Nearly three years ago, he and his ex-wife LeAnn Rimes split up after he discover her affair with Eddie Cibrian, and now Dean Sheremet shares more details about the events that lead up to the end of his marriage.

During an interview with Access Hollywood on Thursday (October 10), the 32-year-old recalls the infamous phone call that put an end to his marriage with the "Spitfire" singer.

"I had a call... from LeAnn," Sheremet explained. "She said, 'Well US Weekly may or may not have a picture of me and Eddie kissing.' I'm like, 'Whoa! What do you mean may or may not have a picture? What does that mean? So then... it unfolded from there."

Soon discovering that LeAnn and Eddie had been hooking up since meeting on the set of their 2009 Lifetime film "Northern Lights," her ex-husband revealed his struggles with emotions while trying to understand it all.

"The affair was, I mean, of all the things that I could have ever imagined would have happened, I never would have thought," Dean admitted. "I guess you have the assumption that the person that you're with would never do something like that. How close you were, I just never saw it coming. If anyone would have seen it, I thought that I would have."

Also discussing the end of his marriage, Dean said, "I don't know [if] I dodged a bullet... every relationship you learn from. I think that was my learning experience of what I needed to do to pick myself up and kind of do what I needed to do."

"It's hard to delineate where I stopped and LeAnn began. We were so intertwined. I was husband, I was father, I was manager. There were so many different roles, and it was hard to juggle all of those things when you just want to be in love with someone," he added.
