News of LeAnn Rimes' separation from Dean Sheremet saddened friends who had admired their marriage and what they did for each other over seven years.

Alas, her affair with Eddie Cibrian - whose wife, Brandi Glanville, left him as a result - appears to have taken an irreparable toll on Rimes and Sheremet.

Mr. & Mrs. Cibrian

In Nashville, those who knew the couple recall how they never seemed to be apart. Says one friend, "[LeAnn and Dean] were pretty much inseparable here."

The spouses were often spotted together at the gym, dining on the town with friends, dancing at nightclubs and even shopping for LeAnn Rimes' wardrobe.

Dean Sheremet, in fact, is credited with helping his wife – who was 19 when they married – make the transformation from a country girl into a sexy siren.

"When she met Dean, the whole image of who LeAnn Rimes was completely morphed into 'fabulousity,'" says a friend in the music industry.

Sheremet, 28, who choreographed the singer's Chicago-inspired video for "Nothin' Better to Do" in 2007, "saw the potential that was not being tapped."

But sources say it may have been inevitable that they grew apart as they got older. "I don't think it's unusual considering how young they were [when they wed], and the business they're in," says a member of their social circle.

As LeAnn Rimes expanded her career into acting, she spent more time in Los Angeles, while Dean Sheremet, a songwriter, stayed home in Nashville.

Rimes and Sheremet's strong friendship, however, is making it difficult for them to officially split, even as she is spending time with Eddie Cibrian.

It's unclear when – or if – they might seek a divorce "There's still a lot of love and respect between the two of them," says a source close to Sheremet.

At the Deer Valley Music Festival in Utah Saturday night, LeAnn Rimes opened up to the crowd about relationships gone wrong during her performance.

Sort of.

"It is inevitable that sometimes in a relationship, you will have your heart broken," said the singer in a thinly-veiled reference to Dean Sheremet.

"Sometimes you don't do anything, but sometimes you want revenge. Sometimes you don't, and that's when you just leave it in God's hands and know that He will take care of it," she said before breaking into "God Takes Care of Your Kind."

LeAnn Rimes and Dean Sheremet, her husband of seven years announced they are separated last week. She was not wearing a wedding ring on stage.

On Saturday, a source said the two are "leading separate lives...but still in each other's lives as best friends" or something. "They are not divorcing yet, but working though things and taking time apart. While they figure things out."

The separation news comes the same week as LeAnn Rimes' rumored lover, Eddie Cibrian, was left by wife Brandi Glanville because of the Rimes affair.

Months after rumors arose that LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian were having an affair, the country singer says she has separated from her husband, Dean Sheremet.

"LeAnn and Dean have been separated for quite some time now, but they are continuing to try and work through their relationship," a Rimes pal says.

The couple married in 2002, when she was only 19.

News of Rimes and Sheremet's split comes days after Eddie Cibrian's wife, Brandi Glanville, said they were splitting - because of his affair with LeAnn Rimes.

"Eddie is a devoted, loving father first and foremost and the speed bump he and Brandi are experiencing needs to be worked out privately," his manager said.

Eddie Cibrian, who is joining the cast of C.S.I. Miami this fall, denied he was having an affair with Rimes, his co-star in the Lifetime movie Northern Lights.

No one had confirmed they were romantically involved until Glanville's statement earlier this week, even though video footage made it kind of obvious.

In March, a Rimes friend confirmed the singer and Dean Sheremet were having problems in their marriage, but maintained Cibrian was "not the cause," and that "there have been issues brewing for months prior to meeting Eddie on set."

Brandi Glanville has left husband Eddie Cibrian, with whom she has two kids, Mason, 6, and Jake, 2. She has confirmed this, as well as the reason why.

"Eddie and I have decided to take some time apart," says Glanville. "I want to do what is best for our children. Eddie and LeAnn deserve each other."

This is the first public admission that the long-rumored romance even happened - and it comes from her? So much for his affair being a publicity stunt.

In June, Glanville publicly told Rimes to quit stalking her husband. LeAnn denied the stalking, the affair and indignantly accused Brandi of defaming her.

But the affair was clearly taking place.

Amazingly, the final straw for Brandi Glanville came after lovers Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes were caught sneaking around together - last week!

Brandi Glanville and Eddie Cibrian have married eight years.

The pair was spotted together in the early afternoon on Friday - four months after news of their affair first broke - outside the Malibu home of Jeff Berger, a longtime friend of the country singer and her husband, Dean Sheremet.

Sources say Berger has been facilitating meetings between Leann and Eddie at his home for about a month and that Rimes and Cibrian also made use of a rental house on L.A.'s west side. Berger denies he has been enabling an affair.

Rimes and Cibrian co-starred in Lifetime's Northern Lights earlier this year. Right around its premiere, they supposedly began lighting up the bedroom!

Meanwhile, news of Eddie having another affair - with 24-year-old model Scheana Marie Jancan, who has been linked to John Mayer - also just broke.

No word on when that started, or if LeAnn Rimes knows about it, or if she is really divorcing Dean Sheremet, as has been rumored in recent weeks.

Brandi Glanville did not elaborate as to which affair pissed her off more, but it's clear Eddie Cibrian was playing the field these past few months.

LeAnn Rimes and Dean Sheremet, who she married back in 2001, may be on the verge of splitting up, according to new reports published by In Touch Weekly.

Signing autographs for country music fans at the Nashville Convention Center on June 14, the singing star looked as if there was nowhere she’d rather be.

Skin and Bones

But 20 miles away at the couple's house in Franklin, Tenn., her husband, dancer Dean Sheremet, was reportedly not in a good mood at all.

