Celine is being supported by her family during this difficult time 

Many couldn't believe that it had been a quarter of a decade since it's release and were astounded at the post. 

At the beginning of December, Celine shared an emotional video with her fans on social media where she spoke out for the first time about her health battle with Stiff Person Syndrome. She opened up about this condition while tearfully canceling and postponing numerous tour dates due to "persistent muscle spasms," over the past year, which are a result of the condition.

She also said: "I've been dealing with problems with my health for a long time, and it's been really difficult for me to face these challenges and to talk about everything that I've been going through…It hurts me to tell you that I won’t be ready to restart my tour in Europe in February."

Celine has been open about her health struggles

Her sister, Claudette Dion, had previously opened up about the star's health back in November 2021.

Talking to French magazine, Voici, she said: "What's happening to her is sad. But it's not serious, otherwise she would have told me. Celine always confides in me and asks for advice when something is wrong. I know she's in good spirits."

When she first revealed that she had medical problems affecting her performance she said she was undergoing treatment for it - and she continues to do so.

In January 2022, she then canceled the North American leg of her Courage world tour for the same reason, saying: "I was really hoping that I'd be good to go by now, but I suppose I just have to be more patient and follow the regimen that my doctors are prescribing."
