Truth : Celine Dion Did Not Get Stiff Person Syndrome From Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created or propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Celine Dion Did Not Get Stiff Person Syndrome From Vaccine!

Let me just start by pointing out that Celine Dion most definitely did not develop Stiff Person Syndrome from the COVID-19 vaccine… because she had been suffering from it for over a decade!

Céline Dion (born Céline Marie Claudette Dion on 30 March, 1968) announced in an emotional video on 8 December 2022, that she had been struggling with health issues for a long time. In fact, she first developed signs and symptoms of Stiff Person Syndrome more than 14 years earlier!

In a 23 May 2024 interview with Vogue, Céline Dion shared how she first noticed symptoms of the rare disorder. It was 2008 and Dion was on her “Taking Chances World” tour, when she shared, “quite rapidly, I was having difficulty controlling my voice“.

Then, during her Las Vegas residency and five more tours, she noticed her muscles stiffening and she eventually needed support while walking.

In a 11 June 2024 interview with Hoda Kotb on the Today show, Celine Dion also revealed that she ignored her condition to care for her ailing husband, who was suffering from throat cancer, as well as her family. She also tried to hide her condition from her family, but eventually, her symptoms became too much to ignore:

My husband as well was fighting for his own life. I had to raise my kids, I had to hide. I had to try to be a hero.

Feeling my body leaving me, holding on to my own dreams… I could not do this anymore. Lying for me, the burden was too much. Lying to the people who got me where I am today, I could not do it anymore.

It was only when the COVID-19 pandemic hit that Céline Dion was forced to slow down her pace, and it gave her time to finally get some answers.

When the pandemic arrived, I said to myself, the universe makes no mistakes, and I will take this time — this opportunity — to search.

After additional testing, her doctors finally diagnosed her with Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS) – a rare and incurable neurological disorder with features of an autoimmune disease.

Her symptoms became so “severe and persistent” that on 19 October 2021, she delayed her Las Vegas residency. Then on 15 January 2022, she was forced to cancel the US and Canadian concerts from 9 March to 22 April 2022.

To be clear – Celine Dion first noticed symptoms of Stiff Person Syndrome more than 11 years before the COVID-19 pandemic, and more than 13 years before COVID-19 vaccines became widely available. Her condition also progressively deteriorated years before the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccines.

So she definitely did not develop Stiff Person Syndrome from the COVID-19 vaccine, and neither did the COVID-19 vaccine exacerbate her condition.

Fact #2 : COVID-19 Vaccines Do Not Cause Stiff Person Syndrome

Many anti-vaccination activists are pointing out that Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS) is one of the 1,291 Adverse Events of Special Interest (AESI) found in 9 pages of a Pfizer document that was released by the FDA.

As I explained back in March 2022, the “List of Adverse Events of Special Interest” (AESI) is NOT a list of side effects caused by the Pfizer mRNA vaccine. Rather, that was a list of 1,291 potential adverse events that Pfizer was specifically looking for when vaccinated people send in their reports through VAERS or the Yellow Card systems.

Just because Stiff Person Syndrome is in the AESI list does not mean the vaccine causes it. It is just one of the many adverse events Pfizer wanted their post-authorisation safety teams to look out for. To be clear – there is no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can possibly cause Stiff Person Syndrome.

Fact #3 : AESI List Is Generic + Includes Irrelevant Adverse Events

While anti-vaccination activists keep insisting that the AESI list is a list of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine side effects, that’s nonsense. The AESI list is generic and not specific to the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, because it was determined before clinical trials even began!

That’s why the AESI list includes diseases caused by other viruses – Herpes, MERS, Varicella; as well as “exposure to SARS-CoV-2” and other “communicable disease”.

The list also included manufacturing and lab test issues, like “Manufacturing laboratory analytical testing issue, Manufacturing materials issue, Manufacturing production issue“. Even product supply issues were included – “Product availability issue, Product distribution issue, Product supply issue“.

They are obviously not vaccine side effects, nor related in any way to the performance or safety of the vaccine.

Claim : Celine Dion Just Died Suddenly In Hospital!

People are sharing YouTube and TikTok videos claiming that Celine Dion just died in a hospital from Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS), or after a tragic car / plane crash, with titles like :

30 minutes ago, R.I.P. Celine Dion (†55) Died on the way to the hospital, Farewell in tears

1 Hour Ago / R.I.P Celine Dion Died In France / Fans send their condolences to the singer

Truth : Celine Dion Did Not Die Suddenly In Hospital!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by people to generate income from page views and YouTube advertising, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Legitimate Media Outlet Reported Her Death

These YouTube videos have been circulating for weeks and months, but people don’t seem to notice that no legitimate media has reported her death or car accident!

When Celine Dion announced that she was suffering from Stiff Person Syndrome, the media breathlessly reported it around the globe.

