Maybe there is such a thing as oversharing.
Country singer LeAnn Rimes has announced that she's taking time off from Twitter after fans chastised her over a set of photographs that showed the 27-year-old getting steamy with boyfriend Eddie Cibrian as one of his young sons sat just inches away.
"Since when is kissing your boyfriend a crime?!" the divorced star - who had an affair with Cibrian, 36, while filming a 2009 Lifetime movie - tweeted July 6. "Who's right was it to take pics of us in a private moment and display them for judgement?!"
Later that day, Rimes wrote that she was trying so hard to live a compassionate life, and abandoning Twitter was apparently the first step.
"It's unhealthy for me and my family to have to read negative comments from people who's opinions have no bearing on my life," she tweeted the next day. "I love my fans so very much and will return one day soon."
No reaction yet from Rimes' ex, Dean Sheremet, though he did have something to say when she publicly apologized for her infidelity in People magazine last month. "Don't apologies normally carry regret for your actions?" he tweeted.
