes’ privacy was breached.

Since the suit was filed, both women have offered each other settlements (via lawyer) — but so far, that hasn’t worked out so well for either party.

Rimes’ counsel offered the first olive branch in the civil case, with a source telling Radar Online, “LeAnn proposed a settlement basically forcing Kim and [her daughter] Lexi to apologize to LeAnn,” but Smiley’s lawyers didn’t like the Draconion tactics and refused. Specifically because Rimes wanted Smiley to admit she egged others online into attacking her as well.

The counter-settlement offered by Smiley’s team was also rejected by Rimes’ camp because they believed it didn’t offer Rimes’ anything she felt she was owed. Apparently she’s not after money, but she’s insisting on an apology — and Smiley isn’t willing to cough one up.

Smiley, a mother of six, is also facing criminal charges — when it comes to recording phone calls, California is a two-party state, meaning both sides of the call have to agree it’s okay to tape it. Since LeAnn was taped without her knowledge, she filed charges with the Sheriff’s office recommending the District Attorney prosecute Smiley.

If you find all this patently absurd, no — you’re not alone. In fact, some might even call it pathetic.
