Eddie Cibrian: ‘Every media outlet should know not to believe anything Brandi says’


Is LeAnn Rimes still pretending to have an injured ankle? Because look at those shoes. These are photos of LeAnn and Eddie Cibrian out for lunch on Thursday in Calabasas. After lunch, LeAnn went solo to a doctor’s appointment in Beverly Hills, where I hope her doctor told her to burn those shoes.

Anyway, we have more details about this neverending child support drama between Brandi Glanville and Eddie. Here’s the thing: I think Brandi just chose the wrong wording AND the wrong format to discuss this issue. She should not have gone on Twitter and tweeted that Eddie wants her to pay child support to him, because that’s technically not true and because it’s stupid to discuss this stuff on Twitter. As we discussed yesterday, there are some legal issues involved with the child support and alimony payments Eddie makes to Brandi, but it’s more complicated than just “Eddie wants Brandi to give him money.” First of all, Eddie is apparently done with paying Brandi’s alimony. So that’s one thing. The second part is that Eddie apparently overpaid with child support or spousal support?

Eddie Cibrian is coming back for round two. The actor has responded for the second time to ex-wife Brandi Glanville’s allegations that he has asked her to pay child support for their two sons.

“Brandi’s first tweet stated Eddie was asking her for child support which is now been proven as a complete lie,” a statement Us Weekly has obtained reads. “Eddie has been and is continuing TO pay child support to Brandi. This is an unrelated issue and regards the QDRO – Qualified Domestic Relations Order. It only pertains to the division of Eddie’s retirement plan. This was discussed, agreed upon and in place four years ago in 2010 and is now being divided up.”

“This is yet another endless attempt to manipulate the truth which always seems to happen when Brandi has something to promote,” the statement continued. “By now, after all these years of this happening repeatedly, everyone including every media outlet should know not to believe anything Brandi says.”

As previously reported, Glanville, 41, claimed via Twitter on Feb. 18 that Cibrian, 40, had allegedly asked her to pay for child support for their two sons Mason, 10, and Jake, 6. (The exes divorced in 2010, and Cibrian is now married to singer LeAnn Rimes.) In a first statement after the allegations, Cibrian noted that “the notion is preposterous.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, however, has already begun to concentrate on other aspects of her life. “Everytime I have a book come out someone pulls shady sh-t to make it not about my book, I’m going to now focus on my NY times best seller,” she tweeted on Feb. 20. “No more EX talk I know I started it but I really want 2enjoy the success of my new book Drinking &Dating!Thnk UAlLL 4 makin it a best seller.”

[From Us Weekly]

Brandi was practically dancing with glee that she finally got Eddie and LeAnn to engage with her during her book promotion, so Brandi took to Twitter to publish some documentation about all of the legal and financial issues she and Eddie are still dealing with. Brandi claims that she’s already paid Eddie back for some of the expenses “during the end of our marriage” and blah blah. Then she just started tweeting about her book, which is what this whole thing is about (for her). She just needed to revive this war again for her book.

Brandi did appear on Ross Matthews’ new show and she clarified the money issue a little bit, basically saying that Eddie was partly right and partly wrong. She said in part: “He wants me to pay him back alimony, but it’s actually combined child support and alimony. The thing is when my first book came out, he pulled something similar and just sent me a lawyer’s letter like a couple days before and it was a New York Times Best Seller. This time it’s a New York Times Best Seller [again]. So I’m hoping if there’s a book three he’ll want some more of my money…You know I went out and hired a big fancy lawyer for this one because before I would just like roll over and sign whatever because I was so sick of fighting. I want to move forward now.”

    What a horrendous outfit! Jesus!

    Dude lost all credibility a long time ago.

  3. Tracy says:

    Living with Loonie has aged ole Ed.

  4. Elisabeth says:

    oh yes Eddie…everyone else is a liar but you

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Right. Because you have always told the truth Eddie, to your wives and girlfriends alike.

      • respect says:

        Good try, Ediot! Thank God for Eddie! The lone bastion of truthiness in an otherwise lying world. Mendacity! Mr. Cibrian….stop trying for credibility, that ship already sailed. Hi Leann! Stand by your manchild.

      • janie says:

        I’m sick of all three of these people! They all need to be under a gag order! This mud slinging has gone on too long. Stop talking & tweeting ladies!

      • emmie_a says:

        Exactly. He lied about his affair so he is no more believable than Brandi… although I still think Brandi is more truth-based than him.

