The 52-year-old singer and songwriter, Shania Twain, recently talked about her struggle with losing her voice. She thought her singing career was over.


In an exclusive interview with The Mirror, she said that at first, she welcomed the break from the music industry. She used the time to raise her son, now 16-year-old Eja.

Unfortunately, her voice continued to deteriorate, and it got to the point where she couldn't even call after her dog anymore. Her doctors thought the cause was psychological.

It eventually came to light that it was nerve damage from Lyme disease and Twain is grateful that her medical team could treat it speedily, "because the disease can go to your brain or heart," she explained.

"I did a lot of mothering, and I enjoyed those crucial years with my son. There were a lot of blessings, not being distracted by work."

Seven years after being treated for Lyme disease, Twain decided to make a return to the stage. She has since recovered, and also filed for a divorce from her first husband, Robert Lange.


Lange had an affair with Twain's best friend and left her after 17 years of marriage. In a twist of fate, Twain married her former best friend's husband, Frédéric Thiébaud.

The pair exchanged vows in Puerto Rico one year after her divorce was finalized, and they celebrated their seventh wedding anniversary in January.

Her latest album, Now, was released back in August, and fans will be familiar with the first single, Swingin' With My Eyes Closed.

She was also cast as Becca in the upcoming action film, Trading Paint, alongside John Travolta and Michael Madsen. It is currently in post-production and will be released later this year.
