The biggest entertainers in history often have some of the most bizarre personal lives too. Look no further than Michael Jackson, Bill Cosby, and Keith Richards. But don’t forget about Shania Twain. Yup. The best-selling female country performer ever has a hell of a story about tying the not.

The Rise of Shania Twain

Unlike some other artists, Twain didn’t get a handout early in her career. According to Shania Twain: The Biography, written by Robin Eggar and released in 2001, she actually worked menial jobs to make ends meet early in her career.

Born in Ontario, Canada, in August 1965, Twain embarked on her music career in 1983. She honed her voice, songwriting, and guitar-playing abilities at a very early age (some say when she was 3 years old).

Crafting her skills at an early age was a smart idea, as Twain’s talents won her a contract with Mercury Nashville Records in 1990, according to her website. At that point, she formally became a professional musician.

Shania Twain’s Love Life

What seems like a fairly conventional career path, albeit a very lucky one, pales in comparison to Twain’s complicated personal life.

In 1993, Shania Twain met and married Robert John “Mutt” Lange, a South African record producer and songwriter. He later had an affair with Marie-Anne Thiebaud, Twain’s best friend and secretary.

Naturally, the couple separated and later divorced. But here’s where it gets interesting: After Lange and Thiebaud moved to Switzerland, Twain married Marie-Anne’s ex-husband, Frederic Thiebaud.

Twain married the Swiss Nestle executive on January 1, 2011, in Puerto Rico.

More Shania on the Way

Needless to say, Shania Twain has led quite a life. And it ain’t over year.

This year, the 57-year-old is set to guest-star on the new country-music drama Monarch. She will also join Martin Short for a TV special of “Beauty and the Beast.”

And, of course, Shania Twain is working on a new album to boot.
