The teacher being sued by LeAnn Rimes for recording a phone call without the singer’s permission has told the media that she will not settle the lawsuit. She has also vowed that LeAnn is not going to like the information that will be revealed during the proceedings.
In an intimate new interview, Kim Smiley said she had considered the possibility of trying to settle the lawsuit and then rejected the idea.
“My husband and I talked (about settling the suit) and we both feel that it’s important to clear our names. If it was just about recording the call, that’d be different, but she’s claiming harassment, and that I caused her to go to ‘rehab,’” Smiley stated.
Rimes will be in for some surprises in litigation claims Smiley, who adds that one high-powered lawyer she spoke to said that Rimes “has no case, as did all of the other attorneys I spoke with. They said she’s not going to like or want what’s going to come out.”
But Rimes does not seem concerned about that whatsoever!
“She’s obviously decided to go ahead with the lawsuit and if she was worried about what was going to come out she wouldn’t have filed the lawsuit,” said a source close to Rimes.
