“Rene hopes to die in my arms” – Celine Dion

Celine DionCeline Dion will be returning to Vegas this week after putting her regular show on hold for two years to take care of her husband Rene Angelil during his struggle with throat cancer.

In an emotional interview, USA Today reports, the 47-year-old singer opened up about bracing herself for Angelil’s death, and returning to the stage.

“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,” she said.

”But René really gave me a gift,” she says. “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.”

While Dion said she tries to stay strong for her husband, sometimes he “needs something more sensitive than that, more than just positivity…René says to me, ‘I want to die in your arms.’ OK, fine, I’ll be there, you’ll die in my arms.”
