According to the latest Hollywood celebrity gossip, LEANN RIMES has issued another statement regarding her talked about performance on “The X Factor” and admitted that she was trying to “help” CARLY ROSE SONENCLAR from ruining her song.

LeAnn Rimes tried to defend her seemingly drunken performance again during her duet with the 13-year-old finalist Carly Rose Sonenclar on”The X Factor.”

As previously reported, the troubled singer was adamant that she was “professional” as usual when she took the stage with Sonenclar, slamming speculations that she had been drinking backstage.

And as it turns out, her rep already talked to TMZ before she even made a statement on her Twitter (in which she claimed she never issued one to the media), saying:

“[LeAnn] was trying to help this 13-year-old girl who was having some trouble with the song.”

Two things—one, she sort of insulted Sonenclar‘s performance, and two, the country singer has admitted that her performance was pretty unusual. It also seemed like she was just trying not to make her first statement sound like a diss towards Sonenclar.

Nonetheless, Rimes has made it clear that she wants the young finalist to win.

What do you think of LeAnn‘s first statement?
