Faces & names: Dion on hiatus to help ailing husband

Celine Dion announced that she is postponing “all of her show business activities indefinitely” so that she can focus on helping her husband, Rene, who is battling cancer.

The singer will cancel her shows at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas until further notice, and also will cancel a tour of Asia that had been scheduled for the fall.

“I want to devote every ounce of my strength and energy to my husband’s healing, and to do so, it’s important for me to dedicate this time to him and to our children. I also want to apologize to all my fans everywhere, for inconveniencing them, and I thank them so much for their love and support,” Dion said.
