If Gala is to be believed, the twenty-year-old would indeed have distanced himself from his mother - to the point that he would have "almost cut ties" with her. It would even be to the "absent subscribers" for the singer, who suffers from a neurological pathology. According to the magazine, René-Charles intends to emancipate himself professionally and offer himself some distractions.

A 'source of concern'
A real "source of concern" for Celine Dion. Especially since the brother of twins Nelson and Eddy, 13, would have moved in with his ex-girlfriend Angelique Weckmann, met in 2016. "According to a source close to the singer, she thinks that the 22-year-old has a bad influence on her son... "who glands all day, films himself taking on the air of a bad boy and has no concrete project", we learned in the columns of Closer, May 19.
According to the publication, the young man would now devote his time to his rap productions and gambling. In December 2022, Closer also claimed that the twenty-year-old was spending "astronomical sums" online and in casinos. Especially since Angelique Weckmann is none other than the daughter of the owners of one of the most luxurious gaming establishments in the city. An addiction problem that had also experienced René-Charles' father, René Angélil.
With his independence, the young man would also allow himself significant expenses. According to the Canadian newspaper Soir Mag, René-Charles would lead "a privileged idle life", and squander his legacy. In particular, he would have acquired a Mercedes-Benz AMG class G63 at more than 300,000 euros. A purchase that we do not know if it was approved by Celine Dion, now far from her eldest son. "There were times when René-Charles did not want to be mom's pooch and had his love and personal adventures," Elisabeth Raynaud, the artist's biographer, told Public.
