Classic R&B singer, who has one of the most magnificent voices in the world, Celine Dion has just painfully revealed, with tears rolling down her cheek that her husband wants to “die in her arms”.
The singer’s 73-year-old husband c, is battling throat cancer and his final wish is to be with her when he passes away. The couple married in 1994 after knowing each other for 14 years.
Recapping the previous conversation she had with her husband, she told ABC:
“I’ll say, ‘You’re scared? I understand. Talk to me about it.’
“And René says to me, ‘I want to die in your arms.’ OK, fine, I’ll be there, you’ll die in my arms.”He can’t eat so I feed him,”
“He’s got a feeding tube. I have to feed him three times a day.”
“Don’t forget, he’s been the leader of the band all my life. So it [hacks] him off to not see me all day and over here working. But he wants me to do this, do the show, do the interviews. But he freaks when I’m not home with him, too …
I didn’t want to be here at first, I don’t need it. Don’t get me wrong, I love singing for people, but I have priorities. But René really gave me a gift.
“All my grieving, it was during this last year. I think I’ve got this. For now. 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.”
