LeAnn Rimes has a reputation for cancelling her concerts at the last minute due to sudden or mystery illness. It’s no longer unexpected for her to tweet about becoming sick, or going to the doctor, and then cancelling that night’s performance.
Fans are tired of the no-shows and call the country singer out on faking it to get out of her commitments. She just makes more excuses. However, her reason for calling in sick so often hasn’t been clear. Until now!
An insider reveals that LeAnn finds any possible excuse to stay at home. She feels if she is with her husband, Eddie Cibrian, at all times, he can’t possibly find time alone to have an affair.
LeAnn Rimes infuriated fans recently when she canceled a number of her concerts, claiming she was too sick to perform. But after social media slip-ups revealed that LeAnn was actually partying, Star has learned the real reason she’s jeopardizing her career: she fears Eddie Cibrian will cheat on her.
LeAnn first sparked outrage by backing out of her Feb. 20 show at the Cold Country Casion and Hotel in Oroville, CA at the last minute. She then went on to cancel the following night’s show at the Primm Valley Resort in Las Vegas.
“I am so sorry to my fans that were planning on spending the evening with me,” she said in a statement. “I would think living in California would help deter those pesky winter illnesses but boy was I wrong! As I lay here coughing and hacking away, I promise the wait will be worth it.”
But her followers didn’t buy her excuse. On the day of her second canceled show, LeAnn tweeted about Mexican food and margaritas, writing that she was doing “Mexican food” to honor the day.

The Star insider adds, there’s a reason LeAnn calls in sick so much, why she’s always got “dental issues” (aside from those she’s suing over), why she’s always got a cold or some other sickness. She’s making excuses so she can stay at home with her man… whether he wants her to or not!
The insider explains, “She figures that if she watched over Eddie’s every move and spends every waking moment with him, there’ll be no way for him to have an affair.” LeAnn’s ex-husband just did a tell-all where he admitted it would have been impossible for him to stop LeAnn cheating during their marriage. It’s interesting LeAnn is taking the exact opposite approach and clinging to Eddie’s every move.
“Her fans may hate her for [all the cancelled tour dates],” adds the insider, “but she couldn’t care less.”
Previously, it was reported that Eddie felt smothered by LeAnn. Eddie reportedly cannot stand to be alone with LeAnn for “any extended amount of time” and he avoids her whenever he can.
