Celine Dion just can't seem to catch a break lately.
The last year-and-a-half have been especially hard for the vocal powerhouse. She lost both her husband and brother to cancer in 2016, and then on top of it all, she has been struggling with a few health problems.
Dion has been dealing with a health crisis for a while now, although she never really explicitly revealed what she was diagnosed with, until recently.
In the 2010 documentary about her Taking Chances tour, Celine: Through the Eyes of the World, she got a little more personal with fans by revealing that the issue with her throat, which forced her to cancel a few shows back in 2008, was a lot more serious than she was letting on.
Cameras followed her as she visited Dr. Gwen Korovin, the "throat specialist to the stars," in an attempt to get to the bottom of the problem.
Dion did not really publicly discuss her throat problem for a while, so fans assumed she was on the mend. It wasn't until a few years later, in 2014, that the singer's reps revealed that she would taking time off from her Las Vegas residency and Asia tour to focus on her family as well as her illness.
"Celine has also been fighting an illness that has caused inflammation in her throat muscles, and has not been able to perform any of her scheduled shows in Las Vegas since her last show on July 29. She has still not recovered from this condition," read the statement.
Unfortunately, that wouldn't be the last time problems with her health would force her to take a break from performing.
Earlier this year, the "My Heart Will Go On" singer was forced to cancel more shows in order to recover from a "lingering cold."
While it's possible that Dion was indeed fighting a cold, it turns out that there is more to her condition that was not made public, until now.
