According to a report by the AFP, the talent agency of Dion has denied the claims and said that the report was “absolutely false.”

Also, there is no legitimate report from CNN that the singer has died.

The original video of the CNN New Day Report discussed the passing of famous American celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain in June 2018.

On Wednesday, a video promotion for her new album called “Courage” was posted on her official Instagram account.

Céline Marie Claudette Dion was born on March 30, 1968. She became popular for her hit single “My Heart Will Go On” which was used as the soundtrack of the hit film “Titanic.”

In July 2018, Dion had her first-ever concert in the Philippines at the Mall of Asia Arena.
