‘My Heart Will Go On’? Celine Dion’s sister updates fans after health scare

2 min read

Celine Dion has sparked concerns for her health after keeping a low profile for the last few weeks…

This after the Grammy-winning star postponed her Las Vegas show from November 2021 to March 2022 due to “medical reasons”.

Now fans are desperate for a health update and have taken to social media to vent their frustrations at the lack of information.


Last month, Celine Dion revealed that she would be postponing her new Las Vegas concert on the orders of her doctors.

A statement on her social media accounts read: “Céline has been experiencing severe and persistent muscle spasms, which are preventing her from performing. Her medical team continues to evaluate and treat her.”

The singer personally added: “I’m heartbroken by this. My team and I have been working on our new show for the past eight months, and to not be able to open this November saddens me beyond words.

“I’m especially sorry for disappointing all the fans who’ve been making their plans to come to Las Vegas.”

Celine Dion’s weight loss over the years has also been a cause for concern. But the Canadian star attempted to put to bed any fears in 2019 when she told ABC News: “It’s true that I’m a little thinner. Everything’s fine, nothing’s wrong.”

Celine Dion may be MIA due to recovery, but her team continues to post throwback videos on her social media platforms.

But fans of the 53-year-old star were more concerned about being given a health update.

They wrote in the comment section of a recent post;

“How’s Celine? Give us some news please”

“How are you Celine? Please stay safe.”

“How are you feeling?”



Sensing the growing fears, Celine Dion’s sister Claudette spoke to French publication Paris Match.

She assured fans that all is well for the mom-of-three.

She said: “What’s happening to her is sad. But it’s not serious. Celine always confides in me and asks for advice when something is wrong. I know she’s in good spirits.”
