Eddie Cibrian is coming back for round two. The actor has responded for the second time to ex-wife Brandi Glanville's allegations that he has asked her to pay child support for their two sons.

"Brandi's first tweet stated Eddie was asking her for child support which is now been proven as a complete lie," a statement Us Weekly has obtained reads. "Eddie has been and is continuing TO pay child support to Brandi. This is an unrelated issue and regards the QDRO – Qualified Domestic Relations Order. It only pertains to the division of Eddie’s retirement plan. This was discussed, agreed upon and in place four years ago in 2010 and is now being divided up."

"This is yet another endless attempt to manipulate the truth which always seems to happen when Brandi has something to promote," the statement continued. "By now, after all these years of this happening repeatedly, everyone including every media outlet should know not to believe anything Brandi says."

As previously reported, Glanville, 41, claimed via Twitter on Feb. 18 that Cibrian, 40, had allegedly asked her to pay for child support for their two sons Mason, 10, and Jake, 6. (The exes divorced in 2010, and Cibrian is now married to singer LeAnn Rimes.) In a first statement after the allegations, Cibrian noted that "the notion is preposterous."

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, however, has already begun to concentrate on other aspects of her life. "Everytime I have a book come out someone pulls shady sh-t to make it not about my book, I'm going to now focus on my NY times best seller," she tweeted on Feb. 20. "No more EX talk I know I started it but I really want 2enjoy the success of my new book Drinking &Dating!Thnk UAlLL 4 makin it a best seller."
