LeAnn Rimes is finally speaking out. She’s been in the news all of last year for all the wrong reasons. Her seven year marriage to Dean Sheremet ended with her stating, “After much thoughtful mutual consideration, Deane and I have agreed to move forward with dissolving our marriage. 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.” Then came the backlash due to her affair with the married actor, Eddie Cibrian.
The country star opened up about all the drama saying, “I did one of the most selfish things that I possibly could do, in hurting someone else. I take responsibility for everything I’ve done. I hate that people got hurt. But I don’t regret the outcome.” Rimes and Cibrian are very much together and their respective divorces will be finalized soon. They met while filming the TV movie Northern Lights in November 2008. Rimes says that it wasn’t till several months later that their relationship “tipped over” revealing, “It was very emotionally driven. I never once thought what I was doing was okay.”
