In advance of an Us Weekly cover story that claims she's having an affair, LeAnn Rimes posted a message on her Web site on Wednesday (March 18) about the "difficult time" she's facing. The Us Weekly issue, which indicates she's having an affair with actor Eddie Cibrian, hit newsstands Wednesday. Rimes and Cibrian co-star in a new Lifetime movie, Nora Roberts' Northern Lights, which debuts Saturday (March 21). "This is a difficult time for me and my loved ones, but I appreciate all your continued support," she writes. "I would like to assure all of you that this [her Web site] is a place for you to hear things directly from me and, as you all know, not everything in our lives is always black and white." Rimes married Dean Sheremet in 2002. Cibrian has been married to model Brandi Glanville since 2001. After the news of the Us cover story, Rimes appeared during a previously-scheduled interview segment on Live With Regis & Kelly, noting, "Everything's great. There's rumors all the time." She added, "Things pass, life happens. You know, everything people read is not ... as easy as black and white. That's what it is. I let it roll off my back most of the time." Later Wednesday, Cibrian provided a statement to Access Hollywood to deny the rumor. "Other than being friends and two actors who were romantically intertwined in a movie-for-television we filmed last fall, there is no truth to the reporting initiated by Us magazine," he said. "It is a fabricated story that is using random snapshots as connective tissue to create a scandalous relationship."
