Just two days after her husband, René Angélil, succumbed to cancer, Celine Dion's brother, Daniel, has died. He was 59.
Celine's rep confirmed the news to ET on Saturday. Daniel -- who was one of Celine's 13 siblings -- passed away in Montreal after fighting brain, tongue and throat cancer.

On Friday, Celine's rep confirmed that Daniel was fighting a serious battle with cancer, and Celine and Daniel's sister, Claudette, told The Journal of Montrealthat Daniel only had "a matter of days or hours" to live.
After the family learned Daniel was dying, they gathered by his bedside.

It has been an extremely difficult week for Celine, as René died on Thursday after his own battle with throat cancer, as ET previously reported.
Celine has already canceled her upcoming Las Vegas shows on Jan. 16 and Jan. 17 following René's death.
So sorry for both of her losses. Praying for her and her family.
