Actor Eddie Cibrian is breaking his silence in wake of his bitter divorce from his estranged wife Brandi Glanville and scandalous affair with country pop star LeAnn Rimes. This past Monday, the CSI: Miami star filed papers in Los Angeles Superior Court to end his seven year marriage to the former model.
Now, in a statement released by Cibrian Thursday, the actor says: “From the outset I have made a conscious decision to try and keep this matter private and not discuss it in the press. While my wife and I are dissolving our marriage, we will work together to parent our two children,” Cibrian continued. “I love my boys very much. I want only the best for them and am committed to being a devoted father. I will continue to be respectful and sensitive to this issue by not doing interviews about this ongoing private matter. I wish everyone would do the same.”
Cibrian and Glanville have two boys, 6-year-old Mason and 2-year-old Jake.
In the past several days, Cibrian and Rimes have gone public with their relationship: playing golf and attending a concert in Los Angeles.
Rimes is currently separated from her husband, 28-year old Dean Sheremet.
Cibrian, 35, and Rimes, 26, reportedly starting having an affair after meeting on the set of the Lifetime movie, Northern Lights.
