In the wake of the news of his divorce from estranged wife Brandi Glanville, which broke earlier this week, Eddie Cibrian is speaking out.
“From the outset I have made a conscious decision to try and keep this matter private and not discuss it in the press,” the actor said in a statement to Access Hollywood. “While my wife and I are dissolving our marriage, we will work together to parent our two children.”
It’s his kids, he added, who are his main priority.
“I love my boys very much. I want only the best for them and am committed to being a devoted father,” he continued.
And Eddie, who hadn’t said much on the matter since reports of an alleged affair with Lifetime “Northern Lights” co-star LeAnn Rimes broke in March, said he will continue to stay quiet.
“I will continue to be respectful and sensitive to this issue by not doing interviews about this ongoing private matter,” he said. “I wish everyone would do the same.”
As previously reported by AccessHollywood.com, Eddie filed for divorce from Brandi on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences.
Eddie was spotted with LeAnn in recent days on a golf course in Valencia, Calif., and taking in a Kings of Leon concert in Los Angeles.
Reports that LeAnn had separated from her spouse, husband Dean Sheremet, broke in July. In March, LeAnn and Eddie denied relationship rumors.
