Five-time Grammy winner Celine Dion remained married to only one man, René Angélil, from 1994 to 2016. Their marriage was tragically over when her beloved husband died of throat cancer. Even after his demise, the singer commits to miss him forever.

Birthday message from a mystery man

On numerous occassions, the mother-of-three has been spotted with her backup dancer, Pepe Munoz. These two have an undeniable chemistry that has sparked dating rumors.

They adorably attend to each other, but Celine stated that it was just casual friendship.

On Celine’s 51st birthday, Pepe posted a sweet tribute to her on his Instagram profile. "Happy Birthday Boss", he captioned their lovely photo.

Is Celine dating again?

Celine addressed the dating rumors after announcing her first world tour in more than a decade with a concert in downtown L.A.

The Canadian sensation opened up about how she is still coping with losing her husband, René-Charles Angélil while promoting her Courage world tour.

She named the tour in honor of the courage that helped her return to the stage after the deaths of her husband and brother in 2016.

The 51-year-old in a recent interview with Extra revealed:

At first, I felt for him quite a bit. Pepe is gay, and at first I think some people did not know that. The thing is that he's my best friend and we dance together and he did so much for me and even just holding my hand it's something that I haven't had for a long time. A hug from a 6' 3" man, it was wonderful and people really thought there was a romance going on.

Celine also said Pepe has done so much for her inner strength, mental and spiritual health.

During her interview, she also explained that she and Pepe bonded right away as friends and that their relationship evolved.

So, what do people think?

Amazing how even nowadays people can’t grasp the concept of a loving relationship that doesn’t envolve sexuality...🤦‍♂️ Cheers to your friendship!
