Singer Celine Dion has never quite opened up on her relationship status over the years, especially after the death of her husband, Rene Angelil a few years ago. However, in a recent appearance at What Happens Live, she opened up on her dating life and answered some fan questions.
"You're supposed to ask one question," she answered, giving the fan a little sass. "I don't date. I don't have a boyfriend. And, you know, it doesn't mean that I will not find someone in my life. If I do, that will be great. If I don't, that will be great."
In fact, Celine said that she still remembers her late husband, who passed away at the age of 73 in 2016. "I'm still in love," she continued. "I mean, once you're in love so much, I've been living all my life with René, he's still within me. I see him through the eyes of my children [René Charles, 18, and 9-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy] every day. I'm so passionate about life and I'm so lucky to have my three beautiful sons."
"If I would have someone in my life, I would tell you because I've been an open book all my life," she said. "But if I do, I'll come back and I'll talk to you about it."
Staying on the topic of Celine's love life, Andy asked the "Imperfections" singer what her reaction was following the rumors that she was dating her best friend Pepe Munoz.
"I was not surprised," she began. "It's just that…because we're best friends, we're in show business and the tabloids and this industry is made for that. ‘Oh, that's the way that best friends hold hands? Nuh-uh.' He is my best friend and we have a good time together."
"It feels like today, you cannot have a man holding your hand," she shared. "They didn't know anything about [Pepe]...They started things. Until one day I said, ‘He's gay, he's not my boyfriend. He's gay, calm down. I'm not trying to hide here. Everything's cool.' But we can hold hands! We can go to the movies and restaurants. Calm down, people!"
Way to shut rumors down!
