In August, the country music singer got into an accident with another car that the police called a "very minor scrape between two vehicles." But less than a month later, Rimes had another accident. The paparazzi were on hand to document that one because, the singer claimed, it was their fault to begin with. She was leaving a store in Santa Monica when more than 20 photographers descended on her. She scrambled into the car and soon rear-ended another driver. "She was scared by all the paparazzi following her and did not look up for a second because she was looking out the side of her window, and she did tap into the back of the other car," a source close to her told People Magazine at the time. Perhaps she shouldn't have had that notorious affair with co-star Eddie Cibrian that put her back in the spotlight earlier that summer then.
