Despite reports of an affair with her Northern Lights co-star Eddie Cibrian, the couple went into damage control as they put on the display for the paps, kissing each other goodbye.
Usmagazine obtained security camera footage of the country star and Cibrian on an intimate dinner date and has photos of the pair leaving a Beverly Hills hotel together.
“Other than being friends and two actors who were romantically intertwined in a movie-for-television we filmed last fall, there is no truth to the reporting initiated by Us magazine,” Cibrian, who is married with two sons, announced in a statement last week. “It is a fabricated story that is using random snapshots as connective tissue to create a scandalous relationship.”
Rimes also released her own statement about the rumored affair saying, ”This is a difficult time for me and my loved ones, but I appreciate all your continued support. I would like to assure 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. Have faith, Le.”
