Spotlight on Eddie Cibrian

Private life of Eddie Cibrian

  • Edward Carl “Eddie” Cibrian is an American actor. He portrayed Jesse Cardoza during the eighth and ninth season of CSI: Miami.
  • Cibrian, an only child, was born in Burbank, California. His mother, Hortensia (née Balaguer), is an office manager, and his father, Carl Cibrian, a banker.
  • He is of Cuban descent.
  • In May 2001, Cibrian married Brandi Glanville, a former model. Cibrian and Glanville have two sons, Mason and Jake.

  • Shortly after going public with Rimes, on August 24, 2009, Cibrian filed for divorce from Glanville citing irreconcilable differences. On June 11, 2010, Cibrian issued a statement to E! Online asking his ex-wife to stop talking about his affair with Rimes, saying:

“I can’t change the past and I’m truly sorry that people got hurt along the way but not everything reported in the media is reality and continuing to rehash things publicly only makes it more difficult for everyone to heal. I hope for the sake of our children we can all move forward and heal privately. I wish their mother nothing but the best.”

  • Cibrian and Glanville’s divorce was finalized on September 30, 2010.
  • On December 27, 2010, it was announced that Rimes and Cibrian were engaged. The couple wed on April 22, 2011, at a private home in California
