CLAIM: Celine Dion “Ditches Wedding Ring” Amid Rene Angelil Marriage Crisis
Celine Dion and Rene Angelil’s marriage is in crisis, reports the National Enquirer. According to the tabloid, Dion “has removed her wedding ring and looks miserable” in new photos with Angelil, to whom she’s been married for 18 years.
The Enquirer says that at a recent New York concert for her most loyal fans, “the normally outgoing entertainer appeared drawn, haggard, preoccupied… and very tense.” “Celine ditched her wedding ring and looked stressed out and unhappy to be with Rene,” a so-called “friend” tells the magazine.
Then, because the Enquirer has no additional evidence of any current problems between Dion and Angelil, the tabloid brings in a random “body language expert” to stare at pictures of the performer and say she looks anxious. Oh, and the mag brings up an old interview in which Dion said she and Angelil had gone through “tough times.” That’s pretty much all the Enquirer has to back up its cover story implying that the couple is on the brink of a split.
It’s completely untrue. If the Enquirer had bothered to check, the tabloid might have learned that Dion always takes off her ring to perform, and the picture at the center of this faux controversy was taken when she was going to do her soundcheck. A source close to the singer tells Gossip Cop the Enquirer report is “lame” and completely baseless. We’re assured the only trouble between Dion and Angelil is in the tabloid’s imagination.
