Frédéric Thiébaud was born on 1st August 1970 into a middle-class Christian family in Switzerland. Talking about his career, Fredric is a business professional of the world’s largest food and beverage company brand, Nestlé headquartered in Vevey, Vaud, Switzerland.

Frédéric does as much as he can to stay away from the media and consciously limits his involvement in the entertainment industry. Regardless, he still makes it to the news as a result of his second marriage to the famous singer, Shania.

Why Did Frederic Thiebaud Divorce Marie Anne Thiebaud?

Marie Anne Thiebaud and Frederic Thiebaud got divorced after the former engaged in an extramarital affair with her best friend Shania Twain’s husband, Robert John “Mutt” Lange, a South African record producer and songwriter. Robert and Marie started a secret romantic relationship which came as a shock to Shania.

The singer first knew about the hurtful news from Marie’s husband Fredric. During that time, Fred had been noticing suspicious moves of his wife Marie. Not only that, he on one occasion discovered questionable phone bills, hotel receipts, and sexy lingerie set in his wife’s box which eventually confirmed his worst nightmare.

Finding out that it was with her friend’s husband that she was having affairs became most devastating to Fred. He promptly confronted his wife Marie Anne and asked her to tell Shania about the whole thing but she did not. After some weeks, Fred by himself opened up to Shania about her husband’s affair with his wife.

Meanwhile, Shania’s husband had already started acting strange to his wife and asking her for a divorce. Shania who was wondering what the issue was did not know that her friend Marie was having affairs with her husband.

The songbird also put a call through to Marie in order to give her a chance to disclose the affair by herself but she never did, rather, she lied to her and was adamant about keeping it a secret. The year that followed reportedly saw the end of Marie’s marriage with Fred as the latter would file for divorce for betrayal.

Frédéric Remarried Shania Twain

After Mutt Lange divorced and Shania Twain got divorced, the songbird said that she got very hurt and pained and suffered diverse health issues. Although she felt that she couldn’t love again, she found moral support, love, and solace in Marie’s ex-husband, Frédéric Thiébaud. Fred gave her courage and renewed her commitment and belief to love.

According to the You’re Still The One singer, the only person she found his comfort suitable was Fredric because he was going through the exact same thing. The two fell in love and eventually tied the knot on New Year’s day 2011 in Rincon, Puerto Rico. They have been living happily and traveling the world together. They do not share any child together yet.

Where is Marie Anne Thiebaud Now?

Since the dramatic events, Marie Anne has totally been keeping away from the media. Needless to say that she promptly lost her job as Shania’s secretary as well as any relationship she had with the singer. She is living a totally private life so it is unclear what she is currently doing or where she is today.

Meanwhile, Robert Mutt Lange solidified his relationship with Marie Anne and the two are believed to be married and living together. While records show that Mutt is co-parenting with Shania to raise their son, nothing is said or known about how Fred and Marie are raising their daughter. Literally, the foursome exchanged their partners.

For all we know, Marie Anne has since been labeled a husband snatcher and a betrayer but none of these claims seemed to get her perturbed or prevent her from pursuing a romance with Mutt.
