Just two days ago, her husband, 73-year-old Rene Angelil, with whom she had been married for 21 years, died with a famous singer Celine Dion. And yesterday it became known that Celine’s 59-year-old brother Daniel Dion had passed away.
The singer's husband died of throat cancer, not having lived a couple of days before his 74th birthday and only a month after the 21st wedding anniversary. 47-year-old Celine Dion canceled the planned concerts.
Rene Angelil was Celine's manager before the start of their relationship. They met when the singer was only 12 years old, and he was already 38. They started meeting after 7 years. Celine bore him three sons: the eldest one will turn 15 the other day, and the younger twins are only 5 years old. Rene’s funeral will be held in the same cathedral where the couple married in 1994.
Brother Celine had cancer of the throat, brain, and tongue. The family learned that he had only a few hours left, just a day before his death. Daniel died in a hospital surrounded by his family, including his 88-year-old mother.
