Singer Michael Buble has revealed the devastating emotional impact on his family of his young son’s battle with liver cancer.
In a searing interview, the star said of the diagnosis when Noah was three: ‘You just want to die. I don’t even know how I was breathing.
‘My wife was the same and even though I was the stronger of the two of us, I wasn’t strong. My wife was … I’m sorry, I can’t make it to the end of that sentence.’
Noah’s cancer is now in remission but Buble says the ordeal has made him question everything and he will quit his career after the release of his new album, called Love.
‘I don’t have the stomach for it any more. The celebrity narcissism,’ he confessed to Daily Mail Weekend magazine. ‘This is my last interview. I’m retiring.
‘I’ve made the perfect record and now I can leave at the very top.’
Buble, 43, and his wife, Argentinian actress Luisana Lopilato, 31, have two younger children – Elias, two, and 11-week-old Vida. The couple both put their careers on hold after Noah’s diagnosis in 2016.
