Celine Dion’s family furious with Aline and Valérie Lemercier


Claudette Dion and her brother appeared upset in a Quebec talk show: “She took a nasty trip on the back of Celine’s life …”

Valerie Lemercier has always expressed his benevolence towards Celine Dion. But his astonishing and touching almost-biopic did not please the star’s family. Claudette and Michel Dion, two of the singer’s 13 brothers and sisters, were invited to Julie Snyder’s Quebec show, “La Semaine des 4 Julie” (see below). With tremolos in their voices, they expressed their indignation at the indirect representation that Valerie Lemercier made the Dion family in Aline. In particular the mother, who died last year, who would be incarnated on the screen in a deceptive way:

“My mother never spoke like that to René, and Céline never wanted anything“, Claudette Dion is offended, pointing to certain passages of the film. “We pass for a gang of grumpies. I know their vision (to the French) of the cabin in Canada. I’m sorry, but in Charlemagne (the hometown of Celine Dion), we did not have a cabin (…) We always say that we have never known misery because mum knew how to do everything and dad had three jobs! “

Visibly upset by all this, Claudette said “to grieve” and sums it up in a few scathing words: “I don’t recognize the language, I don’t recognize the family, I don’t recognize our roots …“And to conclude by tackling severely Valerie Lemercier : “She took a nasty trip on the back of Celine’s life …”

Aline was released in theaters on November 10 and is already approaching one million spectators.
