One of Lange’s top clients was his wife, country music superstar Shania Twain. The pair met and began their dating and working relationships in the 1990s, marrying in 1993. Their son Eja was born in 2001.
That marriage broke down after a highly publicized affair Lange had with Twain’s best friend, Marie-Anne Thiébaud. The divorce finalized in 2010, with Lange continuing to see Marie-Anne. Eventually, Twain married Frederic Thiébaud, her friend's ex-husband.
