While most celebrities complain about having their picture taken by paparazzi, there may be a good reason why LeAnn Rimes is usually "caught" smiling in those candid pics. Several gossip websites, including Perez Hilton and Radar Online, are claiming the singer tips off photographers to her whereabouts, especially when she's wearing a bikini and when she's on a happy outing with husband Eddie Cibrian and his two sons.

"LeAnn wants good pictures out there," a so-called "source" tells Radar Online. "She wants to look good and she wants people to see how she looks happy with Eddie, that's why she does that."

The website further reports that the "Borrowed" singer has been making deals with paparazzi for years, tipping them off in exchange for promises to only sell flattering pictures. See a report on the allegations below.

Perhaps 2013 will be the year that the media focus goes back to LeAnn's music. The Grammy winner will release her new album, Spitfire, on April 30. Watch her perform a song from the album that was inspired by the demise of her first marriage here.
