Cuban actor Eddie Cibrian has been making major headlines since his down low affair with country singer LeAnn Rimes was exposed by Us Weekly on its latest cover. Both actors are currently married to other people.
Rimes, 26, married back-up dancer Dean Sheremet, 28, when she was just 19-years-old. Eddie Cibrian, 35, was married in 2001 to model Brandi Glanville and has two sons with her, ages 5 and 23 months.
The magazine published images taken from a video security camera of Cibrian and Rimes cuddling over a romantic dinner date at Mosun in Laguna Beach, California on March 7. The two met while filming Northern Lights, a movie for Lifetime Television. "From the moment we rehearsed, LeAnn and Eddie honestly developed a really strong bond and a warm relationship," director Mike Robe told Us.
Rimes took to her website to talk directly with her fans, saying, "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." Hmm, it sounds suspiciously like she's already asking for forgiveness.
Update: Cibrian issued a statement to Access Hollywood denying any allegations of an extramarital affair, "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. It is a fabricated story that is using random snapshots as connective tissue to create a scandalous relationship."
Clearly LeAnn and Eddie had never discussed what they were going to do if they ever got caught, red handed, which is exactly what appears to have happened. Check out the video obtained by Us of the scandalous dinner date Rimes and Cibrian shared, they're kissing, holding hands and generally acting like way more than "just friends":
