Shania Twain has sent a message to her fans for the first time since her split from husband Robert 'Mutti' Lange was made public last month.
The couple were married for 14 years and have a six-year-old son.
“As I am sure you have seen or heard; I am going through a rough time personally in my life,” the singer writes on her website.
“I wanted you all to know that I could not be getting through this without you. Your letters, emails and words of encouragement give me strength. Your overwhelming support reminds me to smile, no matter how deep the pain and to always be grateful for all the beautiful blessings in my life.”
“I have so much to say but I know the best way for me to speak is through my music,” she said. “This is my therapy, my passion, and my love.”
