Shania Twain’s Personal Life
Shania Twain had a difficult childhood and early adulthood to say the least. At the age of 8 she was already performing in clubs to add to her mother and stepfather’s somewhat irregular income. At 21 she moved to Toronto and continued to perform. Not long after, both of her parents died tragically in a car accident. At just 22 years old Twain returned home to look after her younger siblings and has since said of the experience that "[n]obody could really help me through that grief." However, she didn’t let that dim her spirit and while juggling a job performing at a Canadian resort, and bringing up her sister and two brothers, she continued to pursue music, finally signing her first recording contract in 1992.
Shania Twain’s love life has been just as much of a rollercoaster. She met her first husband, music producer Robert John “Mutt” Lange in 1993 and six months later they were married. The couple stayed together until 2008, when their union broke down after Lane had an affair with Twain’s best friend.
Twain later married Swiss Nestle exec Frederic Thiebaud and they have been together ever since.
Netflix released a documentary dedicated to the country-pop star in July 2022. Not Just a Girl explores the country singer's extensive career, from aspiring bar singer to global celebrity. It uses a combination of archive video and rare interviews with Twain herself and some of her friends, including singers Lionel Ritchie and Avril Lavigne. A must-see documentary!
Trivia: Shania Twain’s current husband, Frederic Thiebaud, is the ex-husband of her former best friend – the one who had an affair with Twain’s first husband!
With such a stellar career that continues to flourish it’s not difficult to see why Shania Twain is worth $400 million and why her fortune continues to grow.
