Celine Dion's husband, René Angélil, has died of throat cancer at age 73, his rep tells People in a statement. Angélil, who fought three bouts with cancer, died Thursday at his home in Las Vegas. He leaves behind three adult children from a previous relationship, as well as a 14-year-old son and 5-year-old twin boys with Dion. Dion, who returned to Las Vegas for a run of shows last year, shared her husband's last wishes in August. (More Celine Dion stories.)
