Shania Twain’s husband cheated on her

Shania TwainShania Twain filed for a divorce from her husband, Robert “Mutt” Lange last week because he cheated on her, sources say. Marie Ann Thiebaud, longtime secretary and manager of the couple’s chateau in Switzerland, is reportedly Lange’s mistress and the reason behind the breakup. A source told People magazine: “Mutt and Marie Ann left their spouses for each other.” However, Lange denies this, saying, “It’s not the reason.” Meanwhile, Shania is said to be devastated, with an insider saying: “This came out of left field. She loved him.” Another source close to the Canadian superstar said she is coping with the help of “a close-knit group of family and friends.” Twain, 42, and Lange, 59, married in 1993. They have a six-year-old son together.

    If true, then she definitely deserves better. Next time, I hope she feels like a man instead of a cheating rat.

    However, Lange denies this, saying, “It’s not the reason.”….so in other words his affair is not the reason for their split…hmmmm, let me guess….it’s all her fault that he cheated, right? No good cheater! I understand that some marriages don’t work out, but there is no excuse for cheating! What, you can’t keep your pecker in your pants long enough to pack a suitcase and tell your wife that you can’t handle being married anymore? After you have done so, go get all the girlfriends you want……slimy cheater!!

    theres always two sides to a story, considering no one knows shania personally, or her husband, mabe the marriage was dying. yes he cheated..but why? theres always another reason besides “hes a slimy cheater”

  4. WHAT • May 21, 2008 @ 5:27 PM

    WHAT??? Are you kidding me… there is no need to cheat… dying relationship or not!! If there was nothing left to fight for, then leave. BUT, cheating proves nothing more than a lack of respect for your spouse!! There are no other reasons… leave and then screw your whores… and not before!!

  5. Nancy • May 21, 2008 @ 8:02 PM

    Exactly!! And at least have a little respect for your 6 year old while you’re at it!!

  6. tributegirl • May 21, 2008 @ 8:10 PM

    I agree, if a marriage has reached a point where one is even considering cheating, then it’s time to get out of the marriage. Cheating only adds more hurt, and it’s not necessary.

    xAhEmx yo Shania I’m single ha

  8. quinn • May 21, 2008 @ 11:29 PM

    He’s scum if he cheated. Off with his…..

  9. xray • May 22, 2008 @ 9:49 AM

    don’t understand these filthy rich people and their behavior — he supposedly cheats on the holy grail of canadian women with the hired help? and this guy was supposed to have some common sense? i agree, off with his …

  10. Tony Friesen • May 22, 2008 @ 11:12 AM

    You guys are all missing the point. Shania is now available! Although I do feel bad for the real victims in these events.

  11. thatsright • May 22, 2008 @ 10:13 PM

    i will change my opinion wen i c a pic of the girl he cheated with…..if she tops shania then…sorry hun ur out:P we must spread our seed!!!!!!!

  12. leonapeters • May 23, 2008 @ 1:17 AM

    does not matter what the other ahem….woman looks like. he should have called it quits then spread his seed. shania can do so much better. she really is a stunning woman and he is a stupid man. very ugly physically. lots of men are now rejoicing and hopefully she finds someone who will treat her right and not be a filthy snake in the grass.

  13. Too Funny • May 23, 2008 @ 9:20 AM

    I know stage hands that have met her and she is a real bitch. One stage hand asked for her autograph for their kid and she seemed fine, asked the person to stay there and then had security through him out!! He was fired all for asking her for her autograph!!

  14. Anonymous • May 23, 2008 @ 9:54 AM

    whether she is a Bitch or not, NO ONE deserves to be cheated on! If the relationship was dwindling then get out. She is gorgeous and i don’t think she’ll have any trouble getting a new guy…who is physically attractive as well.

  15. Too Funny • May 23, 2008 @ 10:45 AM

    Did I say she deserved it? And it’s immature and unrealistic to say NO ONE deserves to be cheated on. Some people get exactly what they deserve. And what does being physically attractive have to do with it? If he was hot he wouldn’t have cheated?

  16. Nancy • May 23, 2008 @ 11:44 AM

    “It’s immature and unrealistic to say NO ONE deserves to be cheated on. Some people get exactly what they deserve.”

    I agree that NO ONE deserves to be cheated on…not even those who have cheated on us. If they were to get exactly what they deserved it wouldn’t be to retalliate by cheating on them…it would be, as said above, “OFF WITH THEIR….” And, I think being ‘physically attractive’ means that Mutt is a MUTT, not that an attractive man would not have cheated!! I think Mutt should have considered himself lucky that someone as physically beautiful as Eileen was physically attracted to him at all! Let’s just see how long his gold-digging receptionist sticks with him!! I don’t think that she is a ‘B*tch’ for having that stage-hand fired and thrown out. Do you know how many nut cases are out there trying to get close to stars through jobs like this? He was supposed to be doing his job not hounding her for her autograph while she is preparing for a concert.

  17. Anne • May 23, 2008 @ 12:22 PM

    If he fell out of love with Shania or vice versa, whatever, then own up to it and call it quits and move on. Love and marriage is not always chisled in stone forever.

  18. IB • May 23, 2008 @ 1:34 PM

    I agree there is no good reason to cheat, however, Mutt’s lived in France/Switzerland for years where having a mistress is very common and accepted.
    Unfortunately for him he married a gal from Northern Ontario who would probably have kicked his butt, if not cut up his toys with her handy chainsaw.
    Don’t ever cheat on a northerner!

  19. george p • May 23, 2008 @ 2:36 PM

    hi shania?
    i’m waiting for the phone to ring.if it doesn’t,i’ll know its you. love,george

  20. Nancy • May 23, 2008 @ 3:06 PM

    LOL, George!!

