True Celine Dion's Dying Husband Celine Dion has broken her silence on the health of her dying husband, as well as his his final wish. In a new interview with USA Today, the legendary diva revealed what Angelil’s final wishes are as he battles cancer. "We have asked [doctors] many times, how long does he have, three weeks, three months? Rene wants to know," she told USA Today. "But they say they don't know." "Sometimes he just wants me to enter into a different place with him," she shared. "I'll say, 'You're scared? I understand. Talk to me about it.' And Rene says to me, 'I want to die in your arms.' Okay, fine, I'll be there, you'll die in my arms." The “My Heart Will Go On” singer revealed that it was actually her husband that inspired her triumphant return to Vegas. "That first show, it will be fragile," she told the paper of her Aug. 27 debut. "There will be moments. Of emptiness, laughter, awkwardness, tearing up. But that's the point of coming back -- otherwise, I [would] just release an album." "I didn't want to be here at first" -- but Angelil insisted upon it,” said Dion.

Dion and Rene married in 1994 and share three beautiful children together, Rene-Charles, 14, and twins Nelson and Eddy, 4. Celine Dion’s husband isn't the only one who can’t wait to see the singer back on stage. Caesars Palace has generated a staggering $500 million in sales over the past 12 year, proving her fans keep coming back for more. Dion has paved the way for future acts, such as everyone from Elton John, to Mariah Carey and Britney Spears, but the “My Heart Will Go On” singer modestly doesn't see it that way. “I don't want to say I’m responsible for any of those wonderful things,” Celine said during an interview with NBC Nightly News. “But, I’m very happy,’ said the legendary singer. Dion continued to touch upon the sensitive subject of her husband, René Angélil, and how he was the reason that she was able to get the courage and inspiration to return to the stage after her hiatus.
