True to form, Shania’s Toronto-based publicist was as shocked as can be to hear the news. “It’s news to me,” he said when contacted. Perhaps he’ll break the news to Shania, who lives in Switzerland and is, by the way, the best-selling female artist of all time, according to the Sun article. So there, Diana, Barbra, and Cher.
Darryl Twain is the youngest of two half-brothers to Shania, who was born Eileen Regina Edwards in Windsor, Ont., on Aug. 28, 1965. Shania and two sisters were adopted by Jerry Twain, whom mom Sharon had married after parting with her first husband. The couple added two sons to the family: Mark and Darryl. When Jerry and Sharon were killed in a 1987 car crash, Shania took charge of the family. Darryl Twain was 13 years old at the time.
