The singer’s net worth is $800 million
The singer’s net worth is currently $800 million, out of which $470 million came from her legendary residency at Caesars Palace. The condition has put her career in danger as the condition prevents the suffering person from walking as it causes rigidity and spasms in the trunk and limbs.

She was married to René Angélil, who died in 2016.

Celine Dion got married in 1994
The singer met her husband, René Angélil, when she was just 12 and he was 38. They began dating seven years later and got married in 1994. Unfortunately, René Angélil died in 2016 and the singer was shattered after his death. Vegas journalist Scott Roeben recently talked about her relationship with her late husband,
“Since René died, it’s been very difficult. He hasn’t been there to protect Celine. He was her touchstone, he looked after everything for her. Celine relied on him for everything — her management, her finances, her music production — and things have gone downhill since his passing,” adding, “It’s true — she may not ever be able to perform live again.”
Her husband was also her manager and he even helped her negotiate her first residency with Caesars in 2003. Since then her residencies have grossed roughly $681.3 million.
