LeAnn Rimes Divorce Rumors

Rumors that LeAnn Rimes was looking to divorce her husband Dean Sheremet. LeAnn was allegedly caught in an affair with her co-star from Northern Lights, Eddie Cibrian.

"This is a difficult time for me and my loved ones, but I appreciate all your continued support," the 26-year-old country singer wrote on her personal website Wednesday. "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."

In advance of an Us Weekly cover story that claims she's having an affair, LeAnn Rimes posted a message on her Web site on Wednesday (March 18) about the "difficult time" she's facing. The Us Weekly issue, which indicates she's having an affair with actor Eddie Cibrian, hit newsstands Wednesday. Rimes and Cibrian co-star in a new Lifetime movie, Nora Roberts' Northern Lights, which debuts Saturday (March 21). "This is a difficult time for me and my loved ones, but I appreciate all your continued support," she writes. "I would like to assure all of you that this [her Web site] 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." Rimes married Dean Sheremet in 2002. Cibrian has been married to model Brandi Glanville since 2001. After the news of the Us cover story, Rimes appeared during a previously-scheduled interview segment on Live With Regis & Kelly, noting, "Everything's great. There's rumors all the time." She added, "Things pass, life happens. You know, everything people read is not ... as easy as black and white. That's what it is. I let it roll off my back most of the time." Later Wednesday, Cibrian provided a statement to Access Hollywood to deny the rumor. "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," he said. "It is a fabricated story that is using random snapshots as connective tissue to create a scandalous relationship."

LeAnn Rimes Biography via CMT

LeAnn Rimes was born on Aug. 28, 1982, in Jackson, Miss., with the first name Margaret. Raised in Garland, Texas, she won her first talent show in 1987 and sang the national anthem at various sporting events. Her parents recorded an album to sell at gigs when she was 7, and four years later she recorded the album All That produced by her father Wilbur at Norman Petty's studio in Clovis, N.M. One track, an aching ballad, "Blue," had been written by disc jockey Bill Mack for Patsy Cline who died before it could be recorded. Roy Drusky and Kenny Roberts subsequently cut the song, but Mack felt that it was ideal for Rimes.

While listening to tapes on holiday, record executive Mike Curb heard Rimes' voice, rushed to a phone and offered her a contract with his nationally distributed label. On her debut album for Curb, she reworked "Blue." (Its B-side was a yodeling duet of "Cattle Call" with 78-year-old Eddy Arnold.) In 1996, the new version of "Blue" peaked at No. 10, but its retro musical approach and girlish charm propelled the 13-year-old to instant stardom. She won the Grammy for best new artist and the CMA Horizon award in 1997. The album sold more than 8 million copies and also included the peppy No. 1 hit, "One Way Ticket."

A remake of "Unchained Melody" boosted sales for her album of early recordings in 1997. That same year, she released You Light Up My Life: Inspirational Songs, containing the smash "How Do I Live." The single stayed on the charts for more than a year, at the time becoming the best-selling single in history. Rimes recorded the song for the film Con Air, but her version was rejected in favor of Trisha Yearwood's more mature rendition. Yearwood took the song to No. 2 on the country charts.

As the close of the '90s, Rimes scored three more Top 10 country hits: "Commitment," "Nothin' New Under the Moon" and "Big Deal." She did find success with soundtracks in 2000, contributing "I Need You" to the TV movie Jesus and "Can't Fight the Moonlight" to Coyote Ugly. (She also appeared in the latter film.) However, she publicly disowned the 2002 album I Need You, which was cobbled together from studio outtakes. Her career was also scarred when she sued her father and Curb Records, claiming underpaid royalties and an unfair recording contract. Her father countersued. However, the disputes were ultimately settled, and Wilbur gave LeAnn away at her 2002 wedding to dancer Dean Sheremet.

Following the underperforming and sexually-charged Twisted Angel in 2002, she released Greatest Hits in 2003 and a Christmas album in 2004. This Woman (2005) included the Top 5 hits "Nothin' 'Bout Love Makes Sense" and "Probably Wouldn't Be This Way."

After a few years in Los Angeles, Rimes and Sheremet now live in Nashville. She has also published a children's book, Jag.
