Bikini-Clad LeAnn Rimes Promises: "I'm a Healthy Girl"

After drawing flak for looking "scary skinny" in a bikini pic on Twitter, the singer says she's "just lean"

Even when she's honeymooning in Mexico, LeAnn Rimes can't seem to escape criticsim for her skinny bod.

During her recent south-of-the-border jaunt with new husband Eddie Cibrian, the 28-year-old singer tweeted a picture of herself in a bikini, saying how much she "loved wearing" it. In response, Rimes received unexpected criticism from one of her Twitter followers. "Whoa, you're scary skinny!" the follower wrote. "Sorry don't mean to offend but that's a lot of bones showing through skin."

Rimes retorted, "Those are called abs not bones, love." She then added, "This is my body, and I can promise you I'm a healthy girl. I'm just lean."

Rimes' drastic weight loss has been the subject of intense media and fan scrutiny. In March, the singer used her Twitter feed to defend herself from comments that she was "super skinny." In early April, she expressed her growing frustration with continuing media obsession with her weight, tweeting, "Dear lord! I do not workout too much nor do I starve myself. I'm so over this and moving on."

Whatever the case may be, Rimes' body transformation has been drastic, fueling rumors that she is anorexic. To top it all off, so to speak, there's also been speculation that Rimes has gotten breast implants.

LeAnn has tried to be honest about her life, even about her affair with Eddie Cibrian, and has done her best to explain her choices -- and we certainly hope that she is healthy. That said, Rimes' weight loss is apparent, and her defensive attitude about her body hasn't helped. Why post a photo of yourself on your Twitter feed if you want to "move on" from the public outcry that you are too skinny?
