Proving once and for all they’re no longer camera shy, hunky actor Eddie Cibrian and country cutie LeeAnn Rimes stepped out in style Monday night in West Hollywood.
The charismatic couple was spotted leaving Katsuya restaurant after dark. At first, the pair tried to leave the Japanese eatery through a side door, but they apparently changed their minds and left through the front entrance.
The CSI Miami star refused to speak out his tangled love life, but earlier Monday, Cibrian appeared on The Rachael Ray Show, and broke his silence about being a tabloid target since news broke of his affair with Rimes.
When Ray asked about his estranged wife Brandi Granville’s very public attacks on him, Cibrian said he’s opted to take the high road and stay quiet. “I don’t think it’s very conducive to play anything out privately publically. It’s very hurtful. Unfortunately, you get only one side of a very complicated story.”
Ray also asked about the unwanted media attention is impacting his two sons with Granville.
Said Cibrian: “I tried to shield them as much as possible. My philosophy is to try to insulate them so that they are not subject to anything regarding the business or anything of a tabloid nature.”
Cibrian and Rimes met earlier this year on the set of the Lifetime movie Northern Lights and reportedly began a torrid affair. They were both married at the time, but are now both divorcing their respective spouses.