        Sort of off-topic, but yesterday Brandi tweeted a picture of a pair of booties she wanted… Then hours later LeAnn sent a tweet about shopping for purses and booties. I have no doubt we’ll see LeAnn wearing the booties Brandi wanted in a few weeks, as she has done in the past. She is SICK-obsessed w/Brandi. She needs help. As much as I think Brandi has gone off her rocker, the root of all this is LeAnn’s crazy-sick obsession w/all things Brandi.

      • littlestar says:

        emmie, isn’t it crazy how obsessed Leann is with Brandi? I wonder if Brandi ever feels frightened by the SWFing – she has GOT to know it happens! I actually think it would be interesting to know WHY Leann is so obsessed with Brandi.

    • Tammy says:

      Brandi tweeted an all out lie when she said Eddie wanted child support from her…that is not the case. Maybe Brandi and gossip columnists alike should first understand what the issue is before reporting it. A qualified domestic relations orders deals with retirement plans only (not child support or alimony) and whatever agreement was worked up 4 years, which both parties signed, has to be followed. Eddie submitted expenses to have the QDRO reduced…which he can do this. And he can have his child support reduced if she is now making more income than she was 4 years ago, this happens all the time. But it has nothing to do with child support. Just because he cheated on her and is a disgusting pig does not mean he is lying about this.

  5. Dap says:

    It was a stupid lie to make. Way to easy to uncover.

  6. Patricia says:

    Brandi is coming off as incredibly desperate. I think the article is correct in that she’s been desperate to engage them so that she has more dramatic fodder to promote her dumb new book.
    Leanne actually seems like the normal one at this point. Wow Brandi, when you’ve become such a mess that you are making Leanne look good you should know it’s time to STOP.
    She’s stuck in middle school. How pathetic.

    • Sullivan says:

      Patricia, I wholeheartedly agree.

    • Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

      What you said sounds about right.

    • Jayna says:

      I agree. She knows there’s a lot of fans that are turned off to her and she is doing things to try to get promo and sympathy. All of a sudden in interviews carrying on how she still loves Lisa because fans are over her bashing Lisa. Pulling the Eddie/LeAnn card to get sympathy. This letter regrading the retirement fund and overpayment was January 31. So February 19th and 20th she starts the onslaught of poor me, my ex is asking for me to pay child support, poor victim Brandi, buy my book. Then when challenged, leave me alone, someone trying to ruin my book tour, I just want to talk about my book. LOL Then why is she discussing them in interviews about a book regarding dating or in her case f’cking? She’s in an interview talking away about Eddie is a cheater and is going to cheat on LeAnn, on and on. She is using them to promo her book. So don’t act all innocent.

      • MoxyLady007 says:

        The best way to get people on her side is to show her moving forward in the best interest of her boys. She needs to make a deal with a DIY network show- one where they show you how to buy a fixer upper and then fix it for you. She can finally have her home for the boys, get publicity for being great and chill and fun on a home reno show and publicity for her book and a wider audience. It’s a win win win. Plus maybe she can parlay that into a career as a decorator or designer or sometimes anything.

        I suggest she goes with property brothers.

    • Assistant Rachel says:

      This exactly! I used to sympathize with Brandi, but I just don’t anymore. Anyone who truly wanted to move on would not behave the way she does.

  7. Deanne says:

    Eddie’s got zero credibility at this point. They can’t sue Brandi over the books, so they are doing this to punish her instead. It’s kind of transparent. Eddie’s looking mighty rough lately and I honestly think that LeAnn needs to be studied by scientists, for her miraculous ability to heal in the blink of an eye. A few days ago, she posted photos of herself icing her ankle with captions describing the intolerable pain and now she’s able to take her dancercize classes and teeter around in those hideous shoes. She’s a living, breathing, medical miracle.

    • Tammy says:

      What Eddie submitted was expenses to have the QDRO reduced…meaning what he pays out of his retirement plan to her. When they divorced, a property settlement agreement was signed and filed with the court.. it outlined child support, alimony and the division of the retirement plan. How the retirement plan was divided, whatever was used to divide it up…like expenses for children etc, was signed by both Brandi and Eddie. So her tweet that he was looking for child support was a LIE. She is the one with zero credibility at this point. She rehashes this crap for publicity only and it is getting old.

      • Erinn says:

        ‘How the retirement plan was divided, whatever was used to divide it up…like expenses for children’

        So expenses for the children. ‘hey kids daddy thinks he paid too much to support you over the years’. Whatever the case is, it’s pretty clear the timing was suspect to begin with and the people most getting hurt in all this are the kids.

