JUST IN: Celine Dion’s Husband Dies

Celine Dion’s husband died Thursday after a years-long battle with throat cancer. He was 73.

René Angélil was diagnosed with throat cancer in 1998, and his health had deteriorated so much in the last year that Dion took a leave of absence from her Vegas residency to care for him full time.

She announced the news in a post on her website.

“René Angélil, 73, passed away this morning at his home in Las Vegas after a long and courageous battle against cancer,” the post read.

He started "courting" her when she was 14. He was much much older. Kind of creapy if you want my opinion.

The issue now is she loved him. He stood by her and she is an awesome woman. She put her career on hold when he first got diagnosed and then came back. Love isn't always about age...and she just lost the love of her life. Get over it.

She loved him and remained with him not divorcing him like so many mega stars do, and he helped with her career and always supported her. Sorry for the loss.
