LeAnn Rimes Reveals She Actually Met Hubby Eddie Cibrian Years Before She Thought

LeAnn Rimes Reveals She Actually Met Hubby Eddie Cibrian Years Before She Thought

LeAnn Rimes keeps it cool and casual as she strikes a pose backstage at the SiriusXM Studios on Tuesday (November 6) in New York City.

The 36-year-old singer and actress to talked about her new Hallmark movie, It’s Christmas, Eve, which is set to premiere on Saturday, November 10!

LeAnn recently opened up about how she got engaged to her now husband Eddie Cibrian two years after they first met – or so they thought. It turns out that they actually met long before that, at a fan appreciation event.

“Well we don’t remember meeting each other,” LeAnn explained (via ET). “No, but there is a photo of it, clearly, and it is odd. We both were like, ‘Wait, what?’ I think he was 23, I was 14 at the time, and he was doing Young and the Restless. He found that right after we had worked together. He was just digging through some photos in his garage and found it.”

    She tried to sell this story a few years ago and no one cared then either except her creepy fans who thought it was “romantic” that Eddie would have noticed her when she was 14.

    Isn’t this the SAME story, Jodi Rimes told in 2016 when she was promoting her album? Jodi Rimes is always going out of her way to justify her affair with Eddie, prove that Eddie isn’t cheating on her, and make her relationship with Eddie seem more romantic than it actually is. So for a second year(she told this same story in 2016), Jodi Rimes wants us to believe that Eddie can’t possibly be cheating on her because they were fated to be together. I hope this site remembers this story when Jodi Rimes tells it again in 2020 when she is trying to promote another one of her failed albums.

    Eddie found the photo when he was going through boxes in his garage?The garage that he shared with his wife, Brandi? How far into his affair with Jodi Rimes did this “looking in boxes in a garage” incident occur? Was this BEFORE or AFTER that night Jodi Rimes asked Eddie to lick icing off of her chest? Why was Eddie even in the garage going through boxes of old photos? She makes it sound like Eddie was going through old boxes because he was moving out of the house he shared with Brandi. This story just demonstrates what a horrible person Jodi Rimes truly is.

    If Eddie found the photo of her and him just after they started working together, why did Jodi Rimes wait until 2016 to first tell the story? Since Jodi Rimes is always manically posting old photos of Eddie and has a photo of Eddie when he was a child next to her bed, it’s more than likely that Jodi Rimes was the one who “found the photo in a box in a garage”. I also find it very hard to believe that she forgot that she met Eddie and didn’t realize it until he proposed because didn’t SHE request Eddie for the Lifetime movie? All this story proves is that Jodi Rimes has been stalking Eddie since she was 14.

    Eddie must have been out partying with waitresses last night because Jodi Rimes manically tweeted that her LovEr came to LovE and support her. Remember this is the SAME “LovEr” who cheated on her in Oct 2009 and threatened to sue L &S when they exposed his affair, called her unattractive and a speedbump, won’t touch her unless he is drunk out of his mind or she takes him and his family and friends on expensive vacations, “lost” his kid’s passports when he found out that Spitefire bombed, couldn’t even be bothered to make reservations at Nobu for Stepmother’s Day, and who refused to fly to NY to spend Valentine’s Day with Jodi Rimes. So what did Jodi Rimes buy Eddie to make him appear at her promotions today?

    Too funny. When Jodi Rimes is such a hasbeen that the media completely forgets that she already told the “Leann and Eddie were fated to be together because they met when she was 14 and he was 23 ” story:

    Since the media was too busy covering far more important things(like the shooting in CA, Trump firing Jeff Sessions, and Sarah Sanders lying on Jim) to cover Jodi Rimes’ story about meeting Eddie when she was 14 and he was 23, she paid People Mag to run the story. Jodi Rimes just proves how dumb the media truly is and that she is a hasbeen. The media ran this very same “Leann met Eddie when she was 14″ story in 2016, yet here they are in 2018, acting like it’s the first time they have ever heard it. The story makes Jodi Rimes seem like a stalker. She claims that she forgot that she met Eddie, yet she requested Eddie for the Lifetime movie.

    Jodi Rimes has been doing promotional rounds like the Hallmark movie is a real box office hit. What is o about Jodi Rimes promotional tour is how none of the other actors in the Hallmark movie are out promoting the movie. But then again, Jodi Rimes has something to prove. She has to prove that she is a better actress than Rachel Bilson and a better producer than Rachel’s father because Eddie has feelings for Rachel.

    Jodi Rimes is back to fueling pregnancy rumors. She wore a fake bump under her ill fitting capris on Kelly and Ryan today. Notice how these photos of Jodi Rimes at Sirius look photoshopped? Jodi Rimes needs to wear a bra at all times. Her implants look horrible in that tank top. The potatoe sack pants were a bad choice. For someone who claims that she works out, Jodi Rimes has no muscle definition or curves.

    Jodi Rimes got Eddie extremely drunk today and then she had Kiki take photos of them “kissing” and pretending to dance in the streets. If Jodi Rimes is so confident that HER MAN LovEs her, why does she spend so much time trying to convince people that all is well in their relationship? So where is Jodi Rimes taking Eddie, his friends, and his parents this time because Eddie doesn’t allow Jodi Rimes to post photos like this unless she promised him something huge.

    Jodi Rimes manically posted how much love she received in NYC while doing promotions for her low budget Hallmark movie and from HER MAN. Why is Jodi Rimes making such a big deal about a Hallmark movie, especially when the other actresses and actors in the movie aren’t doing promotions for the movie? Jodi Rimes talks about family, but then she alienates the cast of her low budget Hallmark movie by going on a “Me, me, me” tour in NYC. It’s like she believes that this Hallmark proves that she is a better actress than Rachel Bilson and a better producer than Rachel’s father. Jodi Rimes just needs to divorce Eddie. She is always competing with Eddie’s female co-stars for Eddie’s affection.

    Since Jodi Rimes manically posted that she and HER MAN(Kiki is also in NYC with Eddie and Jodi Rimes, but notice how once again Jodi Rimes left this out because she can’t stand that Eddie won’t go anywhere with her unless Kiki is there with him)are flying out of NYC tonight, so expect hand holding happy couple staged photo-ops at the airports.

    Why is Jodi Rimes so predictable? When she manically tweeted that she and HER MAN where leaving NYC, I said to expect a hand holding happy couple staged photo-op at the airports. I was partially correct, Jodi Rimes did set up a handholding photo-op with HER MAN, but it wasn’t at the hotel. She paid the paps to take photos of her and Eddie loading their bags to the car. In another photo, Eddie is carrying the clothes that Jodi Rimes wore yesterday because Jodi Rimes needs to prove to everyone just how supportive HER MAN and LovEr truly is(see Eddie can’t possibly be cheating on Jodi Rimes because he carried her clothes, right?)I wonder how much Jodi Rimes had to pay Eddie to carry her clothes. Even though Kiki was in NYC with Eddie and Jodi Rimes(in her farewell post, Jodi Rimes thanked Kiki before she thanked Eddie), Jodi Rimes mad4 staged photo-ops outside her hotel this week. Jodi Rimes manic tweets didn’t stop. Once she got to LA, she continued to manically tweet. Since she tweeted about the grocery store, expect a staged handholding photo-op in the parking lot of a grocery store!
