Despite a published report, LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian have not been advised by their lawyers to pretend “play nice” with his ex-wife Brandi Glanville, just so that the “Real Housewives” star will help them defend against the verbal abuse lawsuit brought on by couple’s former housekeeper, Gloria Cevallos.

The story originated in OK!, a magazine that doesn’t exactly have a stellar track record for its reporting about the couple. According to tabloid’s latest tale, Rimes and Cibrian were told to stay on Glanville’s “good side” because they need her support in court. As the outlet notes, Cevallos worked for Glanville when she was married to Cibrian, so her “testimony could swing the lawsuit either way.” A so-called source for the tab adds that Glanville “seems to have her ex’s back for now.”

We imagine Rimes and Cibrian’s lawyers have a much better legal strategy for tackling the lawsuit than having the couple suck up to his ex wife. Regardless, Rimes and Cibrian’s rep says this story is completely false.

Of course, OK! is the same outlet that fabricated a story last month that claimed Cibrian was “caught cheating” on Rimes. And the country singer recently slammed the tabloid for repeatedly pumping out false stories about her marriage, tweeting, “If you combine OK! Magazine and The National Enquirer’s stories that they’re ‘investigating’ this week you get… Eddie doesn’t want to have kids with me so he’s been cheating on me since April & we’re headed for that 50 million dollar divorce we were gonna go through almost a year ago.”

Still, Gossip Cop poked around with other sources, including one close to the Cibrian and Rimes, who called the claims in OK! “absurd.”
