LeAnn Rimes cheated on her husband a while back with co-star Eddie Cibrian (who was also married), and now she’s finally speaking out on the whole situation:
“I did one of the most selfish things that I possibly could do, in hurting someone else,” the country superstar says in the new issue of PEOPLE, speaking for the first time about the end of her 7-year marriage last year, following an affair with married actor Eddie Cibrian.
“I take responsibility for everything I’ve done. I hate that people got hurt,” says Rimes. “But I don’t regret the outcome.” Rimes, 27, who is now in a committed relationship with Cibrian, 36 (their respective divorces will be final soon), says they became friends while shooting the TV movie Northern Lights in November 2008, and it wasn’t until several months later that their relationship “tipped over.”
“It was very emotionally driven,” says the singer, whose new single “Swingin’” off her upcoming covers album Lady and Gentlemen is out June 14. “I never once thought what I was doing was okay.”
SMH. She seems pretty happy to be ruining marriages and sh*t, but as long as this heffa is happy, that’s all that matters, right???
