Celine Dion's husband Rene Angelil has died at 73.
A statement released on the singer's Facebook page on Thursday read: 'It is with deep sadness that we announce that René Angélil, aged 73, died this morning at her residence in Las Vegas after a long and courageous fight against cancer.
'The family wishes to live the mourning in privacy. Other information you will be provided in the next few days.'
Angelil was first diagnosed with throat cancer in 1999 and it returned several times.
In March last year, a tearful Dion revealed her husband was no longer able to eat and was getting all of his meals through a tube.
She said: '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. So I feed my husband, then I feed my kids.'
By August, Dion said her husband was preparing for his death. His final wish was to be with the singer when he passed away.
May his soul rest in peace.
