A radio DJ just compared LeAnn Rimes to the Kardashians for one sour reason

You could say that the relationship between country star LeAnn Rimes and Texas DJ and radio personality Billy Mack Jr. has turned well — “Blue.”

On April 8, LeAnn held a concert at Forth Worth, Texas-based honky-tonk, Billy Bob’s Texas. While it wasn’t an entirely sold-out show, two members in attendance were Billy Jr. and his father, country great Billy Mack.

It was “Big Mack” Billy who penned LeAnn’s 2006 breakthrough-hit “Blue.” As for his son, well, he seems to have some beef with the blonde.

After feeling like she snubbed his father before playing her set at the venue, Billy Jr. took to social media to fire shots at LeAnn. According to PopDust, Billy Jr. wrote via Twitter, “So funny @leannrimes had the lowest attendance @BillyBobsTexas and still acts like a Diva. What a shame. Go back to LA. #Sellout #Hasbeen”

He then went into great detail on Facebook claiming that the songstress lacked “humility” and displayed a “Kardashian” attitude.


However, it didn’t take long for LeAnn to get down to the bottom of the whole mess. According to a rep, US Weekly reported that the “Can’t Fight the Moonlight” singer had no idea why Billy Jr. made such sour comments, adding that LeAnn thanked Billy for writing “Blue” before she sang it and also tried to meet up with them both before and after her show.

Although, Billy Jr. has since deleted his rant, he did leave one last word, or should we say nine. On Twitter he wrote, “Usually don’t rant, but it’s the truth. Stay humble.”
