LeAnn Rimes took to her blog on Wednesday to reach out to fans in the wake of a report that the singer had cheated on her husband, former backup dancer Dean Sheremet, with Eddie Cibrian, her co-star in the Lifetime original movie “Northern Lights.”
“This is a difficult time for me and my loved ones,” the singer-actress wrote on her Web site. “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 black and white.”
On Tuesday, Us Weekly reported that LeAnn and Eddie had engaged in a steamy affair – but a rep for the actor issued a strong denial to Access Hollywood on Wednesday.
“Absolutely NOT true,” the rep said.
In a show of support, on what appears to be his personal Twitter page, Dean wrote, “I love my wife!!!” on Thursday morning.
The couple wed in 2002, when LeAnn was 19 and Dean was 21. Eddie, 35, married model Brandi Glanville in 2001. The couple has two young sons.
A rep for LeAnn had no further details when reached by Access on Wednesday.
“We do not comment on LeAnn’s personal life,” a rep for the star said.
