She’s not just a singer, she’s also a family woman during a tough time.
Celine Dion has been tasked with overseeing late husband Rene Angelil‘s vast estate, along with two other people — and she is in charge of managing quite a few assets from real estate to cash.
The Canadian singer now controls two estates — a $45 million Florida home, and a $25 million Quebec castle — both of which are currently up for sale.
Once those are sold, according to reports, $9 million of the money will go into a trust that is apparently for the couple’s three children.
The family held other properties, too, but Celine will retain ownership of those rather than sell them for the estate.
Rene left a will, according to legal docs, and in it he was very generous to all of his children, which include several young people from a prior marriage. He left homes to several of his kids, for one — nice!
Celine is also left with all of Rene’s personal effects, furniture, cars, clothing, jewelry, and other possessions, while most of her late husband’s money will go into yet another trust, aimed to provide for the couple’s family for years to come.
Blah, blah, blah, it’s all business talk, but the bottom line is this — it’s good to see Celine’s children are being cared for now and will be for a long time, and it’s welcome to see how smoothly this process is going, even if it’s tough after Rene’s death.
