Slander Dept: Celine Dion's Hubby Explains 'Hush Money'

A lawyer for singer Celine Dion's husband, Rene Angelil, recounted in a Clark County courtroom details of a $2 million payment and an apology Angelil made to a woman who accused him of rape in 2000.

Angelil also underwent a blood test to screen for HIV, according to proceedings Wednesday in a felony extortion trial against the rape accuser's husband, Ae Ho Kwon.

But lawyer Martin Singer said Angelil, his client, always denied sexual misconduct with the woman, Yun Kyeong Kwon Sung, in a Las Vegas Strip hotel room.

"We wanted confidentiality to make sure if money is paid, no one will ever become aware of this allegation again," Singer said.
