LeAnn Rimes & Jake Cibrian: Malibu Shoppers

Singer LeAnn Rimes and her step-son Jake Cibrian, 5, were seen shopping together in Malibu, Calif. on Friday (May 4). Big brother Mason, 8, was not with the pair on their Friday outing.

According to Fox News, it seems there has been some speculation that LeAnn is in cahoots with the paparazzi, given all the swimsuit shots that have been circulating throughout the media the past few months or so. She has recently been photographed in teeny bikinis frolicking on the beaches in Mexico, Maui and Malibu. As a result, certain industry insiders are speculating that these pics aren’t paparazzi shots at all but that LeAnn is actually tipping off the photographers to stage the shots.

Making reference to a recent batch of photos of Leann and her husband Eddie Cibrian on a beach in Cabo San Lucas, one photo editor comments that “those photographs came into all the magazines and websites fully captioned and saying, ‘LeeAnn Rimes on a trip to renew her vows.’ There is no vow renewing in those pictures. There is no way the paps would have known she was doing that unless she specifically told them.”

“Plus the paps just don’t get access like that in Cabo,” the editor adds. “They can’t get close enough to the celebrities without permission to get the quality of those photos. They were right next to her. There was no long lens. This was not intrusive in any way. This was a photo shoot.”
