    Country cutie LeAnn Rimes is becoming an expert at getting a rise out of her 130,000+ Twitter followers.

    On March 29, the seriously thin singer, who is currently on her honeymoon in Mexico with Eddie Cibrian, tweeted a series of provocative photos of herself in a blue string bikini, with her ribs clearly visible and hip bones protruding.

    Naturally, her legion of Twitter followers chimed in, concerned about shrinking figure, including @AJPatterson1987 who tweeted, “Whoa, you’re scary skinny! Sorry don’t mean to offend but that’s a lot of bones showing through skin…”

    Rimes defensively tweeted back: “Those are called abs not bones love,” adding after the fan once again voiced her concern, “Thx but this is my body and I can promise you I’m a healthy girl. I’m just lean. Thx for your concern but no need to be.”

    Later, @AJPatterson1987 tweeted to another fan, “Love her and all but I agree, that’s not a good image to project & she’s in severe denial if she thinks that’s muscle!”

    This isn’t the first time Rimes has caused alarm by posting bikini shots.

    In April she took a photograph of her lower half in a yellow bikini with the caption, “First sun!!!!! SPRING!!!”

    After fans tweeted their concern, Rimes shot back with a series of tweets, including, “you don’t know me, you have NO idea what I weigh or eat, so why should you have any opinion about my weight?”

    Rimes defensively added, “I own that I am healthy and take dang goof care of my body, that’s what I own,” and finally signed off with, “Dear lord! I do not work out too much nor do I starve myself. I’m so over this and moving on.”
