CELINE DION AND RENE ANGELIL Age difference: 26 years
Celine Dion was just 12 years old when music promoter Rene Angelil took the reins of her budding singing career. Ten years later, the singer realised that she had fallen in love with her twice-divorced manager, deciding to express her love with a kiss after the 1988 Eurovision contest. "He was the man I wanted," says Celine of her now-husband. "I didn't want a younger man, I wanted him. And I only wanted to be his."
