In July, Netflix was released Shania Twain: Not Just a Girl, a documentary following the life of one of Canada’s finest music exports. In it, Shania opens up about her abusive upbringing, the sexism she experienced in the country-music industry, living with Lyme disease, and her divorce. Which is a great opportunity to revisit the absolutely bonkers saga of Shania Twain’s divorce. have you heard about it? Basically, it involves Shania and her best friend swap husbands. If you’re confused, same. Here’s everything Shania said about the situation (which thankfully, had a happy ending).
In 1993, Shania Twain met a famous South African rock producer named Robert John Lang, commonly known as Mutt, who has collaborated with rock and pop stars from all walks of life including Celine Dion, Britney Spears and Lady Gaga. work done. (Sorry, but I don’t know what inspired their surname.) Anyway, six months after they met, Mutt and Shania got married, and they worked on two of her most famous albums together: Me. woman in (1995) and come on over (1997).
Sometime in the ’90s, Shania and Mutt met Marie-Anne Thebaud, a woman they hired to manage their Swiss chateau. Mary-Anne eventually took over some personal-supporting duties and became a close friend of Shania’s – the singer later described her as her own. “Confidant.” Shania and Mutt spent a lot of time with Marie-Anne and her husband, Frédéric Thebaud.
In 2008, Shania and Muto different After 14 years of marriage. Shania later remember That she didn’t know why her husband had abandoned her until the next day, when Frédéric (who, remember, was Marie-Anne’s husband at the time) broke the news that the monastery and Marie-Anne were having an affair. Shania recalled this discussion during a 2011 interview with Ellen DeGeneres: “Of course I didn’t believe him and I thought of course he was making it up. It was obviously just denial on my part. But he just said, ‘You know I have proof if you If you want. I’ve been following this for a few weeks now and I have hotel bills and all kinds of details.'”
This is where things start to get blurry. According to Shanaya, he talked to Mary-Anne about the affair, who pretended not to know what she was talking about and later changed her number!! Bile. In Shania’s 2011 memoir, she included some of the emails Mary-Anne sent her during her secret efforts with the monastery. One of them read, “I’m actually at the spa now… I really enjoy it!” Sick.
Shania also revealed in 2011 Oprah Interview That she had previously confessed to Marie-Anne when she suspected that her husband was cheating on her can only be said that she was delusional. Shania said, “Marie-Anne comforted me through the whole thing, telling me everything was fine.” “I believed in that and I accepted it as being real.”
In her new Netflix documentary, Twain compares their divorce to a car accident that killed her parents at the age of 22. “It was like a death,” she said. “It was a permanent end to many aspects of my life. It took a long time to get ready to rewrite and record.” On top of being cheated on by her husband and longtime collaborator, Shania was also battling Lyme disease, which she was diagnosed with in 2003. Suffering from minor blackouts and dizziness on stage, she retreated from the public eye. To make matters worse, the disease also caused dysphonia, a vocal-cord disorder that causes the muscles of the voice box to spasm involuntarily. “My voice was never the same again,” she said in the documentary. “In that quest to determine what was causing my lack of control over my voice, my husband left me for another woman. Now I’m on a completely low level. I need to move on with a music career. There doesn’t seem to be any point.”
While neither of them has publicly admitted to having an affair, Mutt and Mary-Anne officially began dating after the separation and are, as far as we know, still together. He and Shanaya have not reconciled and Shania has left no stone unturned to share her feelings for this lady. In 2015, she told Post She never sees Mary-Anne. “I don’t invite that trigger into my life,” she said. “He’s not my future – he’s my past.” same year, andy cohen asked her what she would say to Mary-Anne if she ever saw him, to which she replied, “I wish I never met you.” Can’t say that I blame him.
The last update on the situation came in 2018, when a reporter Shania if she talks to her ex, with whom she has a 21-year-old son. “Sure,” she said. “I mean, we don’t hang out with each other.” At the time, she said that she lived half a mile away from the monastery and Marie-Anne, but had never crossed paths with her. “He’s the last person on the planet I want to run away from,” she said.
Thank God. After their separation, Shania finds love again… Mary-Anne’s ex-husband, Frederick! Beginning in 2009, Shania and Frederick, who had apparently been cheated on, started spending a lot of time together.

From their account, it seems that they came close, making their respective marriages miserable. Shania later said, “After we were thrown off the same cliff together, we grabbed each other in the middle and it broke the fall.” Oprah, In August 2009, she and Frederick were photographed wearing rings during a sexy little canadian vacation with their children. (Shania and Frederick both share children with their families.) Shania’s reps told the press that they were not married or engaged, but Frederick also appeared in a little travel vlog Shanaya created the year they were riding a camel together in Egypt and biking together in London. Who among us hasn’t bonded with our friend’s ex-husband on the back of a camel?
Shania and Mutt finalized their divorce in 2010, and they and Frederick reunited on New Year’s Day 2011. married in Puerto Rico. Hurray! In her 2011 memoir, Shania describes her as a . Told “Romance God.” they are are still together And fall in love a lot.
