Man breaks into Celine Dion's home to take a bath

Singer Celine Dion was presented with an awkward situation when she learned a man had broken into her home, raided her fridge and run a “nice warmish bath”, according to police.

A 36-year-old man was arrested after allegedly breaking into the singer’s luxury Montreal home, located in the suburb of Laval, which police were alerted to after the home’s alarm system was activated.

Laval police spokesman Franco Di Genova said the suspect was getting ready to take a bath when police arrived with a canine unit.

“He opened the water faucets, was pouring a nice warmish bath (and) he even managed to eat some pastry that was in the fridge,” he said.

Dion, her three children and husband Rene Angélil were not at the home at the time of the break-in.

Di Genova said police, who searched the house, started from the basement and worked their way up to the main floor where the man was discovered.

“The suspect was coming down the big staircase and was asking: ‘Hey, guys what are you doing here?'” Di Genova said.

“So the officers replied: ‘What are you doing here?’ and they proceeded to put him under arrest.”

The man allegedly jumped a fence to get on the property gained entry to the house after he found a garage door opener in an unlocked vehicle to gain access.

This isn’t the first time Dion’s luxury residence has been broken into. Di Genova said another incident took place in 2009 when a man jumped the fence, but was stopped by the security firm patrolling the property before he could enter the home.

Dion and Angélil also own an elaborate estate in Jupiter Island, Florida and a four-bedroom house in Las Vegas where the singer has a concert deal running until March 2014 at Caesars Palace.
