Normally one of the most private stars around, Shania Twain caused a bit of commotion yesterday at JFK Airport when she hopped off a plane from Switzerland with a hunky companion. The twist? Her new tall, dark and handsome is apparently the husband of the woman who split her marriage apart. Follow that?
Back in May, the country mega-star separated from her husband of 14 years, Robert “Mutt” Lange, who described their falling out as “just a growing apart, that’s all.” But word later leaked that the private pair apparently called it quits over Mutt’s wandering eye, which allegedly landed on none other than the couple’s trusted secretary and manager of their Swiss mansion, Marie-Anne Thiébaud, who later denied the affair.
Her husband, businessman Frederic Thiébaud, has been identified as Shania’s traveling companion. Graeme Massie of Splash News was at JFK when the pair emerged together off a flight from Geneva. “They were walking side by side,” he told Scandalist. “But as soon as they saw photographers they looked at each other and laughed, and he dropped back.”
He also revealed that Shania and Frederic “stood apart” while waiting for their limo, then “looked relaxed” once inside the ride. Could it be because Shania’s finally gettin’ some love from a pure-breed stud and not a Mutt?
