LeAnn Rimes announces her divorce after romantic vacation with Eddie Cibrian

Surprising no one, LeAnn Rimes has officially filed for divorce from her estranged husband Dean Sheremet. The couple married in 2002 when LeAnn was 19 years old and Dean was 21 – and her backup dancer. The couple officially separated back in July, after months of rumors that LeAnn and Eddie Cibrian had been engaged in a full-fledged affair. This comes one week after Eddie officially filed for divorce from his wife, Brandi Glanville.

Meanwhile, Eddie and LeAnn have been going on public “dates” for several weeks now. They’ve been out golfing, attending Kings of Leon concerts, and the rumor is that Eddie is now living with LeAnn, in her Los Angeles home. Us Weekly points out that LeAnn filed for divorce after returning from a “romantic” vacation with Eddie in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Us Weekly has also put the drama on this week’s cover – it shows LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian looking happy with the headline: “Heartbreak & Lies: Their Exes Speak Out”. There’s a promise of “their spurned spouses become angry allies” and “Fighting back tears, Dean Sheremet tells Us, ‘I’m doing OK.’” Us hasn’t released anything online yet, but here’s LeAnn’s divorce announcement:

It’s over for LeAnn Rimes and husband Dean Sheremet.

“After much thoughtful mutual consideration, Deane and I have agreed to move forward with dissolving our marriage,” the country star says on her Web site using the spelling of her husband’s given name. “This decision was amicable and we remain committed and caring friends with great admiration for one another. Thank you so much for all of your continued love and support – it is deeply appreciated.”

Rimes, who turned 27 on Friday, married Sheremet in 2002 when she was 19 and he was 21. They separated amid allegations of an affair with actor Eddie Cibrian after the two met while filming the Lifetime movie Northern Lights last fall. Cibrian, meanwhile, filed for divorce from wife Brandi Glanville last week.

Cibrian’s ex has called him “somebody I just don’t know” and claims she sensed the attraction between the two when they filmed their Lifetime movie Northern Lights last fall.

Rimes’s longtime friend, Dope Den Productions founder Jeff Berger, says that Rimes and Sheremet, a songwriter and former dancer, are “doing their best to handle it as mature adults.”

“Dean’s her best friend and that’s the crux of the issue; when you love and care about somebody who’s your best friend – how not to cause them pain,” he says. “Le and Dean are both great people and, unfortunately, going through a tough situation. But they’re doing what needs to be done in as amicable a way as possible.”

Sheremet, a former professional dancer, is attending culinary school in New York. He posted a message on his Twitter page Tuesday: “Back to school kids, first time in 10 years.”

Sources claim that LeAnn is completely paying Dean off with a nice apartment in New York, and most likely a sweet divorce settlement. Dean hasn’t said much for or against LeAnn so far, and I suspect he’ll continue to keep his mouth shut and wait for the payday. As for LeAnn’s future plans, there were some reports last week that she’s already planning on marrying Eddie. Even though those reports came from Star Magazine and In Touch, I tend to believe them. I think LeAnn has fallen for Eddie, and she thinks he’s some kind of “catch”. When you look at it that way, it’s kind of sad.

    See, this is why I REALLY do not like LeAnn and Eddie. They both look like smug homewreckers in all of their pictures together. There is no shame whatsoever.

    At least Sienna Miller looked somewhat annoyed and distraught over the things said about her (And believe me, I hate that witch and can barely stand somewhat complementing her now.)

    If she honestly thinks that she will be his one and only and that they’ll get married and that she alone will be able to keep him from straying….well, let’s just say I certainly can’t wait for the Celebitchy article titled “Eddie Cibrian Falls for CSI co-star”

    ditto, Laura.

    LeAnn doesn’t seem to get that 1)this guy is a serial cheater and 2)relationships that begin in this way RARELY last.

    Predictable! Who has she bluffed ?

  4. mojoman says:

    Home girl needs to wax that fuzzy mustache on the 3rd thumb pic..dayum!

  5. dude says:

    Its sad, It looks like for the first time shes ever been in love. Like truly in love. I understand feelings change for people, you meet someone who is maybe better suited for you. Its not unheard of. I just dont agree w/ the way they handled it. They could of easily filed for divorce & then got together. Not flaunt this affair…then file for divorce. Wrong order guys…now you both look like aholes.

  6. Renee says:

    YES! I was hoping someone else noticed that. She looks like an evil villain about to tie Brandi to the railroad tracks.

  7. fern says:

    What happened to keeping things private and being respectful and sensitive? He must only want privacy when he can’t benefit/profit from the affair. Dumb and Dumber must think that filing for a divorce makes it okay for them to flaunt their affair. Considering how much they lied and tried to deflect from their bad behavior by blaming their spouses, they need to LAY LOW and not leak any details.

