LeAnn Rimes reportedly has her lawyer sending a cease and desist letter to her boyfriend Eddie Cibrian's estranged wife, Brandi Glanville, on Thursday, May 27. The 27-year-old country music singer, who was romantically involved with Eddie after playing together in "Northern Lights" in 2009, cited allegations of slander, E! Online reported.

The site further reported that Brandi was insisted to respond the cease and desist letter in five days. If she fails to respond to the legal note, LeAnn will move forward with a lawsuit, asking a court to grant a gagging order.

However, a reliable source close to Eddie's soon-to-be ex-wife denied the accusation. The source told the site, "Brandi has been nothing but nice to LeAnn. She let her kids go to Mexico with them, and she is genuinely happy that they like her. If they didn't, then she would be upset."

The source moreover revealed LeAnn's slander allegations stem from before Brandi and Eddie split. The source explained that Brandi told the press LeAnn was "stalking" Eddie because she wasn't aware of her then-husband and the star' love affair. Brandi was said making those statements before Eddie told her about his relationship with the "I Need You" singer.

Meanwhile, a source from LeAnn's party, who revealed the cease and desist letter was indeed sent, disclosed that the legal note came "after months and months of Brandi speaking about LeAnn in the press and telling lies. This is a reaction, and something she felt was necessary to do to protect herself."

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian met on the set of TV movie "Northern Lights". They later fell in love although back at that time, both LeAnn and Eddie were married to their respective spouses. And later, LeAnn and her husband Dean Sheremet divorced with Dean filing the legal paper in Los Angeles Superior Court on December 17, 2009.

She's just a typical spoiled brat and thinks she's entitled to anything she wants, including someone elses husband. I fully believe her Twitter is used to taunt his ex. I have read lots of her tweets and they sound more like arrogant bragging. Life is gonna give her a swift kick in the ass and I hope to have a front seat watching it. When he starts cheating on you when you gave two toddlers let's see how " classy" you really are. It's pretty easy to take the high road when you aren't the one getting dumped. She is the epitome of spoiled entitlement. Oh and just because you walk in a studio and make a record every 5 years doesn't make you a hard worker. U don't know hard work but you will when you go broke and you are still ugly and eventually manless. :)

Eddie you really proved your character. YOU humiliated, hurt, deceived your wife and kids. YOU should have never let Slit eyes send that letter...Its all your fault. If you would have been a real man for your family. YOu would have ended one relationship, before starting the afair

This nasty little afair, has never bothered me and couldn't care less. Heck this is what everyone in Hollywood does. But when you break up a FAMILY (UNITY) and try to intmidate the WIFE and her X does nothing to stop you - GET a life...YOU TWO DID HER WRONG. You acted like her husband, friend and then screw her and you kids over....

His wife was only repeating what he told her. He told her you wouldn't leave him alone and now he is throwing her and the kids (Yes they are one) under the BUS.. Get a soul, since you are missing one. You act like your are entitled and you aren't crap. Just look like it

Isn't this the same liar who sued her Dad. Where is your soul? If she had any class, she would have waited until he was divorced. She put her claws in when he was married and this wife thought things were good and they were a family. A least a real man would have acted decent. I bet his parents are proud. He, they, she makes me sick

Her parents raised a SPOILED, NASTY, UGLY, TWIT. Eddie is a looser and wouldn't give your fat A** an extra glance, if you worked at a grocery store. HE LOVES YOUR MONEY...Its so obvious, he is not going to leave you, but will cheat on your stupid stalking self

Karma will get you Leann! Sending a letter to his WIFE. HE led her to belive you were a stupid stalker. Then he saw how much money you had...Everbody is laughing at you...,HE will move on and find a girl he loves, not a stupid stalker paying him

LeAnn Rimes & her parents must be three of the worst people ever to have have been born - absolutely no moral or values set, enforced or lived by. LeAnn should be the poster child for the pro-choice movement. Some evolution: Scaly Girl to Skanky Girl!

I still remember LeAnn denying that she was carrying on an affair with Eddie when in fact, we all now know she was. She had the nerve to post last year on her website for her fans "have faith" when referring to her marriage problems. She's not only an adulteress but a liar. I wouldn't take much stock in what she claims the ex-wife is doing. I still can't figure out what Eddie sees in LeAnn.

Leann's single and album is set to come out, so is anyone at all surprised that Leann is creating this drama? Her album and single must be really bad the only way to sell her album is by suing the married man's wife. Let's keep in mind that Leann made some pretty nasty comments on her twitter page about BG. Some posters saved EVERYTHING that Leann said. Leann has been tweeting about BG kids even though BG asked her not to do it, so could BG issue Leann and C & D?
