Vocal talents may not be enough to pay LeAnn Rimes‘ bills these days! The country singer’s most recent album, Spitfire, was a dismal failure. In fact, she hasn’t had a bona fide hit album since 2007 — before she cheated on then husband Dean Sheremet with married actor Eddie Cibrian.
Now, the 31-year-old is married to Eddie, but they’re struggling financially. So much so, in fact, that he even had to ask ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, LeAnn’s nemesis, for money. “He asked Brandi for child support,” an insider tells Star. “He has no money of his own; LeAnn was paying his portion of child support!” (Brandi’s rep has supported this claim, while the actor denies it).
The money trouble has put a strain on the couple’s relationship, with LeAnn worried that Eddie will leave her if she doesn’t bring in money. “He’s been disappearing a lot lately and is very vague about his whereabouts,” a friend reveals. “He will come home at midnight and blow off her questions about where he was.”
With her husband backing away, LeAnn has found herself in a very dire place. “She feels like she’s all alone,” the insider confirms.
