Carly Rose's Family

LeAnn Rimes Threw This

Little Girl Under the Bus!

Carly Rose Sonenclar's family is royally pissed off at LeAnn Rimes for -- as they put it -- trashing their daughter's "X Factor" performance Wednesday night.

Sources connected with the family tell us ... the 13-year-old girl's mother is livid that Rimes would dare say Carly Rose was "nervous and had trouble hitting the right notes" when she sang "How Do I Live."
 
As you know ... Carly Rose did a duet of the song with Rimes on the show. People on social media went crazy after the performance, claiming Rimes was drunk.

TMZ broke the story ... Rimes insists she was sober, but says if things were awkward, it was only because, "I was trying to help this 13-year-old girl who was having some trouble with the song."  Rimes later claimed she never gave a quote, but we can tell you ... her rep specifically gave us the quote and told us we could use it.

Carly Rose's mother and other relatives are telling people they can't believe LeAnn threw their daughter under the bus, and that it was clear -- Carly Rose was a pro and even out-performed LeAnn at her own song.

If LeAnn did say that, then Carly's family has a right to be ticked. Carly was on the show every week and did amazingly well for such a young girl. She never needed "help" before. I thought LeAnn ruined the song. I don't know if LeAnn cost Carly the win since Tate and she were always so very close in the voting but she sure didn't HELP Carly! LeAnn needs to get out of the spotlight and into some sort of facility for far longer than 30 days to deal with her issues, IMO.

Leanne is a piece of work, everyone knows it. When Eddie leaves her she is going to totally implode. Brandi will be loving it!

PLEASE. I BELIEVE SHE IS HIGH ON PILLS. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST ARROGANT AND SELF CENTERED WOMAN IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY. SHE IS JUST A STUDIO CREATION. LEE ANN RIMES SAID AND I QUOTE "JANIS JOPLIN WAS NOT THAT GREAT OF A SINGER!" THEN LEE ANN RUINED HER SONG SUMMERTIME. SORRY, LEE ANN. YOU HAVE A BUTTER BALL VOICE AND OVER SING ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO DUETS. YOU ARE NOT A TRUE ARTIST!

Saw this coming. I am not sure why they let teenagers as young as 13 on the show. Remember Rachel Crowe last year. As for LeAnn, she was a mess, but Carly Rose held her own. With Tate crying about having a job to go back to week after week, I think it was a pity vote.
