Los Angeles: Singer Celine Dion, along with two other people, has been appointed the administrator of her husband Rene Angelil's estate.

The "My Heart Will Go On" singer was left devastated when her spouse and former manager lost his battle with cancer in January. Two other people will be in charge of distributing Rene's assets, as directed in the will he left, reported TMZ.

Rene's will states two of his children from his first marriage will each receive a home in Canada, while the sale of two properties, an estate in Florida which is currently listed for USD 45 million and a USD 25 million castle in Quebec, will generate USD 9 million to be placed in a trust fund, likely for his and Celine's three kids.

The 47-year-old singer will retain the other properties, as well as all of the furniture, cars, clothing, jewellery and personal effects, and most of the money will go into a trust, which would typically provide for the surviving spouse and his six children.

In the probate documents, which were filed in Nevada, Dion had to declare she is not a felon in order to be named an administrator.
