Celine Dion’s Brother, Daniel, Has Passed Away
A tough week for superstar Celine Dion has gotten even harder. Celine Dion's brother, Daniel, has reportedly passed away at the age of 59.
Celine Dion's husband René Angélil passed away on Thursday after a long battle with throat cancer.
On Friday reports surfaced that Daniel didn't have many days to live. His relatives told media outlets that he only had days or hours to live on Friday. Daniel's sister, Claudette Dion, told Le Journal de Montréal, that Daniel had cancer of the throat, tongue and brain.
Late Friday, Celine Dion revealed the plans for her late husband's memorial services. His funeral will take place at the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal. It is the location where he and Dion wed in 1994. Dion's performances at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace were cancelled this weekend, but she will be taking to the stage on Feb. 3 for a "Celebration of Life," according to her Facebook post.
