Celine Dion's Brother On Death Bed Just Hours After Husband Rene's Death

Just hours after her husband Rene Angelil lost his battle with cancer, we have learned that Celine Dion's brother is now fighting for his life – and may only have hours left to live.

The singer's 59-year-old brother, Daniel, has been battling brain, tongue and throat cancer and loved ones believe he may not make it through another week, a rep for Celine confirmed to Access Hollywood on Friday.

On Thursday, Celine's husband Rene died after battling throat cancer. Rene was 73.

In the wake of Rene's death, Celine had already canceled this weekend's scheduled performances at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
