The popular Star singer Celine Dion who lost her husband 3years ago share touching tribute to him.
It has been three years to the day since Céline Dion lost her husband, René Angélil.
On Monday, the 50-year-old diva shared a photo of her late husband taken during happier times.
René, who also served as Céline’s manager for decades, died following a multiyear battle with throat cancer.
The Quebecoise songstress posted the photo of her former manager and lover with captions in French and English.’My dearest René….always with me…..always will be,’ she wrote. ‘In loving memory… xx …’
Céline’s husband died on January 14, 2016, after three years of cancer treatments.The My Heart Will Go On singer first began a professional relationship with René at the age of 12 when he became her manager.
He showed an extreme commitment and belief in Céline’s future, going so far as to mortgage his own home to finance her 1981 debut album.
The two began their May-December relationship when she was 19, and their extravagant 1994 marriage was broadcast live on Canadian television.
Nine months after her husband’s death, Céline revealed the pivotal nature of René’s influence in her life — she said he was the only man she had ever loved (and ever kissed) during an interview on CBS .Despite difficulties conceiving, the couple had three sons together: René-Charles in 2001, and fraternal twins Eddy and Nelson in 2010.
In February of last year, Céline explained the extent of René’s illness on the Australian show The Project.
‘For three years my husband did not have a sip of water or food,’ said the Because You Loved Me singer. ‘He was eating through a tube. The only thing I hoped while he was in three years of agony — I wanted him to live in peace.
I wanted him to feel so light and no worries.’.
