Celine Dion, 56, responds to romance rumors over younger companion, eight years after death of husband

It’s been eight years since Celine Dion lost the love of her life, husband and manager Rene Angelil, but the superstar singer has made it very clear that she’s not thinking of moving on yet.

Rumors about her love life have persisted for years now – as is so often the case for the highest of high-profile celebrities – but it would seem as though Celine remains committed to the only man she ever kissed.

Dion and Angelil’s relationship has unusual roots to say the least. The latter first met the former when she was just 12 years old.

Four years later, Dion and Angelil went public with their romance, and the pair married at a lavish ceremony in 1994.

“I don’t date. I don’t have a boyfriend,” she said in an interview with USA Today.
