René Angélil, Celine Dion

The five-time Grammy winner was just 12 years old when twice-divorced René declared her a star and became her mentor/manager. There was a 26-year age difference. In 1981, he mortgaged his home to fund Celine’s first record La voix du bon Dieu and, by 1993, the French-Canadian couple went public with their romance.

Last March, a tearful Dion revealed her husband was no longer able to eat and was getting all of his meals through a tube.

René leaves behind the couple’s fraternal twins Eddy and Nelson, 5, and son René-Charles Jr., 15. Angélil also has a son Patrick, 47 (with ex-wife #1 Denyse Duquette), and a son Jean-Pierre, 41, and daughter Anne-Marie, 38 (with ex-wife #2 Manon Kirouac).
