Their love story puts Jack and Rose’s Titanic affair to shame.
They met when Celine Dion was just 12 years old and René, 38, became her manager. Celine opened up to People about her first meeting with her future husband, revealing that her incredible voice reduced him to tears. “While I was singing, he started to cry,” she said. The two had a very close working relationship that eventually blossomed into a romance.
Celine Dion has cancelled all her remaining live shows after being diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder, Stiff-Person Syndrome (SPS). That is a rare condition and not well understood. There is no known cure for Stiff Person Syndrome, but it is treatable through chemical intervention and immune therapies.
Céline Dion opening up about her diagnosis is really welcome, as we know that contact with others can play a vital role in helping people to live well with their condition. A personal story like this one will hopefully enable more people to reach out and offer support to one another.
Courage to you Celine, we are with you!
