Sheremet, now 29, married singer Rimes, now 27, in 2002. They separated in July 2009. Reports circulated that Rimes had filed in September to end her marriage, but no court records exist to support the rumor.

The singer did release a statement announcing their split. She said, "This decision was amicable and we remain committed and caring friends with great admiration for one another."

Us Weekly first broke the story in March that Rimes was carrying on an affair with her former Lifetime movie costar, Eddie Cibrian. Cibrian, 36, was also married, with two children, to Brandi Glanville. His divorce from Glanville is ongoing. Cibrian and Rimes have stepped out together recently, attending events in Hollywood as a couple.

Sheremet is currently taking classes in Manhattan at the French Culinary Institute. In August, when asked about the extended Rimes-Cibrian affair that ended his marriage, he fought back tears and told, "It's bizarre. It's surreal. But I'm doing OK."
