Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes might be headed for a split if the latest tabloid rumors are true. According to sources, Eddie has been having relations with women other than his wife -- and his wife may already be aware of his straying eyes. Star Magazine reports that Eddie got himself in a spot of trouble over the summer when he sent a questionable text message to the wrong person. The person who received said message? A friend of LeAnn's.

"What time are you picking me up? We are going to meet [in a restaurant] and then take me in your car afterwards because I don't want to be near her," read the alleged message. Of course on first glance, this appears to be something Eddie would say to LeAnn about his ex-wife, Brandi Glanville. However, a friend of LeAnn claims that the text was evidence that he's been meeting up with another woman.

Eddie Cibrian has allegedly been taking at least one woman out to Mexican restaurants, and was once even seen at the gym with her. Sources say that Eddie has been acting strange and that there may be more than one other woman in his life. "He was very nervous, like he had been doing something wrong. There are other girls. I hear about it." An insider revealed that Eddie has even flirted with other women right in front of his wife -- and she doesn't even care.

It's easy for people to believe rumors like this since Eddie cheated on Brandi with LeAnn and you know what they say -- "once a cheater, always a cheater." But would LeAnn hang around if Eddie was really stepping out on her? Would she put up with it? Sources say yes, and the reasons are somewhat surprising. Apparently LeAnn uses Eddie for publicity and their relationship has helped her revamp her career. That, and she "can't be alone."

"She's not somebody who can be alone. I think if she were to meet another guy, then she would dump him. But if she gets pregnant, who knows?"

Do you think Eddie is cheating on LeAnn? Will they split?
