Dirty Dog Diaries: Eddie Cibrian Was Too Broke For Child Support, But Not LeAnn Rimes’ $85K Engagement Rock

- By Bossip Staff

We wanted to feel these two homewreckers and their “you can’t help who you fall in love with” crap. But this is ridiculous.

How do you ask your ex for a break on child support and flip that on a rock for your new broad?!

In an exclusive interview, model Brandi Granville has admitted the timing “wasn’t obviously the best” and said her relationship with Eddie and LeAnn Rimes had deteriorated in recent months. She also revealed that while LeAnn got the expensive ring, she has to give BACK money from her divorce settlement.

“Look, I don’t mind that he got her a ring but the timing wasn’t obviously the best and the truth is the communication is not great right now,” Brandi told RadarOnline.com.

“I just want to get on with my life and to move forward but it is really tough at times because everything has been so very public.”

The pair got engaged over the holidays with LeAnn proudly flashing her platinum bling, featuring a 5-carat oval diamond, set in rose gold fleur-de-lis.

Ironically, it happened at the same time as Cibrian’s child support payments were slashed because the former CSI: Miami star has not worked a lot as an actor in the past six months.

So much so, Brandi will also have to pay her ex some money back, under the terms of their divorce agreement, while finding a new home too.

That’s despite Eddie driving a Porsche and living in a lavish Calabasas abode!

Brandi and Eddie share joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s two sons Mason, 7, and Jake, 3.

“Ideally, I would like to have a better relationship with Eddie and LeAnn but that has not been possible recently but I’m determined to keep going,” Brandi told RadarOnline.com.

“The lease is up on my current home and I will be looking for a new place to live shortly while also trying to take care of my sons.

“I’m looking for work and trying to get my real estate license but it is a gradual process – I’m not saying Eddie is a bad guy and he is a great father but I just wish it all could be a lot easier.”

SMH. There can’t be too much good in the cards for Eddie and LeAnn and their built-on-the-trife-life marriage.

    Is anyone really surprised? Just like Jessica Simpson, LeAnn bought that ring herself. Maybe she can pay Eddie’s child support.

  • if anything be noble

    Should I be searching for a Black man inside her engagement ring because I don’t see what Leann Rimes has to do with Black people. Yall could’ve at least made it like Where’s Waldo and photoshopped pictures of Antoine Dobson waving in the back or thrown random Black people in the story…. “With a Colin Powell colored ring, Rimes smiled for the camera.” ….”Walking through a foggy shadow shaped like Morgan Freeman’s head, the couple was whisked off to Mexico…” Smh

    My friend Vanessa, a 25 yrs lady, has announced her wedding with a m’illionaire young man Ronald who is the CEO of a MNC. It’s amazing, she said she just posted her profile on a m’illionaire d’ating s’ite called ———-RichMatchmaker. ℃○M——– – and received his chat invitations a few days later. Then, everything went so well that I can’t believe it’s true! Every love story will unfold on it’s own..——-

    She paid for that ring herself. LMAO!! SMDH. He ain’t paid for nothing the most he didn was went with her when she picked it out.

  • Ms.Brilly

    That’s kind of shady but without knowing how much the support payments had originally been it’s hard to comment. For example: if the payments had been like $100k a month and got slashed to $75k that’s one thing but if they had been $100k and he cried broke and got it down to like $10k then turned around and got the ring that’s something different.

    paid for her own ring
