LEANN RIMES broke down in tears when asked about cheating—specifically with her current husband, EDDIE CIBRIAN, while they were both married to someone else—in a recent interview.

LeAnn Rimes is almost as famous for her music as she is with her highly-publicized affair, and people—most especially her hot-and-cold rival, Brandi Glanville, who once had the urge to kill her—is not going to let her forget it.

The country singer, who was previously married to Dean Sheremet when she worked and fell in love with Cibrian (who was then married to Glanville) on the set of “Northern Lights” in 2009, was interviewed about her cheating past in a sit-down interview on E!.

The show’s host Giuliana Rancic asked, referring to LeAnn and her current husband, Cibrian:

“Why act on it, when you’re both married and you both have families?”

She answered:

“I never, ever in my heart want to hurt anyone. But… I don’t think anything can separate anything that’s super-connected. You might have had so many wonderful things with each other’s spouses in your relationships, but something along the way broke that. You can’t break what’s broken already.”

And then, perhaps out of guilt that her infamous affair had caused so much pain and was hardly kept out of tabloids and celebrity gossip websites, Rimes broke down and sobbed:

“No one, because this is Eddie and my personal conversation, will ever understand how much thought and hurt, even towards each other, were put into our decision.”
