During the course of her career, the singer has shown her appreciation for her spouse by dedicating songs to him and speaking well of him when she has been interviewed by the media.
René first entered the singer’s life in the role of manager and mentor; but, in 1987, after René’s divorce from his second wife, their connection transitioned from professional to love.
He fought against the sickness for a number of years until passing away in 2016.
The Hollywood couple first connected in the entertainment business while Dion was still very young; René was 26 years older than Dion at the time. They got criticism from members of the public over their age difference, but the two did not mind.
“There was an age gap, but, as is the case with many fantastic relationships, whatever the age gap may have been, it has a tendency to fade into the background as time goes on. ”
Before René’s passing from cancer in 2016, the couple had been together for the whole of their 21-year relationship and Celine continues to talk about the once-in-a-lifetime love she had with her late husband even after his passing.
