Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes were both married to others when they met and had an affair. Whilst both subsequently divorced their resentful spouses, their own union continues on.
Both Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes are cheaters. And so, perhaps, they deserve each other. But both of them also seem very happy in all those photos you can find of them together online.
They met on the set of the Lifetime movie Northern Lights and reportedly had some serious chemistry going on. They took it off set and embarked on a not-so-secret affair that was first published in 2009.
It was a shock to LeAnn’s ex-husband Dean Sheremet, with whom she was still married at the time. They had had their problems, admitted Dean in March this year. They had married very young, he was 21 and she was 19, already a superstar. Dean said he put all his own dreams on hold and poured all his creative energy into LeAnn’s career.
He conceded that their romantic relationship had become indistinguishable from the business relationship and that he hadn’t known where to draw the line anymore. But because they continued to be successful and LeAnn continued to be totally reliant on him, he hadn’t imagined that she could be looking for something more.
When she found it in Eddie, Dean didn’t take it too well. He felt humiliated and resentful. Even now he thinks that divorcing him was LeAnn’s “dumbest mistake” when it came to her career, because she hasn’t had another hit since she was with him.
Dean also believes that the country singer is wasting her talents by pursuing fame the way she does, which takes her away from making music and for stupid reality TV shows instead. But he is also of the opinion that LeAnn only thrives on the admiration of others, which can hardly be surprising given that she’s been in the business since the age of 12 and has known little else.
On the other hand there was Eddie, who cheated on his then-wife Brandi Glanville, who is also the mother of his two sons and would later become a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star. She was thrown into self-doubt bordering on an existential crisis when she found out about her husband’s affair.
Sadly Brandi seemed to have only looked at her appearance, wondering if she wasn’t pretty, blonde, skinny or blue-eyed enough. But those things are shallow and whatever her problems with Eddie might have been, they can’t have been about her looks. Whilst she is a few years older than LeAnn Rimes, they fall very much into the same category where type is concerned.
Her subsequent divorce from Eddie, which was finalized in 2010, was not pleasant either and she only reluctantly agreed to shared custody with Eddie, mostly for the benefit of the boys. But she bears a lot of resentment towards LeAnn, with whom she is known to have had several spats on Twitter.
Eddie and LeAnn meanwhile never returned to their spouses and both got a divorce, all the while continuing their relationship. And whatever you may think of those two, they do seem perfect for each other and are always glowing with happiness.
But given that they have both cheated their way into their relationship, which in 2011 became a marriage, they have been pursued by relentless divorce rumours.
Thus far none of those rumours have proven true.
That doesn’t mean, however, that the rumours that are allegedly causing the divorce, aren’t true. Eddie has been said to have cheated with other women, whilst LeAnn is apparently so jealous that she installed surveillance at their shared home for the times she is away by herself.
Gossip Cop debunked those rumours, but there are others.
It’s been reported the LeAnn wants a child with Eddie, who’s apparently not interested. She doesn’t have children yet and she allegedly wants something that would bind the two together for life. A child would certainly do that.
Whatever the truth may be, for now the couple is holding strong and a divorce is not yet visible along the horizon. Some say it is inevitable though, which is likely due to the way these two came together to begin with.