Celine Dion is not just a famous singer. She is a national treasure in Canada, and a music legend. If she fell and broke a nail, you can be sure that celebrity blogs would have excitedly reported it, if not the mainstream media.

Yet, no legitimate media outlet or even a celebrity blog reported that Celine Dion was involved in any car or plane crash, much less died in a hospital of a “dangerous, incurable disease”. That’s because it never happened!

Fact #2 : Celine Dion Is Still Alive!

The truth is – Celine Dion (born Céline Marie Claudette Dion on 30 March, 1968) is very much still alive, as of Monday, 24 June 2024! Of course, you guys want “proof of life”, right?

Well, just last week, Celine Dion appeared at a screening of her documentary – I Am: Celine Dion in New York City on Monday, 17 June 2024. She looked well, wearing a silky white blouse top and matching maxi skirt, as she posed as the screening.

Needless to say – Celine Dion is very much still alive. She doesn’t even need to use a wheelchair, even though she is still suffering from Stiff Person Syndrome!

Recommended : Was Celine Dion Disabled By Vaccine Side Effect?!

Fact #3 : Celine Dion Death Photos Were Edited

I analysed the photos used in these videos, and traced the origin of two examples used in many of these videos.

This is a pretty good Photoshop effort, although you can see how Celine Dion’s dark brown hair suddenly became grey hair. And of course, you have to wonder why Celine Dion would still has her makeup on!

The truth is the fake news created edited the photo of Jan Key – a 65 year-old lady from Kalamazoo, Michigan, who was hit by a car on November 21, 2019.

The photo was taken by her daughter, Kitty Jenkins, on November 26, after Jan Key underwent a second surgery for her broken arm and collarbone. She underwent emergency surgery five days ago to treat her broken leg.

This photo, on the other hand, is a pretty bad Photoshop edit of a photo taken at the August 2018 funeral of Oliver Dragojević – a famous Croatian singer and composer.

To make it look like a Celine Dion funeral, the fake news creator added Lady Gaga appearing to cry, and unbelievably – René Angélil was edited in, with a portrait of Celine Dion magically floating in front of him.

For those who are not aware, René Angélil was Celine Dion’s manager who eventually married her on December 17, 1994. The only problem is – René Angélil died many years ago – on January 14, 2016 from throat cancer!

Recommended : Did Justin Bieber Just Die In High Speed Car Crash?!

But I would like to give a special Bad Photoshop award to the fake news creator who came up with this gem.

Not only did he/she use the visage of a smiling Celine Dion, it was stitched on so badly, it’s really, REALLY funny!

Celine Dion, who was supposed to be dying in hospital from a terrible car accident, not only has both her eyes open and smiling, it looked the accident smashed her face sideways!

What a terrible, terrible Photoshop edit! If you are going to cheat people, at least put in some effort!

Fact #4 : Celine Dion Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Celine Dion death hoax is, sadly, also being driven by a fake fact check article by the MediaMass Project, which keeps “updating” the dates in their fake fact check article:

News of singer Céline Dion’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the June 2024 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Thankfully, the singer best known for hit songs like S’il suffisait d’aimer, My Heart Will Go On or Pour que tu m’aimes encore is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Celine Dion Facebook page is false. There is no such Facebook page. It is their standard fake fact check spiel for fake celebrity deaths.

The statement from Celine Dion’s unnamed rep confirming that she is not dead is exactly the same as statements from other reps of celebrities MediaMass claimed were victims of death hoaxes, like Angelina Jolie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barry Gibb, Brad Pitt, Bruce Willis, Clint Eastwood, Cristiano Ronaldo, Dolly Parton, Harrison Ford, Justine Bieber, Lionel Messi, Lucy LiuMadonna, Melanie Laurent, Mike Tyson, Morgan Freeman, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Pattinson, Simon Cowell, Sylvester Stallone, Taylor Swift, Tom Cruise, and Tom Hanks.

She joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. She’s still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet.

Hidden in the description page for the MediaMass Project is a disclaimer that they are a “satire” website. That’s the usual “cover” for websites peddling fake news.

Regardless of their reasons, anything posted by MediaMass.net must be considered as fake news, until proven otherwise.

Truth : Celine Dion Did Not Attend Her Son’s Wedding In A Wheelchair!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created to go viral on TikTok and other social media platforms, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Celine Dion Revealed Her Diagnosis In December 2022

First, let’s start with a quick recap on Celine Dion’s recent health problems.

Celine Dion (born Céline Marie Claudette Dion on 30 March, 1968) announced in an emotional video on 8 December 2022, that she had been struggling with health issues for a long time.

She did not mention how long ago she started experiencing muscle spasms, but they became so “severe and persistent” that on 19 October 2021, she delayed her Las Vegas residency. Then on 15 January 2022, she was forced to cancel the US and Canadian concerts from 9 March to 22 April 2022.

