"He is the reason" Celine Dion Puts Her Career On Hold For Husband

The singer revealed this when Speaking to ABC News' Deborah Roberts in a new interview set to air Wednesday, Mar. 25.

Five-time Grammy winning singer Celine Dion has revealed that her husband Rene Angelil is currently battling with throat cancer and has to eat through a feeding tube.

The singer revealed this when Speaking to ABC News' Deborah Roberts in a new interview set to air Wednesday, Mar. 25.

A video preview from her sit-down chat featured the singing sensation wiping away tears and opening up about her choice to put her career on hold.

"Oh, come on," Dion told Deborah, “The fans, they know that I'm an open book. I sing. That's the only thing I know.

She also detailed Angelil's painful battle with throat cancer saying "He can't use his mouth. He can’t eat, so I feed him. He’s got a feeding tube. I have to feed him three times a day. I do this myself, and so I feed my husband and feed my kids."

"We are taking life one day at a time. But we are choosing to live", she added.

The superstar's rep confirmed to Us Weekly several weeks ago that Dion will be returning to Las Vegas to continue her residency but her journey back to Caesars Palace, however, has been incredibly difficult given her husband's deteriorating health condition.

She is however said to return to Vegas in late August to resume her residency.

The "Heart Will Go On" singer's last performance at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace was in July 2014. At the time, Dion was struggling with an illness that caused her throat muscles to inflame. Following her personal health scare, she told fans she was postponing her career "indefinitely" to tend to Angelil.

Angelil is said to have first been diagnosed with cancer in 1999, and underwent a procedure in December 2013 to remove a tumor from his throat.
