Dean Sheremet and his second wife Sarah Silver are divorcing after five years of marriage.

The 35 year old chef and cookbook author who is best known for being the ex-husband of LeAnn Rimes confirmed the news to Us Weekly;

"I have nothing but love and respect for Sarah. Her love made me a better man. I will always be thankful she touched my life."

Dean Sheremet Breaks Silence On LeAnn Rimes, Eddie Cibrian, Cheating Scandal

Unlucky in love ex-backup dancer Dean, was married to Rimes for eight years when she famously went off to make a movie in Canada with Eddie Cibrian.  They embarked on a torrid affair that ended both their marriages, and Sheremet has spoken about his split from the country singer a few times, telling ET in 2015;

"I felt like I was never having my needs met so there was fighting.

And I was so intertwined in managing her career that I didn’t know how to make the distinction between husband and boss, husband and partner, husband and manager.

I was husband, father, friend, lover, manager. There were so many hats and I didn’t know what hat to wear when."

In February this year he appeared on Cibrian's ex Brandi Glanville's show and she and Sheremet discussed the moment they knew their marriages were over. He said of his marriage to Rimes;

"Standing here, seven years later, I'm like, 'I probably annoyed her and did some weird things …,I have no ill will towards her … I just tried my best to be as accountable as possible without pointing any fingers. And I am over it!"

Poor old Dean has another divorce to get over now, but at least this ex-wife won't slap him with a lawsuit to prevent him talking about her!

LeAnn Rimes ex husband, Dean Sheremet, has been sent a legal letter from the singer’s lawyers, ordering him to keep his mouth firmly shut.

The former backup dancer-turned-chef, is gearing up for a publicity tour, to promote his new cookbook, and it appears Rimes is more than a little concerned over what dirty little secrets her ex may spill.

As Popdust previously reported, Sheremet has remained pretty tight lipped when it comes to their messy break-up, seldom speaking out about the cheating scandal that ended their 7-year-marriage—and, it turns out there’s a reason for that.

Do as Rimes says, not as Rimes does

Although Rimes is more than happy to share her side of the story, over and over again, via numerous interviews, tweets, and her short lived glorious train wreck of a reality show, she doesn’t want to afford her ex the same privilege—which is pretty much par for the course when it comes to the 33-year-old’s track record.

Brandi Glanville Gets All Zen And Shit, Sends Love To Leanne Rimes

Let’s face it, if there’s one thing Rimes’ ongoing public feud with Brandi Glanville has proved, it’s that she loves to dole it out, but really does NOT like to take it.

So, sure enough, she runs to her attorney in a bid to stem any bad publicity. However, as is often the case with Rimes, her scheming backfired, as Sheremet shared her attempted gag order with the press.

Oh snap!

LeAnn Rimes ex husband STFU!

In Touch has a copy of the letter, which reminds Sheremet of the confidentiality agreement he signed as part of their divorce settlement, chides him for daring to speak out last year about his ill-feted relationship with Rimes, and threatens him with legal action should he do so again.

STFU Dean Sheremet!

LeAnn Rimes Photoshopping Herself Into Eddie Cibrian’s Family Pictures?

It reads in part:

Last year you gave some interviews that we believe were clearly stepping over the confidentiality line imposed by Paragraphs 14.1.1 and 14.3.1. LeAnn chose to not pursue legal remedies at the time in the hope that there would be no further violations of your agreement.

However, it now appears that your book coming out on February 8, and the publicity and marketing associated with it, will certainly once again violate these paragraphs.

The attorney then attempts to pretend that Rimes isn’t just a self-centered narcissistic control freak

LeAnn has no desire to interfere with your ability to earn a living as a professional chef. That ability, however, cannot be tied to any more discussion of your former relationship with LeAnn, on any level.

He then demands an advance copy of the book, and warns Sheremet that neither of them is allowed to describe "any party or the marriage or the relationship of the parties" in public.

LeAnn Rimes’ Obsessive Stalking Of Brandi Glanville Is Getting Scary

Something Rimes clearly feels it’s OK for her to do—she even sang about her marital drama, and her affair with Eddie Cibrian, who was married to Glanville at the time, in a number of songs on her album, Spitfire.

Just prior to the album’s release Rimes talked to the Daily Mail about one of the songs in particular, Borrowed

It's definitely been a turbulent four years and to say I've been on several rollercoasters is an understatement.

Obviously, [my affair with Eddie] was a very controversial topic to write about, and as hard as it was for me to write [Borrowed], I think it painted at true picture of that situation,.

I wasn't being hard on myself when I wrote it—that line about feeling pathetic is just true—but I wanted to describe a very stark moment in my life.

