Eddie Cibrian has issued a public appeal to his estranged wife to stop “rehashing” his cheating scandal with Leann Rimes in the press, insisting her bitter comments make it “more difficult for everyone to heal”.
Rimes fell for Cibrian on the set of TV movie Northern Lights last year and their romance hit the headlines when they were caught kissing on camera – while they were still married to their respective spouses.

The singer subsequently split from her husband Dean Sheremet and Cibrian is currently locked in a divorce battle with his estranged wife, Brandi Glanville.

The stars have since gone public with their relationship and Rimes has filed a cease-and-desist notice, accusing Glanville of slander, in a bid to stop her airing her grievances in the public domain.

And now Cibrian has spoken out about his ex, calling for her to move on from the scandal for the sake of their children.

He tells E! News, “As I’ve said before, my children and their well-being are my number one priority. I can’t change the past and I’m truly sorry that people got hurt along the way but not everything reported in the media is reality and continuing to rehash things publicly only makes it more difficult for everyone to heal.

“I hope for the sake of our children we can all move forward and heal privately. I wish their mother nothing but the best.”
