Shania Twain Talks About Ex-Husband’s Affair (Video)

Shania Twain has broken her silence and says the breakup of her marriage in 2008 left her devastated.

“I didn’t want to kill myself but I didn’t want to live,” a somber Shania Twain said in an interview that aired Tuesday on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show.’ “Our lives were intertwined in every respect and I really was completely shocked.”

Twain was referring to the discovery that her then-husband Robert “Mutt” Lange was having an affair with her assistant and close friend, Marie-Anne Thiebaud.

But in a twist of fate that plays out like a movie, Shania found love with the other jilted party in the affair — Marie-Anne’s ex-husband, Frédéric Thiébaud. He was the one who helped the singer get back on her feet and see the split as “a very positive thing.”

“Frédéric Nicolas Thiébaud has been a true gift to me as a compassionate, understanding friend,” Shania wrote in a letter to fans on her website, “and over time, an amazing love has blossomed from this precious friendship.”

Shania and Frédéric were married in a beach-side, sunset ceremony in Rincon, Puerto Rico on New Year’s Day 2011.
