(Newser) – Eddie Cibrian is rumored to have strayed with costar LeAnn Rimes—and now he’s paying the price. Wife Brandi Glanville left him after catching the cheating pair together again, she tells Us, adding, “Eddie and LeAnn deserve each other.” Cibrian was quick to shoot back a statement that he doesn't appreciate the "tabloid fervor" following the "speed bump" he's experiencing with Brandi, Extra reports. Elsewhere:

  • Congratulations were a bit early for Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jamie Kennedy, rumored yesterday to be engaged. Reps for both denied the reports, according to the Mirror.

  • Madonna refuses to be interviewed by investigators in a probe of her stage collapse, the Sun reports, citing a French newspaper.
  • Mischa Barton is “still seeking treatment but making improvements,” her rep tells Us. The actress has been under psychiatric hold a week, but plans to return to work on her CW series The Beautiful Life later this month.
