After watching Netflix’s Shania Twain: Not Just A Girl fans of the country legend Shania Twain learned a lot about Shania and her husband Frederic Thiebaud and the singer’s current endeavors. But what happened to their former partners? They allegedly cheated on Shania and Fred but did the affair ever turn into marriage?
Let’s explore what we know as of this article.
Are Marie-Anne Thiébaud And Mutt Lange Married Or Separated?
Marie-Anne Thiébaud and Mutt Lange allegedly cheated on each other’s partners behind their back. Shania Twain, ex-wife of Mutt, and Frederic Thiebaud found each other as they became each other’s support during this ordeal.
Eventually, they fell in love and tied the knots less than a year after the singer’s divorce. They are still in the limelight appearing as a perfect couple.
However, the same cannot be said about Marie-Anne and Mutt’s current relationship. Both of the involved keep themselves away from the public eye. But considering the fact that Mutt who is a South African who later built a thriving career as a music producer in the States, is still living in Switzerland suggests that the two of them might’ve been married and are still together.
As reported, it was Shania’s idea first to move to Switzerland in the first place so that she could focus on raising children along with taking care of herself because of her own health issues.
Shania had also shared that she never got anything from Marie-Anne, the singer’s one-time best friend. So, all the details are hazy including Marie-Anne and Mutt Lange’s current relationship status.
Marie-Anne Thiébaud And Mutt Lange Affair Details
Best friend and personal assistant of singer Shania Twain was Marie-Anne Thiébaud. She had an extramarital relationship with Shania’s ex-husband Mutt Lange, which led to the dissolution of their 14-year marriage. At the 1993 Fan Fair music event, Robert John “Mutt” Lange and Shania first crossed paths.
Robert “Mutt,” who contacted her record company, obtained her phone information from the company and made contact with her. In December of the same year, after their six-month working relationship took a romantic turn, the Zambian composer and producer married Shania. They became a power couple after that personally and professionally.
“As a producer, he is very much a director as well; very hands-on and very talented. So, he was driving in the direction of the sound. He didn’t drive the direction of my voice and never tried to change me,” Shania told The Guardian in 2018. She added, “He was never part of the creative development in that sense. He drove the instrument choices, the sound, the groove. He was a bass player as a musician, and he was very driven by the rhythm”.
The married couple welcomed their son Eja on 12 August 2001. After her vocal cords started to falter, she chose to raise her son in Switzerland.
When it seemed like nothing could go wrong, Mutt approached Shania in 2008 and announced his intention to dissolve their 14-year marriage. Shania made the decision to confide in Marie-Ann, her best friend and “confidant”. The singer reportedly hired Marie to work for her in Switzerland to take care of their 46-room chateau, according to Belfast Telegraph.
Living just half a mile apart, the women had been pregnant together and when Shania worried that her marriage was on the rocks, it was Marie-Anne she confided in. While appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show, she told Marie, “Marie-Anne, don’t you think my husband is acting strange?” Marie replied by saying, “No, I don’t see anything strange”.
But, she painfully learns from Marie-Ann’s husband Frédéric Thiébaud that his wife was having affair with Shania’s husband Mutt. Fred told in Oprah’s show, “I said, ‘Guys, now you have to tell her. This is ridiculous. You just owe her that”. Once they refused, Fred who later became Shania’s second husband revealed it to her.
The singer of Any Man of Mine said that Frédéric was the one who truly notified her about Marie-relationship Anne with Lange during an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres in 2011. Twain recalled, “I didn’t believe him and I thought for sure he was making it up. I was obviously just in denial on my part”.
Shania told Oprah, “Fred and Mutt were good friends, and Marie-Anne and I were good friends”. Shania confronted Marie-Anne calling her over to clarify what was going on. But, she refused to reveal that anything happened between her and Mutt.
