In town for two performances at Orleans Showroom, Grammy Award-winning country singer-songwriter LeAnn Rimes and her husband, actor Eddie Cibrian, enjoyed an evening out at Hakkasan Restaurant & Nightclub on Saturday night at MGM Grand.
Friends and family, included Rimes’ parents Belinda Butler Rimes and Wilbur Rimes, joined the couple. The group arrived at the Asian restaurant about 11 p.m. Saturday and enjoyed the Hakka steamed dim sum platter, pan-seared Shanghai dumplings and the Hakka, the hotspot’s most popular cocktail.
Nearing 1 a.m. today, the group made its way to the fourth level of the mega-nightclub to a VIP booth on the main stage. DJ duo The Chainsmokers kicked off Saturday night’s party manning the decks and spinning their either-you-love-it-or-loathe-it hit “Selfie” (#lovesit).
As headliner DJ Steve Aoki took over the turntables, Rimes and Cibrian were seen dancing with each other and sharing a champagne toast. The party continued until about 3 a.m. — as Rimes had her second concert at Orleans Showroom tonight.
Two incidentals: While flipping through TV channels late Friday night/early Saturday morning, Cibrian’s sexy scene in “Living Out Loud” appeared. Fans know the scene. Four words: Tight, white boxer briefs. Oh, and actress Jessica Alba celebrated her 33rd birthday at Hakkasan on Friday night.
Mr. Robin Leach’s candid interview with Rimes was posted Thursday. Thanks to Brenton Ho of Powers Imagery for his photo gallery of Rimes and Cibrian.
