Then and Now: LeAnn Rimes

LeAnn Rimes grew up in front of the cameras. She broke into the country music scene at 13! And, since 1996, she's more or less managed to stay in the spotlight thanks to her big voice, scandal-ridden love life, and now her prolific bikini photo posting on Twitter.

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian (Getty) Back in 2003, LeAnn was working on her eight studio album, had won two Grammys, and had just married backup dancer Dean Sheremet. All that and she had just turned 21!

LeAnn met Dean when he was chosen to dance at the 2001 Academy of Country Music Awards, which she hosted. Apparently she knew she wanted to marry him after their first date! A year later they tied the knot. But, their fairytale only lasted about seven years.

The two went through a messy divorce after LeAnn's scandalous affair with her Northern Lights co-star was revealed in 2009. To made a long, sordid story short, LeAnn and Eddie Cibrian both opted to divorce their spouses to be together, which caused no shortage of drama. LeAnn and Eddie then married in April 2011. More drama.

These days, LeAnn is working on new music -- her next album is due out in September -- and doing the newlyweds thing. She also relentlessly defends her weight by posting pictures of herself in a bikini, insisting she's "healthy" not too "gaunt" and "bony." The singer will celebrate her 29th birthday (and 16th year in the spotlight) on August 28.
