The news of the breakup was announced Wednesday, May 15. In a statement, Mutt called the split “an unfortunate thing,” adding that the couple had grown apart. But several sources have said that he was having a relationship with another woman, Marie Ann Thiebaud, a longtime secretary who managed the couple’s castle residence in Switzerland. One source has said that, “Mutt and Marie Ann left their spouses for each other and are still in a relationship.” Mutt denies the claims, telling People that, “It’s absolutely not the reason [for the separation].” He also denied that he was in a romantic relationship with Thiebaud. Shania and Mutt were married Dec. 28, 1993, and have a six-year-old son, Eja.
