Eddie Cibrian’s wife has left him after months of speculation that the actor is having an affair with singer LeAnn Rimes, reports US Weekly.

“Eddie and I have decided to take some time apart,” Brandi Glanville says. “I want to do what is best for our children. Eddie and LeAnn deserve each other.”

Married in 2001, the couple has two sons, Mason, 6, and Jake, 2.

Cibrian, 36, and Rimes, 26, were accused of having an affair back in March, after meeting on the set of the Lifetime movie ‘Northern Lights.’ The married costars denied the allegations at the time.

In June Glanville slammed Rimes in the tabloids: “LeAnn is a stalker,” said Glanville. “She refuses to leave us alone–it is shameful and scary.”

But it looks like Cibrian may have been courting the attention: He and Rimes were caught together again on July 17th.

His rep issued a statement to E! News:

“Apparently, the press wishes to continue to play out Eddie Cibrian’s domestic situation publicly with an unfair flair of tabloid fervor. Eddie is a devoted and loving father first and foremost, and the speed bump he and Brandi are experiencing needs to be worked out privately for everyone’s benefit.”

In happier Cibrian news, he recently joined the cast of ‘CSI: Miami‘ as a series regular.
