Shania’s Split Not My Fault, Says Secretary

News of Shania Twain’s split from her husband of 14 years (seems to be the magic number these days…) has come amid rumors of her husband Mutt Lange’s infidelity. The “other woman” in the equation is allegedly Marie-Anne Thiébaud, who worked for many years for the couple as their secretary and managing their Swiss chateau.

However, Thiébaud has spoken with E! News in an effort to clear up rumors about a romance between Mutt and herself. Over the phone, she told the news outlet, “I know what you’re ringing to ask me about. But when marriages break up, they break up for all sorts of complicated reasons—it’s never just one reason. And those reasons should be kept private.”

The now retired 37-year-old former secretary added, “If you’re looking for a person that broke up a marriage then you have the wrong person. I’m not that person.”

Hmm, well, that denial was rather vague.

In any case, she’s not definitively stating that Lange’s boots have never been under her bed.
