A Sad Goodbye to Celine Dion’s Husband

Sadly, it has just been reported that Céline Dion’s husband René Angélil has died after a long battle with throat cancer. The 73-year old husband and father, passed away in his Las Vegas home on Thursday, January 14, 2016.

“René Angélil, 73, passed away this morning at his home in Las Vegas after a long and courageous battle against cancer,” the singer’s camp posted on her website. “The family requests that their privacy be respected at the moment; more details will be provided at a later time.”

Céline and René met when she was 12 and she describes him as ‘the only boyfriend I’ve ever had’, the singer says in an interview just this past fall. The couple, who are 26 years apart in age, have been happily married since 1994 and are parents to three sons – 14-year-old Rene-Charles and four-year-old twins Eddy and Nelson. He is also survived by his three adult children from a previous relationship, Anne-Marie, Patrick and Jean-Pierre.

It has been a very somber week in Hollywood and our hearts are breaking after these numerous tragedies. We are very sorry for your loss Céline and we love you!!!
