Celine Dion is probably having the worst week of her life.

Yesterday her husband René Angélil, passed away after losing his battle with cancer. And now we found out that the 47-year-old’s brother Daniel Dion is ALSO dying of cancer.

Damn.

Celine’s sister, Claudette, told The Journal of Montreal that their sibling is on his deathbed, saying:

“It’s very painful. It’s a matter of days or hours.”

And that he’s suffering from three different types of cancer…

“It looks a lot like René, he had cancer of the throat, tongue and brain. Our family is very experienced.”

Claudette added that their 89-year-old mom, Thérèse, is in Montreal to be with her son:

“We are with Daniel, day and night. He is 59 years old, very young to be the end of life.”

Wow. It is hard to imagine the kind of pain that this family is going through, and especially how Celine feels. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Dions…

Our condolences.

René Angélil, the husband, mentor and manager of Céline Dion, has died. Here’s a statement made by his rep:

“Rene Angelil, 73, passed away this morning at his home in Las Vegas after a long and courageous battle against cancer,” the rep said in a statement. “The family requests that their privacy be respected at the moment.”

Angélil is survived by the Anne-Marie, Patrick and Jean-Pierre, his adult children from previous marriages and the couple’s three children – René-Charles, 14, and their 5 year old twins Nelson and Eddy. The saddest thing is that the small children won’t have their father around, or many memories of him. Still, he led a good, full life it seems.

Celine Dion’s Husband Rene Angelil Using Feeding Tube…Sad

Celine Dion's Husband Rene Angelil Using Feeding Tube...Sad

I really feel for Celine Dion and her husband Rene Angelil. They have been together for what seems like forever and it’s hard to see someone you love go through something so horrible – like throat cancer. It has just been revealed that Rene has to use a feeding tube and that she feeds him three times a day.

“Oh, come on,” Dion, 46, told ABC News’ Deborah Roberts. “The fans, they know that I’m an open book. I sing. That’s the only thing I know.”

She then detailed Angelil’s painful battle with throat cancer. “He can’t use his mouth,” Dion revealed. “He can’t eat, so I feed him. He’s got a feeding tube. I have to feed him three times a day. I do this myself, and so I feed my husband and feed my kids.”

Dion and Angelil, 73, married in 1994, and share three sons together: Rene-Charles, 14, and twins Eddy and Nelson, 4. Angelil was first diagnosed with cancer in 1999, and underwent a procedure in December 2013 to remove a tumor from his throat.

“We are taking life one day at a time,” Dion told ABC News. “[But] we are choosing to live.”

She is a strong, strong woman. We can only hope and pray that he is able to pull through. Our thoughts and prayers are with Celine and Rene as he battles throat cancer.

Celine Dion publicly claims drugs killed Whitney Houston

Might be a bit early to run around claiming drugs killed Whitney Houston. Maybe we should instead wait to hear from the coroner to start making public statements? Of course the first thing I thought was that Whitney died from some sort of drug overdose (with her history it’s not a big stretch), but I wouldn’t go out and claim it publicly!

Speaking this morning via phone on Good Morning America, Celine Dion didn’t hold back when talking about Houston’s troubled life and legendary career.

“It’s just really unfortunate that drugs, bad people, bad influences took over her dreams, her motherhood,” the French-Canadian star, 43, said of Houston, who famously fessed up in a 2002 interview with Diane Sawyer about using cocaine, marijuana and pills. “When you think about Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson . . . To get into drugs like that for whatever reason–because of stress, bad influence, whatever.”

Dion lamented that her immensely talented idol, who left behind daughter Bobbi Kristina, apparently succumbed like other superstars before her. “What happens when you have everything? Love, support, motherhood…Something happens that I don’t understand. That’s why I’m scared of show business, of drugs and hanging out. That’s why I don’t go to parties!”

What do you think? Was Celine out of line – or do you agree with her?
