Celine Dion's team responds to accusations her BFF Pepe is controlling her originally appeared on goodmorningamerica.com
Earlier this week, a report surfaced claiming that Celine Dion's best friend, dancer Pepe Muñoz, was exerting too much control over her life and had "isolated" her to the extent that the only people around her now are him, her stylist and her hairdresser.
Well, now Dion's team has hit back at those reports, in the form of a letter addressed to Pepe.
The letter, posted on Dion's socials in both English and French, reads, "Dear Pepe, as the real members of Dion's 'inner circle,' we are saddened and disappointed by an untruthful story that surfaced in the media on Monday, quoting multiple sources who claim that they are part of the inner circle and that you have too much influence over her and are isolating her."
The letter continues, "These 'sources' have nothing better to do than to spread untrue gossip. Don't let it get you down...and keep up the great work. We love you!"
The letter is signed by 10 people, evidently proving that Dion's "inner circle" consists of many more people than simply Pepe, a hairdresser and a stylist. Dion herself hasn't commented on it.
That same "untruthful story" claimed that Dion is in love with Muñoz.
But in April, she told Extra TV, "Pepe is gay. And at first I think some people did not know that. The thing is that he's my best friend...he did so much for me, for my mental health, my spirituality, my strength."
