Leannrimes_290 Considering Eddie Cibrian's wife Brandi Glanville left the actor earlier this week over his affairs — especially the continued one with "Northern Lights" co-star LeAnn Rimes — it shouldn't surprise anyone that it turns out Rimes has separated from her husband, Dean Sheremet, as well.

"LeAnn and Dean have been separated for quite some time now, but they continue to try and work through their relationship," a friend of the singer/actress tells People.

Whether or not Rimes and Cibrian will become an official couple still remains to be seen, but this same friend told People back in March that the affair was not the reason Rimes and Sheremet split.

"There have been issues brewing for months prior to meeting Eddie on the set."
