LeAnn Rimes needs to stop focusing on public image to win cyber-bullying court case

LeAnn Rimes needs to keep quiet if she wants to win her cyber-bullying court case, according to an expert in crisis management.

The country music star, who sang the Coyote Ugly soundtrack song ‘Can't Fight the Moonlight’ and has been in a bikini ever since, is currently embroiled in a lawsuit with a teacher from California.

LeAnn Rimes admitted herself into a rehab facility last month to help with her anxiety and stress issues, claiming cyber-bullying as the reason.

And she’s now speaking to People magazine from her medical centre, in a move that could be bad for her career, a crisis management expert told

"Going into any kind of treatment is a serious matter; you are supposed to focus on yourself not on your public image" says Michael Bilello.

The 30-year-old is married to the hot dimply one from Sunset Beach (mmm Cole), who expressed support for his wife when she checked into rehab.

"My wife is the most remarkable and courageous woman I know”, he said. “I am so proud of her for having the strength to finally take some time for herself. I will be with her every step of the way."

LeAnn checked into rehab day after her 30th birthday and is still using Twitter, which is now a weird mix of horoscopes and links to a barely used Twitter account.
