But what was the full story behind Shania’s two marriages?

According to People, Lange abruptly informed Shania in the summer of 2008 that he wanted to terminate their 14-year marriage, but he didn’t fully explain why.

Shania And Mutt Lange

Shania sought guidance from Marie-Anne, her best friend, and personal assistant. Marie-Anne, don’t you think my husband is acting strangely? I asked. Telling Oprah, and Twain. She responded, “No, I don’t notice anything odd,”

Marie-Anne was telling a lie, as it turns out. It was said that she was cheating on Lange.

Shania eventually acknowledged the affair, even though Lange initially denied it, telling People that the breakup was “really just a growing apart.”

He discovered odd hotel receipts, phone bills, and even a lingerie set in his wife’s suitcase, according to the Daily Mail: “I did uncover the affair with my wife and Mutt,” Thiébaud admitted to Oprah.

“Guys, you need to notify [Shania] right away, I said. This is absurd. All you owe her is that.”

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Shania described how horrified she was when she initially learned the news: “I called [Marie-Anne] up.”

“I didn’t want to accuse her; I wanted to give her the chance to tell me herself.”

To prevent Shania from contacting her again, Marie-Anne changed her phone number after denying having an affair.
