LeAnn Rimes has a message for fans who are tired of seeing shots of her and beau Eddie Cibrian getting it on in public: Get over it!

"Since when is kissing your boyfriend a crime?!" she Twittered Tuesday. "Who's right was it to take pics of us in a private moment and display them for judgement?! I love my fans, the people who know my heart and stick beside me."

Rimes, 27, and Cibrian, 36 -- who had an affair last year while shooting a Lifetime movie -- packed on the PDA over the 4th of July while vacationing at the Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara, Calif., with Cibrian's sons, Jake, 3, and Mason, 7.

In one shot, she even straddles Cibrian while one of his boys drinks a bottle of water next to them. See more pics of the couple's weekend here.

Rimes insists the boy probably didn't mind.

"So sweet when a 3 year old climbs in bed and says "why are you so pretty!" what a doll he is, so kind :)" she Twittered the other day. "It's amazing the things kids say."
