LeAnn Rimes seems to always get herself into trouble on Twitter, even though she didn’t actually start it this time.
But her comments over the tweet from her fan didn’t make Dean Sheremet very happy.
This time, the 31-year-old country star got into an argument with ex-husband Dean Sheremet over a comment over her “gay” ex-husband.
Rimes’ follower Da Giggle Factory tweeted, “Remember the good old days when @leannrimes was just a chubby country bumpkin married to a gay dude?” The fan included a photo of LeAnn when she was fuller figured.

LeAnn Rimes replied, “@DaGiggleFactory hahahaha I’m gonna choose to laugh at this.”
Sheremet did not take the response well, writing “Laugh away-Who’s the bully now?” He added, “I don’t do twitter wars, but I do hate ignorance. Being gay isn’t offensive, not standing up for the truth is. @NOH*Campaign @Leannrimes.”
A Twitter follower named Michelle defended Rimes, writing “@Deansheremet @NOH8Campaign @leannrimes who said it was offensive? Did you see the pic attached to the tweet? Nothing to do w dean.”
The singer appreciated her fan’s support, tweeting, “Exactly dear lord. I was laughing at myself.”
She adds, “@shellipep @Deansheremet @NOH8Campaign no he’s not gay and there’s nothing wrong it. I have always & will always support the community.”
Rimes was married to Sheremet when she filmed “Northern Lights” and met Eddie Cibrian. They began an affair and divorced their spouses to be together.
