Celine Dion speaks on rumors about Pepe Munoz.

1. He has multiple talents.

Munoz can be found participating in various activities on his Instagram page. He is most known for his role as a back-up dancer for Celine Dion. The dancer posts pictures about his boss often, complimenting her grace and style. Speaking of style, Munoz is also a stylist. He started by making sketches of John Galiano and Dior collections and would post his sketches on his Instagram page. Shortly after he began dancing for Dion, one of her staff saw his sketches and loved them. That is how he began accompanying Dion to fashion shows all over the world, where he could be seen sketching designs. He makes sure her style never ages.

When he isn't dancing or styling for Dion, he spends some time modeling. His Instagram page shows that he has been photographed by famous photographers such as Guillaume Thomas and Frederic Monceau

2. Best friends with Celine Dion

Munoz is spotted out with Dion all the time. Dion stated "We're friends, we're best friends. Of course, we hug and we hold hands and we go out." Both Munoz and Dion have stressed that they are just friends and nothing more, but still the rumors of them having a romantic relationship persisted. Dion stated that she did not mind this, but that not everything that seems romantic is. "Let's not mix everything," she adds. "I don't mind because he's handsome and he's my best friend."

3. Rumored to be dating Celine Dion

The rumors of the two friends first began in January 2019 after Munoz and Dion were seen at Paris Fashion Week together. They were also spotted together a few times after that and were described as looking cheery as they walked side by side. The fact that they could be seen holding hands definitely didn't help persuade people that the two weren't romantically involved. Dion told The Sun "I mean, he’s a gentleman. He’s giving me his hand to go out.”

In another interview with Dan Wootton, Dion expressed how uncomfortable it was for Munoz to be working with her and having false rumors spread about their relationship. 

“It was probably overwhelming for him at the beginning when we started working together because we were dancing together,” Dion said

The pair just clicked, and others took it as something more than a friendship. “We bonded right away as friends, we had a good time. It evolved," Dion said. 

So, when asked if she was single, Dion said that she was. "By the way, when I say 'I am single,' please leave me alone," she continues. "Thanks. I just wanna be alone," she said.

4. He's helped Celine deal with the passing of her husband

Dion's late husband Rene Angelil was the love of her life. In an interview with The Sun, Dion said: "I have never met another man in my life, never kissed another man in my life." Rene Angelil cannot be replaced, and the 51-year old said she will probably grieve for the rest of her life. The pair were married for 21 years and he not only served as her husband but as the manager of her career. They had three children, all boys.

Rene passed away at age 73 after a long battle with throat cancer. Munoz has been there to help her through a tough time. 

“The thing is that he's my best friend and we dance together and he did so much for me and even just holding my hand … it's something that I haven't had for a long time … A hug from a 6' 3" man, it was wonderful … and people really thought there was a romance going on,” she told Extra. “He did so much for me, for my mental health, my spirituality, my strength … my inner strength.”

5. He's gay

There are no details available about Munoz's romantic life outside of the rumors of him dating Celine Dion, which have clearly been proven wrong. He has not been said to have a girlfriend or a boyfriend. However, Dion was quick to tell InStyle that Pepe was gay in case anyone was still confused about the two having a romantic relationship.
