It’s a sad moment for Celine Dion. The iconic singer’s husband René Angélil is dead. He was 73 and the cause of his death was throat cancer. He died at his home in Henderson while under the care of a physician.

The Canadian songress made the announcement on her website and all her Twitter page. She wrote: “René Angélil, 73, passed away this morning at his home in Las Vegas after a long and courageous battle against cancer. The family requests that their privacy be respected at the moment; more details will be provided at a later time.”

“We have determined Mr. Angélil’s death was due to natural causes,” John Fudenberg, Clark County coroner, said. “No further investigation into his death is expected,” the Clark County Office of the Coroner confirmed in a statement on Thursday.
