Shania Twain opens up about her “beautifully twisted” marriage to husband Frédéric Thiébaud in the latest edition of AARP magazine.In case you didn’t know the story, Shania’s 14-year-marriage to producer Robert “Mutt” Lange ended in 2008, and soon after she found out he had been having an affair with their friend and personal assistant,Marie-Anne Thiébaud, who was Frédéric’s wife. “There were days I didn’t really care if tomorrow came,” she shares, noting she suffered from depression after finding out about Lange’s affair.
Frédéric was actually the one who told her about the affair, and Shania began to lean on him, and things eventually turned romantic. “Survival is everything,” Shania says. “I was in quicksand. I panicked, like everybody does, but I didn’t surrender. I found a way out.”
As for their relationship, she notes, “It’s twisted. But so beautifully twisted.”
