Even though she’s not proud of what she did, LeAnn Rimes blames the age for her failed marriage. Her ex-husband, Dean Sheremet denies it.
After nearly eight-year marriage to Dean Sheremet fell apart due to her affair with Eddie Cibrian and more, LeAnn Rimes told in the October issue of Shape magazine that she regrets her actions.
“I understand why people are disappointed in me, especially since I grew up as America’s sweetheart. I think any relationship is hard to get out of, and I don’t think the way I did it was right.”
“I did one of the most selfish things that I possibly could do, in hurting someone else”
She also points to getting married young as the reason for the split. “It wasn’t a fulfilling marriage for either of us,” she tells Shape. “As we got older, we grew apart.”
Her ex-husband, Dean Sheremet, is upset she used their young age as a reason for them to get divorced and claims it’s not true.
“Age had very little to do with why we got divorced,” he told US Weekly. “I was very content and satisfied. I put myself on hold to funnel all my creative energy into her career and our marriage. I was willing to make the sacrifices necessary to have a successful marriage and further her career.”
Dean also said he couldn’t believe that LeAnn, 28, cheated on him with actor, Eddie Cibrian.
“I knew, and know, her better than anyone in this world,” he said, adding, “I was blindsided and shocked that she of all people would do this to the closest person in her life.”
Dean also found new love in a photographer named Sarah Silver – they are living together in New York City.
After finalizing her divorce in December, LeAnn Rimes has moved in with Cibrian. But living with Eddie Cibrian’s two children can be “quite chaotic”.
Eddie Cirbrian moved in with LeAnn earlier this summer. He shares custody of Mason, 7, and Jake 3, with his ex-wife Brandi Glanville.
“I went from being by myself to having two kids in the house. It’s really amazing. They’re really incredible,” she told People magazine on her 28th birthday, celebrated at Tabu in Las Vegas, last week.
Talking about her age she said: “I’m actually one of those strange people that actually enjoys getting older. My age was made such a big deal out of when I was little, so I always wanted to get older. I’m still kind of in that frame of mind. Maybe when I hit 30 that will change.”
But on the subject of Cibrian’s kids, his ex-wife, Brandi Glanville isn’t happy after finding out her 7-year-old son Mason had to go to the emergency room over the weekend. As a result, she has called the singer a bad parent.
Rimes had Tweeted about the incident. “Flew home for 5 hrs to see Eddie & the lil one’s and ended up in the ER!” Rimes wrote. “Everybody’s fine, just a minor kiddo accident. Boys will be boys!”
Glanville replied about her son’s injury: “All I know is I didn’t get a phone call,” she said. “Poor choice. Bad parenting.”
She added, “I don’t know how exactly it happened, but Mason told me LeAnn had oil on her hardwood floors and he fell.”
“Eddie didn’t bother to call me and I showed up to Mason’s soccer game that day only to get a text from Eddie afterward saying Mason wouldn’t be playing since he was in the ER all morning.”
She continued on to speak about her dissatisfaction.
“I’m disappointed in their decision. I’m the mother of these two boys and if we’re going to co-parent, we have to do that together. It’s not call me after.”
Meanwhile Rimes has been online defending herself.
“To be really honest, it’s not her place to tell me how to be,” Rimes wrote. “I respect her as their mom, but she has to understand they’re in my life. I can talk about my life just like she can take about her’s.
“Just so you know, she has never spoken to me. This IS my life too and they are in it 50% of the time…I’ve stepped into a very tough, but rewarding role…I treat those boys like they are my own because that’s how I love.”
Also faced with accusations by her fans, that she’s trying to replace their mother, LeAnn replied that she is part of their life too.
“Please remember those ‘boys’ have a Mother,” the fan wrote. “It seems you don’t give credit to that. Hapnd to me not a good feeling.”
Rimes Tweeted back, “I do, but it doesn’t mean I can’t share our happiness. Please remember I’m a part of their lives too. Seems people don’t give credit to that.”
