After a week in which LeAnn Rimes was apparently outed for banging Eddie Cibrian while married to Dean Sheremet, a new rumor has surfaced claiming Rimes was merely her husband's beard. To be more specific, Dean is supposedly gay.
So claims his cousin Pebbles, anyway.
Yes, we're serious. A woman identifying herself as Dean Sheremet's "cousin Pebbles" phoned Michigan's Mojo in the Morning show Friday and dished about their marriage - which they admit is currently in a rough patch - and his sexuality.
LeAnn Rimes's rep responded that "There is no known cousin Pebbles."
Shocking revelation there.
Is Dean Sheremet gay? That's the latest rumor in the LeAnn Rimes cheating scandal. She's supposedly been having a steamy affair with actor Eddie Cibrian (right).
On the radio, so-called "Pebbles" declared that Dean Sheremet "doesn't care" about LeAnn Rimes' affair with Northern Lights co-star Eddie Cibrian because he's gay.
The woman added that Dean Sheremet has "been gay since he was probably five.”
Rimes' rep's response, in full: "Although Dean and LeAnn never knew they had a cousin named Pebbles, they are glad to hear she has come out of the woodwork."
"Dean and LeAnn are also interested in connecting with their other long lost family members: Fred, Wilma, Barney and Bamm-Bamm, along possible others."
Ha, well played, rep of Rimes. This still doesn't explain the video of her with Eddie Cibrian on a steamy date, but it's probably safe to say Pebbles is a fraud.
