Céline Dion’s latest album Courage debuted at number one on the charts last week, but then it made Chart Data history by suffering the biggest fall ever. After one week at number one, Courage fell completely out of the top 100, and this has not gone over well with the legendary singer.
According to Page Six, Dion is “upset” about the album’s shocking slide out of the top spot.
“She’s upset. All hell has broken loose. The only reason she sold 100,000 was because of the whole bundle thing that labels do, but she only sold around 3,000 the second week,” revealed an insider.
The album’s disappointing performance is not the only problem going on with Dion, as numerous sources claim that her bestie Pepe Muñoz – who is also Dion’s creative director and back up dancer – has isolated the singer and successfully gotten rid of some of the senior members of her inner circle.
“Without [Dion’s late husband and manager] René around, no one knows what they’re doing. She is being controlled by a person who has told her that René was an old guy and she should live like she’s in her 20s. That’s her state of mind,” claimed the insider.
However, Dion’s team shut down those rumors this summer when they said that the so-called “sources” had “nothing better to do than to spread untrue gossip.”

When Dion launched her new album at Lips NYC Drag Queen Show & Palace Restaurant last month, she said that Courage was a long process that forced her to travel through different emotions.
Another source said that Dion is proud of the new album, and the singer is having so much success with it that it’s “mean to rehash these Pepe stories.” The insider said that Dion is living her best life, and she is out doing her best after something horrible happened to her.
“Her tour is doing great. She’s looking great and she is doing great. All the rest is bulls–t,” the insider said.
Celine Dion kicked off the North American leg of her latest tour on September 18th. And, according to Billboard Boxscore, she has grossed $33.2 million in the first 19 shows. Even if fans aren’t buying the album, they are definitely showing up to see Celine Dion in concert.
