Earlier this week, LeAnn and husband Eddie Cibrian spoke to Life & Style about the affair. They admitted telling his children about the cheating.
“We’ve had discussions with them about the whole situation,” Eddie said of sons Mason, 11, and Jake, 7.
“They understand more than you think they do,” LeAnn added.
In response to that story, LeAnn lashed out on Twitter calling it misleading.

Then she went on EXTRA, doubled down and admitted they HAD told the kids about the affair. But insisted that the kids asked first and the answers were age-appropriate.
LeAnn tells host Mario Lopez:
The kids actually came to us and asked, very nonchalantly over dinner, and Eddie was very honest with them in a way that you can be with a 7-year-old and 11-year-old.
[Eddie is] always the first person to say how much he loves me, and they see that in our house, and they feel that, so I think it’s important not to lie to children.
They understand way more…We both never want them to come back and say, ‘You weren’t honest with us about this.’ They’re very open with us, which us cool.
