On Thursday, superstar singer Celine Dion shared with the public that she has a “very rare neurological syndrome”, which then forced her to postpone her European concert tour dates.

The star, who is originally from Quebec, Canada, posted a video on her Instagram account in which she said that she has been facing health issues for an extended period of time.

“I was recently diagnosed with Stiff Person Syndrome, which is a very rare neurological disease,” she said.

Celine Dion stated that this disease, which gradually makes the muscles stiffer, caused her to have difficulty walking and singing the way she wanted.

“I regret to announce that I will not be able to complete my European tour in February,” she said, stressing that an “excellent team of doctors” is taking care of her health condition.

Dion’s European tour was supposed to restart at the end of February in the Czech Republic.

Dion did the first 52 concerts of her tour before Covid-19 hit in early 2020. Last January, she announced the cancellation of her North American concert dates due to health problems.
