Celine Dion ‘can barely move’ and is in an enormous amount of pain due to her condition.

The ‘My Heart Will Go On’ singer, 55, is known for hits such as ‘The Power Of Love’ and ‘All by Myself’ – which has earnt her the title of the ‘Queen of Power Ballards’.

The ‘I’m Alive’ artist has sold over 220 million albums worldwide across a 43-year career and has won countless awards – including six Grammy Awards and two Academy Awards for Best Original Song.

Dion had been touring since 2019 but sadly had to cancel her European dates due to a battle with an incurable health condition.

Watch as Celine Dion tearfully reveals her diagnosis to fans below…

In a heartbreaking Instagram post from December last year, the former Eurovision winner revealed that she has been diagnosed with Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS).

Dion said in the video: “I’ve been dealing with problems with my health for a long time and it’s been really difficult for me to face my challenges and to talk about everything that I’ve been going through.”

“Unfortunately, these spasms affect every aspect of my daily life, sometimes causing difficulties when I walk and not allowing me to use my vocal cords to sing the way I’m used to.”

SPS is a rare neurological disorder which has features of an autoimmune disease.

Over time, it locks the body into rigid positions and can lead to abnormal postures – leaving a person hunched over and stiffened.

Eventually, the condition can leave a person unable to walk or talk.

Although there are treatments to slow down its progress, SPS is currently incurable.

Now sources close to the ‘It’s All Coming Back To Me’ artist believe that Dion will never tour again due to her condition getting worse.

Speaking to Radar Online, an alleged source says that Dion ‘can barely move’.

They claim: “Celine is in an enormous amount of pain.

“She has the best medical team money can buy but things aren’t looking good.

“Her disease is incurable. And as hard she’s worked at it with doctors and therapists, she simply isn’t getting better.”

It has also been reported that Dion has sold off her Las Vegas mansion – which is reportedly worth $30 million – so she can return to Canada, where she is spending time with her family.

The source adds that she has an extremely supportive family during her ‘time of personal crisis’.
