Emotional: Celine Dion Opens Up About Life After Husband’s Death

Published: Wednesday 18th May 2016 by Sam

With just days to go before Celine Dion is honored with the Icon Award at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards, the superstar singer sat down with Nightline to discuss the piercing loss of her husband.

Rene Angelil, who also served as her career-long manager, died five months ago following a hard-fought battle with throat cancer.

Hailed as a titan of talent, Dion has had to serve as a tower of strength for the couple’s three children – all the while coming to terms with his death herself.

In a revealing interview, the ‘My Heart Will Go On’ belter tells all.


The heart-wrenching sit-down awaits below…

    I’m sorry but he was a predator. He was in his 40s when she was in her teens which is why they had her looking like a middle aged woman when she was in her 20s

      Airhead. Last time I checked, people in their 20s were legal, so why would she need to look like a middle aged woman at that point? Some 20-something have no need or desire to look and act like they’re still kids. Idiots on the internet. Shut up, turd.

        She was a child when he met her. That’s not problematic to you? Isn’t that an abuse of trust? I think you’ll find that it is. You wouldn’t want one of your children’s mentors starting a romantic relationship them when they become teens because you’d always wonder when the attraction started.

        And she was an adult when they started dating. They went on to get married and remained so for over 20 years, separated by his death. Point? I don’t care when they met. There’s no proof that anything untoward was happening between them when she was still a child. If he was a predator, there would be more stories of him and others, but there aren’t.

    You can see the pain in her face but she had the chance to process the fact that he was going to die. I lost the love of my life too but I wasn’t ready, those are the deaths that hurt the most because you’re not expecting it. God bless her and her children, she’s such a beautiful person.

  8. Stephon Jackson May 18, 2016

    Aww Celine is so sweet. And stop calling her damn late husband a f****** predator. That man loved Dion. He wasn’t no p******** that was just looking for a quick f***. They’re marriage was like a true fairy-tail. RIP Renee

    Stay strong Celine!
    You’re way better than Mariah.

  10. JOHNVIDAL May 18, 2016

    She is such a beautiful person. And so open-minded and real.

    People have to open their eyes when it comes to cancer though. Meat full of hormones, milk, dairy and eggs are killing us the way tehy are produced. Us and the planet. People need to get educated. of course establichment and companies don´t want that. They are having their profits from people´s ignorance.

    At least Celine and Rene had a real relationship that endured. Mariah’s ho-ass was sucking Tommy’s already married d*** for career opportunity and after she broke up his marriage schemed to become his wife just to keep her status at the company.

  12. Just being honest May 18, 2016

    I feel her pain. There’s nothing worse than losing someone that you love.

  13. Royalkev May 18, 2016

    This is heartbreaking. My heart goes out to Celine! God bless her! R.I.P Rene!

  14. Reddish tran ivy blokz Need UK timely May 19, 2016

    She should write a special song for her late husband

  15. Thando May 19, 2016

    The only vocalist to be very honest about using play-back records/ lip synching once in a while.

    May she celebrate her husband’s memory through their children.

    Its still my view that she’s a FAR better sing than MC and anyone who disagrees can lynch themselves.

  16. DTG May 19, 2016

    Celine = Class.
    Mariah = Trash.

  17. What Now May 19, 2016

    may God bless her.
