Canadian Singer, Shania Twain Opens Up In Tell-all Documentary About Her Husband’s Devastating Affair With Her Best Friend

Canadian singer and songwriter, Shania Twain has recorded a tell-all documentary where she talks about her husband’s devastating affair with her best friend.

The 56-year-old mother of one poured out her heart in the documentary which will air on Netflix.

The ‘That Don’t Impress Me Much’ star who empowered many women across the globe with her incredible vocals and insightful lyrics said she actually suffered much heartache finding out about the affair.

Shania said that, having been a role model to females around the world due to the powerful lyrics of her song, it was an extra hard pill for her to swallow when she learnt her ex-husband, Robert ‘Mutt’ Lange had been having an affair with her personal assistant who was also her best friend.

The singer described the feeling as similar “to losing her parents” in the teaser clip for her new upcoming documentary.

Reflecting back on what is now history, Shania also felt at the time that she “had lost her voice forever”.

Shania discovered that Robert had been unfaithful and had been having an affair with her then-personal assistant, best friend and “confidant” Marie-Anne Thiébaud in 2008.

Speaking about the situation with Oprah Winfrey previously, Shania told the host:

“I said, ‘Marie-Anne, don’t you think my husband is acting strange?”

“And she said, ‘No, I don’t see anything strange.'”

Shania was later informed of the infidelity by Marie-Anne’s then-husband, Frédéric Thiébaud – who had found out himself.
