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.

    1. If only the god you all worship will do so in his infinite power, isn't he omnipotent??

      Delete
    2. 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...

    3. 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.

  38. 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.
