Celine Dion loses brother and husband
Singer Celine Dion is in mourning after the death of one of her brothers, Daniel Dion, following a battle with cancer.
The death comes at the worst possible time for the singer, whose husband, Rene Angelil, died only days before from cancer.
Daniel Dion was aged 59 years old, and died at a palliative care center in Terrebonne, Quebec, outside Montreal, according to a statement by Celine’s representative, Kim Jakwerth. He was the 8th of 14 Dion children, and had two daughters.
The singer had only lost 73-year old Angelil two days earlier, following a long battle with throat cancer.
