Carly Rose Sonenclar's family isn't happy with LeAnn Rimes, after the country crooner blamed Soneclar for the much-derided duet the two performed on 'X Factor.'

That's what happens when they let guest stars bring their own jug of vodka to the studio.

Well, that's just a guess. But there's been rampant speculation that Rimes had her nose in the hooch before the performance, after she stumbled around, leaned on the 13-year-old, and nearly forgot the words to her own song.

But what Carly Rose's mother is supposedly upset about is that Rimes' rep released a statement Wednesday saying Carly Rose was "nervous and had trouble hitting the right notes" when she sang "How Do I Live."

Rimes on Thursday insisted she was sober, but also said if things were awkward, it was only because, "I was trying to help this 13-year-old girl who was having some trouble with the song." Rimes later claimed she never made that quote, though TMZ claims the singer's rep had indeed provided the quote.

Somebody needs to get their stories straight ... and maybe have a sandwich while they're at it.

Carly Rose's mother and other relatives are saying they can't believe Rimes threw their daughter under the bus, and that Carly Rose was a pro and even out-performed Rimes at her own song.

Carly Rose wound up placing second on the show's finale on Thursday.
