Céline Dion and René Angélil

Famous Canadian star, Céline Dion has been forced to cancel her Asia tour and postpone her Las Vegas residency because of her husband René Angélil’s health condition.

Double trouble

The couple just can’t seem to catch a break when it comes their illnesses. Angélil had a tumor removed from his throat in December, while Céline has also been fighting her medical problems that have caused inflammation in her throat muscles. Namely, she has not been able to perform live since July 29.

“I want to devote every ounce of my strength and energy to my husband’s healing, and to do so, it’s important for me to dedicate this time to him and to our children,” Dion stated via her official website.

Love Vs. Business

Céline Dion and René Angélil celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary in December. Céline was sincere when it comes to her having to cancel the Asian tour and postpone Las Vegas performances.

I also want to apologize to all my fans everywhere, for inconveniencing them, and I thank them so much for their love and support.” The singer is apparently very sorry she had to let her fans down, but they’ll sure forgive her.

Angélil, age 72, has stepped down as Dion’s manager in June.

“Considering our long-standing friendship, our mutual respect, and our past collaborations, this was a logical step for all of us,” he said about their professional and private relationship.

Angélil and Dion are parents to René-Charles, 13, and twins Eddy and Nelson, 3.