It was only recently that the muscle spasms Celine Dion was suffering from was diagnosed as Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS) – a rare neurological disorder with features of an autoimmune disease.

I’ve been dealing with problems with my health for a long time. And it’s been really difficult for me to face these challenges and to talk about everything that I’ve been going through.

Recently I’ve been diagnosed with a very rare neurological disorder called Stiff Person Syndrome which affects something like one-in-a-million people.

While we’re still learning about this rare condition, we now know this is what’s been causing all of the spasms I’ve been having.

Unfortunately, these spasms affect every aspect of my daily life, sometimes causing difficulties when I walk and not allowing me to use my vocal cords to sing the way I’m used to.

Fact #2 : That Was Kathy Poirier, Not Celine Dion

The lady in the wheelchair was not Celine Dion, but a 55 year-old mother called Kathy Poirier from Florida.

Kathy Poirier suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), which is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. It is a progressive nervous system disease that causes a loss of muscle control.

When her 28 year-old son, Zak Poirier, married Anja d’Adesky, 27, on 9 April 2022, she had already lost the ability to walk, and arrived in a wheelchair.

Kathy Poirier and her sons

Fact #3 : Kathy Poirier Danced With Her Son

The viral TikTok video was edited to show Celine Dion (really Kathy Poirier) being lifted to hug her son who tears up, before she is placed back on her wheelchair.

In the real video, Kathy actually danced with her son on his wedding day! In his now-deleted Instagram post, Zak explained:

My Mom was diagnosed with ALS shortly before I graduated law school. Since that time, I’ve watched her bravely fight her diagnosis and challenge the odds against her.

Despite not being able to stand on her own, my Mom and I shared a dance at my wedding. She inspires me every day to be humble, kind and selfless. Love you Mom.

On that day, Zak and his two brothers escorted her to the dance floor for the mother-son dance. The three brothers then lifted her off the wheelchair.

With his brothers holding her upright, Kathy Poirier was able to dance with Zak that day. Her sons then lowered her back onto her wheelchair while their guests gave them a standing ovation.

Their wedding planner, Root to Stems also posted a video on Instagram, which went viral last year.

Fact #5 : Celine Dion Can Still Stand + Walk

Just to be clear, Celine Dion is not suffering from ALS, but from SPS – Stiff Person Syndrome.

As of April 2023, Celine Dion is able to stand and walk on her own, as well as sing and act. This is obvious from the posts (example) she made to promote her movie with Priyanka Chopra and Sam Heughan – Love Again.

Did Celine Dion Cancel Tour After Vaccine Injury?!

Did Celine Dion cancel her Courage World Tour after getting injured by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Celine Dion Cancels Tour After Vaccine Injury!

Right after Celine Dion announced that she was cancelling her Courage World Tour, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that legendary Canadian singer was injured by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Celine Dion is now suffering from Stiff Person Syndrome.. A side effect of the “vaccines”. She allowed only vaxxed people into her concerts.  Karma’s a bitch.

Celine Dion Reveals Vaccine Has Left Her Paralysed and Brain Damaged

Canadian pop icon Celine Dion has revealed that she has been left paralysed and suffering from a rare brain disease following the Covid-19 vaccination.

Truth : Celine Dion Did Not Cancel Tour After Vaccine Injury!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Celine Dion Postponed, Then Cancelled Her Tour

First, here’s some context on what’s going on with Celine Dion.

On 8 December 2022, Celine Dion publicly shared that she was diagnosed with the disorder known as Stiff Person Syndrome (Moersch-Woltman syndrome), and postponed her Spring 2023 shows to 2024, and cancelled eight of her summer 2023 shows.

On Friday, 26 May 2023, Celine Dion announced on Instagram that she was cancelling the Courage World Tour “until [she’s] really ready to be back on stage again“.

I’m so sorry to disappoint all of you once again. I’m working really hard to build back my strength, but touring can be very difficult even when you’re 100%.

It’s not fair to you to keep postponing the shows, and even though it breaks my heart, it’s best that we cancel everything now until I’m really ready to be back on stage again.

I want you all to know, I’m not giving up… and I can’t wait to see you again!” – Celine xx…

Fact #2 : Celine Dion Had Been Suffering For A Long Time

Celine Dion (born Céline Marie Claudette Dion on 30 March, 1968) shared that she had been having problems with her health “for a long time”.

While she did not mention how long ago she started experiencing muscle spasms, they became so “severe and persistent” that on 19 October 2021, she delayed her Las Vegas residency. Then on 15 January 2022, she was forced to cancel the US and Canadian concerts from 9 March to 22 April 2022.

It was only in December 2022 that Celine Dion was finally diagnosed with Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS) – a rare neurological disorder with features of an autoimmune disease. It is also known as Moersch-Woltman syndrome.

