LeAnn Rimes' Ex Husband: She Blindsided Me With Affair

We haven’t heard the end of LeAnn Rimes’ dirty affair with Eddie Cibrian! Now her ex-husband Dean Sheremet is speaking up to defend himself and his marriage that fell apart thanks to Rimes.

In a new interview with Us Magazine, Sheremet tells his side of the story, saying he didn’t think there were problems in their marriage.

"Age had very little to do with why we got divorced," he says. "I was very content and satisfied. I put myself on hold to funnel all my creative energy into her career and our marriage. I was willing to make the sacrifices necessary to have a successful marriage and further her career.”

“I knew, and know, her better than anyone in this world,” he adds.

Sheremet also says he had no idea his wife was cheating on him with her Lifetime movie co-star Eddie Cibrian. "I was blindsided and shocked that she of all people would do this to the closest person in her life,” he says.

And that’s not all! Dean goes on to praise his new girlfriend, photographer Sarah Silver, with whom he’s now living in New York City. "I am happy now," Sheremet says. "Sarah is amazing, and I didn't realize what I was missing and how much of myself was being neglected. I am very fulfilled in my life and work. It's a grounding feeling."

Take that, LeAnn! We’re so glad Dean had the guts to come out and tell the world what the real LeAnn is like. She’s a sneaky homewrecker, and people aren’t going to just forget about that easily.
