Celine Dion NOT Dating Guitarist Kevin Girouard, Despite Report
Celine Dion is not dating guitarist Kevin Girouard, despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the claim. We’re told it’s “100 percent not true.”
According to a National Enquirer story, picked up by its equally discredited sister site RadarOnline, Dion has fallen for “young stud” guitarist Kevin Girouard, who was “handpicked by her late husband” Rene Angelil. The supermarket tabloid claims Angelil “managed every aspect of her career, including finding his own replacement for his beloved widow.” A so-called “eyewitness” tells the magazine that during Dion’s performance at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on May 17, “Kevin couldn’t take his eyes off Celine.” The mistaken “onlooker” alleges that Dion, in a tiny dress, was “definitely enjoying the attention,” and adds, “It was wonderful to see her looking so happy.”
The tabloid notes Girouard is now “permanently rooted in Las Vegas, where Dion lives full-time,” and claims an “insider” says “the two have developed a deep bond over their love of music.” The magazine then wrongly reports, “She continues to mourn Angelil, who managed her career since she was only 12 years old, but the spark between Dion and Girouard is undeniable.” The publication’s specious “insider” claims that because Angelil was ill for a long time, Dion thought a lot about “what life was going to be like for her when he was gone,” and is now “enjoying having someone young and energetic like Kevin around.” “She lights up when he’s in the room,” concludes the outlet’s questionable source.
Gossip Cop looked into the claim, and Dion is not dating Girouard. A source close to the singer exclusively tells us the claim is “100 percent not true.” Among the inaccuracies, we’re told, is that Angelil did not hire him Girouard. Dion’s new manager “Aldo hired him.” What’s more, says Gossip Cop impeccable source, Dion “only sees the band during shows, never during off time. Never has.”
We’re not entirely surprised the Enquirer got this wrong. Back in 2013, the tabloid reported Dion “ditched her [wedding] ring,” and was “unhappy” in her marriage. The reality is the magazine manufactured that entire story about marital strife, based on the singer not wearing her ring. But the truth is Dion never wears his ring while performing.
