Country music star LeAnn Rimes has revealed that she has asked for forgiveness for her infamous extramarital affair that ended her marriage and that of her partner in crime, to whom she is currently married to.
Speaking to ET about her new album Spitfire – which features songs of her extramarital affair with current husband Eddie Cibrain (who was married to Brandi Glanville at that time), she said, ‘I’ve definitely asked for forgiveness on a daily basis.
‘We are human beings who are going to sin and make mistakes, and if you have that connection, for me, is something that I feel is bigger than me, it’s not something that’s unusual to do.’
Concerning the media’s coverage of the extremely dirty affair, Rimes said, ‘I feel like so many people have written the story that they think will sell a magazine, or the story that they want to believe, but it’s so 180 of what has been written.
‘People have had the lies to twist for so long, they might as well have the truth to twist now.’
Her song Borrowed exposes the anguish she felt during her extra-marital affair, and she’s tough on herself (and Eddie isn’t spared either) in You’ve Ruined Me.
The new album drops in June 6.
