To the outside world, country superstar Shania Twain may seem perfect, but on the inside she's had to work hard on healing many wounds.

Twain had a rough childhood growing up in Timmins, a town located in the Canadian province of Ontario. Born Eilleen Regina, Shania's parents divorced when she was just two years old so she was raised by her mother, Sharon, and a man named Jerry Twain, who later adopted her.

Unfortunately for the country pop singer, the road to success was paved with hardships and repeated abuse, which she and her mother suffered at the hands of Jerry.

Twain has often touched on the subject of her experience with domestic abuse, and even wrote about it in her 2001 memoir From This Moment On. The singer went on a 15-year hiatus shortly after the book was released, but she's back and is once again opening up about her story and pain in a new interview with 60 minutes.