    “Mutts lived in France/Switzerland for years where having a mistress is very common and accepted.”

    I know you’re not defending Mutt but I have never heard of mistresses being accepted in France or Switzerland??? Even though he’s not from either country it’s okay to have a mistress if you live there then??

    Mutt’s looks has nothing to do with whether he is capable of cheating it just means that he was lucky to find a gorgeous woman……

    for my money, most women that look as good as she does are bitches, because they know that they look as good as they do. and probably because they have to spend a lot of money to stay that way.

    the whole marriage thing was really a farce anyway though … the only surprise is it lasted as long as it did. like celine dion and her creepy fossil angelil, they only got together because of work — he had what she needed to succeed and make a lot of bucks, and she was a trophy for him, and a way to make more $$$$ that i’m sure he didn’t need either.

    either way, i wish her luck as she picks up and moves along. i just feel sorry for the kid.

  23. Nancy • May 25, 2008 @ 9:42 PM

    Yeah well, I have had the pleasure of meeting some not so pretty b*tches as well as pretty ones. I’m sure some of you have as well. Some people are just totally stuck-up! I’ve never met Shania, so I can’t judge her personality. She didn’t deserve being cheated on though, not in my opinion.

  24. xray • May 26, 2008 @ 1:27 AM

    how would you know, nancy? perhaps shania was the third in a threesome with the gainly maid/manager and is jilted at taking the bronze medal? until the whole story comes out, which likely never will, you’re in no position to know what she “deserved”.

    the only one that didn’t “deserve” any of this is their kid, who sadly gets raked thru the muck while the parents scrap it out.

  25. Nancy • May 26, 2008 @ 3:30 AM

    Well, I know because as I stated above….NO ONE DESERVES TO BE CHEATED ON!! DUH! And, there are two sides to EVERY story…so with THAT said, you are in no position to KNOW f*ck all!!!

  26. Dennis • June 2, 2008 @ 1:37 PM

    Its like somebody said. There is two sides to the breakup. And usually the man gets blamed. Weather he did anything or not.
    I myself am not putting the blame on either party. Because I don’t no the whole truth. Shania Twain is a great singer and a very beautiful lady. If she is leaving her husband. I wish she was leaving her husband. So she could be with me. I have always loved her. Even tho we have never met.

    why do people cheat

  28. Anonymous • June 5, 2008 @ 1:37 PM

    people cheat because they are unhappy and looking for love…sad but true.

  29. Nancy • June 5, 2008 @ 9:34 PM

    I think people cheat because for a certain length of time they are ‘airheads’…literally! Meaning that their brain is not located in their head for that span of time! They believe they will not get caught. The thrill of doing something they shouldn’t be doing.

  30. Billie Bob • June 11, 2008 @ 3:55 PM

    I’m married to a babe better looking than Shania, and I would never cheat on her. Plus my honey isn’t a bitch.

    If you ever get a hot babe for a wife you must treat her right, and she will treat you right it’s simple.

    It’s an amazing reward to take a perfect female to bed and have sex with her. Too bad Mutt is a jerk.

  31. Nancy • June 12, 2008 @ 6:55 PM

    That’s right Billy Bob! Respect is a two way street, and a big part of what love is. You’re a lucky guy and your wife is a lucky gal!!

  32. Scott • June 26, 2008 @ 8:29 AM

    Heh heh, I can’t believe that Mutt would cheat on her. I mean…imagine cheating on Shania Twain, lol, it just doesn’t make sense. The guy had the most perfect wife in the world ! What a retard.

  33. Scott • June 26, 2008 @ 8:30 AM

    That would be kinda like if you were a woman, and Brad Pitt was your husband…and then cheating on him !

  34. Nancy • June 26, 2008 @ 9:44 PM

    I couldn’t imagine cheating on anyone. It really doesn’t take that long to pack a suitcase and say “It’s over. I can’t deal with this anymore.”, get your own place, then do whatever you want. Why cheat? I’ve never understood that!

  35. sarah • June 29, 2008 @ 11:45 PM

    shania i think that you should find a new man if he had the decience to cheat on you he doesn’t dezeve you. and i think that you a really nice person and your my role modle.i love you music and everything about you. i’m your biggest fan. i also think that you should exspess your feelings in your songs.just start again and be happy.
    i think mutt is a jerk and the women with him anne-marrie is a bitch, and like other people are say that your a bitch your not so whatever you do or anything i will always understand. life is hard so just keep smilings and things will always get better after awhile. and be there for your son cause he will need you and he’s oldenofe to know that his dad isn’t going to be living with him anymore and you. find a friend that you can trust and that will lisson and talk to them about whats happened.
    good luck. love sarah xoxox

    ” Obviously Mutt didn’t love or respect Shania otherwise he would’ve never cheated on her. I don’t understand why people cheat when they are in a relationship!
    If things are not good then tell your spouse
    it’s over!”
    Instead of cheating what is wrong with people today?
    What a lousy example for their son Eja.
    You are a fool Mutt’ You had a beautiful wife
    & son and you screwed it up!
    Now it’s time suffer the concequences and realize that you have lost a good woman.
    I can relate my ex- husband cheated on me
    but i left him yrs ago.
    i know Shania will find someone way better.

  38. Nigel • September 15, 2008 @ 11:21 AM

    ” I cannot believe what an idiot Mutt is
    why cheat on a gorgeous woman like Shania?”
    Their son Eja is suffering the most through the divorce.
    Guess there a few people on here who are jelous of Shania, my dad met her and she is definately not a bitch!
    she is down-to earth and is an amazing performer.
    Shania deserves all the happiness in theworld.
