Celine Dion is NOT on the verge of an “emotional breakdown,” despite a report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the story, which is as insensitive as it is inaccurate.

On Tuesday, RadarOnline headlined a gallery of random photos showing Dion looking upset, “Grief Stricken Celine Dion Nearing ‘Emotional Breakdown’ After Husband Death.” The superstar no doubt had a heartbreaking few months earlier this year. But it’s said she’s now “on the verge of emotional collapse.” A so-called “source” describes her as often being “in a flood of tears.”

“Friends told Radar that Dion is staggering behind the scenes,” writes the site, which says the singer has been “brought to her knees.” She’s also described as looking “gaunt and weak.” The supposed “source from her inner circle” adds, “Everyone is praying that she’ll be OK, but we’re all concerned.” And another “close family friend” is quoted as saying, “She’s struggling to survive every day.”

Let Gossip Cop be perfectly clear: It’s highly unlikely any “close family friend” or member of Dion’s “inner circle” would be talking to RadarOnline. It was just a month ago that the webloid and its sister outlet the National Enquirer were falsely claiming Dion had happily moved on with her life and was dating guitarist Kevin Girouard.

Funny how that isn’t mentioned anywhere in this new “breakdown” piece. It’s also worth noting that this “weak and gaunt” angle comes just one day after Dion dazzled in the front row at Paris Fashion Week (see photo above). In fact, she’s been in Paris vacationing and working for the last month.

A rep for Dion exclusively tells Gossip Cop these “emotional collapse” allegations are “not true at all.” It’s also particularly shameful of RadarOnline to run them given all that the star has been through this year. Baseless claims designed to capitalize on her tragedy shouldn’t be making it worse.
