Is it cheating to tell a girl you are not with that you love them?

My husband insists that he did not cheat on me because he has always said "I love you" to his ex girlfriend that he hid his texts to from me for over a year. I found out and freaked out. We have been together for 6 years and recently became "open". We have rules and he thinks that what he did is not wrong.
