People were kind of shocked that singer Shania Twain, 43, was seen at the airport earlier this month with the husband of the mistress who is said to have broken up her marriage of 15 years. Shania and her husband Mutt Lange lived a quiet life in a compound in Switzerland, where Mutt is said to have cheated on Shania with his married estate manager. Shania and her husband were good friends with the other woman and her family, and Shania trusted the woman and felt understandably betrayed by both parties.
Shania may have set up photo opportunities with new boyfriend
It looks like Shania is finding solace in the arms of the hot husband of her ex’s new girlfriend. Both In Touch and The National Enquirer have photos of the pair out together in Key West, Florida, where they’re seen having lunch, laughing as they take a stroll and even parachuting together. There aren’t many paparazzi in Key West and considering the quality and variety of the photos of Shania out with her new man, I would say it’s safe to assume she’s more than happy to share her new relationship with the world and of course her cheating ex.
The National Enquirer confronted Shania’s estranged husband with the news that she’s now with Swiss businessman Frederic Theibaud, the husband of his mistress, Marie-Anne Thiebaud. He said it was the first he’s heard of it, but he gives them his blessing:
When we broke the news to Mutt that Shania was dating his love rival, he seemed to give the extraordinary “wife swapping” arrangement a green light!
“I had no idea at all! Seriously, I am out of the loop and I just didn’t know,” Mutt told The Enquirer on December 8 – four days after Shania and Frederic, 38, were first photographed together.
When asked if he was “upset” Shania was stepping out with Frederic, Mutt replied: “Not at all. He’s a great guy. I have no idea that is even the case. They are very good friends anyway…
“I wouldn’t mind if it was the case they were dating, not at all.”

Mutt went on to backtrack a little and deny he’s in a relationship with Marie-Anne, saying “The whole story was just a story as we are just friend in the same way Shania and Fred are.” I bet they are.
Good for Shania for moving on and rubbing it in her ex’s face. I hope her new boyfriend is decent to her. If they’re just playing an elaborate hoax on the media and their cheating spouses I wouldn’t be surprised if it ends up turning into something more.
