Shania Twain, whose 1997 album Come on Over remains the best-selling country music title of all time, recently addressed her fans through her website: “As I am sure you have seen or heard; I am going through a rough time personally in my life. I wanted you all to know that I could not be getting through this without you. Your letters, emails and words of encouragement give me strength. Your overwhelming support reminds me to smile, no matter how deep the pain and to always be grateful for all the beautiful blessings in my life.”
Twain’s is talking about her recent split from husband/co-writer/producer Robert “Mutt” Lange. The break-up is the subject of rumors that Lange has been having an affair with Twain’s personal assistant Marie-Anne Thiebaud (both Lange and Thiebaud deny it). We’re sorry for the heartbreak, but you’ve got to admit, this is almost the perfect story for country music song. If Twain’s next album is called She Stopped Taking My Calls And Started Taking His, we’ll know that the allegations were true.
