Workaholic Celine Dion might think she's carrying out her late husband Rene Angelil's wishes by getting back up on stage, but insiders say she's absolutely exhausted and her recent drastic weight loss is a direct result of her taking on way too much.
"Celine's shed at least seven pounds from her already thin frame and she's struggling to keep going," one concerned friend exclusively told RadarOnline.com.
"Her schedule is completely insane, but Celine keeps going because in her mind 'It's what Rene would have wanted,'" explained the pal, who insisted the 48-year-old singer "is very wrong" in her belief.
"Rene was her manager and always kept her workaholic tendencies under control — he would never have approved of her current workload," said the friend.
"She's losing too much weight too quickly and she really needs some rest and recuperation," added the friend. "It's been a tough year and throwing herself into work is only going to make it harder."
As Radar reported, Angelil passed away at age 73 last January after a brave and long battle with cancer.
