Celine Dion's Brother Daniel Has Terminal Cancer

Celine Dion's brother, Daniel Dion, is dying of cancer, multiple reports say, days after the singer lost her husband to the disease.

René Angélil, who was married to Celine, 47, for more than 20 years and was the father of their three children, died on Thursday at age 73 after a long battle with throat cancer.

The Canadian singer's rep confirmed to multiple outlets on Saturday that Daniel, 59, one of Celine's 13 siblings, was battling cancer and does not have long to live.

Their sister Claudette Dion told Le Journal de Montréal that Daniel was suffering from cancer of the throat, tongue and brain was currently hospitalized. She said family members, including their 89-year-old mother Therese, have flocked to his side.

"It's very painful," she said. "It's a matter of days or hours."

Celine has not commented about her brother.
