When readers grew upset that LeAnn Rimes, who had recently been involved in an extramarital affair with actor Eddie Cibrian, graced the cover of Shape Magazine, editor Valerie Latona apologized calling the decision a, “terrible mistake”.
On Friday, the country singer responded to her confusion on the matter via Twitter.
“Just so all my fans know, I’m getting to the bottom of this. It’s the first I’ve heard of this. Shape is throwing me a party next week as a thank you and a congrats for being on their cover for the 3rd time. I find this very contradictory. I love you all!!” LeAnn wrote on her Twitter account on Friday.
Shortly afterwards, Valerie took back her words in LeAnn’s favor.
“I used the words of the few unhappy readers who wrote in. I stand by the fact that LeAnn’s story is compelling–and her courage and strength in the face of so much adversity is compelling. That is why I put her on the cover of Shape for what is now the third time,” Valerie told USA Today.
