LeAnn Rimes is denying the claims of Eddie Cibrian's wife that Rimes is stalking him.
"You know what, I’m a classy woman, I’m never ever going to battle anything out in the press," Rimes told People.com at an event Wednesday afternoon. "I would never want to hurt my husband or anyone else with more lies dragged out in the press."
Rimes' rep had called Brandi Glanville's "stalking" accusation “incredibly defamatory.”
In an interview with Us magazine, Cibrian’s wife Glanville, says the singer, 26, refuses to let go of an unhealthy obsession with her husband.
“LeAnn is a stalker,” she said. “She refuses to leave us alone – it is shameful and scary. People are going to say it takes two to tango and I get that, but at some point LeAnn needs to stop asking him to dance.
Us first broke the news of the steamy affair, releasing surveillance video of a romantic tryst between the “Northern Lights” stars that included Rimes sucking on Cibrian’s finger. He has denied any affair, and reportedly changed his number to end the singer’s “constant texting and calling.”
Glanville, who calls’ Rimes behavior “disgusting,” also charges that a later meeting between her husband, 35, and his alleged mistress at a Laker’s Game was all part of Rimes’ grand plan that included tracking Cibrian down.
“LeAnn is so desperate for fame she has left her self-respect in the gutter and doesn’t care who she hurts to get what she wants,” Glanville added. “She’s hurting my family and messing with the wrong mom.
