Celine Dion has put her career on hold to look after her ill husband Rene Angelil.

She has cancelled her Asia tour and postponed her Las Vegas residency due to Rene's ongoing health issues.

The singer released a statement saying it was "a very difficult and stressful time" after her husband had throat surgery in December to remove a cancerous tumour.

In the statement, she wrote: "I want to devote every ounce of my strength and energy to my husband's healing, and to do so, it's important for me to dedicate this time to him and to our children."

Rene was Celine's manager for 30 years before retiring this June.
