LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Eddie Cibrian has shot down reports that he had an alleged affair with his “Northern Lights” co-star, 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,” Eddie said in a statement to Access Hollywood on Wednesday. “It is a fabricated story that is using random snapshots as connective tissue to create a scandalous relationship.”
Earlier in the day, a rep for the actor told Access that Us Weekly’s reports of a steamy tryst, which broke Tuesday, were “absolutely NOT true.”
And LeAnn also took to her blog on Wednesday to comment on the report, noting that “not everything in our lives is black and white.”
The two, who are both married, play lovers in the Lifetime original movie “Northern Lights.” The film premieres on March 21.
