LeAnn Rimes shared her thoughts on her relationship with husband Eddie Cibrian on Thursday’s Ellen Degeneres show. The country singer admitted their affair, which started when the two were on the set of Northern Lights, “could have been handled better.”
Rimes, who is stepmom to Jake, 4, and Mason, 8, said: “Obviously, Eddie and I made decisions that were not necessarily the right ones, but it obviously brought us to a place where we are now. And we’re happy, and we’re married and we always put his kids first and take his kids into consideration with everything that we do. So sometimes you want to scream. But you don’t. We’ve learned to let it go, and laugh at it at the end of the day.”
As for the tabloid rumors, she said some of the reports were true.
“It happens,” Rimes said of the way she and Cibrian got together. “I will always say, it could’ve been handled a lot better, but maybe we both didn’t have the tools at the time to do it properly. But I’ve learned a lot, and I’m so proud.
“Obviously we all make choices that lead us into a different path here and there. You learn from those, or either you don’t. … I think we’ve both come to a really good place in our lives. Right now I’m really at peace, which is nice.”
