Eddie Gave LeAnn A $85K Engagement Ring Just As He Had His Child Support Payments Slashed

| Filed under: Leann Rimes


Well this is kind of sleazy. This is your kid we're talking about here.

According to Brandi Granville, Eddie Cibrian's ex-wife, the engagement ring Eddie gave LeAnn Rimes when he proposed is worth $85K.

It's interesting that he could afford such a ring, since shortly before he proposed, he had his child support payments slashed. Brandi explained the situation to sources, saying:

“Look, I don’t mind that he got her a ring but the timing wasn’t obviously the best and the truth is the communication is not great right now. I just want to get on with my life and to move forward but it is really tough at times because everything has been so very public…The lease is up on my current home and I will be looking for a new place to live shortly while also trying to take care of my sons. I’m looking for work and trying to get my real estate license but it is a gradual process – I’m not saying Eddie is a bad guy and he is a great father but I just wish it all could be a lot easier.”

You know what might help? Money!

We're assuming the reason Eddie remains distant from his ex is because how many interviews she gives on the topic of their scandalous relationship. But perhaps, if he gave her enough money to support their kids, she wouldn't have to talk to the press.

Just a thought.

    Just look at the $85K ring as an investment. Website Celebrity Net Worth has Rimes as being worth at least $38 million dollars.

  4. 4

    i'm sure he gives his kids plenty of money to live on. his ex wife shouldn't be able to live off of the child support for the kids. geez

    shit stirrer! only a judge/mediator could slash payments - so it was prolly probable. want to pay ur rent? get a job!

    Hey EX wife, you say "I just want to get on with my life." Here's an idea. Shut the hell up and do it! Stop dragging the shit up and giving interviews. The dude IS paying child SUPPORT. MORE than enough to SUPPORT the kids. He is paying ALIMONY. Interesting that only NOW are you realizing to get a real estate license. You planned on living off a man forever? You had no sense of self worth other than sponging off the income of another person? Jesus Christ woman, SHUT UP!! He dumped you. MOVE ON already.

  7. 7

    I think both of them are idiots, but its time for Eddie's wife to stop talking and move on. Her revenge will be a better life than he will have. He and LeAnn will always have their affairs mentioned, it would be great to hear how successful his ex wife became.

  8. 8

    i bet leann paid for her own ring

    I find it amazing how men are treated during divorces. Especially if kids are involved. Everyone wants equal rights and so forth. Why as a male should I have to support the exwife at all? It is not my issue if she is not capable to find a job and support herself. It is not my issue that she can no longer live at the standard we as a couple did. I can see paying for my kids but if the ex wife is going to play games and so forth then why is when the male parent has the cash, the house and everything else they still give the wife full time custody or at least make the dad only a weekend dad. Why is it that the mother is not made the weekend mother and the father is given the kids. I can see giving the ex wife some cash to get on her feet. Maybe 6-12 months worth. But not years worth and not at the living standard she is used to. With divorce comes a reality check.

  10. 10

    Dont judge Perez. How old is this kid now? Maybe tons of diapers and formula a day is not the issue anymore. Maybe the settlement is that he pays his kids schooling and tuition for the next 13years Plus. Maybe he pays the insurance. Maybe hes going for more custody. Just because a jeoulous jilted ex runs to your wanna be celebrity insider ass, doesnt mean you have the most ligit info.

  11. 11

    Funny his kids live with him and LeAnn don't they? She just needs money to pay for her DUI lawyer

  12. 12

    He paid the ring from his monthly allowance he gets for "making her happy". Duh.

  13. 13

    Here it is almost 2 yrs. after the fact and Ms. Glanville's only notable accomplishments are to continually flap her gums and get a DUI.

  14. 14

    oh get over it. so she made a mistake she wasn't happy and she did something to make herself happy you only get one life. and we make a lot of mistakes in them. and are we forgetting he made the mistake too i hate when people just blame the woman like as if she should have known better. and a man will always be a man. screw that. he's just as much as a screw up here. but they are making it work for them and i know its hard to move on but that's just what the ex's have to do. the whole world already knows what they did no need to keep repeating it yrs later.and im sure they have more money to go around for those children. lets not forget she's been in this business since the age of 14. it's not like they both are working at mcdonalds buying a huge ring. if this is how they should spend their money then so be it. I been hurt and cheated on and i resented it for a year. after that i moved on. just silly to have all that anger in you when the couple obviously doesn't give a shiz about you and just moving on w/their own lives. :)

  15. 15

    whats always the same with betrayers is they always seem so happy with the new person laughing and now a care in the world forgetting the old like yesterdays trash…kids or no kids they just dont seem to care.. what disgrace this photo is how happy they look just pathetic U CANT BE HAPPY WHEN U MADE SOMEONE ELSE MISERABLE…get it!! KARMA WILL BIT THE ASS

  16. 16

    He has 50/50 custody so he really shouldn't be paying that much to her in child support. She is a big girl and can make money. The problem is that she doesn't want to. Not that I am fan of any of them, but as a wife of a man who pays child support to an ex girlfriend who plays video game all day instead of working to support her children, I can completely understand. The amount of money they ask you to pay is absolutely ridiculous especially if you have shared custody or have children of your own.