    The manner in which these two flaunt their affair is DISGUSTING and these magazines keep rewarding them by calling their actions “romantic”.
    Dumb and Dumber look very proud of themselves don’t they? So we are supposed to think that EC “loves” her because he is hugging/kissing her? NEWS FLASH: These acts of pda mean nothing because he was spotted holding his wife’s hand, eating ice cream with her, smiling and laughing with her, but was cheating on her the whole time. So what we take away from this “romantice trip” is that EC is cheating on LR. EC is looking for his big break and he thinks that he has found it in his affair with LR, that’s why he was really upset about his wife speaking out (and as he proved by showing up with her in Mexico, it had absolutely nothing to do with protecting his kids).

  8. fern says:

    Didn’t Dumber claim to have the best interest of his kid’s at heart? Great job, just what every kid wants to see his father kissing/hugging a woman who takes pleasure in the pain that she causes others. The very same woman who stood on a stage and talked about God. Surely she doesn’t think that her affair with EC is right because it was a “gift from God”? How does she not understand that the words that she spoke on the stage apply to her? Things will work out all right and too bad it will end with EC in another woman’s bed or another woman in her bed with EC. If these magazines stop glorifying the affair or put more emphasis on the other women EC is sleeping with, how fast will EC have “great chemistry” with another co-star?

    Dumber is a lowlife because what father would use his kids to shield himself from the backlash of his public affair? Devoted father, no. Just a COWARD who won’t take responsibility for his actions and free loads off of women.

    I used to love Eddie back in the day, most recently when he took over for my ‘one true love’ Gale Harold on the Fox Series Vanished, but now I have lost all respect for him.

    I know things happen and we can’t help who we fall in love with, but you were a married man and LeAnn was also married. You are both cheaters and no good will come of your ‘relationship’!

    Once a cheater always a cheater, Eddie will cheat on you the same way he cheated on his wife. LeAnn will cheat on you just the way she cheated on her ‘friend’ Deane. Just you wait and see, LeAnn and Eddie, KARMA is a BITCH!

  10. germanspecial says:

    How ironic that he played a cheating bastard on “Ugly Betty”.

    As LeeAnn, well, everyone knows her marriage was a marriage of convenience.

    After all, having a husband who’s gay probably didn’t rock her world.

  11. Really? says:

    So while mommy is standing in line at the grocery store and the kiddies see daddy on the mag with another woman, mommy is supposed to tell them he’s being a GOOD FATHER, right?

    Didn’t “they” say somewhere that he was missing his youngest’s first day of school because he was Mexico “juggling his women?”

  12. fizXgirl314 says:

    awwww, what a lovely couple *barf*

  13. Catherine says:

    She’s too smug for me.

  14. wow says:

    I’m so thoroughly shocked. Yawn.

    Gotta agree with Catherine. And I’ll add that not only is she too smug, but she’s also a liar as well. Great combo.

  15. kim says:

    She married too young imo

  16. Ro says:

    You know what always annoys me about people like this. Not just the fact that they cheated but the idea that as soon as one of them screws the other one over they are going to act like they are completely shocked. I know some people on this site don’t have a problem with cheaters but you have got to admit it takes a true a**hole to leave your wife and have your kids have to read about it in tabloids.

  17. TaylorB says:

    Haha! I was thinking it looked like she was sporting a ‘stache as well.

  18. hatsumomo says:

    Why dosent she go back to being relevant through her voice? She used to be such a beautiful singer…..

  19. DeeDee says:

    Calling all women, all over the land, ONCE AGAIN__

    If he cheats WITH you, he’ll cheat ON you!!! You are not that special!!!

    Jesus, people, will you listen to me?

    She, Amanda Sefried, and Slutty Miller need to start an I wuv married men support group. Maybe Julia Roberts will host.

  20. Deb says:

    Check out the Chicago Sun times article in the entertainment section. Brandi has a team of lawyers. This is going to be ugly. Unfortunately for Leann those photo ops might just bite her and Eddie big time in the butt. Reading between the lines here but I don’t think she’s going for joint custody.

  21. sunseeker says:

    I am sick of reading about the fact that Rimes got maried at 19 years old. So did I, still together after 20 years, it has nothing to do with getting married young , it has to do with the fact that she is a selfcentred egotistical slut. Get divorced but don’t treat your partners like dirt, and humiliate them. Cibrian has two boys and thinks he is a good father, he might be when he is at home, but when has he been at home a wife and two mistresses take a lot of juggling.

  22. Hieronymus Grex says:

    It might be just the way the light is hitting her face, but does it look like she’s growing a girl-stache ?

  23. Hey Sweet Post! I found it on Google. Keep up the great work!
