Eddie Cibrian has hit back at rumors his marriage to LeAnn Rimes is on the rocks.
The 40-year-old actor, who has been married to the 31-year-old singer since April 2011, insists that all is well between them and their relationship is "very functional."
"[The rumors have] been going on for so long. They're just absurd, and to give any validity to any of these things, it's crazy," the "Best Man Holiday" star told Entertainment Tonight.
Eddie, who has two sons, Mason, nine, and Jake, six, with his ex-wife Brandi Glanville, also opened up about the couple's upcoming VH1 reality show. "We have such a great marriage, very functional and we just decided to do a show to screw that all up," he joked.
Eddie and LeAnn went public with their relationship after it was revealed that they began an affair after starring in their 2009 Lifetime movie, Northern Lights, but rumors recently began swirling that they are headed for a $50 million divorce and Eddie has been reaching out to his ex-wife. "Brandi's always happy to let him unburden himself to her," an insider said.
Brandi Glanville has hit out at her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian for not being able to get in contact with their children.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star bashed the actor on Twitter for preventing her from speaking to their sons, Mason, nine, and Jake, five, while they were staying with him and his wife LeAnn Rimes. The 40-year-old blonde author expressed her frustration in a message to Eddie on Twitter on Monday night writing, "Ive been trying to get a hold of my kids 4 over an hour no response to my calls, emails or messages. Maybe twitter will work (sic)."
The tweet provoked a defensive response from LeAnn, who soon wrote, "Funny, she just got off the phone w/ them. Sorry, we were doing baths, homework & dinner. All good! The phone rang, I picked it up. Never saw this til after. All you gotta do is call."
LeAnn Rimes sent Brandi Glanville flowers for Mother's Day on Sunday.
The "Can't Fight The Moonlight" hitmaker - whose relationship with Brandi has been strained, due to her affair with her now husband Eddie Cibrian while he was still married to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star - made the kind gesture suggesting she wants to burying the hatchet.
Brandi, who has two sons, Mason, nine, and Jake, five, with Eddie, thanked the 30-year-old singer on Twitter, writing, "I thanked @leannrimes on twitter4 my flowers (Sic)."
LeAnn Rimes has admitted she likes rehab.
The "Can't Fight The Moonlight" hitmaker - who recently completed a 30-day stint in an in-patient facility for stress and anxiety - loves mulling over her problems with a therapist and is hopeful the treatment is working.
"I've been in therapy my whole life. I like going. I like being able to have that third-party input and someone to listen that has nothing to do with your life. Everyone has an opinion of how I am and how I should be, and now I'm focusing on how I want to be," LeAnn told The Sun.
The 30-year-old country singer is thought to have developed anxiety because of negative comments from online trolls about her relationship with her husband Eddie Cibrian, who she began a fling with while they were both married to other people. "I think it's really hard to deal with Twitter and Facebook and all these social media outlets. And it's hard to take it day after day of reading and seeing things that someone you don't even know says about you. As much as you said you don't want it to penetrate, it does, because you're human," she reflected.
LeAnn Rimes has successfully completed her stint in rehab.
The 30-year-old singer had been allowed to leave her facility - where she had been receiving treatment for anxiety and stress - on regular occasions to maintain her touring commitments, but has now finished her time there and returned to her family. "Yes she has finished her stay at the treatment facility," her representative said.
LeAnn is glad her time has completed and tweeted her joy at going to see Batman Live with her family. "Channeling my inner Cat Woman for Batman for Batman Live... Incredible show!! Batman was fab! Family time. (sic)" she wrote on Twitter.
LeAnn is believed to have checked into rehab after developing anxiety that her husband Eddie Cibrian - whom she embarked on a relationship with while they were both married to other people - was cheating on her. "LeAnn has had major insecurity issues since she first got together with Eddie. She's been stressed about always being called a home-wrecker and also worried that Eddie is cheating on her. She's been on a downward spiral," a source said.
LeAnn Rimes is "worried" husband Eddie Cibrian is cheating on her.
The "Can't Fight the Moonlight" hitmaker - who checked into rehab to deal with "anxiety and stress" late last month, one day after her 30th birthday - has reportedly got
"major insecurity issues" and is feeling "stressed" about still being branded a home-wrecker for embarking on a relationship with Eddie in 2009 while she was married to chef Dean Sheremet and he was wed to Brandi Glanville.
"LeAnn has had major insecurity issues since she first got together with Eddie. She's been stressed about always being called a home-wrecker and also worried that Eddie is cheating on her. She's been on a downward spiral," a friend of the couple told Us Weekly.
But LeAnn has surprisingly gained support from Brandi - whom Eddie eventually left to be with the 30-year-old singer in 2009 after they met on the set of TV movie Northern Lights - who hopes her former love rival finds "what she is looking for" in the 30-day in-patient facility.
LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian have renewed their wedding vows.
The country singer and her partner decided to celebrate the nuptials - which took place a year ago - by saying them one more time, and she took to Twitter to reveal the news.
"Renewed our vows today ... it's incredible to thank each other for the past year as husband and wife. Here's to another year!(sic)" she wrote.
The pair then enjoyed a day out by the sea, although LeAnn did end up accidentally injuring herself in the process: "Eddie and I went climbing on the rocks in the ocean yesterday to see the thousands of crabs. I did not realize til now just how dab I kicked a rock with two of my toes...OUCH(sic)"

LeAnn Rimes has had a tribute to her husband tattooed on her foot. The country singer has had the words "The only one that matters," inked on the top of her right foot after being inspired by a conversation she had with spouse Eddie Cibrian.
"I'm addicted to words & sayings that mean something special to me. Eddie said to me 'You're the only one that matters so....' (sic) I was surprised that it was not painful at all. Maybe when you really want something it doesn't hurt as bad (sic)," she wrote on her Twitter.
LeAnn, 29, married Eddie in April last year and has previously had body art celebrating their union, with a temporary tattoo inspired by the vows he made to her at their wedding. The tattoo, on her ribcage, read, "You gave me the courage to be truthful. I promise to give you the comfort to be trustful."
