Shania Twain’s marriage history – from affair to partner swap

Are there any Netflix documentaries that don't impress you much? Well fear not – Shania Twain 's Not Just a Girl has dropped today, on July 26.

The doc features behind the scenes footage, on-stage performances and interviews with Shania Twain herself and those around her during her rise to fame.

It will also delve into her battle with Lyme disease, which the singer feared would lead to losing her vocal talent forever.

The deep dive also gives viewers an insight into the loss of her parents, a glance at past partners and the heights of her success.

We take a look at her relationship history and how much Shania Twain is actually worth.

Shania Twain's first husband

The Canadian country-singer met her first husband Robert 'Mutt' Lange, after he listened to her hit debut album, in June 1993.

Lange was a Zambian born, South African songwriter and music producer who had worked with many famous rock bands, including Def Leopard, AC/DC.

He then offered to collaborate with Shania on her future music.

But their working relationship quickly became romantic and just like that, they married on December 28 of that year.

In August 2001, their baby boy Eja was born.

Robert John 'Mutt' Lange's best friend affair

Shania Twain and Robert Lange were incredibly close with best friends, Marie-Anne and Frédéric Thiébaud.

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, years later, Shania Twain said: "Fred and Mutt were good friends, and Marie-Anne and I were good friends."

But in 2008, Lange asked Twain for a divorce, seemingly out of the blue.

Later that year, Frédéric discovered his wife and Shania's husband were engaged in a secret affair.

The country singer later revealed an email she had sent to her best friend, pleading to undo what had been done, saying: "If you could see me crying and suffering, maybe you would have pity. Find love somewhere else from someone else that isn't hurting two families so much.”

Shania Twain's current husband – the marriage swap?

Shania and Frédéric took to each other to seek comfort from the affair, but that comfort soon turned into it's own love-story.

In a twisted turn of events, both couples had now swapped partners.

The marriage between the new couple marked a clean slate, symbolised by their wedding date – on New Year's Day in 2011.

Twain and Frédéric now live in Switzerland, where they first met.

How much is Shania Twain's net worth?

Despite her crazy love life, Twain's fame comes from her talent.

The singer has sold more than 85 million albums and is the top-selling female artist in country-music history.

Her success over many years has lead her to a net worth of $400million (£330m).

The Netflix documentary covering her highs, lows and super-stardom dropped on Tuesday July 26.
