Shania Twain married Frédéric Thiébaud, her ex-husband’s mistress’s ex-husband


That was fast! Shania Twain announced her engagement to her ex-husband’s mistress’s ex-husband just a few weeks ago, and now they’re married. Shania and Frédéric Thiébaud got hitched on Saturday in Puerto Pico, and it looks like only TMZ got the photos (here) and a short video (here). Both the bride and the groom wore white. According to People Magazine, Shania and Frederic invited 40 family members and friends to the beach ceremony:

Shania Twain has gotten hitched! The country superstar and Frédéric Thiébaud got married in Puerto Rico on New Year’s Day, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“They were married at sunset in Rincon, Puerto Rico, in front of 40 of their closest family and friends,” says the rep.

The couple, who confirmed their engagement last month, became romantically involved in 2009, finding solace with each other after their spouses allegedly had an affair, breaking up both marriages.

In a letter to fans she posted on her Web site in December, Twain wrote, “In the last two and a half years of adjusting to life after separation and divorce, I needed to lean on others more often than I was accustomed to. These people have been gifts, and I am fortunate to have so many of these beautiful people – friends, family and beloved fans, [whose] support I cherish more deeply with each day that passes.”

“Talking about love,” she continued, “I am excited to share some personal news with you; I’m in love! Frédéric Nicolas Thiébaud has been a true gift to me as a compassionate, understanding friend and over time, an amazing love has blossomed from this precious friendship.”

I wish Shania and Frederic all the happiness in the world, I really do. If the official story is anywhere close to the truth – that Shania’s ex-husband Mutt Lange was boning his secretary, and Mutt left Shania for the chick, while Shania consoled herself in the arms of the chick’s ex-husband, who is now Shania’s current husband, while Mutt is currently engaged to his jumpoff… well, God bless. However, I’m starting to wonder – Crazy Days and Nights has done a series of pieces about how sketchy this whole thing is, and they even wonder aloud if it was Shania who had the instigating affair.

    Unusual but maybe like many couples that divorce and move on they find they were with the wrong person to begin with. Why stay in a marriage that is not working. I think she looks really happy in the one wedding pic I saw online.

    In the wake of all the breakups nice that some people are happy.

    They did this very quick.. OH yeah Valerie Bertinelli got married too.

  2. Rita says:

    That really was fast. Good for them and I have to say Shania looks just stunning in those pics. The gold floor length is breath taking. Naturally pretty inside and out.

  3. Kevin says:

    Bet they were swinging before they made a permanent switch. FREAKY DEAKY!

  4. elisa says:

    if you click on the CDAN link, you’ll see that many commenters rebut the speculation – or at least, the speculation that Mutt and Marie aren’t together b/c there are no pictures, because there are/were very few pics of Mutt anyway. I don’t think Shania cheated first, Mutt would’ve said something, he’s rich enough not to be paid off. I wish Shania all the happiness in the world.

  5. Marjalane says:

    Mutt Lange has always been a freaky hermit with loads of talent and money- there aren’t very many pictures of him and ANYONE. I was a really big fan of Shania, “back in the day” and I remember a lot of gossip about what a manipulative bitch she was- most of it came from her own family- who probably just wanted some of her money, but who knows. I still like her, but I don’t think she has much going for her now musically, since Mutt isn’t pulling the strings.

  6. guesty says:

    well cdan does have a point…

  7. albeli says:

    The whole wife-swap aspect grosses me out, but I hope they’re happy.

    There were barely any pictures of Shania and Mutt, and they were married for awhile. Not having pics of Mutt and whats-her-name is no kind of proof of anything.

  9. chelly says:

    Didn’t they basically swap wives?
    like some weird swinging thing…
    wife swapping much? eww
    well that must be umm…
    awkward turtle.
    at least Shania managed to somewhat upgrade from the hobbit.

  10. lucy2 says:

    This feels like a plot for a bad romantic comedy.
    It seems really fast, but maybe they were engaged for a while before announcing it?
    A weird way to end up together, but hopefully it works out for them.

  11. Nanea says:

    IMO CDAN is the Perez Hilton of Blind Items. That guy is not an entertainment lawyer, at best he’s the paralegal’s assistant.

  12. JenJen says:

    I wish her the best of luck and happiness. I do have to admit when I saw that thing her new man was married to that cheated on him it made we wonder….
    But maybe Mutt and Mutt’slut just feel more comfortable and bonded by their ugliness.

