LeAnn Rimes' bikini photo has sparked a Twitter debate over how skinny is too skinny. The newlywed and her Internet followers strongly disagree.

When Leann Rimes and her Twitter followers look at this bikini photo they see two different things. She sees a hot bod in great shape, they see a star who has reached the level of 'scary skinny.'

The debate started over the weekend when LeAnn Rimes' bikini photo hit Twitter with an unanticipated result. The newlywed, on her honeymoon in Mexico with new husband Eddie Cibrian, intended to show off her bikini and give thanks to the company who gave it to her.

In reaction to the picture one follower wrote, "Whoa, you're scary skinny! Sorry don't mean to offend but that's a lot of bones showing through skin."

"Those are called abs not bones, love," LeAnn shot back.

The follower returned, "Maybe it's just the pic, it just looks to me like your hip bones were protruding. Again didn't mean to offend, I am a big fan x." To which LeAnn Rimes replied, "Thx but this is my body and I can promise you I'm a healthy girl. I'm just lean. Thx for your concern but no need too [sic] be."

Yet another follower (certainly not a friend) chimed in on the bikini photo debate with, "Hmmm... if by healthy you mean implants."

Harsh! LeAnn Rimes' bikini photo is just the latest in a debate over the singer's weight in recent months, yet none have been quite so abrupt about the subject as these Twitter followers have been.

What do you think of LeAnn Rimes' bikini photo? Scary skinny or healthy girl?
