It was pretty obvious at the beginning of last winter that there was something brewing in Celine Dion’s personal life. She stepped out on numerous occasions looking seriously depressed and her husband, Rene Angelil was nowhere to be found. That threw up a huge red flag because the couple is pretty inseparable so of course it led to divorce rumors. We now know that the real reason for the stress was not relationship trouble but Rene’s second cancer battle.
According to the March 17th print edition of National Enquirer Rene was diagnosed with throat cancer and underwent surgery a few days before Christmas to remove a squamous cell carcinoma from the right side of his neck. This latest health scare left Celine heart broken and terrified for her 72-year old husband. He is obviously getting older and Celine knew that it was vital for him to focus only on recovery while she juggled everything else.
She has spent the last few months focusing on the couple’s three children as well as all of the business dealings while Rene channels his energy towards getting better. According to a source close to the couple something good has come out of this latest scare. The family has really focused on spending quality time together and they are now closer than ever. Before they were a bit scattered with work and school and various other obligations. Now being together is most important and Celine is grateful that at least something good has come out of the drama.
Do you think that Rene will bounce back from this bout of cancer or do you think that things could be a little rougher than the family is letting on? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
