LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian First Met When She Was 14: Throwback Photo!

If only they knew! LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian met long before their infamous cheating scandal. The country singer shared a throwback photo of the pair from the mid-'90s on Thursday, April 21.

"I was 14, he was 23. We don't remember meeting," Rimes, now 33, captioned the snapshot via Instagram. "He found this in the garage while going through boxes. 14 years later who knew we'd meet again."

Rimes and Cibrian reunited when they starred together in the 2009 TV movie Northern Lights. As Us Weekly exclusively revealed at the time, the two — both married then — began a full-fledged affair on set. In her Instagram caption on Thursday, Rimes alluded to the scandal, which led both stars to split from their respective spouses, Dean Sheremet and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Brandi Glanville.

"Crazy, all the life that happened between those two encounters, the lessons that needed to be learned. Fate? Chance? Serendipity? Who knows?" Rimes wrote on Thursday. "All we do know is, here we are together and tomorrow we are celebrating 5 years of being married and we wouldn't want to be anywhere else. #crazylove #lovers #friends #partners #hubby #anniversary #5years #throwback #throwbackthursday #tbt."

The celebration begins! #anniversary #5years #love
