Celine Dion Stiff Person Syndrome ‘Almost’ Took Her Life, Reveals Hoda Kotb

Hoda Kotb previously disclosed the severity of Celine Dion stiff person syndrome.

Stiff person syndrome “almost took her life,” according to Celine Dion.

In the preview for their next interview, on the Thursday episode of Hoda and Jenna, Hoda Kotb said, “Celine Dion at some point, she is now much better, but at some point she almost died, which is something that she says.” It was a frightening period, Kotb, 59, said.

Kotb also talked about conducting an earlier-day Today Show interview with Dion on her fight with the uncommon autoimmune neurological condition.

“She was diagnosed with a terrible disease and at one point she wondered if she was going to make it, whether she was going to live through it,” Kotb said, alluding to the singer’s interview, during her NBC visit.

Additionally, Kotb disclosed, that Dion has been unable to perform live for years due to the condition.

“A lot of people are wondering what happened. What was wrong? Kotb asked, citing Dion’s revelations of the “possibility of a comeback” and how the illness impaired her voice.

It was an emotional interview, and we’ve missed her, Kotb added. “I know people are cheering her on, but we’ll see where she is on her return journey.”

During the conversation, Dion, 56, did sing for Kotb and, although she was reluctant to reveal how her voice sounds these days, she sounded “incredible.”

On Tuesday, June 11, the journalist and the My Heart Will Go On singer will release their full interview.
