LeAnn Rimes addresses Cibrian affair on her Web site

Is she or isn't she?

On her Web site yesterday, country singer LeAnn Rimes addressed the reported affair she is having with her co-star Eddie Cibrian - the subject of this week's Us magazine cover story.

Only problem is: Cibrian, who is married to model Brandi Glanville, says it isn't so. "It is a fabricated story that is using random snapshots as connective tissue to create a scandalous relationship," Cibrian said in a statement first obtained by "Access Hollywood."

Nevertheless, on her official Web site, Rimes told her fans to "have faith." "This is a difficult time for me and my loved ones, but I appreciate all your continued support," she writes. "I would like to assure all of you that this is a place for you to hear things directly from me and as you all know, not everything in our lives is always black and white."

In the March 18 issue of Us Weekly, director Mike Robe describes how Rimes, 26, and Cibrian, 35, had instant chemistry when they met on the set of their Lifetime movie "Northern Lights," an adaptation of the Nora Roberts novel that airs Saturday.

"From the moment we rehearsed, LeAnn and Eddie honestly developed a really strong bond and a warm relationship," says Robe.

The lovebirds have been getting cozy off the set as well, and photos taken from a video security camera show them holding hands and kissing in a Laguna Beach, Calif., restaurant and club. The celeb mag also reports on a three-hour Malibu tryst, how Rimes tried to save her marriage and the reasons why she strayed.

Rimes, a two-time Grammy winner, married former backup dancer Dean Sheremet in Dallas, Texas, in February 2002. Cibrian has two sons with Glanville: Mason, 5, and Jake, 23 months.,0,6961589.story
