It was 2008 when LeAnn Rimes met Eddie Cibrian on the film set of the Lifetime Channel original movie Northern Lights. Sparks flew between the pair and they had instant chemistry. The only problem was both were already married.

Two messy divorces later and the couple was able to make their love public. Rimes addressed the controversy, telling People, “I take responsibility for everything I’ve done. I hate that people got hurt… But I don’t regret the outcome.”
