Celine Dion's Manager/Husband Rene Angelil Quits as Her Manager

Rene Angelil may be giving up the day-to-day managing of Celine Dion's career but he's not going to be far away.

While Aldo Giampaolo will be Dion's new manager, Angelil and Dion will still make the big decisions when it comes to the pop superstar's career.

Giampaolo, the new CEO of Feeling Productions, insisted in an interview with The Canadian Press on Thursday that he's mainly going to be an administrator, handling the contracts and various requests that come in.

"It's going to allow Rene to step back a little from the little details," Giampaolo said.

Giampaolo will certainly offer his opinions and advice but he's there mainly to carry out the power couple's wishes.

"The bottom line is that I'll do what they want," Giampaolo said. "This is Celine's career, it's what they've built together . . . . Rene is always present but not on a daily basis."

Angelil's main job will be concentrating on his recovery from a second bout with throat cancer. A cancerous tumour was removed on Dec. 23 and he is in remission.

However, turning over the day-to-day management is something the couple, who married in 1994, have been considering for several years.

Giampaolo, who has been friends with Angelil for more than two decades, said he was first approached five years ago. At that point it was only a possible plan that would be used if Angelil was unable to continue as her manager.

"The (daily tasks) around Celine are just huge," Giampaolo said. "She's a worldwide artist. It's a machine."

There is no shortage of things to take care of, he adds reports Times Colonist.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