      • Sullivan says:

        Tammy, you just keep coming back with facts, don’t you? That’s too logical. There are some who seem committed to misunderstanding the facts.

      • Deanne says:

        To be honest, the semantics don’t interest me any more. I don’t have disbelief in the legal truths of what you are saying. They are what they are and he may well be fully, legally entitled to ask for money back, but the timing is suspect. By doing what he’s doing right now, HE is the one actually bringing attention to Brandi and she’s running with it. Why is he just figuring out he”s overpaid now? This isn’t hurting her book sales. It’s actually probably helping her, which is obviously the last thing he’s interested in. He’s not a good person. He lives a luxury lifestyle by mooching off of the woman he called “speed bump” and chooses perpetual vacations, over work. He’s slime.

      • yep says:

        Oh yes, I remember now. Didn’t Eddie sell their family home without telling Brandi? And keep the money? Didn’t he stick his nasty dick in someone else while his wife thought they were married? Didn’t he encourage his new whore piece to “twitter war” with his childrens mother? I think Miss Brandi is doing rather well in all this. Any other woman would’ve got all stabby.

    • Megan says:

      Sorry but this is not on Eddie (who is an ass no question) he is well within is rights to push for the correct settlement amount.

      More importantly we wouldn’t have known anything about this had Brandi not lied!!!!! Brandi went on twitter and accused him of trying to no SUPPORT his kids!!! That is a disgusting accusation and a blatant lie!

      The only person that has lost credibility is Brandi. She has been beyond desperate to engage Eddie and LeAnne, they have been ignoring all her digs and nasty words towards them so she uses her children; forcing Eddie to publicly respond. Now that Brandi is caught in a lie she is backtracking.

      Brandi made this public not Eddie. Eddie is a cheat and a douche but this isn’t on him at all. We should never have known this was happening and wouldn’t had Brandi shut up.

      • Tulip Garden says:

        I agree that this isn’t on Eddie and that Brandi has lost some credibility. Still, Eddie has no credibility to lose, IMO. He is still an A-hole wrapped up in MeAnn’s tacky furs laying an the bottom of a douche-canoe on his way to the Cheater Islands! Just because this isn’t on Ediot, that doesn’t mean he is suddenly Mr. Congeniality.
        BTW, I have no dog in this race and don’t really care for any of them.

      • Megan says:

        Like I said he is an jerk, and he is a cheat. I have zero respect for him but that doesn’t mean Brandi isn’t equally horrible. I just don’t buy her as some poor put upon victim.

        Honestly with this situation. I am more disgusted with Brandi then Eddie. This stuff effects her children. She put out that their dad didn’t want to pay child support, I know she thinks they don’t see this stuff and maybe they don’t but kids at school do and those kids hear it.

        Brandi hurt her kids, to try to play victim after people turned on her for her actions on a reality show and to force Eddie to engage so she can keep this stupid feud alive to keep her in the spot light.

        For me if I had to pick who was the better person in this situation it would be the guy that screwed around on his wife over the woman that is willing to emotionally hurt her children for attention.

      • Tulip Garden says:

        The thing is that both parents are guilty, overtly or covertly, of hurting their children. Brandi by the this comment and I’m certain other comments although I don’t follow them too closely. Eddie by not muzzling MeAnn about “her side of the story”, calling the paps, and generally harassing the ex-wife. Also, Eddie should put a stop to this stupid idea that he shouldn’t talk with his ex-wife about their children which I believe is solely MeAnn instigated. I hold Eddie responsible for that.
        There is no innocent party post-divorce between Eddie and Brandi.

  8. Hannah says:

    Short shorts with heels/platforms almost always look cheap.

  9. Sullivan says:

    Brandi and Eddie are both liars. Their marriage, their divorce, and their co-parenting- what a tawdry mess.

  10. bettyrose says:

    Love the shoes. . . Another NYT bestseller, eh? I’ve done some crazy things in my time, too. How do I get a bestseller just writing about my own antics?

  11. Anon33 says:

    The degree to which people are willfully misunderstanding this issue is frightening.

  12. K-Rock says:

    Those yellow shorts are hideous.

  13. Luca26 says:

    Can’t stand anyone of them. Brandi is a manipulator and she didn’t accidentally characterize anything she lied that’s her M.O. on and off screen. Those poor kids.

