In a “The Shirtless-ness Should’ve Been a Red Flag” twist, reports are sashaying in that LeAnn Rimes’ husband Dean Sheremet is gay. An alleged family member, “Cousin Pebbles,” called into Michigan’s Mojo in the Morning and outed Dean which resulted in a flurry of calls confirming his love of men. LeAnn’s rep issued an asinine denial of these allegations Saturday. Us Magazine reports:
On the radio, the so-called “Pebbles ” declared that Sheremet “doesn’t care” that Rimes had an affair with her TV movie costar Eddie Cibrian because “he’s gay.” The woman also added, “He’s been gay since he was probably five.”
Rimes’s rep’s response? “Although Dean and LeAnn never knew they had a cousin named Pebbles, they are glad to hear that she has come out of the woodwork,” he says. “Dean and LeAnn are also interested in connecting with their other long lost family members: Fred, Wilma, Barney and Bamm-Bamm. So Pebbles, please let us know if you have spoken to them, too.”
Wow, that clears up everything. Except for the part where if you’re outing a family member on the radio, you’d probably use a fictitious name, Matlock. I mean, Christ, just look at Dean. I’m pretty sure he could hold his own in a fight. And by hold his own I mean pin you down and recite poetry while giving you butterfly kisses.*
