The country music world seems to be its own little society within the much larger realm of Hollywood, and while many do not automatically think of country music stars when they think of Hollywood scandals, there have been quite a few. There are of course cheating scandals that rock every facet of the entertainment, but then there are run-ins with the law and even murder, proving that country music is not all about sunshine, drinking beer and driving a truck, although sometimes scandals come from drinking beer and then driving a truck.
10. LeAnn Rimes
LeAnn Rimes has been embroiled in scandals a few times since starting her career as a country music singer when she was only a child. At 17, drama hit when she ended up in a nasty legal and financial dispute with her own dad who she said owed her more than $7 million. Of course, that was nothing compared to the scandal that erupted around her when she had an affair with Eddie Cibrian after meeting on the set of a 2009 Hallmark movie, Northern Lights. The relationship ended both of their marriages and Rimes has continued to anger people by flaunting her relationship with Cibrian.Helga Esteb / Shutterstock.com
