World News – AU – How Shania Twain and her ex-best friend swapped partners after cheating scandal discovered


Shania Twain was at the top of her game in the late 90s and early 90s

With 75 million albums sold worldwide, five Grammy Awards on her coat and numerous hits under her leopard-print cape, the country music singer had the world at her feet

But a cheating scandal involving her then husband Robert John Lange and her best friend would soon rock her world, as was a mysterious illness that left her singing speechless.

So what exactly happened to the best-selling female country music artist of all time, and why did she take a 15-year hiatus from music? Let’s take a look…

Twain revealed she contracted the bacterial infection after being bitten by a tick while riding horseback in Virginia in 2003

She was in the middle of her Up! Toured at the time, but the effects of the disease were immediate – the singer suffered from dizziness and almost fell off the stage every night, and she also almost lost her ability to sing.

« It took years to figure out what was affecting my voice, » she recently said on the UK daytime show Loose Women. « I’d say probably a good seven years before a doctor could find out that it was nerve damage to my vocal cords directly caused by Lyme disease

« Our voice is such an important part of our personal expression, and for a singer, a singer, obviously it’s devastating in so many ways »

As her health deteriorated, Twain developed problems with her vocal cords and eventually lost her voice. She was forced to take a break from her performances, taking a total of 15 years away from music

Not yet diagnosed with Lyme disease, Twain thought it was just fatigue because she had just left the tour and was a new mom, but her ailments continued

“No voice specialist could explain,” she said in March on Variety’s The Big Ticket podcast. “They were like, ‘It’s probably psychological.’ I didn’t not bought and I was sure it was a physiological thing

« I couldn’t call the dog I was not heard very well on the phone I could not speak in noisy environments »

Seven years later she was diagnosed with Lyme disease Twain has since undergone several throat surgeries to correct the damage and in doing so was told she was at risk of losing her singing voice But the pain was too debilitating to give up the surgery Fortunately, her surgeries went well and she is able to start again

« What they do is put small Gore-Tex braces on either side of your larynx to compensate for weak nerves, » Twain explained on the podcast. « And it worked When I laugh now I’m the loudest in the room « 

When her voice returned in 2012, the star made up for lost time Twain began her two-year residency Shania: Still The One in Las Vegas, giving 105 shows at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace She then embarked on her Rock This Country tour in 2015, which was a nationwide hit.

The South African record producer and songwriter was behind some of Twain’s greatest hits, including ‘You’re Still the One’, ‘From This Moment On’ and ‘Man! I feel like a woman! « 

In 2000, the couple moved to the Swiss town of Corseaux, overlooking Lake Geneva, and the following year they welcomed their only child, a son named Eja, now 19 years old.

However, in 2008, their 14-year marriage came to an abrupt end when it was revealed that Lange was having an affair with Twain’s best friend, Marie-Anne Thiébaud

The couple had hired Thiébaud to take care of their 46-room Swiss castle, but Twain considered her more than just a personal assistant – Marie-Anne was his best friend and confidante They were the same age and had interests similar, and women bonded more when they both got pregnant at the same time

« During the first week after finding out about the case, I was ready to die – to lie down forever and never wake up Or hurt someone, » Twain wrote in his 2011 memoir, From This Moment On

« I was ready to do something desperate, but in reality there was nothing else to do but suffer. I was disgusted than another woman’s thirst for an improvement in her lifestyle was worth the devastation of my family « 

Lange and Marie-Anne are reportedly still together and live in the same Swiss town as Twain and her current husband

In a strange twist, he was the husband of Marie-Anne Thiébaud, the same woman with whom Lange cheated

It was Frédéric – who shares daughter Johanna, now 20, with Marie-Anne – who found evidence regarding the case and broke the shocking news to Twain

« alone », she wrote in her memoirs

As Lange and Marie-Anne left them to start a new life together, Frédéric and Twain found themselves picking up the pieces.The couple bonded over their shared pain and therefore fell in love

“It’s twisted But so beautifully twisted,” Twain – who struggled with depression at the time – told AARP The Magazine in January. “There were days I didn’t really care if tomorrow was coming Survival is everything I was in quicksand I panicked, like everyone else, but I didn’t surrender I found a way out « 

They publicly announced their engagement in December 2010 and tied the knot on New Years Day in 2011, exchanging vows in a sunset ceremony in Puerto Rico

« [He] has been the most constant companion and support for [my son] Eja and me And after going through the suffering of his family breaking up at the same time and under the same extreme circumstances, he understands me better than anyone, ”Twain wrote on his website before their wedding

“We leaned on each other through the ups and downs, taking turns holding each other,” she added. “We got stronger and more loved ones through it all, just like our children, Eja and Johanna « 

In 2017, Twain released her fifth studio album Now – her first offering in 15 years She used her grief as inspiration for the album, although some songs she wrote weren’t retouched because she said the lyrics were steeped in blasphemy

« If I’m really mad I’ll say ‘f – k’ a lot, and if I write that word will be in every line, » she said, while promoting the album. back then « There was a song I wrote about my cheating friend and there was a lot of bullshit in there I hated it so that’s the best word to use when you hate someone »

Twain then launched her second Las Vegas residency, Let’s Go !, in December 2019 She was scheduled to perform at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino until December 2020, but was forced to postpone her tour to March. due to the global pandemic
