LeAnn Rimes took to her blog on Wednesday to reach out to fans in the wake of a report that the singer had cheated on her husband, former backup dancer Dean Sheremet, with Eddie Cibrian, her co-star in the Lifetime original movie “Northern Lights.”

“This is a difficult time for me and my loved ones,” the singer-actress wrote on her Web site. “But I appreciate all your continued support. I would like to assure all of you that this is a place for you to hear things directly from me and as you all know, not everything in our lives is black and white.”

On Tuesday, Us Weekly reported that Rimes and Cibrian had engaged in a steamy affair — but the actor issued a strong denial to Access Hollywood on Wednesday.

“Other than being friends and two actors who were romantically intertwined in a movie-for-television we filmed last fall, there is no truth to the reporting initiated by US Magazine,” Eddie said in a statement to Access Hollywood. “It is a fabricated story that is using random snapshots as connective tissue to create a scandalous relationship.”

Aussie Keith Urban to ‘Idol’ winner Carrie Underwood, these music artists have a hot combination – talent and looks. 

Earlier in the day, a rep for the actor told Access that Us Weekly’s reports were “absolutely NOT true.” 

In a show of support, on what appears to be his personal Twitter page, Sheremet wrote, “I love my wife!!!” on Thursday morning.

The couple wed in 2002, when Rimes was 19 and Sheremet was 21. Cibrian, 35, married model Brandi Glanville in 2001. The couple has two young sons.

A rep for Rimes had no further details when reached by Access on Wednesday.

“We do not comment on LeAnn’s personal life,” a rep for the star said.
