Celine Dion knocks $30 million off Florida estate

Celine Dion has slashed $30 million (£21 million) off the asking price of her luxury Florida estate.
The superstar has been trying to offload the Jupiter Island property since 2013, when her husband and manager, Rene Angelil, was initially diagnosed with cancer.
The five-bedroom estate, which boasts its own waterpark, tennis court, and golf range, struggled to attract a buyer and now, following Rene’s passing in January (16), Celine is looking to expedite the sale process by cutting the price to $45.5 million (£32 million), reports TMZ.com.
The mother-of-three also sold off her house in Quebec, Canada last month (Feb16) for $25.5 million (£18 million) and is allegedly planning to settle full-time in Las Vegas, where she has had a residency show at the Caesars Palace resort since 2011.
Rene lost his battle with cancer on 14 January (16) and was laid to rest at the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal, where he wed Celine in 1984.
She took some time off to mourn his death, but returned to the Vegas stage on 23 February (16) in a show which was live streamed online for fans.
The emotional show began with a montage of family pictures and television appearances of Rene, along with a quote from Celine: “I understood that my career was in a way his masterpiece, his song, his symphony. The idea of leaving it unfinished would have hurt him terribly. I realised that if he ever left us, I would have to continue without him, for him.”
The My Heart Will Go On hitmaker then walked out onstage to a standing ovation and during her set, she vowed to always keep Rene close to her heart.
“Thank you,” the emotional star told fans. “Through my life, I only had highs from my husband who sat out here night after night. People thought that I was looking at him actually, but I didn’t need to because every time I close my eyes I felt Rene on stage with me whether he was seated in his seat right there, in the balcony, backstage or at home with the kids. He’s always been on stage with me. And nothing will ever change that.”
