LeAnn Rimes sits down with “Entertainment Tonight” to talk about her controversial relationship with husband Eddie Cibrian, which started as an affair while they were both married to other people. Rimes also talks about new album “Spitfire,” which has several infidelity-themed tracks on it.
“‘What Have I Done’ is one of the first songs that I wrote for the record, before anything was actually starting to happen [between Eddie and myself],” says Rimes. “It was written about a friend of mine, but I didn’t realize I was writing it for myself at the time … It was my subconscious talking and I didn’t know yet.”
“[Eddie] actually heard the song when I wrote it and, actually, he knew what it was about before I did. He knew I was feeling feelings. I’m not sure what those were that he knew. It’s a very complicated situation,” says Rimes.
When asked if she worries about Cibrian ever cheating on her, Rimes says, “I would be ignorant to say, and everyone else would think I am a liar if I didn’t say yes, and I have at times.”
But she admits he’s had those feelings about her as well.
“Speaking for him, I would actually say that’s creeped into his [mind]…I think we’ve been very honest and open with that to each other and our conversations about it have only made me understand how much he actually cares, as much as I do, about being faithful to each other,” says Rimes.
“Spitfire” is coming out later this spring. Will you be picking up Rimes’ new album?
