Celine Dion's Husband Reveals He's Recovering After Tumor Operation

By Andrea Dresdale

Gabe Ginsberg/WireImageCeline Dion‘s husband and manager Rene Angelil is recovering from an operation he had in December to remove a cancerous tumor from his throat, it was revealed on Friday.

Angelil’s office issued a statement saying that the surgery took place December 23, and he’s been recovering at home in Las Vegas ever since. The statement added that Angelil, who’s 72, “has decided to take a short hiatus from his normal work schedule, and concentrate on rebuilding his strength through proper rest and nutrition.”

Angelil was previously diagnosed with throat cancer in 1999.

Celine said in the statement, “I want him to focus on getting back to 100 percent. I’ve been doing my shows at the Colosseum and everything’s under control. At home we’ve been spending a lot of quality time with the family.”

She added, “We feel very fortunate that we’ve been able to get the best care possible and we thank God every day for helping us to get through this ordeal.”‘
