LeAnn Rimes Performs At Anti-Bullying Event
LeAnn Rimes has revealed that once in sixth grade one of her classmates started bullying her and "tried to kill" her.
The country singer recently performed at the Anti-Bullying Concert on July 1, thrown by the Friend Movement, which is an organization that exposes kids to anti-bullying messages through art and media. During an interview at the event she spoke about the incident when she was bullied:
"My 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," she tells Entertainment Tonight. "So, I had my locker egged, I had a girl bring a knife to school the last day of sixth grade and tried to kill me! Awesome. So, I'd say I was bullied a little."
While in elementary school Rimes had begun performing in Texas when she first started being bullied. To this day she says she still feels occasionally bullied, especially being in the limelight because of her career and also due to her highly publicized affair and divorce.
"Obviously we're underneath a microscope and in the spotlight all the time, but it's no reason to be able to pick apart someone the way that a lot of people do," she observes. "We're human . . . this is my job, and then I have my life. But I'm a human being in both of them - and I think people forget that a lot of times."
