LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian’s relationship began while the two were married to other people. The actors met and fell in love while working on the film Northern Lights. The two had no choice but to leave their significant others (Rimes was married to Dean Sheremet, and Cibiran was married to former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville) so that they could be together.
Now, several years later, Cibrian’s ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, thinks that it’s only a matter of time before Cibrian leaves Rimes. As the adage goes, a relationship that doesn’t start right, won’t end right.
“I think when the 10-year mark [of their marriage] comes and he leaves her and takes half her stuff, we’ll all be good together because they won’t even be related. If she doesn’t have a kid with him, then we don’t ever have to see her again,” Glanville said during an interview with E! News’ Daily Pop. She gives the couple “three more years” before Cibrian hits the road. “Then he hits 10 years, half of everything is his and then he’s gone,” she said, according to Us Weekly.
Glanville has struggled in her post-divorce relationship with Cibrian. Although the former couple shares two sons (Mason, 13, and Jake, 10), it hasn’t been easy for them to get along. Things have certainly been up and down over the years, and Glanville says that they are in a bit of a rough patch at the moment.

“[Our relationship] is a little rocky right now, I’ll say that. It’s been eight years and you would think that people would mature and be different, but there’s still some craziness happening. It ebbs and flows. Sometimes it’s great, and right now it’s not,” Glanville said.
Glanville has often been at odds with Rimes, who stepped into the “mother” role under Glanville’s nose. Although it seems clear that Cibrian and Glanville want the best for their kids, making adjustments to life with a step-parent wasn’t easy.
Over the years, Glanville has taken plenty of opportunities to take jabs at her ex’s new wife. In fact, back in January, Cibrian spoke out about his ex’s claims that she doesn’t see their sons as often as she would like, according to People Magazine.
“It upsets me. Brandi is lying. 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,” Cibrian said. “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,” he added.
He and Rimes have cared for his sons over the years and have spent time building memories together, despite Glanville’s clear disapproval. Although it has been many years since this all went down, Glanville just does not seem to be over it.
“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,” Cibrian concluded, clearly frustrated with his ex’s relentless antics.
