She might not want him, but Eddie Cibrian's wife says LeAnn Rimes can have him.
Brandi Glanville, who called the country songbird a stalker (yet managed to avoid a lawsuit, if not a tongue-lashing), tells Us Weekly that she and Cibrian "have decided to take some time apart."
"I want to do what is best for our children. Eddie and LeAnn deserve each other," she said.
Rimes—who has been married to Dean Sheremet for seven years and who denied mixing it up with Cibrian, her costar in the unfortunately steamy Lifetime movie Northern Lights—has yet to respond to that generous sentiment.
Meanwhile, Cibrian's rep is characterizing the split as a bump in the road.
"Apparently, the press wishes to continue to play out Eddie Cibrian's domestic situation publicly with an unfair flair of tabloid fervor," rep Steve Sauer tells E! News. "
"Eddie is a devoted and loving father first and foremost, and the speed bump he and Brandi are experiencing needs to be worked out privately for everyone's benefit."
Glanville and Cibrian married in 2001 and have two sons together, 6-year-old Mason and 2-year-old Jake.
In March, Cibrian called reports of his alleged affair with Rimes "a fabricated story that is using random snapshots as connective tissue to create a scandalous relationship."
Sort of like how all parties involved used random snapshots to create the facade of a united front when the going got tough.
Perhaps they'll make it over the bump, but if they don't, Eddie and Brandi can join our Big Celebrity Splits gallery.
