Céline Dion Talks Late Husband René Angélil, Says He’s The Only Man She’s Ever Kissed
Celebrating of her 1,000th performance at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Céline Dion sat down with CBS Sunday Morning to talk about the evolution of her residency in Sin City. And in addition to charming us all (as she does time and time again), the singer also spoke about her relationship with late husband René Angélil, revealing that he’s the only man she’s ever kissed.
“Before he left, it was very, very difficult for all of us, for me especially and my children, to see the man of my life die a little bit more every day,” she admitted in the chat.”And when he left, it was kind of a relief for me that the man that I love, the only man that I kissed, the only man that I loved — yeah, I never kissed another man in my life.”
Dion continued, “So the man of my life was my partner, and we were one. So when he stopped suffering, I said to myself, ‘He’s OK. And he deserves not to suffer.'”
The couple married in 1994 and were together for 21 years. Angélil passed away due to throat cancer in January 2016.
