LeAnn Rimes’ invasion of privacy lawsuit dismissed

Leanne Rimes has lost an invasion of privacy lawsuit she filed against two women who allegedly recorded a phone call with the star. The singer sued California residents Kimberly and Lexi Smiley last August (12), claiming they engaged in a campaign to trash her when she hooked up with their friend Brandi Glanville’s then-husband Eddie Cibrian, who is now married to Rimes.
Rimes insisted the Smileys secretly recorded a phone chat she had with Kimberly earlier in 2012 – and then released out-of-context excerpts that made Rimes seem “crazy and delusional”.
The Blue hitmaker said the recording damaged her reputation and relationships, as well as causing her emotional distress.
However, a Los Angeles judge has dismissed her suit, therefore preventing Rimes from re-filing the case.
The attorney representing the Smileys tells Billboard.com that the “two sides resolved their differences and he could not comment further.”
