The French actress, who played a fictional double of the Quebec diva in Aline, says she is concerned about repeated cancellations of concerts.
Very convincing Valérie Lemercier in the role of a fictional double of Celine Dion in Aline, – a film she also directed – no longer hides her concern at the apparent fragility of the Quebec diva’s state of health. On France Inter, the actress did not conceal that she was concerned about the long artistic and media disappearance of the Canadian star. “We haven’t heard from, nobody’s heard from for two years, we haven’t seen her face, she canceled dates… I have the impression that things aren’t going very well, believes Valérie Lemercier. I hope it will get better. But I think she is in other spheres. And I hope that one day she will see my film.»
It must be said that the announcement of the cancellation of his tour on October 19, 2021 published via Instagram, almost five months ago, left these millions of admirers scattered around the world in a state of amazement. “I am heartbroken by this situation. My team and I have been working on our new show for 8 months and not being able to take the stage in November saddens me beyond words, explained the singer. I feel terrible for letting them down, and I’m especially sorry to disappoint all the fans who had planned to come to Las Vegas. Now I have to focus on my health to get better quickly… I want to get out of this as soon as possible.»

Since Celine Dion is walled in silence. Only a few relatives sometimes give very short news of her, certainly with the intention of reassuring the fans. Thus his sister Claudette and his brother Michel let filter on November 23, on a Quebec television channel, some snippets of information more sibylline than reassuring. “She is fine ! She’s just recovering from her cramps. There are people who take care of it. Do not worry. She will be back for sure…»
Since then, with the exception of a very short message from Celine Dion, on December 21, paying tribute to two of her artist friends who died a few days earlier, the voice so loved by the diva has fallen silent… and this silence is deafening.
