SAD NEWS for Celine Dion and her family.

Celine Dion’s husband René Angélil has died “after a long and courageous battle against cancer,” his rep confirmed exclusively to WHO.

“Rene Angelil, 73, passed away this morning at his home in Las Vegas after a long and courageous battle against cancer,” the rep said in a statement.

“The family requests that their privacy be respected at the moment; more details will be provided at a later time.”

Celine was only 19 when they went on their first official date in 1987. They got engaged in 1991 and married in 1994 at Montreal’s Notre-Dame Basilica. In 2001 they celebrated the birth of their first child.

The couple had three children together – René-Charles, 14, and 5-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy – and his adult children from a previous relationship, Anne-Marie, Patrick and Jean-Pierre.

Our thoughts are with Celine Dion and their children at this sad time.

  • oh how very sad, they were such a beautiful couple


  • so sad for the family to loose him.


  • Sympathy to Celine and their children.
    I really hope the Media respects their privacy. They shouldn’t have to hide, they should be able to grieve in private for as long as it takes. As long as their relatives and friends continue to support them for awhile, not just a few weeks and then forget them and not make contact. Sometimes a grieving person just needs someone to talk to and them be good listeners.


  • They were such a lovely couple. He took so good care of her. It was amazing watching him always behind her, telling her that he loves her.
    Deepest condolences to the lovely Celine! Also for the recent loss of her brother.
