LeAnn Rimes and Brandi GlanvilIe posed for a smiling selfie on Saturday, 14 April – after years of feuding
Reality TV personality Brandi has been hurling insults at LeAnn ever since 2009, when an affair the singer had with the 44-year-old’s then-husband Eddie Cibrian was exposed in the press. The scandal led to the end of Eddie and Brandi’s marriage, while LeAnn also divorced dancer-turned-chef Dean Sheremet.
Eddie and LeAnn married in 2011, with Brandi predicting at the time that the couple would split up three years after their nuptials. While the pair appear to have defied the odds and seem happier than ever, Brandi appeared to have no intention of ending her long-running feud with LeAnn, with Eddie previously insisting that her frequent jabs at the singer were simply an attempt to “drum up drama and stay relevant”.
However, Brandi decided to put her feelings about LeAnn behind her as the family united to celebrate her and Eddie’s son Jake’s 11th birthday on Saturday.
Sharing the shot of herself and LeAnn smiling for the camera on Instagram, Brandi wrote: “Peace in #calabasturd hanging for Jakes bday.”
LeAnn has yet to comment on the friendly snap, but did share a shot of herself and Jake on her own Instagram page, writing: “Happy O-fficial Birthday to this lil man! I am so blessed to be his stepmom. What joy he brings to the lives of everyone he encounters. I wish he was still this little Happy #11 Jakey #happybirthday #stepmom #stepsonlove (sic).”
Speaking previously about her fractured relationship with Brandi, LeAnn told Fabulous magazine that she found it difficult not to let rip at her spouse’s ex, because of the children
“It’s been really difficult,” she admitted. “You have to stand up for yourself and be your own person, but at the same time you have to protect these children and their hearts. And that’s a very tough balance.”
