Shania Twain admits she doesn't 'hate' ex-husband for 'great mistake' of cheating

Shania Twain shared how she feels about her ex-husband's "great mistake" of cheating.

Twain, 58, noted she doesn't "hate" Mutt Lange, whom she divorced in 2008, but explained the affair is "his mistake" to live with.

"Forgiveness is in the family of letting go," the country music star said during an appearance on the "Great Company with Jamie Laing" podcast. "But forgiveness, more specifically for me anyway, is not about forgetting necessarily. 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."

She added: "Do I hate my ex-husband for making a mistake? No. It's his mistake. Not my mistake."
