Eddie Cibrian’s ex wants spousal support, almost $40 K a month


It’s been a little while since we heard from Brandi Glanville, Eddie Cibrian’s estranged wife. She used to give interviews every week or so, just dropping in little quotes here and there about Eddie being bastard, a home wrecker, and how he’s going to drown in his unfair fishbowl, et cetera. But there hasn’t been much from her lately. Meanwhile, Eddie and LeAnn Rimes seem be going strong. Sort of. Last week, the big story was that Eddie may be cheating on LeAnn with the other mistress he had while he was married to Brandi, a girl named Scheana Marie. Eddie denied it all, and claimed he would sue Life & Style for that story. Nothing’s happened there either.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that Eddie is a busy guy. He doesn’t have time to worry about stuff in his past, like his estranged wife and their two sons. Thus, he didn’t notice that Brandi and their boys need more money. Brandi filed for spousal support in an LA court this week, claiming that Eddie needs to share his $60,000-a-week paycheck with her, pronto. Apparently, Brandi is only asking Eddie for $39,963 a month for spousal support, household bills, medical bills and schools. That seems like a lot, right?

Eddie Cibrian’s estranged wife Brandi Glanville wants him to pay her spousal support.

TMZ.com reports that she has filed documents in L.A. County Superior Court claiming that the CSI star, 36, earns $60,000 a week but is only paying for her for “household bills.”

Glanville, 36 – mother to Cibrian’s sons, Mason, 6, and Jake, 2 – is asking for $39,963 a month in spousal support so she can pay for the kids’ schooling and medical bills, among other expenses.

In August, Glanville filed for divorce after eight years, citing irreconcilable differences.

She told Us Weekly she was tired of Cibrian’s infidelity. As Us Weekly first reported, he had an affair with now-single LeAnn Rimes while shooting Lifetime original movie Northern Lights, which they filmed last fall.

He recently announced that he plans to sue Life & Style for claiming that he cheated on Rimes, 27. He said the tabloid published a story “filled with inaccuracies and deceitful lies, presumably to titillate sales, but clearly resulting in harm to Eddie Cibrian and others.”

Nearly $40,000 a month sounds like a lot to me, it really does. But then again, I’m not raising two boys in Los Angeles without a job. And if Eddie’s making roughly $240,000 a month (less, considering he’s got to pay out his managers and stuff), Brandi’s due a chunk of that. Considering the situation with Eddie and LeAnn, I think Brandi’s due. God knows, Eddie really doesn’t need the money. LeAnn is paying his way now!

    Don’t get mad. Get everything!

  2. Samantha says:

    I have no sympathy for people like him. Take him to the cleaners. Seriously, the pants he is wearing in the top picture look disgusting. Then take him for everything he is worth.

  3. Deb says:

    Actually under Cali law Brandi is being
    generous. I hope she asks for more than that. My opinion, Leann can support what she bought and paid for.

  4. Lantana says:

    Wow. I hope LeAnn thinks it’s worth 40 grand a month to boink his sorry ass.

  5. niamh (neev) says:

    This is sick. The kids should be provided for and the exwife should learn to support herself. She’s spent his money long enough.

  6. Jeri says:

    OK your dueling statements don’t make sense – in one spot you say:
    Apparently, Eddie is only giving Brandi $39,963 a month for household bills, medical bills and schools. That seems like a lot, right?
    In another spot you say: Glanville, 36 – mother to Cibrian’s sons, Mason, 6, and Jake, 2 – is asking for $39,963 a month in spousal support so she can pay for the kids’ schooling and medical bills, among other expenses.

    So – doesn’t this mean she is asking for $39,963. NOT that she is getting $39,963. and wants more. Does this make sense?

  7. LolaBella says:

    Whoa, $40K???!!!

    Good thing he’s got that new gig on CSI Miami!

    Eddie, was LeAnn really worth it?

  8. daisy says:

    what is it with leann that makes me hate her so much?And what is it with guys that have a beautiful women at home,then cheat with someone of lower standard?I think he should pay…in more ways than 1

  9. Ron says:

    The amount is high based on his earnings. If he is getting 60,000/ep he is paying out 15,000 off the top to his agent and manager and i am sure he has both. 22,800 goes to the fed. 6,000 to the state. He’s clearing 16,200 per episode which equals 356,400 in pocket for 22/ep. She’s asking for 479,556 annually. I am sure he gets residuals etc, maybe he’s clearing a mil in pocket but doubtful. Also, 60,000/ep is on the low end of the drama spectrum.

  10. Goddess711 says:

    I sooooooo hope she gets it plus a little extra for a rainy day!

  11. Eileen Yover says:

    Boy this guy has a hard road ahead of him if he really IS cheating on LeMANN with his other side-chick! He’ll be in the poorhouse with that monthly support and no sugarmomma to step in a help his sorry butt…that’s if she dumps him!

  12. JJ says:

    Let’s not forget that Brandi asked EC to file for divorce so he would have to pay the court costs too. Stalker girl (who looked whoreable at the CMA’s) has sure bought herself a dud. Hope Brandi takes him for every penny.

