September 2, 2009 — Yesterday, LeAnn Rimes posted the following message on her website, answering the ongoing question of "Will they or won't they divorce?"
"After much thoughtful mutual consideration, Deane [sic] and I have agreed to move forward with dissolving our marriage. This decision was amicable and we remain committed and caring friends with great admiration for one another. Thank you so much for all of your continued love and support – it is deeply appreciated."
LeAnn and Dean Sheremet married in 2002 and seemed to have a happy union. When rumors of divorce began swirling after LeAnn was spotted with the co-star of her early 2009 TV Movie, "Northern Lights," Eddie Cibrian, LeAnn posted to fans on her website: "This is a difficult time for me and my loved ones, but I appreciate all your continued support. I would like to=2 0assure all of you that this is a place for you to hear things directly from me and as you all know, not everything in our lives is always black and white."
In July, she was spotted in public without her wedding ring, and People magazine indicated LeAnn and Dean were living apart. Meanwhile, Eddie Cibrian's wife, Brandi Glanville, told Us Weekly that she had left Eddie, saying Eddie and LeAnn "deserve each other."
Just before LeAnn's most recent announcement, she and Eddie were spotted vacationing in Mexico.
