Leann Rimes and Dean Sheremet have finalised their divorce.

The 'How Do I Live' hitmaker reached a settlement in December 2009, but are now legally no longer married.

LeAnn was discovered to have had an affair with her 'Northern Lights' co-star Eddie Cibrian early in 2009, leading to the trouble for both parties – Eddie is currently in the process of splitting from his wife Brandi Glanville.

LeAnn recently admitted she was aware her affair with the married actor was a "selfish" act, but says she is glad of its outcome as the pair are in love.

She said: "I did one of the most selfish things that I possibly could do, in hurting someone else. I take responsibility for everything I've done. I hate that people got hurt. But I don't regret the outcome."

The 27-year-old singer and Eddie are now in a committed relationship, but admits she knew her behaviour was not acceptable.

She said: "It was very emotionally driven. I never once thought what I was doing was ok."
