LAS VEGAS — We’ve lost quite a few celebrities this first month of 2016. And now, Celine Dion is mourning the death of her husband, René Angelil.
He lost his long battle with cancer Thursday morning when he passed away at the couple’s Las Vegas home.
Celine’s team confirmed the news via Twitter.
Angelil reportedly was diagnosed with throat cancer in 1998.
The couple has three children together — a 14-year-old and 5-year-old twins. He also has three children from a previous marriage.
René Angelil was 73 years old.
