Céline Dion’s May-December Romance Made Mom Crazy

From our friends at Babycenter!

With their 20th wedding anniversary coming up next year, Celine Dion and René Angélil’s relationship has stood the test of time. The singer admits, though, that their 26-year age difference was a big obstacle to overcome – particularly for her mother! Celine met René in 1980, when he was 38 and she was only 12. Though he started out as her manager, their relationship eventually turned personal.

You really need to check the facts before you comment on anything and offend them with groundless accusations. Rene had been married twice before and had divorced his second wife long before Celine and he got involved and serious.
