The pop star's longtime partner and manager Rene Angelil passed away last week (ends17Jan16) after a battle with cancer, and his family and friends are due to gather on Friday (22Jan16) for a memorial service at the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal, Canada, where he married Celine in 1994.

Celine took a break from performing at Caesars Palace in Sin City to deal with the tragedy, and reports suggested she would be getting back to work on Saturday (23Jan16), just 24 hours after laying her husband to rest.

However, a representative for Caesars Palace has confirmed Celine will in fact be returning to the stage on 23 February (16).

The spokesperson tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "Celine was never confirmed to perform on Saturday. Elton John is currently performing... this weekend."