You just feel in completely limbo and I felt guilty too; it wasn't pretty at all. But I made my choices and I'm living with them. I know I'm not the first person to go through it and I won't be the last.

In a NY Post article, titled, “How cauliflower helped me get over LeAnn Rimes” Sheremet attempts to lay out his argument for why his book isn’t about LeAnn Rimes, all while talking about LeAnn Rimes.

LeAnn Rimes Continues Campaign To Be Most Disgusting Person On Earth

Bear with us here.

From the NY Post:

I would try to be her manager, director, creative consultant, friend, lover and husband all at once. I was always trying to advance her career and I could never turn it off. It ended up consuming us.

Looking back, it seems crazy we married that young. You don’t know who you are at that point.

He continues:

“It’s not a revenge cookbook,” says Sheremet, who finalized his divorce in 2010. “It’s more about eating real, nutrient-rich food rather than dieting.”

After years of eating poorly on the road with Rimes, his first days in New York were far from virtuous.

“I was partying, eating and drinking too much,” he recalls.

But cooking his own food and developing these recipes — including cauliflower steak with romesco sauce — helped him recover from the mental trauma of divorce.

“I had no idea that the knowledge that my grandmother gave me as a kid would save my life,” he says.

The article concludes:

He describes his relationship with Rimes as “cordial” but admits they don’t keep in regular contact. “I ran into her one time in Laguna Beach, [Calif.,]” he says.

“I saw my wife was talking to someone, but I couldn’t see who it was and, sure enough, it turned out to be LeAnn. My wife just introduced herself and they started talking. She’s ballsy, but it was one of the weirdest moments of my life!”

Meanwhile, showing a lack of self-awareness to rival even even that of his ex-wife’s, Sheremet insists he’s “over” Rimes and urges her to move on.

He tells In Touch:

The lawyers wanted to know what details I included about LeAnn [in my book] . I just don’t get it. She already killed my happiness the first time around. [It’s like], 'Move on already, LeAnn. I’ve moved on!'

I worked very hard on this book and I’m proud of it. I’m on people’s radar because of my past with her. I can’t erase my past; I referred to it and was very respectful. I’m not the one who cheated.

Just to clarify how much he’s over all the Rimes drama, Sheremet made sure to focus his entire book premise around her, along with his marketing campaign.

Dean Sheremet has remained pretty tight-lipped ever since LeAnn Rimes had an affair with Eddie Cibrian - but not anymore.

Although LeAnn, Eddie and Brandi Glanville have traded public, extremely angry insults over the years Dean never really said much, aside from maybe a tweet here and there.

For the first time since the scandal hit the headlines, he is opening up about what happened - how he found out about the affair, his relationship with LeAnn, and, most interestingly, how much she has changed from the woman he used to know.

According to Dean, the relationship was failing long before she had an affair, because they were so focused on being business partners. Having said that, she hasn't had a hit since they were together:

"As it went on, the team became toxic. But when we were working together, we were brilliant," he told Us. "The dumbest thing she ever did for her career was divorce me... Because we were such a good team. The last hit song she had was when she was with me. It was 'Nothing Better to Do.'"

On his initial opinion of LeAnn's Northern Lights co-star Eddie:

"He was a good looking guy. I just remember being like, 'Oh, God, just another one of those Hollywood pretty boys.' If you’re in a room with him, he’s probably one of the most charming people you’ll ever meet. But I wouldn’t trust him as far as I could throw this fucking table... He just felt like one of those guys from the beginning. A total schmoozer. Very Hollywood. I never bought his schtick. But I wasn’t worried."

On how he finally realized LeAnn and Eddie were having an affair:

"I’ll never forget this, there was this bar that everyone hung out at after set and I remember coming down the stairs and seeing the two of them shooting pool together," he recalled. "I could just tell by the body language that everything had changed... She’s shooting pool, shooting tequila, in a tight tank, tight jeans, over the knee boots and she’s standing across from him, playing with the pool cue. All of a sudden, there was a huge shift."

"I totally felt foolish. I felt like this pathetic husband hanging around. I was very aware of how others were looking at me," he shared, adding that the eventual confrontation was "really emotional."

And, most fascinatingly, how far LeAnn has moved from being a gifted musician to being a tabloid joke:

"She really lives on the adoration of others. I could be speaking out of turn but this is my perspective," he shared. "She lives and dies on the perception of herself. I sympathize with that cause she’s been famous since she was 12 years old so she doesn’t know anything else. In L.A., there’s the paparazzi and that false sense of success, false security that you’re still relevant. If you’re in the magazines, then you matter. And that carried over to the divorce. She became even more 'famous.'"
