Fact Check: NO Evidence Celine Dion Was 'Severely Injured By Vaxxxine' Unsaid

Was singer Celine Dion "severely injured by [the COVID-19] vaxxxine"? No, that's not true: A news release posted on celinedion.com does not specify a diagnosis for the severe muscle spasms that she reports are preventing her from performing. It is reported that a family member of Dion's says that her health problems are due to the slope of the stage on which she was to perform -- not a coronavirus vaccination shot.

The BitChute video (archived here) was published on October 24, 2021. Titled "CELINE DION SEVERELY INJURED BY VAXXXINE," the video displays the highlighting of purported statements from various online documents. The text in the caption beneath the video opened:

Celine Dion, a Canadian born singer with more than 200-million album sales, has cancelled her tour because she is experiencing "severe and persistent muscle spasms." That sounds like a vaxxxine injury, to me.

Users on social media only saw this title, description and thumbnail:

Celine Dion SEVERELY INJURED BY VAXXXINE

Celine Dion, a Canadian born singer with more than 200-million album sales, has cancelled her tour because she is experiencing "severe and persistent muscle spasms." That sounds like a vaxxxine injury, to me. I'm putting that one down for team anti-...

In an October 19, 2021, tweet, Celine Dion announced the cancellation of her Las Vegas show due to "unforeseen medical symptoms."

On the singer's official website, a news release, published the same day, cited "severe and persistent" muscle spasms as the symptoms she has been experiencing, which has caused her to delay the Las Vegas show. However, it does not specify a diagnosis or cause of injury pertaining to muscle spasms. It reads:

Celine has been experiencing severe and persistent muscle spasms which are preventing her from performing. Her medical team continues to evaluate and treat her. However, the symptoms she is experiencing are prohibiting her from participating in the ongoing rehearsals for the new show

On October 22, 2021, Good Morning America reports a translated statement given by Claudette Dion, the sister of Celine Dion. Regarding whether or not the cancellation of the show in Las Vegas is due to a loss of voice, at 1:11 in the video, Dion states:

I don't believe so, no, she shared with me that the stage had a steep incline when she was performing- that would cause problems to her muscles, legs, and feet.
