Eddie Cibrian Responds to Ex-Wife Brandi Glanville's Child Support Claims
Update: Eddie Cibrian has responded to ex-wife Brandi Glanville's Twitter allegations that he asked her for child support for their two sons, Mason 10, and Jake, 6. "There is no truth to the claims that Eddie has requested child support from Brandi now, nor will he ever request child support from his ex-wife," Cibrian's rep told Us Weekly in a statement. "The notion is preposterous. This is yet another ploy for self-promotion."
As previously reported, Glanville took to Twitter on Tuesday, Feb. 18, with a complaint about her ex allegedly asking her to pay child support more than three years after the terms of their divorce were finalized. See their rocky history here.
"2 all these young unmarried bloggers writing about getting over divorce & not seeing ur children grow up 1/2 the time, walk a mile in my shoes," the Drinking & Dating author tweeted. "I'm not taking cheap shots at my ex in my new book cuz it's all true & now mr fancy new cars & house man is asking ME for child support! U know nada."
She added: "Everytime I take 1 step frwd [sic] I get a lawyers letter that takes me 3 steps back so when people say move on, I say 2 my ex LET ME! Just STOP. Going to stay positive and focus on my new book & let my lawyer handle the rest."
Cibrian and Glanville have been divorced since 2010; he's now married to singer LeAnn Rimes. Last August, the couple signed on to star in a new reality show about their marriage on VH1. He's also a working actor, and recently appeared in the movie The Best Man Holiday.
Money had long been a challenge for the former couple. In a recent interview with the U.K.'s Times magazine, Glanville admitted she and Cibrian weren't very strategic with their finances. "Eddie and I were never truly rich," the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star explained. "We were ghetto rich. We had the nice cars, the nice house, and the nice jewels, but we probably had a second and a third mortgage. We were living paycheck to paycheck, with no savings."
No longer -- at least for Glanville. "I don't live beyond my means," the Bravo star said. "I go to the 99 Cent Store. I'm not trying to keep up with the Kardashians."