  13. Deb says:

    just issued a statement through TMZ….saying his kids are his highest priority and he will always take care of Brandi. Doing a good job so far NOT!!!! Agree JJ Leann sure bought herself a DUD.
    Wonder how that Lawsuit with L$S is going?

  14. Rae says:

    What the hell?! He’s getting $60,000 a month?! From CSI? I am appalled. And flabbergasted. It’s not like he’s Gil Grissom!

  15. Catherine says:

    I don’t care what she ends up getting, as long as CSI kicks his ass off. He is the worst actor.

  16. betty says:

    As far as the lawsuit goes Eddie was just grandstanding to appease Leann. I bet he hasn’t even filed. Suing is easy recovery is hard he knows he’s already been found guilty in the court of public opinion.Brandi supported him between his acting jobs now let he and Leann can support Brandi and her kids. Eddie didn’t come cheap Leann so help him pay Show him how much you love him..

  17. kellsbells says:

    Good for her- she deserves more! As for suing the tabloids, for what? He clearly cheated- and got caught.
    He needs to shut up and pay out!

  18. JJ says:

    BG’s statement on Twitter puts a different spin on $$ story. More interesting is E online article about Brandi wanting to keeps her son’s away from whoreable Stalker girl. Hope BG is able to legally restrict visitation. I am sure LR will be pregnant soon, unless those vasectomy rumors are true.

  19. Val says:

    I fully intended to rip Eddie a new one in my comment until I read Brandi’s twitter (thanks JJ). Brandi could have stood by while Eddie was ripped apart on various websites but she didn’t. Refusing any natural and female tendency for revenge or spitefullness, Brandi twittered the truth as she always does. A better woman than I, Brandi is, for I would have allowed boiling oil to cook Eddie. Brandi is due sufficient financial support to allow her to “live in the manner to which she is accustom” and Eddie is required by law to fulfill his “fiduciary responsiblities” to that end. I hope Brandi will keep at the forefront of her thoughts that Eddie is a compulsive liar and any promises he makes must be in writing. Furthermore, Rimes must be kept away from the children until six months before a date certain of any wedding (to either Scheana or Rimes). Rimes is mentally unstable and will become more so as her career continues to falter. As for Rimes and her PR team of cyber-rats, please continue to degrade Brandi for it only demonstrates the differences between a truely quality woman and Rimes’ team of soul-less soulmates.

  20. rosie says:

    i love his dimples. i have to say though, remembering that there are 2 sides to every story and have we heard his? if my husband humiliated me by making out with someone else and it was in every tabloid – heaven help him. i wouldn’t leave him with a dime.

  21. lucy2 says:

    Considering he’s the one who decided to cheat and end the marriage, I can see her going for as much as she possibly can. But I don’t think she’ll get that out of him. He just joined a long running show, and aside from that, his resume isn’t exactly stellar. He may get a couple of years with that paycheck, but I wouldn’t expect much more beyond that.

  22. betty says:

    Rosie you are so right, we are still waiting to hear Eddie’s side.

  23. sunseeker says:

    Which side BETTY, he obviously has not paid any spousal support otherwide Brandi would not be claiming. Considering what he earns, she is not asking too much. Some actors wives have got a lot more. Eddie has had to sell his other house because of financial difficulties and now he has Rimes and he needs his money for presents for her not for his wife and children. I don’t care what was wrong in there marriage , none of as know, but we do know he cheated and has been for years, this is not Bandi’s fault he has been cheating with every girlfriend he has had, and now he should pay and Eddie is too egotistical to think of his children. Eveybody can be a good dad when they are around, but Eddie has hardly been at home a lot, with work, two mistresses and a wife how much time is there left for his children.

  24. deb says:

    We have heard Eddie’s side in every photo op he was in after claiming to be a loving and devoted father and wanting to shield his kids(MEXICO). We heard Eddie’s side in every photo op Leann(smirking) was in after Eddie claimed to be a loving and devoted father. We heard Eddie’s side in all the LR “sources” leaked comments to the tabs almost weekly. At some point he he could have told her to STFU. As for BG’s twitter did anybody ever think she might be being sarcastic? Look at the court docs or is that supposed to be a lie too? The actual date the papers were filed should be a pretty good indicator on just how well Eddie is taking care of HIS responsibilities(I truly hope he is)and if he was taking care of his responsibilities why the lawyer statement? Now we all don’t know what goes on behind the scenes but there are plenty of pics of EC/LR at concerts, on vacation, golfing and dining out. Not to mention the birthday bracelet. Who paid for that?

    Also EC/LR PR must have typed their fingers to the bone hammering the boards. Predictable.

  25. deb says:

    Read BG twitter again. I think she’s being the bigger person. God Bless her.

  26. jj says:

    Just read the court papers and although I did not think it possible, my opinion of EC went even lower. All his public comments about being a devoted father and yet hardly makes any time to be with his son’s. EC and LR, just plain ugly, both inside and outside.

  27. Mave says:

    Yuck LeAnn please keep smirking more in pictures so we remember what a creep you really are. The two little children you’ve hurt don’t deserve that.
