LeAnn Rimes Is a Good Sport About Tabloid Talk

Ever since the news of her relationship with now-fiance Eddie Cibrian broke, LeAnn Rimes has had to deal with being the subject of lots and lots of salacious tabloid talk. But the singer takes it all in stride and is actually a good sport about it, as her recent chat with KMPS illustrates.

“We both try and avoid it as much as possible, but it’s unavoidable — but we try and separate ourselves from it,” Rimes says about how she and Cibrian deal with being gossip fodder by taking the high road. She proceeds to joke about how she’s going to have three-headed triplets from Mars if you believe what’s written in the tabloids!

Rimes goodnaturedly engages in a round of “Tabloid Fact or Not” about herself during the interview, saying that the rumor that she is a Justin Bieber fan is false only because “I haven’t paid much attention to him. It’s not a bad thing.” She confirms that she does have a brand-new spice rack, because “we just remodeled our kitchen.”

She also admitts that she, Cibrian and Cibrian’s ex, Brandi Glanville, have indeed faced their drama head on, attending therapy together. “The three of us went to one counseling session and I am hoping it continues,” Rimes admits.

Rimes’ new album ‘Lady and Gentlemen,’ where she covers songs previously sung by men, is out in March. Rimes says she didn’t change all the gender pronouns since she is belting out the tunes, explaining, “We did for ‘Swingin’,’ but for the most part, no.”
