LeAnn Rimes infamously cheated on ex-husband Dean Sheremet with her Northern Lights co-star Eddie Cibrian. In a new interview with All Access Nashville, she says that she has no regrets about the affair.
She says, despite what you’ve heard about them, they’re happy and we all shouldn’t be in a rush to judge them. She said, “What happened is not who I am, period. But I do know how much I love him. So I’ve always said I don’t live my life with regret. I can’t.”
Last year, the couple got together, but failed to end their previous marriages. Eddie was with his ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, while LeAnn was still with Dean.
Of the affair, LeAnn reveals, “It happens every day to so many people. And if I take away my album sales, my words…you just have another couple. You had two couples whose marriages didn’t work who really stumbled upon each other and fell in love. I can’t change critics’ minds. Nothing I’m going to say is going to change it. I do know that and I have accepted that.”
Eddie added, “The truth is that we’re human beings. We make mistakes and we learn form them, but we’re human. We fell in love. We’re talking about something that’s over a year, year and-a-half old, really, and we’re still together, and we’re madly in love. And I think people are finally seeing that, but it doesn’t mean that people will accept it or the tabloids will stop trying to print lies and try to tear us apart or tear us down.”
LeAnn added, “We’re really happy in what we feel privately. We hope that one day, I think people will feel publicly.”
I won’t bash them for finding love, but what I will say, is, the next time (if there is one), be responsible to the one you’re with. Don’t lie, come clean about your feelings and there won’t be any backlash.
