MONTREAL – Pop singer 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.

Dion is one of the world’s most successful singers. The theme from “Titanic,” the smash “My Heart Will Go On,” has been her defining hit, and she has had other top songs that have sold millions of copies around the world.
