LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Marie-Anne Thiebaud and Robert Mutt Lange are reportedly still going strong. Marie-Anne Thiebaud (photo above) was the former employee of Shania Twain who stole the heart of Twain’s then husband. And while Shania Twain and Frederic Thiebaud announced their engagement today, Mutt Lange and Marie-Anne Thiebaud are reportedly still together.
In May 2008, Lange and Marie-Anne Thiebaud denied allegations of an affair. Lange told news at the time that the allegations were false. He added that he and Shania had just “literally just a growing apart, that’s all.” The couple had married in 1993. But by 2008, their marriage was crumbling.
Marie-Anne Thiébaud, a longtime secretary and manager of the couple’s chateau in Switzerland, had won Lange’s heart by summer 2008. He eventually split from Shania to be with Thiébaud, 37-years old at the time. Thiébaud would give that notable statement to news in May of 2008. “I know what you’re ringing to ask me about” she said to US Magazine “But, when marriages break up they break up for all sorts of complicated reasons, it’s never just one reason. And those reasons should be kept private.”
By June, Shania admitted her split and turned to her fans for support. “I have so much to say but I know the best way for me to speak is through my music. This is my therapy, my passion, and my love. I look forward to sharing it with all of you as I begin this new journey.” She admitted her heart was broken. “I need some time to heal this broken heart but make no mistake; I will be back and hopefully stronger than ever. Thank you my friends, from the bottom of my heart.”
One year later, Twain’s heart was no longer broken, having found “the love of her life” in Frederic Thiebaud, Maria-Anne’s ex husband. Twain and Thiebaud have not announced a wedding date.
