Courtney Love and LeAnn Rimes might not seem like the most likely of friends, but apparently the two are close enough for the rocker to say, "If you f**k with her, you f**k with me."
Earlier this week, Matchbox Twenty frontman Rob Thomas tweeted that anyone who gives Rimes a hard time should be "embarrassed." Then on Thursday, Love chimed in and defended Rimes against the haters with a no-so-subtle tweet.

The country singer responded, saying she loves them both.
It is unclear if either Love or Thomas has any idea that Rimes has an ongoing feud with reality TV star Brandi Glanville. The feud between Rimes and Glanville reignited on Mother's Day and sizzled Monday when Glanville told Rimes to "mind her own business" when it comes to issues involving Glanville's ex-husband, Eddie Cibrian, and their children, E! News notes.
In an apparent attempt to rise above the drama, Rimes tweeted Monday that she is over the pettiness (which may have been why Thomas offered his support in the first place).
Name calling and twitter rants are so 2012. Music and truth is so 2013. #spitfirejune4

Tension between the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star and Rimes developed back in 2009 when Rimes and Cibrian (Glanville's husband at the time) had an affair. To this day, Rimes insists she is sorry for how the affair played out.
"I've definitely asked for forgiveness on a daily basis," the 30-year-old told "Entertainment Tonight" Wednesday. "We are human beings who are going to sin and make mistakes, and if you have that connection, for me, is something that I feel is bigger than me, it's not something that's unusual to do."
"I feel like so many people have written the story that they think will sell a magazine," she added, "or the story that they want to believe, but it's so 180 of what has been written."
