Shania Twain Gets Married on New Year's Day in Puerto Rico!
Shania Twain and Swiss businessman Frederic Thiebaud were married on New Year's Day in Rincon, Puerto Rico, a community on the western coast of the Caribbean island. Twain's manager, Jason Owen, announced the marriage to People magazine on Saturday (Jan. 1). The ceremony took place at sunset "in front of 40 of their closest family and friends," he said. Twain, 45, confirmed her engagement to Thibaud, 40, on Dec. 20. She was married for 14 years to record producer Robert "Mutt" Lange. Thiebaud's ex-wife, Marie-Anne Thiebaud, managed Twain and Lange's chateau in Switzerland. Twain's marriage ended after Lange allegedly had an affair with Marie-Anne Thiebaud. Twain and Frederic Thiebaud, an executive with Nestle, the Swiss-based food and beverage company, became romantically involved in 2009 after the breakup of their marriages.
