Celine Dion’s brother has passed away two days after her husband


Her husband, René Angélil, only passed away after his lengthy battle with cancer, and now Celine Dion's eldest brother, Daniel has also died.

Daniel passed away in the early hours of yesterday morning after a battle of throat, lung and brain cancer. He was only 59.

Daniel was one of Celine's 13 siblings. Their sister, Claudette, told Le Journal de Montréal that he was surrounded by family, friends and loved ones, including their mother, during his final hours.

Our thoughts are with the Dion family after such a sorrowful week.
