LeAnn Rimes Reveals How a Bully Tried to Kill Her With a Knife

OMG 10

leann rimesYou may not agree with all the personal choices that LeAnn Rimes has made, but you can't help but pity the poor girl sometimes. The country crooner, who performed at the Anti-Bullying Benefit concert in L.A. on Monday night, recently revealed that she was mercilessly bullied during her childhood. It wasn't just pulling hair and name calling she was contending with. LeAnn says one particular brute actually tried to kill her.

Like many far too many other kids, she was a popular target of mean girls at her Dallas, Texas junior high. An over-achiever even then, her principal would post on the school bulletin about her various activities, which really irked a particular clique. They even egged her locker. Though that pales to what happened to her on the last day of school.

I had a girl bring a knife to school the last day of sixth grade and tried to kill me! Awesome. So, I'd say I was bullied a little.

Sad thing is, she's still dealing with that kind of menacing behavior today. Over the past couple of years, she has been attacked on Twitter and other forms of social media. At one point, things had gotten so bad for LeAnn, she underwent treatment for anxiety and stress. It's no wonder. That would adversely affect the self-esteem and emotional state of just about any woman. And now that we know of her history, it makes even more sense.

LeAnn must be one of the most bullied celebs in history. Usually reaching a certain level of fame protects you from that. But to be terrorized as a teen and again now as an adult, it's no wonder she has had such a hard time. Get this woman to Dr. Phil STAT!

Can you believe one of her classmates tried to kill her?

I think she's either lying or exaggerating the story. She loves to play the victim.

She broke her vows by cheating on her husband with another married man, and I'm supposed to feel sorry for her because she was bullied in junior high?

Well, then, allow me and millions of other men and women to rush right out and cheat on our spouses... after all, we were bullied in school, and, therefore, have no control over ourselves now.


Puh-lease. LeAnn's husband, Eddie's wife, and 2 little boys were horribly hurt, all because LeAnn is a perpetual victim. Nothing is ever her fault, and she *boo hoo* just can't get a handle on her anxiety after all the harm she's done.

Whatever. Tell her to take an anti-depressant/anxiety medication, honor vows she makes to the God she claims to worship, and stop trying to make the American public feel sorry for her. She's just not cute enough to get away with that crap.

Whatever no one really gives a damn about LeeAnn all we ever think about is her lying cheating ways...She is no victim but a class act at manipulation wish she would just shush and bow out no one would really miss her.

Do not believe it for a second. Shes a psycho that needs help.

She's the real bully if you ask me.

No, I don't believe some bully almost tried to kill her with a knife. If that was the case, there would be record of it, because you know this brat wouldn't let that person get away with it, even at 11 years old. She should be ashamed making a statement like this when we have children today committing suicide because of bullying. The kind of picking people endured in school 20-30 years ago is nothing at all like what is going on with kids in junior high today today. Shame on YOU LeAnn Rimes.