    Thank you everyone (well…almost everyone) for finally taking the side of Eddie and LeAnn… I am so sick of his ex-wife bitching about everything. If she wants to get on with her life… then do the fuck so and leave these two alone. Like she said, Eddie is a great father and probably paying more more to support his children and her unemployed ass. In Hollywood standards, an $85 000 ring is modest compared to these 2 million dollar rings you hear about… Please Mrs Ex Cibrian have some dignity and give it a rest!!!

  18. 18

    Re: pj88 – Who the HELL sides with Eddie and Troll Leann?? Leann is the biggest hasbeen. Leann is just jealous that Eddie use to hump his exwife and knocked her up. Leann is ugly. Really ugly.

  19. 19

    Re: jazz99 – Im born and raised in Texas. Its non-stop LeAnn support. I have never been a fan of hers. I think she is a huge selfish jaded bitch. But Eddie is hot as hell. Dont blame her for trading up. His ex shouldnt expect tons of money that she didnt earn. Marrying a celebrity does not entitle you to a lifetime of support. I dont care about thier personal life, its thier business no one elses. Im just pissed that I had to defend LeAnn's bitch ass. Thats the most disturbing.

  20. 20

    LeAnn and Eddie have the kids at least 50% of the time. There is no reason for them to pay for the kids while they are with them AND pay for the kids while they are with Brandi. Brandi has to do her part too. Child support is for non custodial parents who have their kids less than 50% of the time. Come on Perez think about these things before you write them

  21. Suze says – reply to this


    People in the Hollywood community have their priorities all messed up. Both of them sound sick in the head. Here's a guy who *just* had his child support payments reduced and he goes out and drops 85K on a ring!! And I'm sure the ex-wife is getting plenty of money to support her children. These people have NO idea what "hard times" are like and the word "budgeting" isn't in their vocabulary.

  22. 22

    Seriously Perez, did you write this before you turned your brain on? Support payments should be geared to the income of the parents and the needs of the child. If Eddie had his payments slashed it is because the courts deemed that for his income, he was paying too much. Do you actually think that Eddie should have purchased a cheap ring for Leann so that his ex wife could sit around and do nothing longer? Should Eddie work more, give up more so his ex has time to get her life together? Excuse me, but I assume that since they are divorced she received some sort of financial settlement, such as her share of bank accounts, the home they owned etc. Is she supposed to be able to just bank her share and Eddie pay everything? The chick needs to talk less and actually get a job instead of giving the "it's a process" excuse. No wonder Eddie got rid of this lazy mouthpiece

  23. 23

    Not that you can condone cheating or anything, but this woman is horribly annoying. Everytime celebs divorve the spouse get's crazy child support payments often over 10,000 a month no offense, but what the hell are you buying for that kid? Besides I'm sure she can still buy the kid things without Brandi around I mean should he really pay her so she doesn't have to get a job? Come on woman there are kids with nothing out there and parents who can barely afford food get over yourself and give a little. Maybe if her butt went to a soup kitchen once in a while then I could feel more remorse for her, but nah she just wastes time posting things online like this. Horribly annoying and what the hell does she email you these things herself? I think with or without the cheating he would have divorced her and she's just bitter about that.

    Anyway LeAnn has way more money than him so people are right think of that ring as an investment who knows maybe she paid in part for it somehow.

    Never trust a man who doesn't put his children's needs first. I can't wait to see what karma has in store for LeAnn.

  25. 25

    Wow what a fucking dick.. he can buy the skank a ring but then he has to lower his child support payments? Your kids come first but i guess that shit doesn't matter considering you chose the ugly chick in the first place over your family.. people like him don't deserve children or a good life.. i hope that bitch goes to hell along with him.. bet she paid part of it.. broke ass…

  26. 26

    Some people here are delusional.. you say she needs to get a job? does it look like this d-bag is? all's he's been doing is living off the desperate idiot.. he was married to her for years and she put her career on hold to raise his kids.. obviously he didn't have a problem with that.. so then he up's and cheats and leaves her.. and then what.. after all these years just go find a job? it is not that easy.. i don't give a damn what anyone says it's not.. i've been out there.. she had her modeling career but she is older now.. you really think she can just pick that the fuck back up? she said she was trying to get her new job.. and if that idiot can go out and spend that kind of money and go on vacations without even working then why should he get any sympathy? If he's really hurting then maybe he should stop spending money and going out living a luxurious lifestyle if he can't really afford it.. HE needs to get a job too..

