According to Page Six, Celine's friends fear that her “best pal,” backup dancer Pepe Muñoz has too much influence on her.
One source told Page Six:
“Pepe is like her boy toy who is really trying to take over. He’s isolating her and people are feeling it. She’s in love with this guy and listens to everything he’s saying. People go to him when they have questions. He’s fully taken over. The only people around her now [are] Pepe, the hairdresser and the stylist"
Multiple sources told Page Six that Pepe helped orchestrate the exit of some of Dion’s senior team, including former stylist Law Roach.
“It’s crazy. She knows he’s gay and is accepting of it. She needs someone close to her and she fell in love. He’s turned into a René type.”
