I reported Monday that as Caesars Palace headliner superstar Celine Dion puts her life in order after the death last month of her husband and manager Rene Angelil, she’d lopped $30 million off the sales price of her waterside estate on Jupiter Island in Florida that she wants to sell quickly.
Now comes word that her $25.5 million castle on a private island in the Montreal River in Quebec has been sold.
Sotheby’s international real estate confirmed that the three-level, six-bedroom and nine-bathroom French Normandy-styled chateau has been sold for only $4 million less than its 2013 asking price after languishing on the market for three years.
Celine and her family stays at their Lake Las Vegas home here when she performs at the Colosseum in Caesars. She returns next Tuesday.

Transport yourself to the opulent and excessive Roman Empire at Caesars Palace. But the ever-changing Caesars Palace is far from ancient. The hotel and casino is constantly raising the bar for what visitors can expect in a Vegas resort experience.
Caesars Palace features 3,348 rooms and suites in five towers, including the new luxury boutique Nobu Hotel and Restaurant, which opened Feb. 4, 2013, in the totally remodeled Centurian Tower. Caesars features 129,000 square feet of gaming space, including the Strip’s largest poker room and a 250-seat sports book. Other amenities include about two dozen restaurants, a four-level shopping mall, four pools, a spa, Pure and Poetry nightclubs and Pussycat Dolls.
Dining options include restaurants from world-renown chefs Guy Savoy, Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, Gordon Ramsay and, on Feb. 4, 2013, Nobu Matsuhisa.
You never know what characters you’ll run into at Caesars with regular performers like Jerry Seinfeld, Bette Midler, Elton John and maybe even the emperor himself.
