Celine Dion's Husband Rene Angelil Dead at Age 73

Sad news – Celine Dion‘s husband of 21 years, Rene Angelil, has died.

The 47-year-old Canadian singer’s longtime love and former manager was 73 years old and battled cancer for a long time.

Rene Angelil, 73, passed away this morning as his home in Las Vegas after a long and courageous battle against cancer,” his rep told People. “The family requests that their privacy be respected at the moment; more details will be provided at a later time.”

Celine and Rene first met when she was 14 years old and they later married in 1994. The couple shares a son, Rene-Charles, 14, and five-year-old twins, Nelson and Eddy. He is also survived by children from previous marriages, Anne-Marie, Patrick, and Jean-Pierre.

Our thoughts are with Celine and the rest of Renee‘s family and friends during this difficult time.

    He started to manage her when she was a very young teen she has been with him for a better part of her life in one way or another. This will be very devastating for her and the children, but it seems he had a very long battle with the cancer and maybe he is finally at peace. My condolences to Celine, their kids and family.
