The photo was taken in far back in 1982, with 14-yr-old Celine pictured among other friends as well as Angelil.

The mother-of-3 had been discovered by twice divorced Angelil at age 12, when he had seen her talent and had taken her on, becoming her mentor/manager.

News reports had revealed that Angelil had mortgaged his home in 1981 to fund her first record, 'La Voix du bon dieu'.

The pair had later made their relationship public in 1993, before getting married the following year.
