Shania Twain has revealed the relationship state of a couple.
The country music star was deep into a conversation with host Dax Shepard on Monday’s episode of the “Armchair Expert” podcast when he eventually posed a question that many of Twain’s fans are sure to be curious about.
After about an hour and ten minutes, a “nervous” Shepard asked whether Shania Twain’s ex-husband, music producer Robert “Mutt” Lange, was still with Marie-Anne Thiebaud.
The “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” singer was embroiled in a scandal in 2008 when Lange left her after 14 years of marriage for Thiebaud, Twain’s closest friend at the time.
Shania Twain responded to Shepard by saying she was no longer humiliated by the betrayal and that Lange was still with Thiebaud.
The performer stated that, while she speaks with her ex about their 21-year-old son, she “never has” talked to the couple about anything else.
“For people who don’t talk to each other, Mutt and I parent well together,” the Grammy winner explained. “We’ll just text each other.” We both adore our kid, so we don’t engage in such games.”
“We have the same priority — we share spaces for him,” she added. There’s no foolishness there.”
Shania Twain also admitted on “Armchair Expert” that she used to struggle with adultery.
“I was uncontrollably fragile over it, which I had never felt before, ever, because I thought for once I was stable,” said Twain, who spoke at length about her difficult childhood earlier in the episode. “I really believed that, I’m safe.”
Despite the controversy, Shania Twain found a huge silver lining. She married Thiebaud’s ex-husband, Fred Thiebaud, in 2011, and they are still together today.

Twain stated that she “didn’t know Fred very well” prior to Lange’s affair, but she fell for him after witnessing “how gracefully and graciously he was dealing with the same pain.”
“Fred is extremely intelligent. “This is one of the brightest people I know, and he wasn’t aware of the affair either,” Twain said. “It made me feel better.”
She went on to say that “everyone gets what they deserve.”
“I got what I deserved,” said Twain. “I’ve got the best man on the planet.”
Marie-Anne Thiebaud, on the other hand, has never been shy about expressing her disdain for her erstwhile bestie.
When asked if she had any comments for her ex-BFF in 2015, Twain replied, “I wish I’d never met you.”
“That would be it,” she continued. I believe there are some people in existence about whom you would say, ‘I would have been better off never knowing that person.'”
Later in the interview, she changed her mind, informing Cohen that the experience had also helped her grow.
“I can’t say I’d be better off because I believe I learned a lot from it all.” “I have no regrets,” she stated.
