Music 26/08/2015

Celine Dion's husband wants to "die in her arms".

Her husband René Angélil is 73 and is battling throat cancer and his final wish is to be with Celine when he passes away.

Recalling their conversation, Celine said: "I'll say, 'You're scared? I understand. Talk to me about it."

"And René says to me, 'I want to die in your arms.' So I say: 'Okay, fine, I'll be there, you'll die in my arms.'"

However, on his instructions, she has returned to Las Vegas for her at Caesar's Palace.

Celine went on to say : "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."
