Celine Dion’s husband and former manager Rene Angelil has died at the age of 73, the singer has announced.

Rene Angelil, who Celine Dion married in 1994 and with whom she has three children, died at home in Las Vegas from throat cancer.

Celine Dion took two career breaks to look after Rene Angelil after he was diagnosed with throat cancer, first in 2000.

Rene Angelil was born in Montreal in 1942. After managing groups in Canada, he was approached to manage Celine Dion by her parents when she was aged 12.

In August 2015, Celine Dion told USA Today she was preparing for her husband’s death.Rene Angelil dead at 73

“When it hits me, it’s going to hit me,” the singer said.

“But my biggest job is to tell my husband, we’re fine. I’ll take care of our kids. You’ll watch us from another spot.”

According to the Montreal Gazette, Rene Angelil mortgaged his house to finance Celine Dion’s first album.

Celine Dion has recorded 25 studio albums, and is the fifth-best-paid recording artist in the world, with a value of some $630 million.

In 1999, her song My Heart Will Go On, from the soundtrack of the Titanic movie, won two Grammy awards.

She has been a regular performer at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas since 2003.

Celine Dion returned to performing in 2015 after a year-long hiatus to look after Rene Angelil.

Rene Angelil stepped down as Celine Dion’s manager in 2014.


An audacious thief has been arrested after allegedly breaking into Celine Dion’s house, raiding the family’s fridge and taking a bath.

The 36 year-old burglar even found time to scoff some pasta at the Celine’s Dion luxury residence near Montreal.

Fortunately, Celin Dion and her husband Rene Angelil were not put in danger as they were not at the property at the moment.

The criminal was caught by police on Tuesday afternoon in Canadian city Laval after the alarm system of Celine Dion’s house went off.

According to local police spokesman Franco Di Genova, the suspect was getting ready to run a nice hot bath when police arrived with a canine unit.

Franco Di Genova said:

“He opened the water taps, was pouring a nice warmish bath (and) he even managed to eat some pastry that was in the fridge.

“The suspect was coming down the big staircase and was asking: <<Hey, guys what are you doing here?>>

“So the officers replied: <<What are you doing here?>> and they proceeded to put him under arrest.”

It was reported that the criminal jumped over a fence to access the Celine Dion’s property after pinching a garage door opener he found in an unlocked vehicle.

The burglar, named Daniel Bedard, 36, who is a Laval resident, was arraigned on charges including breaking and entering, car theft and causing property damage.

Police spokesman Franco Di Genova added that there was another incident at Celine Dion‘s mansion in 2009 when another man jumped the fence, but was stopped by the security firm that was keeping an eye on the property before he could enter the home.

Celine Dion, 43, and Rene Angelil usually live in Florida but use the Laval home when they return to Quebec, where the famous singer was born and raised.

Celine Dion has a 10 year-old son and 10 month old fraternal twins with Rene Angelil, who is 26 years her senior.
