Brandi Glanville has accused ex-husband Eddie Cibrian of asking her for child support.

The 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star - who has two sons, Jake, six, and Mason, 10, with Eddie - has hit back at fans who have slammed her for ''taking cheap shots'' at her former spouse in her new book 'Drinking And Dating'.

She insists Eddie - who recently bought a $3 million six-bedroom mansion in the Hidden Hills, Los Angeles with wife Leann Rimes - has been reaching out to her and asking her to contribute financially to support their children.

She wrote on Twitter: ''2 all these young unmarried bloggers writing about getting over divorce¬ seeing ur children grow up 1/2 the time,walk a mile in my shoes.

''Im not taking cheap shots at my ex in my new book cuz its all true,&now mr fancy new cars&house man is asking ME for child support!Uknownada

''''everytime I take 1 step frwd I get a lawyers letter that takes me 3 steps back so wen people say move on, I say 2 my ex LET ME! Just STOP

''Going to stay positive and focus on my new book & let my lawyer handle the rest.Who is coming to the Grove tomorrow night at 7pm?? (sic)''

A source told E! News Brandi has been advised by her lawyer not to discuss the support payments which Eddie has allegedly asked for.
