She has not spoken on French television since the announcement of her illness in December 2022. This Sunday, June 16, TF1 is broadcasting an exceptional interview with Céline Dion during the 8 p.m. television news. It is Anne-Claire Coudray who was able to meet and interview the star for several minutes in Las Vegas, during a documentary event which will be dedicated to him on June 25 on Amazon Prime Video.

The journalist spoke Friday to France Info. She assures that the singer, who suffers from stiff man syndrome, will “much better than in the documentary”, which she was able to see upstream. She believes that Celine Dion needed “to explain how she had lied, how she had lied to herself, lied to her public for more than fifteen years, with this illness which was beginning to appear and which it took her time to identify.”

She “regained control over her body”

Anne-Claire Coudray explains to our colleagues that she “discovered a woman who has regained control over her body, who is doing much better. We must work against this body which contracts”. She also talks about her crises, which she describes “quite impressive”.

During this interview, promises TF1, the Canadian star opens up “open heart” and explains not having had “no choice but to leave the stage because my vocal cords have always led the way. I had no choice, the disease took control of my vocal cords and my entire body, from head to toe. I said to myself: I don’t want my children to be afraid”.

Stiff person syndrome (SPS) is a rare neurological disorder with features of an autoimmune disease. It is characterized by fluctuating muscular rigidity of the trunk and limbs and increased sensitivity to stimuli such as noise, touch and emotional distress, which can trigger muscle spasms.

Abnormal postures

Abnormal postures, often hunched and stiff, are characteristic of this disorder, as specified by the National Institute of Neurological Diseases. Affected people are sometimes too disabled to walk or move around, or are afraid to leave their homes because street noises, such as the sound of a horn, can trigger spasms and falls.
