Everyone recognizes the name Dean Cheremet, even if it’s not nearly as famous as the names LeAnn Rimes, Eddie Cibrian or Briandi Glanville. He is the ex-husband of country singer LeAnn Rimes, and the only person involved in the long-ago cheating scandal that rocked two marriages, tore apart two homes and hurt two spouses. Dean Sheremet kept to himself when his wife began having an affair with married father Eddie Cibrian when the two starred in a made for television movie together back in 2009.
Eddie Cibrian’s ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, used the opportunity to make herself famous. She became a real housewife and reality star, she wrote a book and she used every single possible moment of her 15 minutes of fame to bring up her exes name, Rimes’ name and what they did to her and her children with Cibrian. She was hurt, and no one can blame her for that. However, it seems to us that the only one in this crazy situation with any class is Sheremet, who quietly divorced his wife, kept his comments to himself and made his way out of the press as quickly as possible.
Of course, it’s been 7 years and he’s now opening up about his ex-wife, the cheating scandal that rocked the nation, and everything in between. That makes us want to know a bit more about the man that LeAnn Rimes once called her husband for many years when she was much younger and much more well-liked around the world.
He was a dancer
When Dean Sheremet met LeAnn Rimes, he was a professional dancer. He wanted to be a superstar and he was good enough that he could have been one in his own time. He was a wonderful dancer and he spent much of his life and his time working on his art and working on his craft. He loved what he did, and he knew that he would one day be great.
Now he’s a chef
Since he’s been out of the spotlight for the past seven years, Dean Sheremet has taken a love of cooking into his life and turned it into his career. Dancing is something that he gave up after many years of no longer doing it, and it’s no longer his dream. Now he loves to cook, and that’s what he does with his life and his time.
He was married to Rimes for 7 years
When he and LeAnne Rimes married, she was 18 and he was 20. He was a successful dancer, she was a superstar since she was only 13, and they worked well together. They met, fell in love and got married in a way that was very quick, very passionate and very much to the shock of just about everyone else in the world.
He never liked the pomp and circumstance
When he was only 20-years-old living with his new wife, he was not comfortable. They bought a giant mansion in Beverly Hills, had luxury cars in their driveway that they rarely even used, and they had it all. Dean Sheremet, however, wasn’t happy with it. He never felt comfortable spending money and flashing it around with things like Ferraris and super expensive items. He’s a man who preferred to live a low-key life that centered around his dancing and his wife’s career singing as a country music superstar.
He gave up his career for his ex-wife
Being married to LeAnn Rimes turned Dean Sheremet into more than just a husband. He eventually found that he was not really her husband so much as he was her manager and her friend and her production president. He made all the decisions in her career, he worked to make her more famous, and he worked to ensure that she was an even bigger star than she was when she married him. He wasn’t so much a dancer after a while, but it took him a while to realize that he’d given up his career to take over the career of his wife, and that is probably something he very much regrets to this day.
Family is the most important thing to him
Some people think that the fame and success is what is important to those who have it, but not to Dean Sheremet. He’s always wanted a family, kids, and the works. All he wants in life are those things, and that’s what is most important to him.
He thinks he failed as a husband
We know that he gave up his career as a dancer for LeAnn Rimes, but he felt that his first marriage was one in which he failed very much. Dean Sheremet feels that he did not spend any time focusing on being a husband so much as he did focusing on his ex-wife’s career, and that was what ultimately led to the demise of their marriage.
He thinks LeAnn Rimes is dumb
Don’t get us wrong; he thinks she is a brilliant singer and a wonderful country music superstar. However, he does think that she is dumb for divorcing him since he is the one who made her more famous than ever. Since their divorce, she has not had one hit and he believes he is the reason for that.
He credits himself for her fame
LeAnn Rimes became famous when she was 13 with her gorgeous voice. However, it was Dean Sheremet and his influence that made her a superstar. He turned her music into a giant profit and made her more famous than ever. He might not have been a great husband, but he was a stellar manager and partner, and he did have a lot to do with LeAnn Rimes’ success.
He doesn’t blame his ex-wife’s affair on his divorce
At the end of the day, Dean Sheremet is not happy that his ex-wife cheated on him and broke up two families. However, he doesn’t think that is the reason their marriage failed. He believes that their marriage failed long before they were in this situation, and that it was just an inevitable moment in their lives.
