Look, he's a good father, okay? Just leave Eddie Cibrian alone, people!
The handsome actor isn't likely to have it that easy after filing for divorce from wife Brandi Glanville and publicly romancing country star LeAnn Rimes.
Nevertheless, the CSI: Miami star is pleading for privacy in a difficult time and saying he remains committed to his young sons, Mason, 6, and Jake, 2.
"From the outset I made a conscious decision to try and keep this matter private and not discuss it in the press," Cibrian said in a statement. "While my wife and I are dissolving our marriage, we will work together to parent our children."
"I love my boys very much. I want only the best for them and am committed to being a devoted father," the 36-year-old added.
The actor's statement comes after Rimes and Cibrian went public with a pair of recent dates, including a game of golf and a Kings of Leon concert.
Earlier this week, Cibrian formally filed for divorce from Brandi Glanville, citing irreconcilable differences. She reportedly left him earlier this summer.
Glanville has subsequently gone off on him a couple of times to the press, talking about her heartbreak and how she sensed the attraction between her husband and Rimes when they filmed the Lifetime movie Northern Lights.
But Eddie Cibrian won't engage in a war of words.
"I will continue to be respectful and sensitive to this by not doing interviews about this private matter. I wish everyone would do the same," he said.
