LeAnn Rimes and her husband of seven years, Dean Sheremet, are divorcing, the country singer has announced on her official website.

"After much thoughtful mutual consideration, Deane and I have agreed to move forward with dissolving our marriage," the 27-year-old wrote, using a different spelling of her husband's name.

"This decision was amicable and we remain committed and caring friends with great admiration for one another," the message added.

"Thank you so much for all of your continued love and support – it's deeply appreciated."

The How Do I Live singer and Dean – a former professional dancer who is now attending culinary school in New York - wed in 2002 when she was 19 and he was 21.

In recent weeks she has been linked to her Northern Lights co-star Eddie Cibruan who she first met while shooting the TV film at the end of last year.

Eddie filed for divorce from his wife last week after eight years of marriage.
