Does Celine Dion have a new love in her life? The 5-time Grammy winner has been making headlines with rumours of her dating a new “toyboy”.
The young man in question is Spanish dancer Pepe Munoz, aged 34. However, the 50-year-old legendary singer is adamant that she’s still single. The duo has come under scrutiny for often appearing in public together over the past 2 years.
In speaking with The Sun UK, Dion is determined to set the record straight. “The press said, ‘Oh my God, Rene just passed and now there’s another man’. Yeah, there’s another man in my life but not THE man in my life,” she clarified.
The A-lister’s late husband Rene Angelil passed away in 2016, leaving her with 3 sons, 18-year-old Rene-Charles and 8-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy. Dion admitted that the media attention hasn’t been easy on Munoz. “It was probably overwhelming for him at the beginning when we started working together because we were dancing together,” the songstress said.
“We’re friends, we’re best friends. Of course, we hug and hold hands and go out, so people see that,” Dion told the publication. “I mean, he’s a gentleman. He’s giving me his hand to go out.”
Do these rumours bother her though? “I don’t mind because he’s handsome and he’s my best friend,” she replied before declaring, “By the way, when I say, ‘I am single,’ please, leave me alone. Thanks.”
In other news, Billboard announced today (Thursday, 31st January) that Dion will be releasing her very own biopic and music-filled film, “The Power of Love”, on 2nd December 2020.
