Pop singer, Celine Dion has shot down rumors that she’s in a relationship with BFF Pepe Munoz. This she did by revealing that he’s gay.
The rumors were fuelled by the 51-year-old singer for spending a lot of time with Pepe over the past couple years. He has been like a support system for her since the death of her husband Rene Angelil.
According to Celine Dion, the rumors about a relationship with him make her laugh.
“At first, I felt for him quite a bit… Pepe is gay, and at first I think some people did not know that,” she told Extra .
“The thing is that he’s my best friend and we dance together and he did so much for me and even just holding my hand… it’s something that I haven’t had for a long time… A hug from a 6′ 3″ man, it was wonderful… and people really thought there was a romance going on,” she added. “He did so much for me, for my mental health, my spirituality, my strength… my inner strength.”
