IN RECENT years, singer Celine Dion has been battling serious health complications.
Her health issues have continued to worry fans, even more so after “Celine Dion dead” start trending online in July 2023.
Who is Celine Dion?
Celine Dion is a singer who was born on March 30, 1968, in Charlemagne, Canada.
Often referred to as the “Queen of Power Ballads,” she is best known for her powerful and technically skilled vocals.
Over the years, she has released countless songs, including My Heart Will Go On from the film Titanic, It’s All Coming Back to Me Now, Because You Loved Me, The Power of Love, and Beauty and the Beast from Disney’s animated film of the same name.
Thanks to the success of her career, she has been able to amass an estimated fortune of $800million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Why is ‘Celine Dion dead’ trending?
Dion embarked on her Courage World Tour in 2019, but in 2022, she started postponing several shows.
Eventually, in May 2023, she decided to cancel the tour altogether after suffering complications from stiff person syndrome, which is a rare neurological condition that causes spasms and muscle rigidity.
“I’m so sorry to disappoint all of you once again. I’m working really hard to build back my strength, but touring can be very difficult even when you’re 100%,” Dion said, via CNN.
“It’s not fair to you to keep postponing the shows, and even though it breaks my heart, it’s best that we cancel everything now until I’m really ready to be back on stage again. I want you all to know, I’m not giving up… and I can’t wait to see you again!”
After announcing the cancellation, Dion stepped away from the spotlight to focus on recovery.
Her absence ultimately sparked concern from fans and led to her becoming the latest victim of the celebrity death hoax trend.
In July 2023, “Celine Dion death” started trending on TikTok after several users claimed she had died, but fans can rest assured knowing that she is alive and well.
How is Celine Dion doing?
Amid the death hoax rumors, Dion’s sister, Claudette, gave fans a positive update on her condition, revealing that her sister is in “a determined state of mind” and “working hard” to manage her symptoms.
“We’re all crossing our fingers, and I’m glad people are concerned,” Claudette told host Jean-Philippe Wauthier during an appearance on the Quebec TV show, Bonsoir Bonsoir, via Hello! Magazine.
“She is working hard, and we are confident that we will succeed. It can’t be a story like this.”
Dion herself has not addressed fans about her condition in recent weeks, but around the same time as Claudette’s interview, she did reemerge on social media to welcome Kendall Jenner to the L’Oréal Paris family.
“Thrilled to welcome the amazing @kendalljenner to the @lorealparis family! – Team Celine,” she wrote on Instagram, via Hello! Magazine.
Dion has been a member of the L’Oréal team since becoming a global spokesperson in 2019.
