Celine Dion`s husband recovering from cancer surgery
London:Singer Celine Dion`s husband Rene Angelil has undergone a surgery to remove tumour from his throat.
The `My Heart Will Go On` hitmaker has been supporting him after he underwent a surgery on December 23 to have a tumour removed, and the couple are relieved the operation was successful.
"Putting to rest rumours that have been circulating these past few weeks, Rene Angelil`s office confirmed today that he has been recovering at home in Las Vegas following surgery to remove a cancerous tumour from his throat on December 23rd.
"The procedure was successful and Mr Angelil was released from hospital a few days following the surgery," Dion`s representative said.
Angelil -- who has grown-up children Patrick, Jean-Pierre and Anne-Marie from his previous marriages and Rene-Charles, 13, and twins Eddy and Nelson, three, with Dion -- has taken a break from his career managing his 45-year-old spouse to focus on his recovery and relax with his family.
"During his recovery, Mr Angelil has decided to take a short hiatus from his normal work schedule, and concentrate on rebuilding his strength through proper rest and nutrition," the representative added.