According to an insider close to the couple, LeAnn, 26, has told him that she is ready to file for divorce - and that she’s ready to leave him.

She is said to long for her married Lifetime movie co-star Eddie Cibrian.

“Dean is completely distraught and heartbroken,” says an insider.

Rimes and Cibrian were tied to one another earlier this year in a cheating scandal that many believed was merely a PR stunt for their movie.

However, just last month, Cibrian's wife, Brandi Glanville, bashed Rimes for "stalking" her husband and implied she was obsessed with him.

LeAnn responded that she is no stalker, laughed off the accusation and said that Brandi was defaming her in a shameless bid for attention.

But are LeAnn and Dean headed down the road to divorce? It's not the first time the lovebirds' relationship has hit a rough patch. Stay tuned.

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.

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!

Eddie Cibrian cut ties with his Lifetime movie costar LeAnn Rimes two months ago - after their alleged steamy affair was exposed - but his wife, Brandi Glanville, says the country star can't let go of her obsession with her husband.

"LeAnn is a stalker," Glanville says bluntly. "She refuses to leave us alone - it is both shameful and scary. People are going to say it takes two to tango and I get that, but at some point LeAnn needs to stop asking him to dance."

Brandi Glanville alleges that LeAnn Rimes (who was caught, on video, out on a date with Eddie Cibrian in March) intentionally tracked down her husband at the L.A. Lakers-Houston Rockets NBA playoff game back on May 17.

That incident was a couple of weeks after Eddie changed his phone number to end what Brandi called LeAnn's "constant texting and calling."

Glanville, a model, insists she's not a scorned wife: I'm a happy wife fighting for what I have," adds the mother of Mason, 6, and Jake, 2.

Eddie Cibrian, Brandi Glanville

Rumors that Eddie Cibrian was doing LeAnn Rimes surfaced in March, and Brandi Glanville seems to admit as much, but all seems peachy between the two now.

The wife of Eddie Cibrian says the chief motivation of LeAnn Rimes - herself married to Dean Sheremet - and her "disgusting" behavior is the limelight.

"LeAnn is so desperate for fame she has left her self-respect in the gutter and doesn't care who she hurts to get what she wants," Brandi charges.

"She's hurting my family and messing with the wrong mom."

A rep for LeAnn Rimes did not comment on her client's alleged affair with Cibrian or the stalking rumors, but a source close to the star says:

"Eddie and Brandi are both on the record on this and LeAnn has kept quiet, so what does that tell you about who is after fame and press?"

Mmm. Probably not the smoothest move ... rumored, married (to other people) lovers LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian "ran into each other" at a bar inside the Staples Center during halftime of the L.A. Lakers-Houston Rockets game yesterday.

Hey, it was already a blowout by then, so what else did they have to do? Somehow, TMZ snapped a pic of them hanging together, which you can see below ...

In March, Us Weekly outed LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian, who are married to Dean Sheremet and Brandi Glanville, respectively, as having a secret, torrid affair.

This coincidentally broke right as their Lifetime movie, Northern Lights, was making its debut, leading some skeptics to ponder if it was a PR-motivated sham.

If that's the case, it was a well-orchestrated one, as just two months ago, Cibrian and Rimes were spotted kissing, cuddling and sucking on one another's fingers during a rather steamy date at Mosun and Club M in Laguna Beach, Calif.

Eddie Cibrian issued a statement calling rumors of the affair "lies," while Rimes admitted she was going through a "tough time" with Sheremet, her husband of seven years, but didn't confirm or deny a relationship with Cibrian.

The pair has not been spotted together since... until this weekend!

LeAnn Rimes and Jessica Simpson seemed to put the past behind them on the set of their promotional ad for the Academy of Country Music Awards.

The country singers crossed paths years ago, when Simpson was dating Days of Our Lives star Jensen Ackles, who apparently cheated on her with Rimes.

Simpson called it her "first heartbreak" on an episode of Newlyweds. Rimes allegedly did some cheating of her own last week, as her affair with Eddie Cibrian, her hot co-star in Northern Lights, was exposed (if it's not a huge sham, that is).

But while shooting the promo video - which spoofs the NCAA Final Four - on February 11, the two goofed around while getting glamorous alongside fellow singers Kellie Pickler and Julianne Hough (yes, the Dancing with the Stars hottie).

"Jessica has a mouth guard, and I have an arm band," Rimes says. "It's really hysterical to see us try to walk and be sexy with all this basketball gear on!"

In the video, Jessica Simpson - whose fat pictures caused quite a stir earlier this winter - approaches Rimes, saying, "This is gonna be a big weekend!"

Rimes responds: "I know! We better start planning."

The ACM Awards will Sunday, April 5 at 8 p.m. Here's a look behind the scenes of the promo footage with Jessica, LeAnn, Julianne and Kellie ...

Is LeAnn Rimes patching things up with hubby Dean Sheremet?

Was there ever anything to patch up, or was her affair a sham?

LeAnn Rimes, Eddie Cibrian Picture

Whether she's in damage control mode or just moving on with life, the singer and actress was definitely seen sucking face with her husband in public yesterday ...

LeAnn and Dean have been married for seven years.

It has only been a few days since some scandalous gossip and video hit the Internets, allegedly showing Rimes kissing her really hot Lifetime movie co-star Eddie Cibrian.

With their movie airing last Sunday, the alleged LeAnn Rimes affair came out of nowhere a few days prior, followed by a non-denial by Rimes and a video of the two on a secret date (supposedly). It sort of reeks of a big publicity stunt to us.

As for rumors that Dean Sheremet is gay, and LeAnn is just his beard, his cousin Pebbles probably doesn't know what she's talking about. Look at the hot pic above.
