Amid reports that he is sleeping with LeAnn Rimes, his married Northern Lights co-star, the married Eddie Cibrian issued a statement to clear the air.
"It is a fabricated story that is using random snapshots as connective tissue to create a scandalous relationship," the recent Ugly Betty guest star said (ironically, his character, Coach Diaz, was also having an affair on the show).
A friend of LeAnn Rimes also says that the country star, 26, and Cibrian, 35 – who is married to model Brandi Glanville and has two sons, Mason, 5, and Jake, almost 2 – aren't in a relationship. Rimes is married to songwriter Dean Sheremet.
Rimes didn't confirm, but certainly didn't deny an affair in a statement issued on her website yesterday. So what gives? Are they hooking up or not?
Well, Us Weekly, which first broke the story, has posted a video of LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian kissing, holding hands and sucking on each other's fingers.
All during a March 7 date at Mosun and Club M in Laguna Beach, Calif.
Twenty-two seconds into the clip, Cibrian arrives and the restaurant and they walk in hand-in-hand. Then they're seated - as seen in the center left of the frame - and proceed to hold hands (36 seconds) and kiss (1:47).
At the 2:10 mark, LeAnn Rimes suggestively sucks on Eddie Cibrian's finger. Yowza. They leave together shortly after. Us claims to have the $95 receipt for their dinner, which was paid for by Cibrian on his credit card and signed by him.
Ouch, Eddie! Follow the jump to see the video for yourself ...
