Celine Dion’s husband and former manager, Rene Angelil, has passed away.

The 73-year-old passed away from cancer in their Las Vegas home. He was first diagnosed with lung cancer back in 2000. Dion took two career breaks throughout his struggles to help look after him.

Back in August 2015 Dion spoke to USA Today.

“When it hits me, it’s going to hit me. But my biggest job is to tell my husband, we’re fine. I’ll take care of our kids. You’ll watch us from another spot.”

Angelil first managed groups in Canada before being approached by Dion’s parents. He agreed, and at the time she was 12 years old. It is reported he mortgaged his house to finance her first album.

The two married in 1994 and they have three children together.
