Celine Dion's Husband Rene Angelil Dies at 73

René Angélil, musician and husband of worldwide singing sensation Celine Dion, died on Thursday, January 14, after battling throat cancer, his rep confirms to Us Weekly. He was 73.

"René Angélil, 73, passed away this morning at his home in Las Vegas after a long and courageous battle against cancer," the statement to Us read. "The family requests that their privacy be respected at the moment; more details will be provided at a later time."



Angélil was born and raised in Montreal and embarked there on a music career in the 1960s. Eventually, he went into the artist management side of the business and became Dion's manager. The French-Canadian couple married in 1994, a few years before Dion cemented her legendary status with her biggest, most iconic song, "My Heart Will Go On,” which was featured in James Cameron's Oscar-winning flick, Titanic.

miss ella said...

Chaii she's gonna miss him for real
But human beings can lie to bring others down shaa,if the man is 74 and they where married for 22yrs that means he's isn't as old as they claimed he where when he married her,he was just 52yrs as at the time and the age gap isn't much joor'stella happy new year nneoma

Ooh noo!
The moment she dreaded the most finally stares her in the face.
He was the center of her life.
Most of her songs were dedicated to him.
Chei my heart bleeds for Celine because I know this will be one pill too bitter for her to swallow.
Take heart Celine bearing in mind that we all will die someday.
RIP gentle René.

Reine rest in peace. Your wife really loved you and showed it that Age is just a number. She never looked at any man's face except yours. She put her career on hold just to make sure you are always by the family.

May God comfort you Celine, your children and all those your husband has touched. Painful.

The GOD I worship answers my prayers. I don't know about other gods. If you don't like my GOD, please leave him alone. But remember that he created you out of his own image and likeness and it is by his grace you're still alive. His love and mercy encompasses you all the time. If only you'll open your eyes...

Lauryn said...

Dear Anonymous,

I would love to know what happened to you... why are you the way you are??? I'm sure something happened in your life that made you question the existence of God...it's okay, I totally understand. I've been there at certain times in my life but best believe me God came through for me big time, please don't give up hope. Know that you're loved by God.
I pray for God's immeasurable blessings on you just so you know he's Omnipotent.
Stay blessed.
Hugs.
