Canadian country superstar Shania Twain has opened up about her split from her husband Robert (Mutt) Lange.

"As I am sure you have seen or heard; I am going through a rough time personally in my life," she wrote on her official website, thanking fans for their support in the wake of the breakup of her 14-year marriage to the famed music producer.

"I have so much to say but I know the best way for me to speak is through my music. ... I need some time to heal this broken heart but make no mistake; I will be back and hopefully stronger than ever."

Twain, 42, and Lange, 59, announced their split on May 15.

They have a son, Eja D'Angelo, 6.

People.com reported that Lange's relationship with Twain's close friend and secretary, Marie-Anne Thiebaud, was the reason for the split -- which Thiebaud vehemently denies.
