Céline Dion’s Husband René Angélil Has Died. Celine Dion is mourning the loss of her husband, Rene Angelil who is dead Januray 14 after losing his battle with cancer at home in Las Vegas. He was about to celebrate his 74th birthday two days later.
Angelil’s rep confirmed the news to People saying: “Rene Angelil, 73, passed away this morning at his home in Las Vegas after a long and courageous battle against cancer. The family requests that their privacy be respected at the moment.”
Rene Angelil leaves behind his six children. He shared three children with Celine Dion, René-Charles, 14, and their 5-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy. He also had three children prior to his relationship with Celine: Anne-Marie, Patrick and Jean-Pierre.
TMZ is reporting on this story sharing that though Rene Angelil has been battling cancer for a long time, his death was shocking due to the fact that he seemed to had a turn for the better and was even planning business meetings with Celine this week.
As you may recall, Rene was Celine’s manager. They are also reporting that Celine will naturally be canceling her upcoming shows and will hopefully be back to the stage at Caesars Palace in Vegas in about a months time. Even then, it will be a painful, emotional road back to the stage after losing the love of your life.
Even when you are preparing for the death of a loved one because of a lengthy battle, it’s never easy. The pain Celine and all of the children are going through is heart wrenching. Our thoughts are with the family during this difficult time.
On another note, they say that death comes in threes. First we lost the great David Bowie, then Alan Rickman, and now Rene Angelil is dead. Can I just say how very much a I hate cancer? It took the lives of all these great men.
Do you think that we will see a cure for cancer in our lifetime? Could it be possible? For all those out there searching for the cure, please don’t ever stop. Don’t ever give up hope. There has to be an answer somewhere out there.
