LeAnn Rimes On Why She Cheated

Singer LeAnn Rimes poured her heart out in an interview for the October issue of Shape magazine (she’s in the cover) where she explained why she cheated.

“I understand why people are disappointed in me, especially since I grew up as America’s sweetheart. I think any relationship is hard to get out of, and I don’t think the way I did it was right,” said the 28-year-old former wife of Dean Sheremet, one of the singer’s backup dancers.

They were married in 2002 when she was only 19. Their marriage lasted more than six years before the singer began a relationship with actor Eddie Cibrian.

Cibrian, 37, who played a lead role in the television series Sunset Beach, was also married at the time the scandal broke out. He was married to Brandi Glanville, whom he has two children, for eight years.

Rimes also said that she has been putting other people in her lives first and that it was the first time she has put herself first.  For Dean, she said that their relationship had been great but believes that it was not a fulfilling marriage for both of them.
