LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Marie-Anne Thiebaud and Robert Mutt Lange are reportedly still in love; the romance between Marie-Anne Thiebaud and Robert Mutt Lange is what ultimately resulted in this weekend’s news – the marriage of Shania Twain to the husband to her former employee.
In 2008, Shania Twain and Frederic Thiebaud started to grow close after her then employee, Marie-Anne Thiebaud, and husband, Mutt Lange, fell in love with each other. It would take two years until Shania Twain and Mutt Lange’s divorce would be finalized. But between 2008 and June 2010, Shania and Frederic Thiebaud, Marie-Anne Thiebaud’s husband, would grow close, confirming their relationship in 2009, announcing their engagement on December 20, and marrying on January 1, 2011.
When news hit about Mutt Lange and Marie-Anne Thiebaud in 2008, both denied any affair occurred. So what happened between Shania and Mutt Lange? Mutt Lange said that he had just grown apart from the woman he married in 1993. “[We had] literally just a growing apart, that’s all.”
Instead, Mutt Lange was growing close to his secretary and manager of the Lange-Twain chateau in Switzerland. By summer, Lange and Twain split.
When sought for news comment in the summer of 2008, Marie-Anne Thiebaud simple said that marriages sometimes fall apart for many “complicated reasons” and “never just one reason. And those reasons should be kept private.”
Shania by 2009 called her new love Frederic Thiebaud a true gentleman. He reportedly works for Swiss Nestle.
Shania credits her happiness today to her fans. In 2008, she said that one day her broken heart will be repaired and stronger than ever. “I need some time to heal this broken heart but make no mistake; I will be back and hopefully stronger than ever.” Shania credits fans to helping her overcome heartbreak. “Your overwhelming support reminds me to smile, no matter how deep the pain and to always be grateful for all the beautiful blessings in my life.”
