Country music star Leann Rimes has lashed out at speculation she is suffering from an eating disorder following online criticisms of her skinny frame.
The hitmaker's tiny figure has seemingly got even smaller in recent weeks, with new photos of the singer prompting fans to flood her Twitter page with concerned messages.
However, Rimes has spoken out to ensure followers she is not ill and that the snaps are simply not doing her body justice.
On her Twitter page, she writes,
"I don't care about the dumb articles. I know how healthy I am. 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 (laugh out loud)."
And the star took time to remind fans how much she likes food, by repeatedly referencing snacks she was eating throughout the day.
"Just had some kind of doughnut hazelnut cream thingy for dessert at lunch!"
