Leann Rimes Claims a Bully Tried to Kill Her With a Knife in High School


Country singer LeAnn Rimes has spat out her latest exaggerated statement: she claims that a bully tried to kill her in high school and that the girl in question was even wielding a knife. While this incident might have taken place (questionable at best), it’s possible that the girl just wanted to freak LeAnn out. Anyway, she told ‘Entertainment Tonight’ that while her principal was very proud of her, other girls just weren’t happy about her early success and tried to get back at her by egging her locker:

“I used to perform around Dallas and Texas where I lived, a lot. My (school) principal would put something on the bulletin board if I was in the newspaper or something, and there was this clique of girls that did not like it. So, I had my locker egged, I had a girl bring a knife to school the last day of sixth grade and (she) tried to kill me!”

LeAnn performed at the Friend Movement’s Anti-Bullying Benefit Concert in Los Angeles and seemed to get quiet teary-eyed during her set. She told the crowd to never let bullies get the best of them and screamed “screw them!” during her time on stage. Anything for attention though, right?