I’ve been dealing with problems with my health for a long time. And it’s been really difficult for me to face these challenges and to talk about everything that I’ve been going through.

Unfortunately, these spasms affect every aspect of my daily life, sometimes causing difficulties when I walk and not allowing me to use my vocal cords to sing the way I’m used to.

Read more : Was Celine Dion Disabled By Vaccine Side Effect?!

Fact #3 : COVID-19 Vaccines Do Not Cause Stiff Person Syndrome

Many anti-vaccination activists are pointing out that Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS) is one of the 1,291 Adverse Events of Special Interest (AESI) found in 9 pages of a Pfizer document that was released by the FDA.

As I explained back in March 2022, the “List of Adverse Events of Special Interest” (AESI) is NOT a list of side effects caused by the Pfizer mRNA vaccine.

Rather, that was a list of 1,291 potential adverse events that Pfizer was specifically looking for when vaccinated people send in their reports through VAERS or the Yellow Card systems.

Just because Stiff Person Syndrome is in the AESI list does not mean the vaccine causes it. It is just one of the many adverse events Pfizer wanted their post-authorisation safety teams to look out for.

To be clear – there is no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can possibly cause Stiff Person Syndrome.

Fact #4 : Celine Dion Did Not Say COVID-19 Injured Her

The People’s Voice, formerly known as Daily Expose / The Expose, claimed that Celine Dion revealed that she was left paralysed and is suffering from a brain disease caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

As far as we can tell – Celine Dion has never mentioned the COVID-19 vaccine, much less claim that it caused her Stiff Person Syndrome, or paralysis of any kind.

In fact, The People’s Voice / Daily Expose / The Expose did not provide any evidence that Celine Dion actually said that.

Fact #5 : Unknown If Celine Dion Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Anti-vaccination activists claim that Celine Dion was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19. However, there is no evidence of that, as she never publicly revealed her vaccination status.

For all we know – she may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States where she lives, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless we know her COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that she was disabled by the COVID-19 vaccine is lying to you.

Fact #6 : The People’s Voice Is A Notorious Fake News Website

The People’s Voice is the new name for Daily Expose, which was established as The Expose in November 2020 by Jonathan Allen-Walker – a mechanic from Lincolnshire.

Like Real Raw News and NewsPunch, The People’s Voice / Daily Expose / The Expose is a FAKE NEWS website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so it has to keep changing its name. Here are some of its fake stories that I personally debunked earlier:

Was Celine Dion Disabled By Vaccine Side Effect?!

Was Celine Dion disabled by a known COVID-19 vaccine side effect called Stiff People Syndrome?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Celine Dion Was Disabled By Known Vaccine Side Effect!

Right after Celine Dion announced that she was suffering from a rare condition called Stiff People Syndrome, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that Canadian singer was a victim of the COVID-19 vaccine!

Celine Dion was an enthusiastic advocate for Covid “vaccines” but “stiff person syndrome” is a noted adverse reaction to these jabs. I am not saying it’s what caused her problem but it does seem quite the coincidence don’t you think?

Celine Dion was diagnosed with Stiff Person Syndrome and what do you know, it’s on page 8 of Pfizers adverse events from the covid vaccine. I don’t know if she’s vaccinated or not #NEWS #Twitter #FYP #BREAKING #NewsBreak #NEW #trend #Trending #Newsfile #BreakingNews

Even the infamous anti-vaxxer who is fully-vaccinated, Steve Kirsch, claimed that Celine Dion got her stiff person syndrome from the vaccine.

Celine Dion finally revealed she has stiff person syndrome, which is so rare, it’s only found in 1 in a million people. Did she just get unlucky? Nope. She got vaccinated.

Pfizer knew about this potential side effect likely before Celine Dion was vaccinated, but they have no duty to disclose that because hey, it’s a safe and effective vaccine with only mild side effects. The FDA simply looks the other way for safety issues. That’s the way science is done.

Pfizer knew about SPS in February 2021 and the FDA knew about it on Aprile 2021. But the FDA isn’t going to warn anyone about all these side effects because that would create vaccine hesitancy.

Thanks to Amy Kelly of dailyclout.io, we know that SPS was reported in Pfizer’s postmarketing documents on page 37, which is also page 8 of Appendix 1. Being in this document indicates that Pfizer was aware of it no later than 2/28/21, and the FDA knew about it no later than April 2021.

So the FDA and Pfizer clearly know and told the public nothing. They aren’t liable for any damages even if they didn’t give anyone informed consent by revealing all the side effects.

I don’t know if Celine got the Pfizer vaccine or not, but the side effect profile of the other vaccines is even worse, so my arguments apply no matter what vaccine Celine got.

Truth : Celine Dion Was Not Disabled By Known Vaccine Side Effect!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

The AESI list is generic and not specific to the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, because it was determined before clinical trials even began!
