Celine Dion’s brother Daniel is dying of cancer, Gossip Cop confirms. The sad news comes just one day after the death of Dion’s husband Rene Angelil.

Tragically, now Dion’s rep tells Gossip Cop that Daniel’s death is “imminent.” He is currently in Montreal, where he has been battling cancer in his throat, tongue, and brain. We’re told it “could be hours” or “days” until he succumbs to the illnesses.

Daniel, 59, is one of Dion’s 13 siblings. She is the youngest in their family, which remains based in Canada. Their 89-year-old mother, Therese, is among the relatives currently at his bedside.

Dion was in Nevada Thursday when Angelil, 73, passed away at their Las Vegas home following his own battle with throat cancer. Angelil, whom she wed in 1994, is credited with discovering Dion and turning her into a superstar. He managed her career for decades, before stepping down due to health woes.

Dion and Angelil have three children together, and he also leaves behind adult kids from two previous marriages. In the wake of his passing, the singer has canceled residency concerts scheduled for this weekend, and is not expected to resume her performances until late February. The superstar has not released a public statement, but she has received an outpouring of support from celebrities on social media, where stars have been tweeting their condolences.
