Leann Rimes Talks Affair: "You Can't Break What's Broken Already"

Posted Saturday December 8, 2012 11:44 PM GMT

Though she's been married to Eddie Cibrian for over a year, the public is still stuck on LeAnn Rimes's decision to begin an affair with him while they were both married.

In an interview with E!, the country crooner is asked point blank about the affair by Giuliana Rancic.

LeAnn begins to explain, saying, "I never, ever in my heart want to hurt anyone. But… I don’t think anything can separate anything that’s super-connected. You might have had so many wonderful things with each other’s spouses in your relationships, but something along the way broke that. You can’t break what’s broken already."

Then, she begins to cry and concludes, "No one, because this is Eddie and my personal conversation, will ever understand how much thought and hurt, even towards each other, were put into our decision."
