Leann Rimes and her former costar Eddie Cibrian have been battling rumors of an affair for months and it seems as though the gossip has taken its toll on both of the stars’ marriages.
We’re not sure if it’s a crazy coincidence or incredible timing but both Leann Rimes and Eddie Cibrian have announced they are separating from their respective partners.
Leann and Dean have supposedly been separated (and living in different homes) for quite some time while Cibrian’s wife (and mother of his two children) announced this week that she was taking a break from her husband because of the alleged affair.
“Eddie and I have decided to take some time apart,” Brandi Glanville (Cibrian’s wife) said in a statement. “I want to do what is best for our children. Eddie and LeAnn deserve each other.”
Just days after Cibrian confirmed his separation Leann confirmed that she and Dean – who had been married for over 7 years – had been separated for a while as well.
There’s no word on whether Eddie and Leann plan to pursue a relationship together now that both of their relationships have come to an end but the two stars have been spending time together over the past few weeks.
Wonder how long it will be before they publicly announce their relationship? It took Jon Gosselin just 22 days – wonder if Leann and Eddie can beat that?
