LeAnn Rimes Defends Her New Scary-Skinny Frame: 'I Know How Healthy I Am!'

We don’t care what you say, LeAnn — we’re worried about you! These photos of you are shocking!

It’s unbelievable how different LeAnn Rimes looks now than she did six months ago. Where she once looked perfectly healthy, now the 28-year-old performer’s legs look like tooth picks and her arms look skeletal…and not in a good way. But before you send her a concerned tweet, be warned: She doesn’t want to hear it! “I know how healthy I am,” she tweeted March 15. “Maybe those people should start taking care of themselves…inside and out.”

“Maybe it’s time for a nude pic so peeps can see how I look nowhere near what these stupid pics are trying to make me look like, LOL,” she continued. “I’m talking about the evil comments and the judging and rag mags.”

We feel badly LeAnn feels judged! If anything, she should know her fans are concerned about her and want her to be okay. We loved her perfectly svelte figure just as it was before…she doesn’t need to disappear on us. HollywoodLife.com consulted with nutritionist, chef and author of Skinny Chicks Don’t Eat Salads, Christine Avanti, who told us LeAnn is endangering her health if she drops any more weight.

“My guess is that she weighed 120 before and is now at 105 or lower,” Avanti said about LeAnn’s 5’5″ frame. “Stress can cause weight loss, extreme dieting can cause weight loss and thyroid issues can cause weight loss or weight gain. It’s hard to tell. I will say that she is at the border line of too thin verses healthy. Hopefully, she will not continue to lose anymore weight.”

Los Angeles Bariatric Surgeon, Dr. Carson Liu agrees with Avanti and said LeAnn’s weight loss doesn’t look safe.

“Although I have never treated LeAnn, I think she looks unhealthy,” he said. “She looks like she has gone on an extreme self-induced diet. Plus, she’s probably not exercising much, as she also has muscle wasting.”

LeAnn has had quite the year. After meeting her now-fiance, Eddie Cibrian, on the set of the Lifetime movie, Northern Lights, in 2009, LeAnn divorced her husband and quickly moved on. Meanwhile, Eddie divorced his wife, Brandi Glanville, and proposed to LeAnn within months. Now, LeAnn is playing step mom to Eddie’s two children, planning a wedding AND managing her career at the same time. That’s enough to stress anyone out.
