LeAnn Rimes & Dean Sheremet have been separated for ‘a while’

Seen here still wearing her wedding ring in public Thursday, it turns out LeAnn Rimes has been separated from her husband Dean Sheremet for months, according to Us Magazine:

“Thanks to everyone for all the support through a very difficult time!” The former backup dancer, 28, posted earlier this afternoon.
His last Tweet was March 18: “I love my wife!!!”
Earlier, a source told Us the duo — who wed in 2002 when Rimes was just 19 — “have been separated for awhile.
“They are leading separate lives and not staying together most of the time, but still in each other’s lives as best friends,” the source said. “They are still not divorcing yet, but are working through things and taking time apart — as they have been — while they figure things out.”

And, of course, what better way to work through things then stalking the man you had an affair with while trying to maintain a heterosexual marriage with a gay man. No, really, we’ll all be laughing about this at their 50th wedding anniversary. “Hey, honey, remember when you were gay?” “Still am, you cheating whore.” AHAHAHA! Old people.
