Tuesday, September 1, 2009
– After months of allegations and separation, LeAnn Rimes said Tuesday on her web site that she is getting divorced. Rimes, who is getting divorced from Dean Sheremet, has allegedly been having a relationship with actor Eddie Cibrian.
"After much thoughtful mutual consideration, Deane and I have agreed to move forward with dissolving our marriage," Rimes said on her web site. "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."
Rimes married Sheremet in 2002, a year after meeting at an awards show at which he was a dancer. She co-starred with Cibrian in the television film "Northern Lights." Rumors have floated for months that the two were having an affair. The two have been seen together golfing.

And it will be bordering on a criminal act - thievery of the first order - if she doesn't sweep every award country music has to offer with her latest. For most of the bulk of the new millennium every Rimes album has been a treat. ...
