Shania Twain doesn’t hate ex-husband Robert Lange for his 'mistake' of cheating on her: 'So sad for him'

"Do I hate my ex-husband for making a mistake? No. It’s his mistake. Not my mistake."

Shania Twain isn’t losing any sleep over her ex-husband’s mistakes.

During Tuesday’s episode of the Great Company with Jamie Laing podcast, the Canadian singer, 58, opened up about her capacity for forgiveness — even when it comes to producer Robert "Mutt" Lange, whom she divorced in 2010 after his affair with her close friend, Marie-Anne Thiébaud.

“It’s very hard to hate or not be able to forgive somebody that you believe is a human being that deserves empathy and understanding. And I think we all do,” Twain told the host. “Do I hate my ex-husband for making a mistake? No. It’s his mistake. Not my mistake.”

She added, “So sad for him that he made such a great mistake that he has to live with. And I don’t know what that is, but it’s not... That’s not my weight.”

The Grammy-winning singer married Lange, who was also her producer, in 1993. They were together for 15 years before calling it quits in the wake of his affair. The couple announced their breakup in 2008, and finalized the divorce in 2010. After forging a friendship and relationship with Marie-Anne's then-husband Frédéric Thiébaud, Twain would tie the knot with him in 2011. They remain happily together.

“Forgiveness is in the family of letting go. But forgiveness — for me, anyway — is not about forgetting, necessarily,” Twain continued. “It’s about understanding the other person, and that might mean that they’re wrong. Maybe you believe forever that whatever they did was wrong.”

Twain, who has previously opened up about the abuse she endured at the hand of her stepfather, Jerry, added, "My father's a better example because this is someone that I totally forgive. I understand that he wasn’t well, that you don’t act certain ways unless there’s something wrong with you. Unless there’s something wrong with your stability.”

Last year, the "You're Still The One" singer expressed a similar sentiment about forgiveness during a conversation on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast.

“I think everyone gets what they deserve,” she said of the husband swap. “I got what I deserve, I got the greatest man on the planet. That’s how I see it.”

She explained that while she "didn’t really know Fred very well" before her ex’s affair, they were able to commiserate over the demise of their respective marriages, and she admired “how gracefully and graciously he was dealing with navigating the same pain.”

As for where she stands with Lange today, she admitted that while they still don’t talk, they’ve found a way to comfortably coparent their son, Eja D’Angelo, 22.

"Mutt and I parent well together — for people who don't talk to each other," she said. "We'll just text. We both love our son so much, so we don't play any games like that. We have the same priority, we share spaces for him. No nonsense there."
