After MIKOH Swimwear posted an interview with and photos of a bikini-clad LeAnn Rimes on their website, rumors began to swirl that the controversially-skinny country singer would be the brand’s new spokesmodel. However, E! News reports that those speculations are false.
“Some other sites are mentioning this is an ad campaign, but it’s not,” a MIKOH representative told E! News. “She was not hired as a model or spokesperson for the Mikoh brand, so there is no modeling job to mention.”
Although an ad campaign featuring the often-criticized Rimes would get MIKOH attention, the shots that they ran were actually just vacation photos that Rimes’s husband, Eddie Cibrian, took on a recent trip.
Rimes, who performed at Joe’s Bar in Chicago as part of a Lifting Lives benefit concert yesterday, still seems to have a good relationship with the company. She even tweeted at MIKOH Swimwear earlier today.
What do you think? Would Rimes make a good swimwear model, or are you happy the rumors aren’t true? Share your thoughts with us by posting in the comments section below!
