Celine Dion's Brother Is Dying -- on the Heels of Her Husband's Death

How much should one person have to deal with? Just one day after her husband died, it's been revealed that Celine Dion's brother is dying of terminal cancer as well. And the worst part is that he has just days or even hours left to live.

Daniel Dion, 59, is one of the Canadian superstar's 13 brothers and sisters. Despite the large number, all the siblings are close, and this is a devastating turn of events for Celine, 47. 

A source told PEOPLE magazine of Celine's brother's diagnosis, "It could be any day now ... No one knows how long he has. She had heard that he might pass on Tuesday but he seems to be holding on."

Celine is reportedly still at her home in Las Vegas, although she has cancelled her residency show at The Colosseum until at least February 23.

The insider revealed, "Celine is still in Vegas with her kids making plans for [her husband's] funeral ... It's a typical grieving process. There's moments of shed tears, moments of memories and laughter. She's grieving the loss of her husband."
