Celine Dion's representative says Dion's brother has cancer and doesn't have long to live. Kim Jakwerth confirmed Friday reports of the prognosis of Dion's brother Daniel. Dion's husband, Rene Angelil, died Thursday after a long battle with throat cancer in the suburban Las Vegas home in Henderson he shared with Dion and their three children. Funeral plans have not been announced for Angelil. TMZ earlier reported that Dion's brother, 59, has brain, tongue, and throat cancer and had mere hours left to live. (More Celine Dion stories.)
