(Newser) – Country crooner Shania Twain and her husband of 14 years are separating, her rep tells People. The 42-year-old singer married music producer Robert “Mutt” Lange, 59, six months after they met. In 2002, she told the magazine, “Our love has always been based on friendship and compatibility,” but “we are very different.” The pair has one son, 6-year-old Eja D’Angelo.
