Celine Dion revealed she’s been diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder known as stiff-person syndrome (SPS) in an emotional social media video on Thursday.
The Canadian hitmaker fought back tears as she told fans she’d been left with no choice but to cancel her upcoming European tour dates so she could concentrate on her health.
Dion apologized for taking so long to reach out to fans regarding the diagnosis, saying: “As you know I have always been an open book, and I wasn’t ready to say everything before, but I am ready now.
“I have been dealing with problems with my health for a long time, and it’s been really difficult for me to face these challenges and talk about everything I have been going through.”
