LeAnn Rimes is defending her bikini body on Twitter following fan concern that she is "scary skinny."
The 28-year-old country singer raised eyebrows after posting photos of her posing in a bikini on Sunday.
One of Rimes' followers commented on the photos, saying: "Whoa, you're scary skinny! Sorry don't mean to offend but that's a lot of bones showing through skin."
The country singer replied: "Those are called abs, not bones, love," adding later, "This is my body, and I can promise you I'm a healthy girl. I'm just lean. Thanks for your concern, but no need to be."
Rimes got into a similar argument in March after debuting a significantly slimmed-down figure.
At the time, Rimes wrote on her Twitter page: "I am completely healthy! If people only saw how much I ate."
The singer wrote back to another fan in March when asked if she saw a tabloid article about her weight saying: "I don't care about the dumb articles. I know how healthy I am. Maybe those people should start taking care of themselves...inside and out."
Rimes later told another fan: "I take care of myself, eat what I want without putting crap into my body and am at a healthy weight."
Back in September, Rimes graced the cover of Shape magazine and talked about her workout habits, saying: "Going to the gym and punching out some of my aggression on a pair of mitts has been a lifesaver. Sometimes I felt so depressed I didn't want to get out of bed, so just getting to the gym - even for a few minutes - was a big accomplishment. "
On April 22, Rimes married actor Eddie Cibrian in a private ceremony. Rimes and Cibrian went public with their romance back in 2009 after falling in love on the set of the Lifetime movie, "Northern Lights." At the time, Cibrian was still married to Brandi Glanville while Rimes was married to Dean Sheremet. Rimes and Sheremet divorced in June 2010 while Cibrian and Glanville finalized their divorce in October 2010.
