I guess LeAnn Rimes wasn’t satisfied ruining Eddie Cibrian’s marriage, because now she’s complicating custody issues between her man and her ex, too. Damn. Never really pegged LeAnn Rimes to be the kinda girl who’s OK making a kid miserable on his birthday, but it’s foolish to act surprised about anything these days.
The drama started when LeAnn told Eddie that she didn’t want his ex-wife, Brandi Gianville, to celebrate their son Jake’s birthday together because it would make her uncomfortable. Bitchy, right? Brandi spoke to E! Online about the whole thing and the lady didn’t hold back a bit:
“Eddie and I had planned to do something together and small for Jake’s upcoming birthday on April 15th. [Eddie] has changed his mind. He is now saying I can’t see Jake on his birthday because it falls on his custodial day and it would make LeAnn uncomfortable.
I have been so cooperative with Eddie and LeAnn for the sake of my children. I even went and signed and notarized a document saying they could take my kids out of the country to Mexico on vacation. I wouldn’t want to deprive them of such a great opportunity.
I have already spent Christmas Eve and Christmas morning alone, missing my children, and crying because I have no family near by… Jake is my son, not Leann’s. He should be with both his parents on his birthday.
Eddie seems to care more about LeAnn than what is best for our kids. He doesn’t even come to Mason’s baseball games on my days because LeAnn doesn’t want him around me.”
You know me by now, right guys? Normally I’d put this Brandi character on blast for taking this to the press, but this statement doesn’t read to me like she’s seeking petty revenge or publicity. It reads more to me like she’s a newly-single and not by choice mother who wants to protect her kids but the bratty woman that stole her husband away from her isn’t making it easy.
Let’s hope that this information being public shames LeAnn in to loosening up. She’s a cheater, she married a cheater, she’s got to live with that. If anything, his ex-wife is the only woman she should be comfortable letting Eddie around. “Been there, done that”, you know? MmmmHmmm,
