Rene Angelil, Celine Dion’s manager and husband died Thursday morning after a long battle with cancer. He died in the couple’s home in Las Vegas, which came as a shock to everyone close to them as he was feeling much better recently.
Rene battled cancer since 1998 and the last year was a real struggle, with Celine taking leave of absence from her Las Vegas shows to stay with her husband. Celine met Rene when she was only 12 and he soon became her manager. In 1994, they got married, despite the 26-year age difference. Prior to his career as a manager, Rene was a pop singer in his native Canada, having some success with his band Les Baronets.
