LeAnn Rimes is responding to a report in which Brandi Glanville, the wife of Eddie Cibrian, claims that the country star is "stalking" her husband.
Rimes and Cibrian co-starred in the Lifetime movie Northern Lights earlier this year. Right around its premiere, they were lighting up the sheets!
Supposedly. There are rumors it was all a sham.
However, Brandi Glanville bashed Rimes earlier today, saying she was texting and calling Cibrian repeatedly, and when he switched his number to cut off contact with her, made sure she "ran into him" at a recent Lakers basketball game.
While the two definitely were spotted together May 17, LeAnn says the rumors of her stalking Cibrian and seeking publicity are just not true.

"[Brandi Glanville's] comments are incredibly defamatory," a spokesperson for Rimes stated. "While there are always two sides to every story, LeAnn continues to remain above the fray and chooses not to play this out in the press."
Interestingly, Eddie Cibrian has gone on record denying the affair, while Rimes has spoken only vaguely of having recent troubles in her marriage.
Rimes, 26, has been working in Los Angeles, while her husband of seven years, Dean Sheremet, 28, has been in Nashville writing and producing.
"They're still working on their marriage," says a Rimes pal, who adds that the idea that LeAnn is hungry for fame is "extremely disparaging ... To think that someone as successful and accomplished as LeAnn would want this is laughable."
Whose side are you on, Team Brandi or Team LeAnn!
