LeAnn Rimes’ First Husband Talks Affair

    October 11, 2013

In an interview with Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush, LeAnn Rimes’ first husband Dean Sheremet said he learned about the singer’s extramarital affair with actor Eddie Cibrian in 2009 when she called to tell Sheremet that US Weekly “may or may not have a picture of me and Eddie kissing.”

At the time Rimes, who married Sheremet in 2002, and Cibrian were costarring in Northern Lights, a Lifetime movie based on a novel by Nora Roberts. Cibrian was married to television personality and former model Brandi Glanville.

Rimes and Cibrian subsequently divorced their respective spouses and were married in April of 2011.

Sheremet, who remarried shortly after Rimes tied the knot with Cibrian, claims to have no hard feelings toward his ex-wife: “I have no animosity toward her. I have nothing but love for her, and I really wish her the best. But we don’t really talk that much. There’s not really a need to. I don’t really know what we would talk about.”

In fact, he appears to have turned lemons into lemonade. When Sheremet and Rimes met, he was her back-up dancer and he served as her manager during their marriage. But now he’s a chef and food blogger, and he said of his experience with Rimes: “it’s the reason that I get to do awesome cooking segments. Whatever it is that gets me in the door is fine.”

Unfortunately, Glanville doesn’t have the same sanguine feelings toward her ex and his new wife. She has engaged Rimes in highly publicized Twitter feuds, and continues to rant about Rimes and her relationship with Cibrian and Glanville’s sons Mason and Jake.

Rimes, who is known to be an avid Twitter user, posted the following update on Friday morning, which some believe alludes to Sheremet’s Access Hollywood interview:
