Eddie Cibrian Isn't Having Brandi Glanville's Feud with LeAnn Rimes

By Jason Marshall


It's a war of words with no end in sight.

ENGAGED!! 'RHOA' Star Demetria McKinney Is Off The Market

Two days after news broke that Brandi Glanville took issue with LeAnn Rimes' apparent appropriation of her kids, Eddie Cibrian has stepped firmly into the fight.

In an interview with People, the 42-year-old actor, and father of two, says that his ex-wife's claims are nothing but a fictionalized cry for attention. 

"Brandi is lying," Cibrian suggests after saying the whole issue "upsets" him.

"She lies for the sake of publicity and she has to bring in my wife unfortunately for it to make headlines. It isn't fair. She never asked LeAnn to not post pictures of the kids during the holidays, ever. They don't even talk!" 

#ICYMI: Glanville stated in an interview recently that she had specifically asked the country singer not to share Instagram pics of her kids when they happened to be celebrating holidays with their dad and stepmom. She also made sure to mention that Rimes might not understand where she's coming from, because the "Can't Fight the Moonlight" singer doesn't have any children of her own.

And while the whole issue seems to revolve around a mother who's distraught over not spending special occasions with her kids, the LeAnn & Eddie star doesn't seem to relate to her perception of events.   

"She sees the kids as much as I do. She was with them for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. And I miss my kids tremendously when they're not with me, but I don't ask her not to post pictures." 

Eddie is also keen to point out that his kids - sons Mason, 12, and eight-year-old Jake - have adjusted rather well to their new-ish normal.

"The kids have lived in a household with LeAnn and me longer than they ever lived in a household with me and Brandi. This is normal. "They're well-adjusted. But it saddens me that they can get on the Internet and get influenced by this negativity that only comes from one side. That's really disheartening." 

That being said, he insists that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has no plans to stop playing the victim. 

"Brandi's play is to keep this going, and I'm shocked that the press still takes the bait," says the actor. "It's unfortunate. She won't [leave us alone]. One day, I hope it all goes away, because it's been long enough. It's unfair for LeAnn," he adds. "What has she done? Nothing, but love the children."

The children, he's quick to remind, being the most important piece of this very complicated puzzle.
