Céline Dion‘s close family and friends reported that the singer is experiencing severe health issues which forced her to postpone her tour. According to a source cited by Here Magazine, she is no longer able to walk due to “severe and persistent muscle spasms” that have recently worsened.
“She can no longer get out of bed, nor move, nor walk. She suffers from pain in her legs and feet that paralyze her. She is very weak and has lost a lot of weight,” the source said. “It’s a disease that can require long convalescence. If things don’t improve, she could be away for several months or even a year. Because her symptoms are more worrying than expected.”
In a heartfelt Instagram post, the singer herself wrote: “My heart is broken by this situation. My team and I have been working on our new show for eight months and not being able to take the stage in November saddens me beyond words.”
The Canadian superstar’s tour, Courage, was a huge success in September 2019, but in January 2022, she canceled the remaining North American dates due to the persistent muscle spasm she has been experiencing for some time now. This time, she informed her fans that her progress with treating her condition is taking longer than expected. “The good news is that I am doing a little bit better…but it’s going very slow. And it’s very frustrating for me. You know I’m getting treatment from my doctors, taking medication, but I’m still experiencing some spasms, and it’s taking a lot longer for me to recover than I had hoped,” she said.
The Grammy Award winner ended her post by sending support to Ukraine and its people.
After the health issues she experienced, Dion announced that her tour would begin in May 2022, but the shows have now been pushed back to February 2023. At the same time, she delayed her Las Vegas residency.
Ever since the passing of her husband, fans have been worried for Dion, who is way skinnier than a normal person should be. According to reports, the superstar only weighs around 85 pounds. In the past, she didn’t pay much attention to the negative comments and claimed she loved the way she looks. However, her appearance did concern many.
