Washington, Aug 30 (ANI): Canadian singer Shania Twain has finally spoken out about her relationship with her ex-secretary’s husband.
The Grammy winner posted a video to tell her fans that she’s doing well and talked about her “dear friend”.
Twain marriage to Robert “Mutt” Lange fell apart in May 2008 following his affair with her best friend, Marie-Anne Thiébaud, a longtime secretary and manager of the couple’s chateau in Switzerland.
In a nearly 15-minute video travelogue of her past year, the singer is seen enjoying skydiving and riding camels in Egypt.
“I want you to see for yourself that we are doing fine. I feel very alive and well, ready to take on the gift of another year,” People magazine quoted her as saying.
While Twain does not clarify whether she and Fred Thiébaud are an item, she called him as “a dear friend and true gentleman.”
“[He] has been the most constant companion and support for both Eja and I. And having gone through the suffering of his family splitting apart at the same time and under the same extreme circumstances, he understands me better than anyone.
“We leaned on one another through the ups and downs, taking turns holding each other up. We’ve become stronger and closer through it all, as have our children, Eja and Johanna, Fred’s 8-year-old daughter,” she added.(ANI)
