Since Celine Dion announced her diagnosis, she has receded from the limelight. Her sister Claudette Dion has been providing fans with updates on what has been going on in the singer’s life.
“She’s doing everything to recover. She’s a strong woman,” Claudette said in an interview, she added that there is little known about the condition, even by the Dion family. Celine’s older sister also mentioned how the family can do little about the “pain” the singer is in.
74-year-old Claudette talked about the symptoms her sister is suffering from, she said, “There are spasms – they’re impossible to control. You know when people often jump up in the night because of a cramp in the leg or the calf? It’s a bit like that, but in all muscles.”
Dion revealed her diagnosis late last year in December 2022. She posted an emotional video on social media to tell her fans about her diagnosis of Stiff Person Syndrome and to announce that her tour was indefinitely postponed.
She said the condition was also affecting her vocal cords and hence, her ability to sing, which is why she had put a pin in her Courage world tour till she felt she was better enough to take the stage again.
The pop sensation has since then been working with “a great team of doctors” and also working with a sports-medicine therapist to regain her strength.
She is now living at home with her three sons, René-Charles, Eddy, and Nelson. She shared all three boys with her late husband, René Angelil, who died in January 2016 at age 73 years old.
In 2008, the couple purchased a five-acre plot of land. Two years later they began to build their dream home on the piece of land from scratch.
The home was inspired by the Bahamas, it had 13 bedrooms with 14 bathrooms. The home also had a lot of water features, which included two pools, slides, as well as lazy river.
But the singer sold her dream home to move to Las Vegas, where she had signed a residency deal in 2005. She thought the move would make it easier for her family to be together.
Her original home, which she built, remained on the market for quite a while before the singer managed to sell it four years later for the price of $38.5 million. She sold the home only a year after her beloved husband had passed away.
She reportedly also sold a property in Summerlin, Las Vegas, in April 2023. She made $30 million on the sale and then bought the newly constructed mansion in 2017 for $9.2 million.
