When did celine and renee start dating
She returned to the hotel in 2011 with her new residency, Celine, which spanned three years and featured 70 annual shows.
She was forced to postpone her residency in the summer of 2014 to care for her ailing husband and manager René, who underwent the removal of a cancerous tumour the previous December.
As of September of 2014, Rene Angelil is still living, though in poor health.
Two days later, Celine's brother passed away, also of cancer.
Celine still keeps her husband's memory alive, recently revealing to Australian magazine her pre-show ritual that involves a bronze replica of René's hand. I'm trying to prove to him every day I'm fine.
It was actually her late husband René Angélil who first discovered her talent, becoming moved to tears when he listened to a recording sent in by her brother Michel.
René mortgaged his home to fund her first record and the rest is history – a star was born. The couple first met when Celine was 12, but didn't start dating until she was 19 After spending time polishing her English and undergoing more vocal training, Celine felt ready to take on the world.
