Eddie Cibrian's Affair With LeAnn Rimes Was Reason Why He Was Fired From "CSI: Miami"

Eddie Cibrian's romance with LeAnn Rimes is said to be the real reason why he has been fired from his "CSI: Miami" job. According to a new report, their scandalous affair and his lack of social skills on the set were the determining factors.

Earlier this month, it was reported that producers have decided not to renew his contract for the CBS crime drama's upcoming ninth season season. According to the report, since Adam Rodriguez, who plays Eric Delko in the show, will be returning as a regular, the producers would want to focus on the core cast, leaving Cibrian the odd one out of the group.

However, an In Touch Weekly source claims that the producers were actually pissed about the tabloid headlines he is generating with his affair with the country songstress.

The source said, "Eddie pretty much wrote his own ticket onto the show, and his own ticket off. I don't think the producers were enamored with all the headlines Eddie was generating, and he didn't make a lot of friends on the set, either."

"The scandal created a lot of hard feelings," another insider said of Cibrian and Rimes' affair. "No one's at all sad to see him go. Very few of the cast members liked him anyway."

"Eddie would come to work and brag about trips he'd taken with LeAnn. They called him 'Lucky Eddie' behind his back."