  27. 27

    Can we all gain a littler perspective here!!! This man married and had children with Brandi. That's right CHILDREN more than one. And then Eddie not only decides to leave his wife and the home they made together BUT he decides to cheat on his wife MOTHER OF HIS CHILDREN before he gets the balls to actually leave her. Yes he should need to pay her alimony because this sorry excuse for a man not only betrayed his wife and children by sneaking around with another woman, but he did it in front of the entire world to see!!!!!!! On top of it all it seems like he full out avoiding her now. Your a man Eddie ( a sorry excuse for one) get your shit together and take responsibility. I understand that him and Brandi probably had a lot of problems behind closed doors.. etc etc. But at the end of the day that doesn't make it ok to cheat and lie to someone ESPECIALLY when you have children involved. What kind of message does this send??????? All I can say is that I hope his two boys grow up to be better than their father. As for Brandi not working….. she was raising two kids and running a household. This does NOT mean she wasn't intending on getting a job once her boys got a bit older. She clearly was putting her children first!!!

  28. 28

    I think all you woman who are on "team Eddie" and think Brandi is annoying would feel a lot different if you were cheated on and then dumped by your husband and left to raise your two boys ALONE. Men do this shit all the time and karma is a bitch ladies, so talk all the trash you want about Brandi now, but i hope for you sake you dont end up in her position one day like so many woman do!!!

  29. 29

    You're making a lot of assumptions about him and his children. How would you know that he doesn't take care of them? Just because his child support payments are less? Most of know that the wives take the child support for themselves anyway.

  30. 30

    His ex needs to STFU. If she wants to get on with her life why doesn't she let this go. She tweets about him constantly and is really hanging her hat on her role as the "wronged" spouse. Yeah, he cheated. So your relationship wasn't perfect. It's OVER. Get a JOB and REALLY move on with your life.

  31. 31

    If she wants to move on and doesnt like how everything is tough because of it being so public..why doest she SHUT THE FUCK UP?? No one would know half the shit thats "PUBLIC" if she werent bitching to the press all the time. If she thinks he is such a good father than why bring up these things? No wonder he took off she sounds like a goddamn nag.

  32. 32

    Not going into the whole who is wrong etc etc………how does the ex know how expensive the ring was?

  33. 33

    daaaanng…..can these doosh-bags get any dooshier ?

  34. 34

    if a judge slashed the payments. it means she was getting too much. I'm SURE she's not wonder where her next meal is coming from. Your baby is a child NOT a paycheck and at some point you have to pay for it TOO!!!!!

  35. 35

    How can she see anything… her eyes are slits and her face looks like a face of a boxer dog.

  36. 36

    Wait a second, Perez. Who says he isn't paying enough?? The court reduced the award after a full and careful review of the EVIDENCE. Even Brandi admits Eddie is a great father; he can't be a great father and NOT support his kids. He is supporting his kids! And, most of the publicity of this whole thing has been from Brandi. She's a total psycho, who is absolutely NOT putting the kids first by trashing their dad and dragging this whole thing through the mud. That woman is a first class B*TCH, and I know this personally. She is more concerned with staying skinny and plastic than raising those boys. Eddie was always the ones at the sports games and picking the kids up from school. He's a total tool, but he's a nice guy and a good father. No one ever understood why he put up with that psycho snob. I don't like that he cheated, but I understand it - he's a whimp, and Brandi scares the hell out of most people who've had the displeasure of meeting her.

  37. 37

    Child support payments are required monthly, while an engagement ring is a one time purchase. Perhaps he saved up for it? Is he never entitled to buy a nice item ever again since his child support was reduced?

    Not to mention, we don't know if LeAnn might have paid for part of it or if he financed it. He isn't doing any work right now, so its not out of the realm of possibility that LeAnn paid for it herself. How does the ex know how much he paid anyway? B*tch is always in her ex's shiz.

    *I wish it could all be a lot easier = I wish Eddie would pay 100k plus a year in child support and alimony so my lazy ass doesn't have to work.

  38. 38

    Re: Htownspitfire – Why the fuck should she shut up? He brought this all on by cheating on her and if it's true that he bought her that ring right after getting his child support lowered that is an ULTRA douchy thing to do. His ex should go around telling everyone EVERY THING about his worthless piece of shit ass!! He deserves it. Karma mother fucker.