  13. ! says:

    Please, CDAN and its author might have some kind of “in” on the industry, but a lawyer they certainly are not. And whoever writes it has been known to lie or make mistakes (anyone remember that model that was supposed to start guest blogging, until all the commenters pointed out her opening post was pulled from three regularly circulated scare stories from the industry and was in no way an original story?). Referencing them in anything makes you less credible imo. They have the capacity to be flat out wrong just as much as any of us.

  14. Rosanna says:

    Like… isn’t there ANY other man to marry than your ex-husband’s mistress’s ex-husband??? 😉

  15. gg says:

    Shania got a way classier looking guy in the bargain.

  16. Jayna says:

    To be that betrayed by your husband and supposed friend must be so devastating. I’m glad she got the last laugh and found happiness. She’s so pretty.

  17. Confuzzle says:

    *hums ‘I’m my own grandpa’*

  18. DrM says:

    The gold dress stole combo is truly heinous….

  19. Louise says:

    I know it’s an island wedding but I hate white suits. They look odd. I love Shania’s dress. I’m not sure if the wedding was fast. Just because they announced their engagement a few weeks ago doesn’t mean that’s when they were engaged. They could have been engaged for months.

  20. DGO says:

    When Shania returned to Timmins years ago (while still married to Mutt) for a high school reunion, rumour was she slept with her former boyfriend. Don’t know if that’s true, but there were stories around for years that she and Mutt had an open sort of relationship.

  21. chris says:

    LOL. I find this intertwining of relationships amusing.

  22. Dana M says:

    I hear you Kaiser. The whole thing is just so weird.

    Someone took their story public… She was on the Down-low for a while. She could have kept her issue under the radar. But word got out…maybe she leaked her story b/c she was hurt, pissed or wanted good PR?! Who knows really, but they do.

    The same thing happened at work. Two couple’s swapped….due to an affair. They switched and one couple is still married (the ones who had the affair first). The other couple ( the ones left behind) didn’t last long….probably 6 months.

  23. Marjalane says:

    @11 & 13

    I’m glad you brought up the reliability of CDAN- I think he/she has to be someone who has “some” inside information, but overall he goes with stuff that is speculative and then presents it as fact. I enjoy going to CDAN, but I get irritated at a lot of his stuff. I always appreciate that celebitchy always makes it clear that it’s gossip- it’s opinion- it’s fun. BTW- his reveals yesterday were totally lame! It’s obnoxious to “reveal” stuff about dead celebs.

  24. kelly says:

    Erm, naturally pretty? Ever seen the before-surgery pics? You wouldn’t recognize her.

  25. flutters says:

    I didn’t think Kaiser was citing CDAN as a source? Just saying the CDAN writer was wondering about whether there’s more to this story.

    I do agree with the people here that the majority of CDAN’s blinds are nonsense and CDAN’s not a reliable source.

    I understand why tongues might be wagging in this situation. My opinion is there’s nothing more to it because I don’t see why Marie Thiebaud wouldn’t have leaked something unflattering about Shania if there were, even if Mutt Lange chose to be quiet. After all it’s Lange and Marie Thiebaud who’ve absorbed all the negative press. I know that’s not airtight reasoning though.

  26. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    I wish them all the happiness along with Valerie and her new husband

  27. MissyA says:

    I don’t really follow the gossip around Shania because she never really appealed to me, but I seem to remember her getting all holier-than-thou when rumors of her (ex)husband’s affair started to surface.

    Am I remembering it correctly? Was their divorce ugly or amicable?

    Weird either way.
    Hope everybody is happier now after playing musical chairs.

  28. munchies says:

    As I read in other source, they were engaged last October and been together for years.

  29. Isa says:

    I remember it being reported that Shania practiced some religion that didn’t allow sex unless it was for reproductive means and that was an issue in the split.
    I’m betting that wasn’t true.

  30. slymm27 says:

    omg! So many people have lost their minds…..why don’t they just have a foursome?

  31. fanny says:

    Seems to me it was quite a while after the breakup with Mutt that she starting seeing Frederic romantically. I wish them well … but I guess it will never be clear what really happened.

  32. Saywhat says:

    Shania needs Mutt for her career to go forward. Since she married his friend and her best friends husband maybe she should just let Mutt manage her again. You know keep it in the family.
