Celine Dion Discusses the Night Husband Rene Angelil Died

Celine Dion is opening up about the night that her beloved husband Rene Angelil died and how he was found after he passed away.

The 48-year-old singer revealed that Rene died in his sleep after falling out of his bed in the middle of the night. While Celine was performing her Vegas show, Rene had tried to get out of bed, but fell.

Rene wanted to die in my arms,” Celine told Paris Match magazine. “He must have wanted to get up and he fell on the floor.”

“Normally, after my show when he had taken his last medications, I gave him a kiss, tucked him in and sent him off to sleep. That evening I didn’t want to wake him. It was the nurse who found him the next day. Distraught, she came to find me,” she added.

Celine also told People that when she returned home from her show, she didn’t want to wake Rene, who was back in bed following the fall. She also confirmed that a doctor told her “that there was no fracture or injury or hematoma” from the fall.

“I didn’t want to wake him,” she said. “I should have gone and said, ‘I love you and I’m here,’ but I don’t want to live with that regret. I meant well by not waking him.”

“I got on my knees and I kissed him,” Celine explained about what she did after Rene was found dead. “It was the coldest thing I’ve ever experienced in my life, but it was amazing. I said, ‘Promise me not to worry. I’m fine, the kids are great, we’re gonna be okay. It’s enough suffering. Just go in peace.’”

Celine Dion Talks About Rene-Charles' Billboard Surprise

Celine Dion is opening up about being moved to tears by her 15-year-old son Rene-Charles Angelil‘s surprise appearance at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards.

The 48-year-old singer was presented with the Icon Award by her son and she broke down and apologized for her tears on stage.

“To try to perform that song without collapsing was big enough and then I turned around and I saw my son. As a mother, I really, through this whole process of our new life, wanted to be strong,” Celine told Entertainment Tonight. “I thought I was going to make it through the whole night without tears and show strength, and love won,” she said. “I just collapsed. I’m very thankful for the award and proud of my family so much.”

“You have to be strong, but I think it’s important as well to not hold everything,” Celine added. “I tried to hold it in front of my 5-year-old twins, but my 15-and-a-half year old beautiful son is old enough to understand. Even though I did not want to cry, he understands it’s okay because it is therapeutic and you can’t take so much pressure. You can take so much strength and weight on your shoulders, but sometimes you can’t control everything.”

“I’m not the first woman and I’m not the last one who will lose her husband,” she continued. “It’s hard, but my family is helping me through it. I hope I think people know that I don’t do music, I don’t do my passion and sing to win an award. It’s never been the number one goal. It’s to share moments with fans and the celebration of music itself.”

Celine Dion Recalls Her Final Moments with Rene-Angelil Before His Death

Celine Dion has given her first television interview since the tragic death of her husband Rene Angelil.

During the interview, the 48-year-old superstar entertainer described her final moments spent with her husband just before he passed away.

“You were worrying for my career. You were worrying for the children. You were worrying for everything. It’s enough. Do you trust me? Please do. Trust me,” Celine recalled saying to Rene Angelil on his deathbed. “The kids are fine. I’m fine. I promise you we’re gonna be okay. Please leave in peace. I don’t want you to worry.”

Celine also recalled how she told their children, five-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy, and 15-year-old Rene-Charles, about their father’s death.

“Before I told them that their dad was not there, I talked about when we, everybody, gets sick. Then I said, ‘Do you remember the movie ‘Up,’” Celine said. “It’s one of our favorites…’Oh,’ they said, ‘Yes, Ellie went up. You know, she, with the balloons.’ And I said, ‘Well, yeah … You know, today Papa went up.’”

“The only thing I wanted is for them to say up,” Celine continued. “Up is a good thing. Up is uplifting. Papa was very sick. He didn’t have a sore throat. He did not have a bellyache. He did not have an earache. Do you remember Papa had a tube in his belly? Do you have a tube in your belly? Do you? I don’t. That’s really, really, really, really, really sick.”
