AceShowbiz - That's smooth! Celine Dion doesn't want to talk about her love life, and she knows exactly how to evade such personal questions. During a Q&A at Brown Shoes in Montreal, a reporter asked, "I wanted to ask you about your personal life. It's a whole new world for you, you're a single woman. How is life?"
Rocking a bright pink dress, Celine didn't miss a beat as she quipped back, "Are you asking me out?" The crowd broke into laughter and applauded because of her remark. The diva suddenly belted out Rihanna's hit song "Diamond" to top off her response.
The reporter was quite persistent, though. He attempted to ask her once more about her love life. "We going out or what?" Celine asked with a smile, to which he replied, "Are you free tonight?" She responded again with a song, rhyming the chorus of Tom Petty's "Free Fallin' ".
The singer later turned serious, saying that she is taking her sweet time to enjoy her life following the deaths of her husband Rene Angelil and brother Daniel Dion in January 2016. "I'm enjoying myself. I went through a lot," she shared. "At this time of my life, going back a few years back when it was so hard, I feel as though I can spread my wings... There is a force that takes over when you believe, and I'm a believer."
Speaking of Celine's love life, she has been romantically linked to her backup dancer Pepe Munoz as of late. "Meeting Pepe has put a pep in her step. He makes her feel beautiful, sexy and alive," a source previously said. "She never expected to feel this way again after Renee died. Their sexy dances on stage detonated a passion in Celine, and she's having fun and letting go of her inhibitions."
However, it looks like their relationship "is completely platonic," as Celine is not ready yet to be back into the dating game. "Now it is definitely too soon for me. I am definitely in love with him [Rene], married to him," she said in a recent interview. "He's the love of my life. It's very difficult for me to see myself with another person. The love I have for him. I live it everyday. And as a woman, we do have emotions and feelings that come and go. And it's always with him."