  14. Arock says:

    I’m going to write a book and it’s going to be called “why can’t lele dress herself?: an investigative look into acid wash, platforms, and poor choices. ”

  15. Dawn says:

    I already believe little of what that mess has to say. Her poor boys must be humiliated by her big mouth on a daily basis. How wonderful to know that your mother will have sex with a guy or a girl or that your mother was f****d on a hood of a car by a basketball player. I really don’t care that Eddie cheated on her with LeAnn as she was probably cheating on him with anyone who looked twice at her. She is a scuzz bucket to me. Yuk.

  16. ALJsMom says:

    Im pretty sure they are all in on this together.

  17. Jennifer Astin says:

    The SHORTS. My EYES.

  18. Kelliekat says:

    Another lie from HPV-I’ve-got-a-waitress-in-every-town Eddie. This guy is trash. He has been trying to punish Brandi for daring to kick his cheating butt out, since he got on Leann’s payroll. Just like with Brandi’s last book tour, Eddie has to create legal drama to hurt and humiliate his successful ex. Since they broke up Eddie has been using Leann’s lawyers to threaten Brandi with multiple lawsuits just for telling the truth. Now he is mad that Brandi would dare to tell the ugly truth again. Eddie IS trying to get more money out of Brandi. He is not working and she is, so he wants her cash. You can play with semantics about his retirement account all you want but he is the one who created this entire situation. He left his wife and children deeply in debt and married his multimillionaire stalker. Now he and his stalker spend all her money and time stalking and harassing his ex wife.
    If you fans really want to help Eddie, tell him to MOVE ON, stop legally harassing his ex wife, get a job and support his kids. And screwing Leann doesn’t count.

  19. Jayna says:

    She starts this and then gets pissed off and says he’s engaging in the press to ruin her book promo. I am so sick of her immature behavior. She is the one that started the tweeting bashing him, and she got just what she wanted, to get him to engage for promo purposes and to play the victim stance again. I can’t stand Eddie or LeAnn, but that doesn’t take away from Brandi’s immature and transparent behavior. She can’t have it both ways. She can’t tweet stuff to diss Eddie and not expect a reaction and then run off crying when her original tweet is challenged, and tweeting how, poor
    me, I just want to talk about my book and big, bad Eddie won’t let me,
    trying to ruin it. Spare me. His letter was from the end of January but she just happens to tweet about it this week, the week of her book launch and promo. LOL Talk about doing stuff for promo and sympathy.

    I don’t find anything Brandi says anymore credible. LeAnn and Eddie were never credible. They all deserve each other, truthfully.

  20. Leslie says:

    Well, we know not to believe Ediot, since he denied cheating with LeAnn (the speed bump) in his marriage to Brandi. And his publicist said he absolutely was not cheating. Words of truth from the Ediot. He has aged a lot in the past five years. I just saw a picture of him from 2009 and he looked cute and healthy. Now he looks old, tired and worn out. That can’t be from work. Must be from daily life with the speed bump.

  21. Maybe says:

    Take another sip of Kool Aid, Eddie…

  22. Relli says:

    Oh Cruds your so funny! Sometimes I do start to feel sorry for him because I think he really believes the voices in his head and can justify any action as long as it’s in his best interest, also his live in ride or die cheerleader doesn’t help.

    @deane I agree with you I am done with the semantics and I truly do understand what each side is saying. So while he is well within his rights, it’s more a moral question if you really should. I praise spaghetti monster everyday I do not work in family law because in most recent experience there is a great deal of ambiguity when it comes to the laws and a lot of ambulance chasers who are willing to file crap to stroke their clients egos just to collect more cash. Remember kids lawyers and doctors are a dime a dozen if you aren’t satisfied withy the one you have don’t be afraid to find a new one.

  23. anne_000 says:

    From the IRS:

    “A QDRO is a judgment, decree or order for a retirement plan to pay child support, alimony or marital property rights to a spouse, former spouse, child or other dependent of a participant. ”


    Brandi has acknowledged some time ago that she’s not been getting alimony. Thus she must be considering the QDRO as part of the child support expenses.

    And now that EC is wanting $100,000 from what was most likely a previously negotiated settlement regarding QDRO & waited all these years to get it back & just in time for the 2nd book’s outing, I’m thinking EC’s timing is suspect.

  24. Elaine C says:

    Like I’m going to believe a liar when he tells me not to believe another liar ? Either I’m confused or it’s the mmj…..

