Sources say Eddie Cibrian is pissed that news of his engagement to LeAnn Rimes has spread. The reason? He and his annoying fiancee wanted to cash in by making this announcement via a tabloid exclusive.
But Rimes is taking the couple's anger a step further, claiming she and Cibrian are NOT betrothed and taking major issue with E! News, who first reported the story.
"I've about had it with the lack of "reporting," she Tweeted yesterday. "The fact that our "engagement" has spread so furiously over the past 24 hours off of an E News article that is 150% untrue just shows you the lack of credible "sources" they seem to find and build a story around."
E! News, meanwhile, says it spoke with a family insider who confirmed the engagement and also phoned LeAnn's publicist, who did not deny the claim.Rimes goes on to make it sound like an engagement is imminent, but as multiple outlets report, clearly wants to make the announcement herself and find a new way to rake in money since her music career fell flat on its face years ago.
"Eddie and I are beyond happy and in love and look forward to one day sharing such private news with you all and hopefully will be able to enjoy it privately and share it with our family and friend's [sic] before the world knows (contrary to reports on our intentions)."
The hilarious questions now remain: How long will Rimes and Cibrian withhold this news, and to what tabloid will they sell it out?
