Eddie Cibrian: ‘No Truth’ to LeAnn Rimes Affair

Despite the chemistry playing out in the above photos (stills from Lifetime’s forthcoming Northern Lights), actor Eddie Cibrian denies a reported affair with country singer LeAnn Rimes.

“Other than being friends and two actors who were romantically intertwined in a movie-for-television we filmed last fall, there is no truth to the reporting initiated by US Magazine,” Cibrian said in a statement.

Us Weekly’s latest cover decries a sultry affair with alleged photographic evidence that Rimes, married to dancer Dean Sheremet for seven years, has been hooking up with Cibrian.

“It is a fabricated story that is using random snapshots as connective tissue to create a scandalous relationship.”

The snapshots in question are from a Laguna Beach, Ca. restaurant, which reveal a couple that resembles the pair dining and kissing on March 7.

Northern Lights is set to premiere March 21 on Lifetime.
