LeAnn Rimes fires back after 'X Factor' drunk-duet accusations

LeAnn Rimes fired back via Twitter on Thursday after online chatter overnight and early in the day accused her of being drunk Wednesday night during a duet with 13-year-old contestant Carly Rose Sonenclar on "The X Factor." "In my 18 years of performing, I have never been anything but professional onstage. It is a shame that gossip and lies are overshadowing the performance of Carly, a very talented young girl," Rimes wrote via TwitLonger. "And while I have not given any media outlet a quote, if you want one, here it is: 'It was an amazing opportunity to share this experience with Carly and I know I'll be watching for her to win tonight.'"
