Shania Twain's divorce from record producer Robert "Mutt" Lange has been finalized, according to documents filed last week in Switzerland, which is where Shania lives. The couple's separation was announced on May 15, 2008. The break-up was rumored to be due to Lange's affair with Twain's former assistant and friend, Marie-Anne Thiebaud, who managed their chateau in Switzerland. Shania previously admitted she wanted to "go away and disappear" when her marriage ended.
Now it seems that Shania has since grown close to Thiebaud's spurned husband Frederic, with long-running rumors of a romance between the pair. Now Shania is a single woman again after 14 years of marriage, she seems to be moving forward with her new man Frederic, it will be interesting to see how that relationship develops.
Twain (44) and Lange (61) first met at a music festival in the summer of 1993 and married at the end of that year, just six months later. The former couple shares a son, eight-year-old Eja D'Angelo. Lange is best known as the producer behind the massive hits of his now ex wife, as well as Def Leppard and Bon Jovi. Twain is preparing for a new TV series, Why Not? With Shania Twain, for the Oprah Winfrey Network. Also, Twain's recent successful stint on "American Idol" as a guest judge and mentor has added her to the bevy of celebrity names rumored to replace Simon Cowell.
