First came last week’s reports that LeAnn Rimes has been having an affair with her married co-star, Eddie Cibrian. Now, speculation is rising once again about the sexuality of Rimes’ husband of seven years, Dean Sheremet.

A woman who claimed to be Sheremet’s cousin and identified herself as “Pebbles” called in to Michigan’s Mojo In The Morning radio show to claim that Sheremet is gay, popcrunch.com reports.

“The family literally used to take bets on what age he would come out, and then all of the sudden he got married,” Pebbles said.

Rimes’ publicist laughed off the allegations.
