Did LeeAnn Rimes Have an Affair?

UPDATE: LeAnn Rimes updated her official Web site in response to reports of an alleged affair between herself and actor Eddie Cibrian.

“This is a difficult time for me and my loved ones, but I appreciate all your continued support. I would like to assure all of you that this is a place for you to hear things directly from me and as you all know, not everything in our lives is always black and white,” she wrote.

Rimes also expressed a similar sentiment in an appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly this morning.

“Everything’s great – there’s rumors all the time,” she said. “Things pass, life happens. You know, everything people read is not … as easy as black and white. That’s what it is. I let it roll off my back most of the time.”

As for Rimes’ husband of seven years, Dean Sheremet, he appears to be standing by his wife.

He TwitteredI love my wife!!!” today.


Country music star and actress LeAnn Rimes is alleged to have had an affair with a co-star from an upcoming Lifetime Television movie.

Rimes, who has been married to her former backup dancer Dean Sheremet for seven years, was reportedly romanced by co-star Eddie Cibrian (a soap opera and television actor) while filming Northern Lights for Lifetime, according to Us.

Us has photos taken from security camera footage of a couple that appears to be Rimes and Cibrian kissing at a dinner table at Mosun in Laguna Beach, California on March 7.

The magazine is also alleging that the actors spent three hours together at the Malibu Beach Inn on March 14.

The film airs on March 21, and director Mike Robe commented on the actors’ closeness before word of the alleged affair got out.

“From the moment we rehearsed, LeAnn and Eddie honestly developed a really strong bond and a warm relationship,” he noted.

Cibrian is also married, to model Brandi Glanville. They have two sons, ages 5 and 23 months.

Both actors’ representatives declined to comment.