  25. GeeMoney says:

    The only people I feel sorry for in that entire love triangle of doom are Brandi and Eddie’s children. As far as I’m concerned, LeAnn, Brandi and Eddie all deserve each other, b/c they are all crazy and dysfunctional.

  26. A Fan says:

    I will be happy when these two break up.

    [it's just a matter of time...]

  27. dorothy says:

    If I were a cheap hooker I would so love her outfit.

  28. claire says:

    No sympathy for this guy in any way shape or form. I’m sure he treats Leann like crap too, hence why she overcompensates so much and makes up stuff for appearances sake.

  29. Naomi says:

    What is ridiculous is all this talk on the Internet about them. The only thing any of them have going on is the public bitching each of them does. Neither Eddie nor Brandi seem capable of making a living unless they make their personal drama public and while Leann at least has a talent she seems to have largely thrown away her career with all her tweeting nonsense and public airing of her private business. They have latched onto each other in a viscious cycle and they have gone too far to stop.

  30. Hiddles forever says:

    Are these people adults? Because they all seem to be stuck in primary school, forever, in a loop.

    You lie, no you lie, no wait you lie…. If someone was going crazy and tooking the Iphones off their hands, they would go crazy from social media’s withdrawal…


  31. Sloane Wyatt says:

    I’ve always thought the DimpledLoveRat looked gooood. Still do.

  32. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    Kate Moss must have pissed leann off something bad for her to draw a mustache like that.

  33. Dia says:

    Eddie STFU! If he was over paying that should have been caught earlier considering how much he dislikes Brandi. He knew he wasn’t getting any acting jobs. So why now?! To throw Brandi into a fit.

    I used to be a big fan of Brandi, but her over sharing of her life and being a general hot mess is too much. She needs to keep these things private. She did exactly what they wanted her to do. And now she looks just as bad.

    Over it.

  34. someone says:

    The letter from the QRDO attorney was sent out January 31, 2014. A copy was mailed to Brandi and Eddie, separately. The timing of the letter is not Eddie’s doing. He didn’t send it to her himself at this particular time to get her upset. The mutually retained attorney sent it to each of them on his own accord.

    I do think Eddie should have taken the high road and not included the “can’t believe anything Brandi says” part. Not helpful. It does seem like Brandi embellishes things though. As Ross pointed out, she is the common denominator in all the drama (Lisa, Joyce, etc etc)

  35. Michele says:

    Edwado STFU please, you have no credibility anywhere these days.

  36. Snowpea says:

    Waaaaaait? The Ediot is only FORTY? I thought he was pushing fifty at least.

    Are we sure these hillbilies are being truthful about their age? Brandi’s knees alone look at least 45. No offence to 45 year old knees!

    Man, these people…why are we STILL talking about them? I still really really feel for Brandi…as much as she might be stirring the pot as much as the other two now, she’s still way better than the other two muppets…

    …I thank my lucky stars my kids never got a bonus mum like that crackpot Rimes!

  37. lindy says:

    Hey, Ediot, take a close look at that face you’ve got to wake up to every morning. She’s fugly even when she gets made up for the paps she calls for every little thing the two of you do… Wonder what ole horsey looks like without any makeup? Karma’s a bitch, isn’t it, Ediot?

  38. Jennifer12 says:

    From what I’ve read, Eddie has been playing head games for a while now. He tried to become friends with Brandi and stuck up for her against Leann, and now he’s back to this nonsense. This guy gets off on head games. I don’t agree with how Brandi handles some situations- being honest doesn’t mean running your mouth24-7- but I can see where she blows up from frustration and anger at the constant back and forth. There’s no escape because he’s her kids’ dad and Leann is allowed to crawl around in their lives. That said, she has to stop the pattern of blowing up publicly and then backing off when she realizes she’s gone too far. I completely believe that Eddie is once again trying to stick it to her, this time financially, but she has taken a good step by retaining a good lawyer and trying to quiet down. As hard as it is, she must stop engaging.

  39. Denise says:

    Obviously that shirt was not meant to be worn on a body with breasts.

  40. dls says:

    Ediot looks really really old, has no acting career anymore, (not that he had a great one before the horse), and is a total douchebag. Leman the horse has trounced on every fan and tap danced on the publics last nerve to the point that she (if that is what you call it) has been voted one of the most hated celebs around. Couple that wonderful title with the fact that she has NO record label, no money, Mr. Ed’s looks, and a douchebag unemployable creep for a husband, and welcome to the new reality show Leman and the Douche, oh I mean Leann and Eddie. ENJOY!
